Meet Your Greensboro Chiropractors

Greensboro Chiropractor Dr. Rick Franks

Dr. Rick Franks, Greensboro Chiropractor

Like most of you, growing up I had no idea what chiropractor did. I would do what everybody else did… grab pills and eat them every time I felt bad. But something inside me kept telling me that was wrong and there was a better way to health. I attended college and began my teaching career but wasn’t happy. One night in a conversation with my dad over my future, a small voice from within told me to go become a chiropractor. I had no idea what chiropractors did and had never been to one. But the voice wouldn’t go away, so I began investigating it.

The more I looked, the more the chiropractic philosophy made sense to me. I learned the major premise behind chiropractic is that the power that made us in the first place is the same power that heals us and keeps us healthy. What a concept!!!

I learned so much

I also discovered the importance of a fully functioning nerve system and how it affects everything in our lives from our health to our work and play and just everyday general being. I began to study more and realized that it made much more sense than taking pills or shots “for relief of symptoms only.” A year later and against my family and friends’ “best wishes” I gave up what little I had accumulated and moved to Marietta, GA. to begin Chiropractic school at Life University of Chiropractic. Thirty years later the principles of chiropractic are still true and I have never looked back on my decision. I’m just glad I listened to that little voice inside.

I practiced in Smyrna, GA. for 15 years, running 5 offices, teaching other chiropractors, serving as vice-president of my state association and writing a book. Then my wife Martha and I fell in love with the lake. With no chiropractor here, we decided to bring our 3 boys, Jackson, Alan and Tyler (by the way, my boys were born at home, never had a shot and lived to tell about it!!!)  here for a little more wholesome life.

So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

All I can tell you is that if you knew what I knew, you’d do what I do and that’s get under regular chiropractic care.

Greensboro Chiropractor Dr. Tyler Franks

Dr. Tyler Franks, Greensboro Chiropractor

From the day of his birth, Dr. Tyler Franks has received Chiropractic care from his father, Dr. Rick Franks. Dr. Tyler grew up in the Lake Oconee area, attending Gatewood Schools and Athens Academy before moving to Atlanta to further his tennis career.

Dr. Tyler would often meet his father’s patients around town in which they would express their appreciation for how much he had helped them and their children and how much their lives had improved since getting under chiropractic care. After living very much of a healthy life under chiropractic care himself, and hearing of the experiences of his dad’s patients, Dr. Tyler came to the conclusion that more chiropractic care is what was needed in this world.

Dr. Tyler began his education at Georgia College and State University (Georgia College) on a tennis scholarship for four years where he received a degree in Exercise Science.

Afterwards, he attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia for four additional years of education where received his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree.

Dr. Tyler is now working full time with his father and looks forward to continuing his legacy in the lake area and helping people attain more of their God given potential in one of the world’s largest chiropractic offices.




Greensboro Chiropractor Dr. Jordan Galanos

Dr. Jordan Galanos, Greensboro Chiropractor

Dr. Jordan Galanos was born and raised in Port Huron, Michigan. He grew up with a passion to help people and has always wanted to be in a profession where he could do just that. As a multiple sport athlete most of his life, he was always pushing his body to the limits. Constantly dealing with aches, pains and injuries, his mother decided to take a conservative approach to his health and took him to see a chiropractor. Over the first few months of consistent chiropractic care he began to heal and his problems disappeared, but even more importantly, he saw his on field performance improve dramatically.

Today, Dr. Jordan is fulfilling his life mission of helping people restore and maintain their health through drug-free healthcare. Given his background in sports, he enjoys caring for athletes, but has a passion for helping people of all ages and backgrounds. He hopes to share the same life changing experiences he had in chiropractic with everyone of his patients, one adjustment at a time.



Greensboro Chiropractor Dr. Charlie Mantei

Dr. Charlie Mantei, Greensboro Chiropractor

Dr. Charlie Mantei was born in Montana but moved to Alaska as a teenager and spent most of his life there. So no matter how big of fish you have ever caught, he has probably caught bigger! His first experience with Chiropractic was in his early 20’s with an injury in the gym, one of those from complete agony to instant relief after the first adjustment kind of miracles. He had no idea at the time how chiropractic was more than just pain relief, that regular chiropractic care not only helped prevent injury but increased performance in the gym, at work, and in every aspect of just daily life. He now has a passion for educating patients that no matter what their calling in life; be it athlete, professional, or parent. Consistent chiropractic care equals consistently performing at the top of their game.

Dr. Charlie received his bachelors in Biological sciences from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and his Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta Georgia. His interests have included health and human performance for the entirety of his life and he has naturally gravitated to the spine and nervous system as being the key to every individual’s body being able to self-repair and experience optimal well-being. When he’s not removing nerve interference from people’s spines and giving joy to everyone he can. He is spending time with his beautiful and amazing wife, and his wonderful children.

“When the brain can talk to the body and the body back to brain without nerve interference, amazing results become every day!”
