As your choice chiropractic care team in the greater Myrtle Beach area, we are proud to offer a wide range of treatment options to help relieve your chronic pain and promote an optimal level of overall wellness. For those living with neck and shoulder pain, we offer advanced neck pain treatment that avoids the use of prescription medications or more invasive methods. Whether you were injured at work, in a sporting accident or an auto accident, we can help you find relief and promote natural healing.
Your neck, also known as the cervical spine, is made up of several small vertebrae that begin at the base of the skull. The cervical spine supports the weight of the head and allows for movement in nearly every direction. However, this great amount of flexibility makes the neck extremely susceptible to injury and pain. Whether these injuries arise due to everyday use or something more traumatic, they can become very bothersome and prevent patients from enjoying a full range of motion.
Shoulder pain is often attributed to common neck injuries and can cause patients to experience a decreased range of motion. Common shoulder injuries can make it nearly impossible to complete everyday tasks and are often accompanied by sharp pains, numbness, tingling, and stiffness in the neck area.
Common causes of shoulder and neck pain include:
With this type of injury, patients often complain of pain in one or both sides of the neck, at the base of the skull and down into the shoulder area. The pain can range from dull to sharp and may spread down into the arms and hands. Typically, if you begin to experience neck or shoulder pain that lasts for more than a few days, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our chiropractic care specialists.
Chiropractic adjustments work by targeting the root cause of your neck and shoulder pain. These gentle spinal adjustments are designed to treat your pain without the use of painkillers and are safe enough that they can be used on young children and expectant mothers.
Before recommending a treatment plan to relieve your neck muscle pain, we will complete a comprehensive chiropractic exam that includes details about your medical history and current health concerns and a physical examination. In certain cases, additional examination steps may be needed to get an accurate diagnosis, including X-rays. Once we have a complete diagnosis, we will then recommend a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your specific health and lifestyle needs.

Dr. Fico has been nothing short of a godsend to me….
I walked in with neck pain at a 7-8 on the pain scale. Dr. Fico worked me up with scans, x-rays and an examination and developed a treatment plan. I walked out two months later with a pain level of 2-3. Very happy me. I continue to go see Dr. Fico for regular treatments to stay well. Kristy, their nutritionist took me under her belt and provided me with natural remedies for my pain, anxiety, depression and stomach issues. I did a 10 day cleanse with guidance - Worth it! The staff is so very kind, compassionate and caring. I felt like I was going to see friends that cared about my entire wellbeing and health, not just my neck. Forever grateful!.
Meet with the expert practitioners at Strand Spine! You’ll enjoy the care, wisdom, guidance and accountability they provide. Working with Dr. Parada and Kristy Whitehead has helped me significantly in my progress towards a healthier, more productive life. My regular adjustments, prescribed exercises and nutrition plan have increased my energy levels, changed my eating habits and prepared me well for my marathon this past January. I’ve lost weight, increased my flexibility and feel great.

Dr. Fico was referred to me by Dr. Waters an Orthopedic Surgeon. I have also been evaluated by Neuro Surgeons with no hope short of surgery. I was in constant lower back pain, unable to stand or walk without the help of a cane. Dr. Fico and his very professional staff treated my wife and I like family.
Using the Spinal Decompression machine and spinal manipulation my compromised spine with two bulging discs, birth defects, began to heal. In only eighteen treatments I can now enjoy shopping for hours, travel in a car, vacation, and do normal house hold responsibilities without pain or limitations. I recommend the Strand Spine Institute to anyone that wishes to regain and maintain a healthy , happy life.
I was worse off than I thought and we talked about a long term plan rather than the quick fix I was used to. After recommending the DRX9000 for treating my neck and back problems, I was on board. But I have to admit, I didn’t have the highest hopes. My skepticism disappeared when we saw the x-rays of my spine after I had finished my treatments. The space that was missing between my lower discs from the initial X-ray was now back significantly. Having a multitude of tools at his disposal like K-Laser treatment definitely helped in my recovery.

Three years ago I came to Strand Spine Institute because I could not sit for any period of time without pain in my sciatic nerve. I had never been to a chiropractor but did not want to take drugs so I gave the chiropractor option a try. After taking a set of x-rays and discussing my lifestyle, Dr. Fico came up with a treatment plan which included Spinal Decompression, chiropractic adjustments every couple of days and ice daily. After a few weeks of this treatment, my sciatica had greatly improved and sitting for a period of time was no longer an issue. I did not want this to happen again so we discussed on-going treatment as well as wellness. I have continued monthly with Spinal Decompression, Chiropractic Adjustments and an occasional K-Laser treatment.
I have added probiotics to my supplements and changed to the Metagenics Wellness Essentials. All of these plus workouts with my personal trainer at the gym have greatly improved my back as well as my knees. The staff at Strand Spine Institute has been such a blessing in my well-being and even though I am 67 I feel like I am younger than that and able to do so much. Wish it would improve my golf game!!
