Our staff is the heart of our office. We pride ourselves not only on the quality of care we provide, but on the quality of the connection we share with our patients.
Craig Banks, DC, CCSP®
Dr. Craig Banks is a 2003 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Davenport, IA. He is originally from Youngstown, Ohio, where he attended Liberty High School. Dr. Banks completed his undergraduate work at Kent State University, and initially began on the path to being a neurosurgeon through Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine (now NEOMED).

Massage Team: Amanda Beck, Lisa Prochaska and Ashleah Beck
We are proud to have three of the best massage therapists ever at Pinnacle Chiropractic! Amanda Beck, LMT, Lisa Prochaska, LMT (left to right) and Ashleah Beck (pic forthcoming) know just what buttons to push to get rid of the muscle spasm and tension that is keeping you down. Schedule with them (if you can get in!) to feel better than you have ever felt and get on the road to optimum health!
Kodiak is the official office mascot. He is there most days during the winter and some days during the summer. Pinnacle Chiropractic works closely with several animal charities, and during one of the P.A.W. animal drives, Kodiak was up for adoption at the Portage County Dog Warden’s office. Dr. Banks and Courtney couldn’t resist, and he came home with them to join their huskies, Kyro and Trinity!
