Why Ozark Functional Wellness?

Search for the Root Cause

Oftentimes, the pain or discomfort is not where we think it is. My job is to search for the root cause of the problem and not just treat the symptoms. This could be as simple as a joint out of place putting pressure on a nerve to a food sensitivity that is causing you to have headaches. 

Holistic Approach

A holistic approach to health care means not just looking at one part of the body as if it exists by itself. Looking at the body, mind and spirit as a whole system is how we find balance.

Families Welcome

I love to see the whole family. I have families that drive from an hour or more away to see me. From babies to adulthood, everyone should be functioning at their highest degree. 

Activator Techniques Used

Whether you are scared to be "popped"/"cracked" or have osteoporosis, we have gentle techniques available. I tend to use this type of tool on very young children and people that have rigid guarding muscles. 

Emphasis on Muscular Involvement

Dr. Gross was a massage therapist for 16 years and this definitely influences his approach to Chiropractic care. He likes to test, then treat, then test again to be sure that there was a measurable improvement.

HERE'S WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING
HERE'S WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING

Really took his time...

I started seeing Dr Gross just after my insurance chiropractor copay jumped from $5 to $60! And less than a month later, I was involved in a super low-impact rear end collision. Thank goodness for Dr Gross! 

I never in a million years would have thought that small bumper tap would cause whiplash, but it did. I’m so thankful that Dr Gross worked around my work schedule and was able to see me and TAKE THE TIME to work on giving me range of motion instead of just doing a quick adjustment before the next patient was at his door.

I’ve been to several chiropractors over the years and I not only recommend Dr Gross but I trust him.

- Edith S. Springfield, MO

Kind and compassionate...

Dr Gross is very kind, compassionate and knowledgeable with his care. I have been seeing him for some ongoing neck and upper back issues and would highly recommend him! 

I really appreciate that he takes as much time as is needed to get you feeling better before leaving. No matter what part of my body is hurting whether feet, wrists, hips, back or neck he will do what he can to bring relief and will give me tips on what I can do at home to help as well. He incorporates soft tissue work into his treatments which has been really effective in helping me. 

Finding a Functional Medicine Chiropractor that is affordable has been such a blessing. He is there to help his patients get well! Whether you have on-going chronic issues or just want to maintain wellness through Chiropractic care, I would recommend checking him out!

-Jennifer C. Springfield, MO

No cookie cutter approach...

Dr. Gross is wonderful! His Chiropractic skills are the best I have encountered and he treats every individual based on their needs and problems. He takes his time talking with and evaluating each patient so no cookie approach of 15 minutes for each patient. 

His knowledge of functional wellness and natural treatments is excellent as well and he takes the time to do an indepth patient health questionnaire to assess the problems for the best treatment approach. 

I highly recommend Dr. Gross for Chiropractic care and for any health issue or health mystery you might be struggling with.

- Michele R. Springfield, MO

Caring, compassionate...

Dr. Gross is caring, compassionate and always exceeds my expectations with his knowledge and treatment. 

I highly recommend his care. He is knowledgeable in many modalities of holistic medicine and continually is pursuing additional education to improve care for his patients. 

I first came to him when my chiropractor was on maternity leave. I found his care to be superior and have remained his patient from that point until now.

- Barbara G. Springfield, MO

Muscle work is key...

When I went to see Dr. Gross, I had a stiff neck and a “crick.” 

He started by doing a massage, and then he did a manual adjustment. I felt so much better!! I've been a couple of times for the same problem, and he always fixes it. The massage is the key! 

Dr. Gross is super knowledgeable and very thorough AND affordable! His goal is always to get to the root of the problem.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine provides a method for re-balancing the body’s underlying physiological systems and addressing lifestyle issues that contribute to illness. When this is done, your biology’s inherent healing forces are unleashed and chronic illness is resolved naturally and quickly often without the need for costly pharmaceutical medications or invasive surgeries. In this way, functional medicine offers a unique approach to understanding the terrain of chronic illness and provides us a whole new way to address the epidemic of chronic disease we face in the 21st century.
We do not treat the individual diseases; we deal with underlying health dysfunctions in the individual patient. We do not prescribe or alter medications; we restore health. Our program works in conjunction with the patients prescribing doctor who will decide when and if the patient can reduce or eliminate any medication.
At Ozark Functional Wellness, health is being restored. Inflammation is being calmed. Blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol levels are normalizing. Hormonal imbalances are corrected. Stubborn weight is coming off. Energy levels are being dramatically improved. Pain and aches are reduced and resolved. Brain fog is lifted, and sleep difficulties are improved. This is all achieved naturally and safely.

"There is a vast difference between treating effects and adjusting the cause."
