Bryant Chiropractic Moves Downtown

July 2nd, 2012 by

Bryant Chiropractic has moved their office back to Main St, next to the Courthouse.

Dr. Wendell Bryant established the office in 1966, and Dr. Mark Bryant joined in 1988, 24 years ago.

They opened the Main St location in the early 90’s, stayed there till 2007, and have moved back this year.  The Trotter St. building was the original office built by Dr. Wendell, but it was too small, so they returned to the Main St office.

Bryant Chiropractic has added a new phone line; 367-BONE (or 2663)  now that’s easy to remember.
