At Back 2 Health, we believe the very best results are achieved by giving patients personalized treatment and access to a comprehensive list of rehab services.

Enjoy Long-Term Healthwith Chiropractic Care

Many of the patients we see who are injured report that conventional methods like pain meds and surgery don't really solve their pain problems - they just mask them. When you throw in the risks associated with surgery and pain meds, alternatives like chiropractic care make a lot of sense. If you're looking for a safe, non-invasive treatment, combining the benefits of physical therapy with chiropractic adjustments is a great option for pain relief and overall well-being.

At Back 2 Health, our chiropractic physicians diagnose and treat patients with health problems associated with the body's muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

As the saying goes, a healthy spine equals a healthy person.

Just about every type of chiropractic care revolves around your spine. When your vertebrae are misaligned, the nerves surrounding them become compressed, resulting in pain. When a chiropractor restores your spine's natural alignment, it reduces your pain and other medical symptoms. To achieve pain relief, Back 2 Health chiropractors use focused pressure to restore healthy vertebrae motion and loosen frozen joints. This process allows the nerves along your spine to properly function and carry messages to and from your brain.

There are many benefits of using chiropractic care alongside physical therapy in West Ashley, SC, and other solutions like massage therapy. Some of the most common benefits of chiropractic care include:

Less Neck Pain

Less Neck Pain

Sitting in one spot for hours or frequently bending at work can cause horrendous neck pain. Whether from work or a car accident, our chiropractors ease that pain by realigning your spine, which reduces the tension on your neck.

Eases Back Pain

Eases Back Pain

The American College of Physicians says that doctors should recommend non-medical treatments for back pain prior to surgery. Chiropractic care helps tremendously in this regard, correcting subluxations through techniques like spinal decompression.

Helps Relieve Headaches

Helps Relieve Headaches

If you suffer from tension headaches that start in your upper spine or neck, chiropractic care may be the solution you need for relief.

Can Help Prevent Opioid Reliance

Can Help Prevent Opioid Reliance

Unfortunately, many people with back pain become addicted to pain meds like opiates. However, a study by the NIH found that adults who visited a chiropractor weren't as likely to receive an opioid prescription for pain when compared to those who only visited a medical doctor.

The Back 2 Health Chiropractic Care Process

Our team of chiropractic doctors excels at finding and analyzing improper vertebrae placement. Once those areas are discovered, they use advanced techniques to correct subluxations, returning your body to its proper alignment. This strategy is key in correcting vertebral subluxation complex, which can affect your long-term health and how your body functions.

Like other practitioners, our chiropractors follow common standards and procedures to diagnose and treat you with chiropractic care. On your first visit, we'll get your medical history, conduct physical, orthopedic, and neurological examinations, and may order lab tests for further info. We may also use X-rays and other essential tools to focus on your spine and its proper function.

If needed, our chiropractors may conduct a postural and spinal analysis to discover if vertebral dysfunction is affecting your nervous system or causing a skeletal imbalance, which lowers disease resistance and causes additional pain.

Enjoy Long-Term Healthwith Chiropractic Care

Massage has been used for thousands of years to promote relaxation and relieve pain. And while most people think of getting a massage as a treat, purposeful massage therapy demonstrates an incredible ability to heal and restore overall wellness. In fact, modern applications have been proven to be very effective when used to supplement physical therapy. A complete review by the Institute of Work and Health found that massage had measurable effects vs. placebo treatments. That's excellent news for patients who need physical therapy to help heal injuries.

The benefits of massage therapy for issues like back pain and shoulder pain are numerous and include the following:

  • Improved Circulation - Massage therapy helps blood move through congested areas, improving your body's ability to function.
  • Accelerated Injury Recovery - Rehabbing an injury can be a long, arduous process. Massage therapy accelerates your recovery, keeps you relaxed, and helps motivate you to continue physical therapy in West Ashley, SC.
  • Help with High Blood Pressure - Massages have been shown to lower your blood pressure in an all-natural way.
  • Better Posture - Weather due to an unresolved injury or aging, stiff and overworked muscles often result in bad posture. Massage can help relax your muscles and tendons, bringing your body back to its original alignment.
  • Improved Athletic Performance - Athletes who endure minor injuries on the court or field use massage to recover faster, allowing them to get back to training so they can improve.
  • Complementary Treatments - At Back 2 Health, we use massage to complement other services that our clinic offers, such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, and medical injections for pain or inflammation.

Inflammation & Joint Injections: Pain Relief When You Need It Most

If we're being honest, few people look forward to a medical procedure that involves needles. But the proper injection may reduce or even eliminate joint, nerve, muscle, or spinal pain plaguing you for years, all within a few hours. At Back 2 Health, we combine medical injections for immediate relief with other treatments like physical therapy in West Ashley, SC, that repair factors causing inflammation in your body, providing permanent results.

In many cases, inflammation is a good thing - it helps heal injuries and subsides when the healing process is finished. In many cases, however, inflammation doesn't go away. It actually becomes counterproductive, causing severe pain, swelling, restricted movement, and even structural damage that prevents normal bodily function.

What Are Inflammation and Joint Injections?

Joint and inflammation injections from Back 2 Health help relieve pain and inflammation by reducing blood flow and limiting immune system cells at the affected joint. These injections typically contain a corticosteroid and an anesthetic. The corticosteroid helps with inflammation by limiting blood vessel dilation, while the anesthetic helps with immediate relief of pain.

Generally, joint and inflammation injections can serve two purposes: for pain relief and for diagnostic purposes. As a diagnostic tool, these injections can help our doctors identify the source of pain you're enduring. As a pain reliever, injections help reduce inflammation around the affected joint, providing localized pain relief with few, if any, side effects.

What Are the Benefits of Inflammation and Joint Injections?

Patients who qualify for medical injections from Back 2 Health enjoy a number of short and long-term benefits, including:

  • Quick Relief - If you're suffering from intense pain, an inflammation injection may provide relief before you leave our physical medicine clinic in South Carolina.
  • Localized - Because these injections can be applied to a specific body part, like your knee, your irritation can be solved without affecting your whole body.
  • Long Lasting - One medical injection at our office can help with pain and inflammation for weeks, not hours.
  • More Movement - If you're suffering from severe inflammation, an injection from Back 2 Health can help restore your range of motion.
  • Dependability - Medical injections should still work even if you have grown accustomed to pain medicines and opiates.
  • Side Effects - Unlike invasive surgeries, you won't have to miss days or weeks away from work so that you can recover.

Patients at Back 2 Health Physical Medicine use joint and inflammation injections for a variety of conditions, such as:

  • Pinched Nerves
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain

  • Inflammation
  • Chronic Pain

Several hundred new homes are in the works on the edge of Charleston.

In two recent submittals to the city, Mungo Homes plans to build more than 800 homes in the 3,000-acre Long Savannah development in West Ashley.

The Irmo-based builder recently submitted plans for 568 houses on 156 acres on Bear Swamp Road off Bees Ferry Road.

The proposal comes after the builder submitted plans earlier this year to build 237 homes on about 56 acres at the end of Barons Drive.

A representative of Mungo Homes did not immediately respond for comment.

Developers have rights to build 4,500 homes in total on the property on the edge of Charleston and Dorchester counties.

In 2021, builders and environmental groups settled a challenge to the development to avoid some wetlands destruction and allow for natural water flow by removing older roadbeds used years ago for logging and phosphate mining.

The project also includes conserved green space, and a $250,000 donation by developers to a trust to fund water-management projects in the three drainage basins that the development covers.

More multifamily

A new apartment development is in the works for Johns Island.

Ninety affordable multifamily housing units are slated for 9.35 acres at 1725 River Road next to the entrance to Fenwick Hall Plantation, according to plans presented to the city of Charleston.

Get the best of the Post and Courier’s Real Estate news, handpicked and delivered to your inbox each Saturday.


The property is owned by the city, which paid $3.3 million for it in 2020.

Storing stuff

A Mount Pleasant-based real estate investment company recently acquired two self-storage properties in the Southeast.

Ziff Real Estate Partners bought a 44,875-square-foot climate-controlled facility in Anderson. The site, previously called Pearman Dairy Self Storage, will be called StoreEase.

Real Estate

The company also purchased a ground-up development tract in Summerfield, Fla., near The Villages master-planned community. When completed, the storage site will be 77,625 square feet with both climate- and non-climate-controlled units. It, too, will be a StoreEase facility.

Finding a home

The Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce now has a physical office for the first time.

The pro-business group has partnered with Pinnacle Financial Partners to lease a 2,000-square-foot space that’s designed to grow staff, hold meetings and have some events at 534 Johnnie Dodds Blvd.

Boom & Balance

Chamber president Jennifer Maxwell said the organization has aspired to have a physical presence in the town for several years.

“This is crucial as part of our plan to continue to grow and support the businesses and community East of the Cooper,” she said.

Charleston begins teardown of former Piggly Wiggly in West Ashley

Listen to this article

About three years ago, John Tecklenburg visited the “dilapidated” former Piggly Wiggly site at the corner of Sumar Street and Sam Rittenberg Boulevard in West Ashley during his campaign to be Charleston’s mayor.

“This was a symbol of the need for revitalization (of) West Ashley, a symbol of the need for that revitalization,” Tecklenburg said.

On Tuesday, the mayor began demolishing that symbol, stepping into an excavator and pushing the vehicle’s bucket through one of the abandoned grocery store’s windows.

Full demolition of the former Piggly Wiggly by Target Contractors LLC is expected to take place over the next few weeks.

The city bought the former Piggly Wiggly site last summer from Charlotte-based real estate investment firm Wintergreen Capital for $3 million, about $1 million more than Wintergreen paid for the property in 2014.

“This was a priority for us to take control of this property, as the mayor said, so we can start the revitalization,” said Peter Shahid, City Council member for District 9 and the chair of the city’s West Ashley Revitalization Commission. “What better way to do that than to revitalize a gateway to the birthplace of Charleston and the birthplace of South Carolina?”

Tecklenburg said the city will announce public engagement sessions about the site in July so that citizens can weigh in on what they would like to see done with the site. He predicted that a concept of a plan could be developed by the end of the year, depending on what is proposed.

“Would we have specific building plans if it’s a building? Maybe not yet,” Tecklenburg said. “That takes another step in hiring an architect. So maybe a year to really have a solid plan with construction plans.”

He said the city will have the funding for any project that is developed on the site because City Council designated the area a tax increment funding district in 2016, which reallocates taxes from increased property values to make public investments to try to stimulate private investment.

“It may take a little while, but we do have a funding source and are able to do something here,” Tecklenburg said.

Shahid said one of his top priorities is alleviating the dangers of merging traffic where Sam Rittenberg Boulevard meets Old Towne Road.

“The No. 1 concern for my constituents around this area was connectivity,” Shahid said. “Connectivity so that neighborhoods around different areas can have access to this property, to the shopping center behind us, to … across the street, Sojourn Coffee.”

Tecklenburg agreed, and said the primary reason the city wanted to purchase the former Piggly Wiggly site was to make the intersection and surrounding area more pedestrian-friendly.

The purchase of the site and the demolition of the former Piggly Wiggly building are part of the city’s West Ashley master plan, a project approved by City Council in February to revitalize the area.

Other parts of the projects include improving the West Ashley Greenway, more affordable housing options, upgrading playgrounds in the area and the West Oak Forest drainage project.

The mayor said, though, that it will take time to create the West Ashley envisioned by the plan.

“Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was West Ashley,” he said. “But as we tear down this dead Pig, it will be a symbol of good things to come for West Ashley.”

West Ashley, the area across the Ashley River from peninsular Charleston, offers a change of pace from some of downtown’s more tourist-centric areas of town. Home to more than 40 percent of the city’s population, the area boasts parks, restaurants, breweries and shopping catered to locals.

The 184-acre state park off of Old Towne Road offers an opportunity to explore both the city and the state’s modern origins. With walking trails, marsh views and a small zoo, the state park is a site visitors and locals alike can visit multiple times for different experiences.

West Ashley couple’s new sodary capitalizes on mocktail trend

The couple, who have worked in the industry for years, are two years sober.“We knew how it feels to be uncomfortable with limited options and wanted to change that,” said Danielle, who with her husband Brent, opened Sweatman’s Garden — a sodary and fondue Lounge at 90 Folly Road Boulevard in the South Windermere Shopping Center.Brent said they chose the location for a few reasons.&...

Danielle and Brent Sweatman understand the complicated relationship between sobriety and the food and beverage space. The couple, who have worked in the industry for years, are two years sober.

“We knew how it feels to be uncomfortable with limited options and wanted to change that,” said Danielle, who with her husband Brent, opened Sweatman’s Garden — a sodary and fondue Lounge at 90 Folly Road Boulevard in the South Windermere Shopping Center.

Brent said they chose the location for a few reasons.

“We live in West Ashley and have been living in Byrnes Down for about five years. Because we love our community, we wanted to provide a cool hangout spot close to home for both drinkers and non-drinkers.”

According to Brent, he and his wife were happy to fill a much-needed niche in the community.

“There are so many young people in the area that are becoming part of the sober curious movement and it was important to us to provide an inclusive space for the people that would want to take advantage of it,” he said.

And with the rise of mocktail culture, their timing couldn’t be better. According to research conducted by NielsenIQ, the non-alcoholic beverage sector is expanding rapidly as alcohol consumption declines, with popularity soaring over the past five years — a trend driven by Gen Z and millennials.

An Instagram-worthy experience

When the couple moved into what was Florence’s Lowcountry Kitchen, they were presented with a tabula rasa, enabling Danielle, as she says, “to go wild.”

She transformed plain, white walls into ones with a dark green hue and festooned them with dozens of thriving plants. Quirky and colorful seating areas are Instagram-worthy, like the attractive curved yellow couch which faces tufted lilac chairs and is separated by a ‘70s-era coffee table.

“We set them up to appear like little living rooms,” said Danielle, adding that she loves maximalism and color. “I was inspired by an art-deco, 70s funky vibe,” she said.

The offerings

Brent is no stranger to libation creation, having helped open the King Street Diner known as the Rarebit featuring homemade ginger beer, tonic, sodas and bitters.

“We’re doing 12 different taps, featuring our tonic and ginger beer and additional playful, fun stuff when it comes to our sodas, like plum rose citrus and a delicious habanero fresca sweetened with monk fruit, which is currently getting a lot of love, along with our root beer,” said Danielle.

For an additional $5, customers can add their choice of alcohol, or a cannabis-based infusion to their sodas. Sometimes customers opt for both non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages in the same evening.

“I’ve seen some of them take a non-alcohol root beer break from drinking,” said Danielle

The couple also decided to offer a limited menu featuring fondue.

“We’re serving savory fondue, like Mediterranean and beer cheese and also offering sweet options like white chocolate and milk chocolate,” said Danielle, explaining that she loves cheese and chocolate, but that they also wanted to make the menu a fun, interactive experience that doesn’t take staff too much time to create. For now, the business employs a total of seven staff members.

As for the future, Danielle said they are working on finding their bearings at the moment. “We were intentionally a little mysterious about being open to see what worked and what didn’t, but we may consider live entertainment in the future, if all goes well,” she said.

All of the new structures are under construction. Opening dates have not been announced.

Now open

Two new restaurant venues recently opened in southern Moncks Corner.

Dog & Duck is now serving at 2826 U.S. 52 in the Publix-anchored Moncks Corner Marketplace Shopping Center at Cypress Gardens Road.

It’s the fifth Lowcountry location for the pub. Two are in Mount Pleasant in Belle Hall and Park West, another is in Charleston on Clements Ferry Road in the Cainhoy area and one more is on Trolley Road in Summerville.

Gassing up

A Savannah-based convenience store and gas station chain continues to throttle ahead with new locations in the Charleston area.

Get the best of the Post and Courier’s Real Estate news, handpicked and delivered to your inbox each Saturday.


Parker’s Kitchen recently secured a ground lease for the property owned by Gregorie Land Co. LLC at 4315 Savannah Highway, where Circle K convenience store and gas station operates at S.C. Highway 162 near Rantowles Creek.

The five-year lease took effect Oct. 19 and can be extended four more times over the next 25 years, according to Charleston County land records.

The convenience store chain also is adding two more stores in the Charleston area.

Parker’s recently applied for a state license to sell beer and wine at 343 College Park Road in Ladson.

When it was first announced in 2020, plans included a truck stop, but nearby residents, environmentalists and county officials opposed the truck addition because they feared the disturbance of wetlands in Ancrum Swamp next to the 17-acre site.

Real Estate

Savannah-based Parker’s paid $950,000 for the property in 2020, according to Berkeley County land records.

Another Parker’s Kitchen is under development in Ingleside Plantation at the juncture of Palmetto Commerce Parkway and Weber Boulevard. The company has several other locations in the Lowcountry.

Parker’s also recently donated $135,000 to Lowcountry Food Bank through a round-up campaign from customers and a 25 percent match by the company.

New leases

A new nail salon and wellness spa are coming to Summerville.

Nail Garden LLC leased 2,800 square feet at 143 Berkeley Circle and Energy Enhancement Centers USA leased 3,080 square feet at the same address.

Real Estate

Brent Case and Hannah Kamba of Coldwell Banker Commercial Atlantic represented the landlord, Azalea 888 Zhou Tang LLC, in both transactions. Jenna Philipp of Palmetto Commercial Properties represented the spa tenant.

The retail site is near Azalea Square Shopping Center off North Main Street.

Now open

Hurricane Coffee will celebrate its grand opening Nov. 3-4 at 650 College Park Road, Unit H, in the Food Lion-anchored shopping center near Stratford High School on the edge of Goose Creek.

A portion of all sales from both days will be donated to Omar Shriners Pirate Unit.

The shop also will offer free coffee, including its special white espresso, to all first responders all the time as well as a 10 percent discount on other items on the menu for all first responders, nurses, teachers and all active and veteran military members. The shop also collects goods for victims of human trafficking and domestic abuse.

The shop previously operated from a food truck in a couple of nearby temporary locations.
