We're providing exceptional, elite-level chiropractic care

Have you been to other chiropractors before and felt dissatisfied with your care? Did you feel like you got a cookie cutter approach to chiropractic when you really need someone who will take the time and effort to look at specifically what your body needs? At North Myrtle Beach Chiropractic we pride ourselves in going above and beyond our patients’ expectations. This is not your average chiropractic practice, we strive for excellence. Not only do our chiropractors provide exceptional chiropractic adjustments specifically for your individual needs, but we also have a huge selection of other therapies and modalities that we offer in our office. You will leave our office feeling better and will achieve your goals faster. 
 

We're changing the game.

We know finding a great chiropractor that offers comprehensive services can be hard.

About Us

NMB Chiropractic is owned and operated by Dr. Brandon & Melinda Morris. We purchased the business in April 2021 after the passing of the former owner, Dr. Walter. While we never had the opportunity to meet Dr. Walter, we have heard wonderful things from his former patients and employees and we hope to continue his legacy. We relocated our family to the NMB area after living in Florence, SC for 5 years. Since meeting, Brandon & Melinda dreamed of someday owning a chiropractic wellness business together and are so proud to own that business today. God called us to this particular office through multiple signs and synchronicities. We have had many trials and tribulations since purchasing the business in 2021, but it has all been worth it to serve our incredible patients and follow God’s plan. Living a holistic lifestyle as a family is incredibly important to us and we hope to bring that from our family to yours.

Meet The Team

Dr. Brandon Morris earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in 2014. He earned his Bachelors of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry from Francis Marion University in 2007. It was during his time at FMU that he was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy, a neurological condition involving inflammation of cranial nerve VII resulting in facial paralysis. After suffering for several months and having several failed attempts with different treatment options through multiple medical professionals, he sought chiropractic care as a last resort. After his first chiropractic adjustment, he had total recovery of Bell’s Palsy within just 2 days after treatment. This sparked a passion in Dr. Morris to learn and understand the nervous system to the best of his ability so that he could change others’ lives as his was. This shifted his career goals from pharmacy to chiropractic. His philosophy is that with optimal nervous system function, along with healthy lifestyle choices (diet, exercise, sleep, etc), the body’s innate intelligence will allow the body to heal itself. As a chiropractor, he has helped thousands of individuals throughout multiple communities in South Carolina during his career. Prior to purchasing NMB Chiropractic, he practiced in Florence for 5 years and was been awarded runner up for best chiropractor in 2019 & 2020 in “Best of the Pee Dee”.

Dr. Morris is licensed in Physiotherapy and is certified in Integrative Dry Needling. Dr. Morris excels in a variety of different chiropractic techniques such as Gonstead, Pierce, Diversified, CST, Thompson, Webster, and Activator. He is also very experienced in adjusting infants and children and is in the process of becoming ICPA certified. Dr. Morris is passionate about the treatment of babies and children with tethered oral tissues (tongue, lip, and buccal ties) as his own children needed specialized treatment for TOTs. 

God has blessed Dr. Morris with an amazing, supportive family. His wife, Melinda, and two children, Indy & Sawyer love to spend time as a family doing outdoor activities, camping, kayaking, hiking, and traveling.
