At Strand Spine Institute, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in Pawleys Island and Myrtle Beach, but please call us at (843) 979-2273 if you have any questions!

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Neil Fico has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.


K-Laser Therapy

Class IV K-Laser Therapy is an FDA cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser Energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain. It is a non-surgical, drug-free therapy that directly stimulates the body's repair mechanisms in superficial and deep tissues. We have seen great success with a multitude of conditions in our office. Please call and schedule an appointment today (843) 979-2273.


Spinal Decompression 

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive alternative to traditional spinal surgery for herniated discs and other spinal conditions that cause painful nerve impingement. Our DRX9000 motorized treatment table can impart precise degrees of flexion distraction force to the spine, increasing intervertebral space and drawing herniated or bulging discs back into their correct position. Disc degeneration is caused when the disc begins to dry out and the space begins to narrow; and over time, injury can occur causing muscle tension and pain. Through decompression, the pressure on your disc is relieved, allowing for the disc to heal.


Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Pawleys Island chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.


Corrective Exercises

At Strand Spine Institute, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.


Lifestyle Therapy

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!


Other Services 

Our holistic approach to health and wellness includes a variety of techniques and tips to help you achieve a higher quality of life. For instance, corrective exercises can help you improve your body's strength, flexibility, balance and injury resistance. Our lifestyle advice can help you identify unhealthy habits and replace them with healthy ones to support the "new you." Last but not least, we're proud to provide wellness products from such respected brands as Metagenics, Standard Process, Energetix and Foot Levelers. We even supply bite guards, back supports, and cervical pillows to help you keep your body comfortably aligned.
