Greystone Chiropractic opens third practice in Lexington

Dr. McCall Sink announced the opening of her practice located in her hometown of Lexington. The Greystone Chiropractic team promotes health, alleviates pain and strives to improve patients’ quality of life.

“We are excited about this new venture and the opportunity to provide Greystone Chiropractic services to the Lexington community,” Sink said. “Since I grew up in this community, I feel especially humbled that I’m able to return to the area and offer services that provide a positive, healthy impact to peoples’ lives. We pride our business on research-based care provided by friendly, knowledgeable professionals.”

Sink, the lead chiropractor of Greystone Chiropractic, owns and operates Blase Chiropractic in Asheboro and Greystone Chiropractic in Raleigh. She received her doctor of chiropractic degree from the Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri. She became an independent chiropractor at Blase Chiropractic in 2011 and purchased the business in 2014.

“At Greystone Chiropractic, we utilize a combination of hands-on spinal manipulation and alternative treatments to properly align the body’s musculoskeletal structure,” Sink said. “This allows the body to heal itself, while reducing the need for invasive surgeries and costly medications. Our procedures help restore joint mobility, reduce debilitating pain and improve patient overall quality of life.”

The ribbon cutting grand opening of the Lexington office is Aug. 30 at 5:30 p.m. The practice will be partnering with the Lexington Chamber of Commerce. Attendees can get free spine screenings, door prizes and discounts.
