Meet the Doctor

doctorDr. Drew McPhail is a gentle, caring & highly experienced chiropractor. He specializes in structural correction of the spine, scoliosis treatment, the diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue, and whiplash injuries. He also performs neuromuscular re-education and postural stress evaluations.

Dr. McPhail believes in natural healing; getting to the source of the problem and helping the body self-correct. His commitment is to get his patients well and healthy through wellness. That is healthcare without drugs which not only eliminates health problems but prevents them.

Dr. McPhail makes a conscious effort to explain things completely, to help educate his patients & also ensure his patients understand why he does what he does, and are comfortable with his treatment.

Dr. McPhail chooses to practice here in Summerville because having grown-up in smaller towns in the south, he and his wife Sherry know the importance of family and a tight knit community, and how the two of these go hand in hand. During his studies, they have lived in many different towns and none have had the feeling of community or the focus on family that they found when they visited a friend in the Summerville area. Being new parents, they wanted to establish themselves in a community that they felt would be optimal for raising family and one that their children could always call home. He is positive they have found this in Summerville.
