Carolina Rehab and Physical Medicine Center is a physical medicine, chiropractic and natural medicine practice, located in central Myrtle Beach, SC. We are a full service multidisciplinary office treating conditions involving all joints, muscles, and pain.
Our true focus is to improve movement in a functional way. Humans are designed to move in a specific way. This normal movement is the best way to move, it is the easiest way to move and it even protects joints from excessive wear and breakdown. However, due to injury or compensations, joints sometime begin moving poorly or in an incorrect way. This leads to joint pain and degeneration. Our goal is to correct this poor movement restoring normal function and decreasing pain. With true restoration of good, normal movement pain not only decreases but it doesn’t return.
Our team of providers will evaluate you with a thorough, yet non-invasive exam to understand your condition and the source of your pain. Your evaluation will consist of traditional neurologic and orthopedic testing as well as functional movement screens.
Our office is a new and more effective approach to age old problems. This is clear in our view of patients. We view everyone as an athlete. While you may not be a football player or a dancer, you still have to perform specific athletic events. Your athletic event may be lifting your child or grandchild, which is a squat coupled with a dead lift. These are moves used by Olympic weightlifters. They train these movements — do you?
Understand, we are not trainers and that is not our intent. We are very well versed in rehab protocols that we use to restore our patients to proper movement and to rid them of pain, and most importantly, keep that pain away.
Physical medicine and chiropractic are location specific, meaning we have to work on you in the right place, and you have to be seen in the right office.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you’ll find useful information and get to know us a little better.
