Meet Dr. Fico

Pawleys Island Chiropractor Dr. Neil Fico

Your Health is my Primary Concern

We Live in one of the Most Beautiful Parts of the Country

Dr. Fico of Strand Spine Institute

We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country – I feel privileged to play a role in helping my patients reach their true health potential so that they can actively enjoy this beautiful area we’re blessed to call home. Whether its playing golf, walking on the beach, biking, surfing, or many of the other countless ways you might savor the Grand Strand, I am passionate about keeping you active, well and pain free. Our ultimate satisfaction comes from truly caring about our patients, and improving the quality of their lives.

Away from Strand Spine Institute

My wife Becky and I have been blessed with two sons, Neil and Tyler, and twin daughters, Kate and Clare. As a fitness and sports enthusiast, when I’m not in the office helping patients I enjoy spending time with my family, playing golf, fishing, hunting, boating and traveling. I’m also a big fan of Penn State Nittany Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers football.

The chiropractic wellness model is at the center of our family’s lifestyle. My wife and I are raising our children to be proactive about their health rather than reactive. We hope to teach our children that health is about the choices you make every day from how you move and think to sleep and eat. Regular exercise, mental attitude, sleeping habits, proper nutrition along with regular chiropractic adjustments to eliminate physical, emotional, physiological, and environmental stresses from our body are all key to becoming healthy and staying healthy! 

We all have our spines checked weekly to correct subluxations and to make sure our bodies are properly adapting to the physical, chemical and emotional stresses that are an inevitable part of daily life - despite our best efforts to minimize them.  As a result of our lifestyle and regular chiropractic adjustments we are rarely sick but when we do get sick we find it is typically short-lived!

My Chiropractic Education

A native of Pittsburgh, PA, I attended Pennsylvania State University where I played baseball and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology. I received my Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University of Chiropractic in Marietta, GA graduating with Cum Laude distinction.

We are actively involved in the community and major supporters of many local charitable causes. I am a Board member of Friendship Place and the Knights of Columbus as well as an active member of Precious Blood of Christ Catholic Church and the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce.

Don’t wait until you experience a health crisis to make your health a priority.  A lack of symptoms does not equate to good health Contact our Pawleys Island office for a thorough health evaluation – we look forward to being a part of your journey to health!
