Grostic and grandson of Dr. John F. Grostic. The combined heritage and passion for upper cervical care have helped Dr. Grostic bridge the gap between the past and current applications of Grostic and related protocols. Dr. Grostic has contributed to several articles and books regarding the Grostic Procedure and Technique. He has also enjoyed speaking and lecturing on upper cervical related topics with an emphasis on historical relevance.
