With a combined total of over 30 years of professional experience, Drs. Whelan and Dr. Erin Todd can put your back and neck pains to rest. Having seen over 25,000 patients, Whelan Chiropractic is trusted throughout the lowcountry for their pain-relieving treatments. 

HANDWRITTEN CARE 

Both doctors listen carefully to patient concerns and even take notes by hand, which some clients consider to be an unofficial biography of them, for those who have been with the practice for as many as 20 years. 

PATH TO PRACTISE

When Dr. Whelan was in college, he injured his back and had to see a chiropractor for recovery. It was in those moments that Dr. Whelan remembers, “I realized what an amazing profession it was.” 

Dr. Todd was involved in a bad accident when she was only 2-years-old and had to have multiple back surgeries. After receiving excellent care from local hospitals and physicians, Dr. Todd knew she wanted to help people in a similar way when she grew up. “Because of my past injuries, I have compassion for how they are feeling and can relate to the conditions and symptoms that many patients come into the office with,” says Dr. Todd. 

Dr. Whelan, who has worked as an extra in many films is also the go-to chiropractor for celebrities and professional athletes while visiting the Coastal South.
