"When I am asked why I'm still working, I have to think about why I got into Chiropractic in the first place. It was to help people. Yes, I would rather be at home, and our elected officials have made that an option with the small business relief package. However, the reason I am working as long as I am able, is because I'm helping the people who are helping us - the workers at our banks, Walmart, and Lowe's, the police, caretakers, and nurses in our community, and the people making our paper products and distributing them. When I look back over the last 2-3 weeks, helping the people helping us is the reason the office is still open."
- Dr. Blankenship
Thank you for the support and patience you have shown through this difficult time.
An anti-viral and anti-bacterial is being diffused throughout the office daily for surface (doorknobs, sign in area, etc.) and equipment cleanings after every patient. Our cleaning company also disperses EnviroShield on a regular basis. Wipes are available for your use as well.

On Monday, March 23, Dr. Blankenship contacted Governor McMaster's office regarding the latest updates for chiropractic care. We were forwarded a statement released at 4pm, March 23, 2020 from the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation. It is not recommended that chiropractic offices close at this time. We will continue to see patients with an abbreviated schedule while maintaining the highest standards recommended by the CDC.
