Peak Performance Chiropractic in Franklin, Tennessee

Peak Performance Chiropractic is located on the southern side of Franklin, Tennessee. It was opened by Dr. Carolyn McGrath-Yates and Dr. Jeff Yates in May of 2013. After graduating from chiropractic college, Dr. Carolyn and Dr. Jeff did extensive looking all over the country for just the right place to establish their practice. It was on a drive home from Chicago when they realized in all the places they had visited, upon speaking with others about their dreams, the Nashville area was nearly always mentioned. Taking this as a sign, they visited the Nashville area and fell in love. After learning more about the area and meeting people in the community, Dr. Carolyn and Dr. Jeff decided to make Franklin their home and open their clinic.

Peak Performance Chiropractic is a boutique style clinic utilizing the most current research evidence ensuring the best treatments are provided and the most informed recommendations are offered. We treat more than just necks and backs; our advanced training enables us to work on feet, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders and the jaw!

The foundation of the treatment in our office is a combination of: chiropractic adjustments; muscle work (which includes Dry Needling, Cupping, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation and Myofascial Release by hand); therapeutic exercise prescription to improve strength & mobility; and education about the true cause of your condition and ways to modify your activities to avoid reoccurrence. Our main goal is to get you back “to your renewed self.”
