Amanda Baum DC, CACCP
Amanda Baum DC, CACCP, began her collegiate journey at Kent State University, majoring in Exercise Physiology. She then went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida to earn her doctorate. While completing her doctorate, Dr. Baum specialized in Pediatrics, Neurology, Women's Health Issues and Applied Kinesiology (AK).
Upon graduation in 2010 with her doctorate as a Chiropractic Physician, she has joined Ragon Chiropractic and she is happy to be back in the Green area. Generations of her family are from Green and it has always felt like home. She has seen Green grow over the years and yet it has always had a close community feel where you still know your neighbors.
Dr. Baum has a passion to teach patients the importance of functional movement and to strive for optimal health. For patients that have been in chronic pain, on pain medicine, unable to perform or enjoy everyday activities, chiropractic care can be a miracle for them. It doesn't have to be a major life changing miracle, but being pain free or being able to play with your children and not hurting could mean the world to someone that couldn't do it before. Pain is depressing and getting out of it will uplift your whole body, mind, and spirit.

Elise Grasse DC
Elise Grasse, DC, started her education at The University of Akron, obtaining her BS in Biochemistry. She then went on to New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY to earn her doctorate. During her time at NYCC, Dr. Grasse specialized in Applied Kinesiology, Women’s Health, Pediatric Care, and ConnecTX (an instrument assisted soft tissue technique).
It was Dr. Grasse’s background in ballet and on-going injuries that inspired her to pursue a career in chiropractic. Dr. Grasse was first introduced to chiropractic when her father, an LMT, began working for a chiropractic office while Dr. Grasse was a teenager. Dr. Grasse experienced on-going injuries while dancing with the Canton Ballet in the Stark County region. It was through chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology techniques that lifelong food allergies were diagnosed. Dr. Grasse’s quality of life improved significantly. Dr. Grasse thought that if one chiropractor could positively influence her life and health to this degree, imagine what she could do for several others if she also joined the field.
Dr. Grasse uses her background to evaluate patients based on nutrition, biomechanical movement patterns, and lifestyle choices to provide individualized, patient-centered care. Dr. Grasse strives to continue learning about various chiropractic techniques to ensure patients are feeling their best and performing at their highest level. She hopes to work with you in all stages of life to provide the highest quality of life.
