Whether you're a professional golfer struggling with a nagging injury, an individual suffering the after-effects of an auto accident, or just someone who wants to help their family members remain as healthy and pain-free as possible for life, you've come to the right place at Advanced Spinal Care. Our Charleston and Summerville, SC chiropractor, Dr. Alykhan Shariff, can administer a number of natural, non-invasive healing modalities to help you get healthy, functional and comfortable again. Our services and techniques include:
Our chiropractor can employ precise chiropractic adjustments to correct alignment and positional problems in specific joints. This technique not only helps to relieve joint pain and stiffness; it can also normalize your spinal alignment, taking unnatural stresses off of your body and improving nervous system function.
Dry needling is a non-acupuncture method of inserting a needle into pain-generating areas of muscle tightness called trigger points. The needle doesn't inject medicine; instead, its mere presence relaxes the tension in the muscle fibers, relieving pain, and spasms.
Massage therapy works beautifully alongside chiropractic care and other techniques to ease pain, stress, inflammation, and muscle tightness. It also boosts blood and lymph flow for faster healing and better overall health.
Corrective exercises can help you regain flexibility or strength lost to an acute injury, surgery, or chronic condition. We can prescribe an individualized exercise program you can follow at home.
Are your eating and lifestyle habits impairing your health? We can provide valuable advice to help you support your ongoing wellness.

Dry Needling is a treatment technique often used by chiropractors and physical therapists to eliminate trigger points within muscles and other soft tissues. It requires using a sterile acupuncture needle that is inserted into the trigger point, causing an immediate "release" of the trigger point. This reduces pain, muscle tension, and increases mobility.
Whiplash is an injury that results from sudden acceleration-deceleration forces on the neck. The term encompasses a variety of issues affecting muscles, joints, bones, ligaments, discs, and nerves.
