Meet Dr. Carrie Shippy, Chiropractor
Dr. Carrie Shippy is a chiropractor serving Darlington and the surrounding communities in Lafayette County.
Dr. Carrie uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Carrie takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Carrie will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Dr. Carrie's patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
