I came to Swain Family Chiropractic to address my neck and lower back issues. Dr. Swain is helping me by continuing to manage the pain by treating my neck and back with adjustments designed especially for my problems. I am now able to continue with my everyday life and enjoy my usual activities. The staff is friendly and helpful. My overall experience has been positive and what I was looking for in my chiropractic care. I would recommend Dr. Swain to anyone needing any kind of pain relief.

I was experiencing lower back pain and was unable to walk for long periods of time. Dr. Swain has helped me by providing a personalized plan and explaining the cause of my pain. I am slowly feeling a difference after having daily pain for so long. The one on one consultation and report of findings was a great help to me in understanding what I needed to heal. I have enjoyed my experience at Swain Family Chiropractic. The staff has been very friendly. I would recommend Dr. Wain to anyone suffering from back pain.

I have only been going for 1 week now and I can't tell y'all how this team has made me feel, as though I have been coming for years! Dr. Ron is so personal and the time he takes to actually explain what's going on with your body is just truly amazing! I learned more today at my Report of Findings appointment then I have ever learned from any other doctor! I am excited to have my body on its way to natural healing over the next year.

I have been going to see Dr Ron and his wonderful staff for 2 months. The service and atmosphere are so welcoming, friendly and yet very professional. I feel great! They have really catered to my needs with very good results. I highly recommend them.
-Karen H. ~ Summerville, SC
Dr Ron has a fantastic team, all professional and personable just as Dr Ron. I could barely walk when I started with him and with all his magic I'm on the right road once again. Thanks Swain Team!
-Carol C. ~ Summerville, SC
Great staff! Felt very comfortable there! Dr. Ron was fabulous and I feel so much better!
-Keri ~ Summerville, SC
Great staff! I’m not much on ANY doctors...but after giving Dr. Ron a try...I do feel a difference in my back!
-Keith ~ Summerville, SC
Such great, sweet, genuine people who really care!
-Lindsey ~ Summerville, SC
Yesterday was the first time I'd ever been to a chiropractor Dr Ron was extremely nice and thorough in explaining my condition. I got a adjustment and woke up this morning pain free no stiffness! I feel better right now than I felt in 15 years... The difference is amazing! I highly recommend Swain Family Chiropractic.

So my back hurt, and it was pretty bad. My work is very physical, and the pain kept me from performing at my normal level. The man I work for suggested that I go to a chiropractor, as he had done. Years ago I had an accident that gave me multiple screws and plates in my pelvis as a souvenir. They say we fear what we don’t understand…couple that notion with the seriousness of my old injuries and yeah, I was nervous about the prospect of allowing my spine to be wrung like a wet towel. When driving, in addition to my normal lumbar pillow I slipped a 2 pound bag of rice behind me as well. At work I had to get help for duties that I normally would do alone. After the initial consultation and evaluation I had much information but still nothing to help me comprehend the actual experience of being “adjusted.” I had to find relief from this pain that was acutely demanding my attention. I was out of options. The ER medicines were not working. Dr. Swain was genuine and not selling hype of any kind. I decided to give chiropractic medicine a try. He had me climb onto an apparatus and I heard my spine make noises as he pushed here and there. Afterwards I stood up and nothing was different. I still had pain, but I was not paralyzed or dead! I was very pleased. I came back and over time my pain faded and I put the bag of rice into the trunk of my car. There is something attain-ably simplistic to Dr. Swains approach to health. We all know that we should choose to eat a balanced diet. We all know that we should exercise mind and body. We all know that we should avoid stresses, emotional or chemical. I have been coming to appointments for 10 weeks or so and I am back to my normal activity and strength.

Dr. Swain and staff are the kindest, caring, genuine and passionate people in public service. Whatever your Chiro needs, big or small, they can cover them ALL! I HIGHLY recommend them!
Best chiropractor in the business. Warm, kind, friendly, and professional! Would recommend Swain Family Chiropractic to everyone! Thank you Dr. Ron!
Dr. Ron is outstanding and focused across the board. After initially helping me to rehabilitation and quicker healing after pancreatic surgery several years ago, his weekly program schedule helps to insure better wellness, overall health, flexibility, and "lifestyle maintenance." He is highly recommended for the entire family, at all age and activity levels to achieve healthy life style focus. See Dr Ron for an initial evaluation and overall objective for your lifetime goals in health and wellness.

Before beginning chiropractic care, I had accepted and allowed past injuries to interfere with my ability to be fully functional in the workplace and in everyday life. For 17 years Carpal tunnel created pain and problems with computer use, driving, gardening, and simple household chores. I also suffered from lack of mobility in my neck causing pain, difficulty driving, sleepless nights, and ever-decreasing muscle tone due to the inability to perform simple daily exercise. As I have grown older, hip and leg pain has caused difficulty sleeping, sitting and driving.
Chiropractic care has changed all that!
Your use of the decompression table combined with heat therapy and careful spinal manipulations has helped me to maintain steady improvement in my mobility both at home and at work. Knee, leg and hip pain no longer keep me from comfortable driving, restful sleep and healthy exercise. I sleep better, eat better and generally feel better since beginning treatment with you. This makes the people around me very happy.
I also appreciate that you evaluate my progress regularly and show me the progress on my scans. It’s encouraging to see black and white evidence that my pains (and improvements) are not all in my head!
Chiropractic care has enabled me to resume a full and healthy lifestyle, leaving behind the unhealthy “normal” that I had come to accept as inevitable and forever.
Thank you, Dr. Ron, for the expert care, encouragement and genuine concern that you have extended to me while in your care.

I started coming to Swain Family Chiropractic because of pain in my right hip and leg. I was unable to take care of the children in my daycare due to the pain in my hip. Because of the pain on my right side I was leaning all of my weight on my left side so by sticking with regular adjustments my hip pain has subsided and I have improved immensely.
I was miserable due to the pain in my back radiating down into my legs. I couldn't walk very far or even stand through a whole song at church without severe pain. I was in pain for 3 months before I saw my MD. He gave me medication and sent me to therapy. I went to therapy for 3 months with no improvements. I was going to go to a surgeon when someone recommended Dr. Ron. After 3 adjustments I had relief. I feel normal again. I had never been to a chiropractor before and I would recommend Dr. Ron.
I started going to Swain Family Chiropractic due to low back pain. I feel better now and am more active after regular chiropractic visits. I like Dr. Swain better than other chiropractors because he takes the time at each appointment to evaluate my spine and make only the necessary adjustments. Other places I felt like it was more "assembly line", same thing every time.
Dr. Swain and his staff are always very warm and welcoming when I came in for my appointments. The office is very clean, neat and professional. Dr. Swain explained everything in his report of findings so I could understand it, and I am feeling a lot better since I have been coming to the office.
I started coming to Dr. Swain because I was having back, knee and headache problems. I was impressed on how smart and knowledgeable Dr. Swain is. He thoroughly explained each x-ray so that I could understand what was going on in my body. I use to get really bad migraine headaches, and they have since gone away. I also have little to no pain anymore in my back and hips since coming to his office. My knee pain is completely gone. I am feeling much better since I started my treatment here.. The staff is always so friendly, and the office is clean and welcoming. I would recommend chiropractic care to anyone in pain or for maintenance care.
I love Swain Family Chiropractic! Everyone is helpful and friendly. I have RA and asthma. I came to this center because my orthopedic doctor told me I would have to have a hip replacement when the pain became very severe. I limped and could not stop the pain in my groin and thighs. Dr. Swain, through manipulation, stretching, heat, and massage therapy stopped the pain. Both doctors are kind and helpful and concerned for their patients' well being. Thanks for caring.
I ended up at Swain Family Chiropractic Chiropractic through a living social deal for a massage. Included in the massage was a free chiropractic consultation. I must admit I was a bit skeptical. As a dancer I do a lot of wear and tear on my body and at the time I was experiencing chronic pain in my neck, middle and lower back. I've also experience some tendinitis in my left heel and ankle. I also noticed that I was suffering from fatigue and mild to severe headaches on a day to day basis. I was very eager and interested to get pain free. What I love most about Dr. Ron and Dr. Eric is that they are very personable and make it a point to really educate their patients about the ins and outs of chiropractic and how it relates to that patient.

My headaches are far and few between now and I feel like I have much more energy. I am so glad that I decided to give Chiropractic a chance, more importantly that I ended up at Swain Family Chiropractic. I know I'm in good hands!
I have been seeing Dr. Swain for well over a year now, and couldn't be any more pleased with the results! On more than one occasion I have had sudden, sharp pain in either my back, neck, or shoulders, and Dr. Swain was able to immediately see me and alleviate the pain naturally! The same goes for migraines! I used to have migraines pretty regularly, now they are few and far between! I see him regularly now, approximately once every other week, and I am extremely happy with the results. I recommend him to anybody looking to improve their health in a natural way!
I have been involved with medical group practices for more than 30 years and as a traditional “MD” type of person, I had not placed much faith in Chiropractic physicians or their services, the past 30 tears. Recently, as a result of a presentation by Dr Ronald Swain, at my local Chamber of Commerce event; I started a regular chiropractic regiment for spinal adjustments at Swain Family Chiropractic. These regiments are spine adjustment sessions with Dr Swain, 2 days a week, to adjust my spine, neck and lower back. After the adjustments are finished; I am then put on a “Continuous Motion” device for 15 minutes to stretch my lower back, hips and legs. Also on occasion, I am given a full back and lower spine mechanical massage by a therapist. My walking & standing pain is gradually disappearing. Dr Swain's offices are new, clean & the staff is well organized. I recommend Swain Family Chiropractic to anyone wanting to eliminate back pain without surgery.
Dr. Ron's THE BEST! I tell him that after every adjustment! I have been a patient for nearly two (2) years. I initially went because of horrific pain in both knees& was walking with a cane. After a mere three (3) visits, my pain had subsided and the cane was history! Since that day of being set free from suffering, I have continued to follow Dr. Ron's recommendations. I am thoroughly convinced that I am walking today because of Dr. Ron! He(and his staff) are like family. He is not only filled with extreme knowledge but, also, with deep compassion. I have referred not only my family and friends, but when I meet a total stranger who is in pain, they are certain to get a prayer and one of Dr. Ron's business card!
We LOVE this practice! Tim was previously told he would need additional surgery on his neck(injury) But because of these treatments, no surgery will be needed!! He is practically pain free now, and has much better range of motion. His severe back spasms now rare. I feel great every time I receive adjustments. Dr Swain treats all patients like they are family. He cares and educates everyone about how to take the best care of your body. We highly Recommend Swain chiropractic to everyone we know.
I started going to Swain Family Chiropractic when I was 6 months pregnant. I had never received chiropractic care previously, and was simply amazed at how Dr. Swain was able to make me comfortable during the most uncomfortable months of my life. I am so grateful to have found his practice, and highly recommend to all!
Before going to see Dr. Swain, I was suffering from pain and stiffness in my neck and lower back. I had never seen a Chiropractor before so I was also a little unsure. Dr. Swain and his staff put my mind at ease and now I have a better range of motion in my neck, no more stiffness,and best of all, I'm pain free in my lower back. I thank Dr. Swain every time I see him for helping me live a little better every day.
I had a series of car accidents and met Dr. Swain after a medical doctor told me I needed surgery before he did a scan! I called Dr. Swain on a Saturday and he made a special trip into the office to see me! After 2 weeks of care I was able to move my head normally, and NO SURGERY! I continue to see Dr. Swain on a weekly basis and I am a definite advocate for Chiropractic care...even in the hospital I work at as a nurse!
Dr. Swain has done wonders for my headaches. I have had them for many years and now they are almost completely gone!! I highly recommend his care if you suffer from headaches and neck pain.
Dr. Swain is the best! My neck was so bad I could not even turn to look over my shoulder. I can now easily turn and look after just 1 week! Thank you!
I love to play golf. In 2009 i had severe lower back pain and could not swing a golf club. I went to Dr. Ron and after two visits my pain was gone and i was playing golf. He is dedicated to his profession and also to every person who comes in to his business, a true professional.
Swain Family Chiropractic is the best! I was impressed by the prompt service I received at Swain Family Chiropractic. I have received very effective treatment that has made me feel like myself again. I continue my care here because health and wellness are a very important part of my life.
I left pain free! Swain Family Chiropractic is unlike any of the chiropractors I have previously been to. I felt immediate improvement throughout my whole spine. The staff is so attentive and caring which was another reason why I wanted to continue my care. I felt like no matter what was going on in my day, I had a smile on my face when I walked in the door.
Hello, my chiropractic care is something I am proud to tell you about. I have been receiving Chiropractic care since I was 39 years old. I am now 65 years and still rely on my chiropractor to keep me in good health. Not only have I been a patient, but I also worked for Dr. Herfert for many years. During that time I brought my 2 children for care. They both still continue to depend on and realize how much it helps you daily.
I have fallen several times and have some long term problems with my back which Dr. Herfert and now Dr. Swain keep adjusted so that I can function well and with no pain. I also know that it helps my overall health. Everything working-muscles, nerves and blood flow through proper adjusting keeps all my organs functioning and healthy. If I feel anxious or slightly feverish I know an adjustment will help and definitely keep me from going into a full fledged cold.
Chiropractic is a life style because you learn about your body and how important your spinal health is to your mind and body.
I know I will continue my care and I feel it is helping to keep me active and healthy.
I have been going to Swain Chiropractic for a three + years now, since just after they opened. Truth be told, I've known Dr. Swain since high school. Though that should have given me pause, instead, I gave it a shot, and I've been beyond pleased. The team at Swain Family Chiropractic has been the example of professional and courteous since the first time there. I have watched people from small children to the elderly be treated by Dr. Swain and his staff, and all leave with the same level of confidence and satisfaction when they leave.
This is simply one of the kindest and dedicated staff I've met at a medical center. From the ladies at the front to the assistants who keep you moving through stretches, cracks and massages, the Swain team is the best. They are quick to greet you, happy to make conversation and pleased to leave you alone if you're not willing to bite. That's nice. I've never felt unwelcome, nor have I ever felt that staff was tired, and I've been in at the end of long days. In the end, the most impressive part of this group is the human element. They understand that schedules change and people’s lives are complicated. From reminders to welcoming phone calls when you reschedule, this staff is honest, but willing to go out of their way to make you comfortable and do what they can to work around your schedule.
Swain Family Chiropractic is certainly not a big place, but its more than adequate. The team moves their patients to and from various stations like a finely tuned ballet. The doctors and staff work well together to maximize the space they have and it's always pristine and sterile, as would be expected but isn't always the case. They have two adjusting rooms, a traction room, the diagnosis and testing room, an X-ray facility, and a massage room for extended therapeutic massage.
From top to bottom Dr. Ron (Swain) and Dr. Eric, and the rest, do a great job. The Swain Family group are not in a rush to treat and always professional in their approach. As a returning patient, despite moving some ways away, I was pleasantly surprised that the team didn't go right to work on me. Instead, I went through x-rays and a variety of muscle and stress examinations so that they were able to treat the entirety of my issues versus the symptoms. I was also reminded that this is my spine they were adjusting, and in doing so must be careful not to put pressure on already inflamed or stressed parts of my back. The team was great, and had me back onto my feet.
The best description I can give to this place was while I was face down getting a stretch on the traction table when I overheard another patient talking in the lobby. The patients, both a woman and her young child, who had been treated by Dr. Swain, were greeted excitedly by the Dr. as they walked into the office. After a lengthy exchange between Dr. Swain and the child, it was obvious why they came there, and felt comfortable with the practice, the young boy felt like he was family. He was treated as an individual and the Dr. who has his own young family, understood that and made that young child feel special and cared for. At the heart of medicine is caring for the patient, and Dr. Ron and Dr. Eric take time to get to know their patients, interact with them, and make sure they all feel that way. The rest of the staff does as well.
This is a great place, and though I live literally across town, it's worth the 25 minute drive to and from where I work, to get there. I always feel better, in and out. It's a great place! Though I've known Dr. Swain for some time, I've been to a number of chiropractors over the years, and the reasons above are why I keep coming back to this one. Give it a try...you won't regret it.
I originally came into the office as I was not liking how i was feeling-I seemed to be stiff and having a loss of mobility in my hip. Starting at Swain Family Chiropractic is the best investment I have made to my body. Within the first week I noticed a change, a feeling of wellness, ability to sleep soundly and staring to see an improvement in mobility overall!
Dr. Swain, my chiropractor, has helped me improve my health so much! I had severe cervical pain on the right side of my neck and could not turn my neck to the right, which made it very difficult and dangerous while driving my car.
I had chronic pain in my lower back which is very minor now and getting better everyday because of Dr. Swains expertise.
I've been to two other chiropractors in the past and no one can hold a candle to Dr. Swain and his wonderful staff.
I would highly recommend Dr. Swain to everyone I know.
I started going to Swain Family Chiropractic in September 2012 for pain in my shoulder blade and neck. I am not one to jump on a bandwagon, so if I tell you that the pain that I had been experiencing for over 5 years was diminished dramatically, you should believe me. I still see them for an adjustment once a week. The staff is extremely friendly and the doctors are top notch. I would highly recommend Swain Family Chiropractic.
When a man puts his name on the business, it says a lot about both the business and the man. Dr Ron Swain, at Swain Family Chiropractic, has established a very good practice. He and Dr Eric provide the most thorough care of any of the 6 chiropractors I have been to over the past 20 years. The staff is very friendly, caring, and professional. The hours allow after work and weekend appointments. And they work hard to get the most value for your money, digging into insurance coverage and offering special programs. The practice is highly recommended.
I started coming to Swain Family Chiropractic a couple of years ago and it was when I was losing weight and was diagnosed with minor scoliosis. Thanks to the friendly staff at Swain Family Chiropractic. I have closer to full range of motion that everybody should have.
My Mom had to have neck surgery 2 years ago. I started getting shooting pain down my arm and worried I was in for the same fate. I waited for 3 months to do anything about it. After a month of coming to Swain Family Chiropractic the shooting pain disappeared.
I started coming to Swain Family Chiropractic over a year ago with neck pain so bad that I could barely turn my hear. After a coule of weeks I was amazed at how much better I felt. I was able to start doing things that I love again like running, bowling and golf in no time. Dr. Ron, Dr. Eric and staff have helped me greatly.
Hi my name is Ron Dix, I would like to say a few words about chiropractic care. When I called and made an appointment with Dr. Swains office, I could barely walk. I was in severe pain from shoveling heavy wet snow we received on February 27, 2013. I was very nervous about having someone work on my spine. After the initial consultation and a few adjustments, I started feeling a lot better. I have been with Dr. Swain for about 5 weeks now. I am totally pain free and I can actually bend and twist without any discomfort. I am now a true believer about chiropractic care for the health of the spine and total body. Dr. Swain and Dr. Eric and the whole staff are truly professionals in the way they handle their patients. I highly recommend Dr. Swain and his practice to anybody who needs health care of their spine. Thank you Dr. Swain and staff.
When we moved here, four years ago, I was faced once again with the task of having to find a new chiropractor in a place where I didn’t know anyone. (I’m a former Army wife so we have had to move around a lot over the years. I have been a HUGE FAN OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE for many years now, so finding a chiropractor has always been a top priority for me whenever we move anywhere.) Luckily, Dr. Swain had put an advertisement in the local newspaper. So, I decided to give him a try. Looking back on it now, I am so grateful to Dr. Swain for running that ad in the paper! I have been EXTREMELY PLEASED with Dr. Swain’s office. First of all, they are just a really FRIENDLY GROUP of people! I felt immediately welcomed not just to their office but to the area! They gave me tips on where things were in the area (restaurants, music lessons for my son, directions on how to get to places like, “Where’s Rochester Road?”, “Is there a mall anywhere?”, etc…). Okay, I realize that none of this has anything to do with chiropractic care, but my point is that I needed a good chiropractor but, just as importantly, I also needed to meet some nice people! At Swain Family Chiropractor Center, both of my needs were met!
In addition to a FANTASTIC STAFF, the things I love the most about Swain Family Chiropractic Center are: I am getting the same OUTSTANDING, QUALITY CARE that I was getting from my previous chiropractor back in Maryland (Dr. Ron and Dr.Eric are both very knowledgeable, caring chiropractors), the OFFICE HOURS ARE TERRIFIC (better than what I had back in Maryland—they have a great selection of days and times to choose from), and THEY ARE ACCOMODATING—there have been times when I have needed to change an appointment or to come in for an appointment spur of the moment (like if I’d done something crazy at home for example, lifted something too heavy and then felt like I really needed an adjustment that very day, times when I have felt like—“I just can’t wait”) and I have always been quite amazed and very grateful to them for being so accommodating. They really try to help people and to work with each person’s individual needs.
My twenty year old son also gets adjusted by Dr. Ron and Dr. Eric. He has never had any real back problems (no actual severe pain issues) but when we lived in Maryland my chiropractor educated me about the importance of helping kids to maintain proper spinal health. My son really likes getting chiropractic adjustments! He and I both believe that we are healthier because of chiropractic care. We both feel totally energized after getting an adjustment! We love the natural approach rather than always turning to medications right away. WE LOVE CHIROPRACTIC CARE! WE LOVE SWAIN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC CENTER!
A HUGE THANKS to everyone at Swain Family Chiropractic Center for being our first friends and for helping us to “adjust” (not just our spines but to adjust to the area as well)!
My name is Robert W. I have been a construction electrician for over 15 years. I have been in one major car accident. I have always enjoyed being an amateur athlete (football, weightlifter). My symptoms before attending Swain Chiropractic included: general back pain, slower walking, general pain when getting out of a chair, trouble sleeping and reduction in energy/stamina. I contributed my symptoms to just getting older. After three weeks of following the doctors plan I can happily say that I have found all my symptoms to greatly be reduced and my sleeping is almost perfect. My sleeping did require one of those special pillows and Swain Chiropractic provided that to me in their office when I started my recovery plan. I have been happy with their product and would recommend them to any of my friends or family.
My wife, Sharon, and I have been patients of Dr. Swain for two (2) years. Dr. Ron is very knowledgeable. He also encourages and educates everyone on taking care of their body, including exercise and proper eating. His staff is very professional and a pleasure to be with during the visit. Highly recommended if you have any kind of pain that can be corrected by a good chiropractor.
Dr. Swain has eliminated my headaches after years of suffering from daily headaches. I highly recommend Dr. Swain for anyone who suffers from headaches or neck pain.
Great doctor, wonderful, kind staff. They all listen to you and they really care and want you to get better and free of pain. Had real bad pain, almost unable to go to work, after 6 visits I am pain free, we still have work to do, and I am on board. Dr. gives you a very thorough exam and test , explains it in great detail before he begins your treatment, great massage girl, Maggie is a miracle worker.
My experience with Swain family chiropractic has been amazing. Dr. Ron not only treats the symptoms, he also treats the overall health of his patients. He is through with his exam and going over what he discovers. I have always felt comfortable and relaxed when I'm in his care. I am so thankful for his care.
-Alicia U, Goose Creek
I want to thank Dr Swan and his staff for helping my husband. He still has a long road, but he is able to walk straight again!
I DEFINITELY recommend them!
I've been going to Swain Chiropractic for back and foot pain for almost a year now, and I love it. Dr. Ron is awesome, and takes the time to explain things to you. The entire staff is nice, and they make you feel like family. I highly recommend them!
