INDIAN LAND — Special to the Fort Mill Times
There’s a new chiropractor in town, Dr. Cory Broyles.
Traffic flies on U.S. 521, so you may have missed the new sign for Broyles Chiropractic. It’s located just north of the intersection of S.C. 160 and U.S. 521, beside Donatos Pizza at 9945 Charlotte Highway (U.S. 521). Broyles took over for Costas Chiropractic late last year.
The new doctor is a Clemson grad and is affiliated with Pinnacle of Tulsa, Okla. He said his wife was already working in the area (at the Ballantyne Spa and Hotel) and he’s been looking to join her and work in the area. The couple has a 4-year-old child and another on the way in a few months. They relocated from Greenville.
He is assisted in the office by Meg Rich, of Waxhaw, N.C.
Broyles is excited about taking over Costas’ patients.
“It’s really fun working with them and treating them,” he said. He hopes the practice will grow by word of mouth.
Broyles Chiropractic and Sports Medicine specializes in chiropractic and acupressure for sports-related injuries but cautions that chiropractic is meant to be used to prevent injuries not just a place to go after you’re injured.
“It’s not symptom-based; it’s wellness based,” Broyles said.
Chiropractic care is based on the nervous system and keeping it well. When the spine goes out, it puts undue pressure on the nerves, causing pain.
“Adjusting the spine lets the nervous system work optimally. It lays the foundation for health,” Broyles said.
The practice brochure states: “All kinds of conditions are treated with chiropractic care beyond neck and back pain, such as colds or ear infections, PMS, spinal or disc problems, arthritis, insomnia, stress, vision problems, headaches, allergies, bed-wetting, colic, high blood pressure – the list is long! And yet, please remember, the goal of chiropractic treatment is not the treatment of disease but rather the enhancement of health through the reduction of spinal nerve stress.”
Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and 3 p.m.-6 p.m., and Fridays from 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
Broyles Chiropractic takes clients from Medicare; Blue Cross, Blue Shield; and various HNS insurers including: CIGNA, Medcost, Primary Physician Care, Absolute Total Care and Select Health of S.C., plus First Choice, First Choice Kids and First Choice VIP Medicare.
The office phone number is 802-8601.
