Dr. Gary L. Griffin and his team follow a philosophy of treating each patient as an individual, so much so that they refer to each patient as their guest. Dr. Griffin’s office schedules only one appointment at a time, giving each guest a heaping dose of undivided attention and virtually eliminating long wait times and attempts to break the land speed record for thumb twiddling. Once inside the sunny yellow treatment room, guests can relax in the thickly cushioned office chair amid an arsenal of up-to-date equipment such as laser dental technology and a flat-screen TV. During initial appointments, Dr. Griffin looks deeply into medical histories and works with guests to develop custom treatment plans to fit their needs and expectations.
Goose Creek Cycle galvanizes two-wheelers with a variety of elusive parts and maintenance services to keep customers coasting. The skilled cycle technicians begin the basic bike tune-up by adjusting the front and rear shifting and brake pads, which ensures that all velocipede-vessels will sail smoothly, dock on a dime, and outrun gifted children demanding today's newspaper. A truing is then performed to wipe out wobbles and minor dips, followed by a relubrication of chafed chains using a light chain oil, such as Tri-Flow. Finally, headsets and hubs are adjusted, and tire pressure is calibrated to ensure a cushy ride. Before mechanics return bikes to the wheeled wilderness, the team will give the spoked chariot a once-over to diagnose any replaceable parts, tighten up bolts, and fluff pom-pom handlebars.
The bona fide bone and muscle experts at Shelby County Chiropractic provide service and care that promote overall health and well-being. During the initial examination, an experienced chiropractor—either Dr. James Stapleton or Dr. David Dahlkamp—will review your medical history, feel your framework, and ask your bones to pose for x-rays (if necessary) to determine whether or not they are filled with caramel. Based on the findings, the doctor will devise a treatment plan to address any issues. After the exam and planning sesh, either on the same day or during a separate visit, you can lie back and enjoy a relaxing one-hour massage from one of Shelby's on-staff massage therapists, who will make you feel as loose and limber as a marionette made out of chocolate pudding.

The red roofs of Shamrock Farms’ hand-built barns appear amid 180 rolling acres of Kentucky Bluegrass, interrupted only by a 4-acre lake. In 31 ventilated stalls, Saddlebreds and Gypsy Vanners—including everything from show horses to yearlings—enjoy sunny views and wait for their chance to run through the pastures or one of the 55’x55’ indoor arenas. The Farms’ foundation stands on two core principals; safety and good horsemanship. Those principals are practiced during the lessons they offer for riders of all ages– from beginners to advanced students. During lessons, as students achieve personal goals, they are also taught riding fundamentals such as grooming, tacking, and untacking. Shamrock Farms also hosts an active youth club, popular horse showings– available to interested adults and children– as well as seasonal camps.
