HEALTHSOURCE BECOMES DANIEL ISLAND CHIROPRACTIC
HealthSource, owned and operated by Dr. Jimmy Smith, has a new name. The clinic is now known as Daniel Island Chiropractic. According to a press release, the reason for the change is that Dr. Smith is not re-newing his franchise agreement.
“He enjoyed his time being a HealthSource clinic, but has decided to stay local with the Daniel Island feel of our community,” stated the release. “The team of Daniel Island Chiropractic will still be providing the same exceptional service to its Daniel Island patients that you have been accustomed to over the past 17 years.”
The practice specializes in chiropractic, rehabilitation, and sports injuries for all ages. Some new staff members have also joined the team. Dr. Brantley Meier, a native Charlestonian and graduate of Bishop England High School, has been treating patients since January. Dr. Meier played baseball and graduated with a degree in Kinesiology from Charleston Southern University. He was also drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers to play center field.
“Dr. Meier brings a unique skill set to the practice and has been getting exceptional results with his patients,” the release continued.
A full time massage therapist is also now on the Daniel Island Chiropractic staff. Melissa Skeans specializes in myofascial release techniques, stretching programs and overall health and wellness. She is described as “a valuable addition to the practice” and brings seven years of experience working with chiropractic patients. Skeans also provides one hour massages. According to the release, Sarah Patterson is still managing the office and has been with the practice for 10 years.
One other change related to the clinic is that Dr. Smith is not treating patients at this time due to his development of an autoimmune disorder called Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.
“He has taken some time off the tables to find a solution to this condition,” the release stated. “He is looking to help others with this condition as well through natural and holistic alternatives. Dr. Smith is still actively involved in the practice and wants everyone to know that the concerns and prayers being expressed from his patients and community are greatly appreciated by him and his family. It means a great deal to him that so many in the Daniel Island community are concerned.”
