Business Profile: Coastal Integrative Health

 Brian S. Lank, Doctor of Chiropractic, opened Coastal Integrative Health clinic in Leland on June 17, 2019, and offers identical services as his Coastal Integrative Health clinic in Shallotte.

Coastal Integrative Health’s specialties are chiropractic care, physical therapy, golf performance and massage, with an emphasis on relieving back pain. Dr. Lank states that 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives, and it is one of the top three reasons people visit a doctor. Although back pain might be one of the most common conditions treated here, they also rehab post-operative conditions such as knee replacements, rotator cuff tears and more.

Dr. Lank was drawn to the chiropractic profession after an injury to his neck as a high school freshman. He went to a chiropractor, who relieved his severe pain within a few treatments. “From that day forward, I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor,” he says.

Joining Dr. Lank on staff are fellow chiropractors Dr. James Morosky and Dr. Paul Hrvol III; physical therapists Dr. Patrick McCauley, Devin Sellers and Lydia Smith; and massage therapist Jennifer Jones. She uses myofascial release and various other methods of massage, which helps to relieve a host of ailments. The key focus for the staff is integrative health.

“Integrative health is combining different disciplines,” Dr. Lank says.

“When patients come to our clinics, we’re going to look at their condition from a couple of ways, from a physical therapy standpoint and from a chiropractic standpoint. We’ll draw up a treatment plan to figure out what’s the best way we can improve their health to get them back to doing the things they love to do.”

Coastal Integrative Health (CIH) also employs nutritional counseling. Dr. James Morosky specializes in personalized nutritional supplementation to combat specific health problems and help patients live a healthier lifestyle. “Everything we do is without the use of drugs or surgery,” Dr. Lank says. “Our whole philosophy is to exhaust the conservative approaches first. If it doesn’t get you to where you need to be in an effective and timely manner, we refer our patients to the appropriate medical team, whether that’s the orthopedist, primary care physician or neurosurgeon. It’s all about what’s best for the patient.”

“I want people to know we are patient focused,” he adds. “This isn’t a cookie cutter practice. We try to get to the core of what the problem actually is. When you have different professionals from different disciplines working together as a team, you get better outcomes.”

Helping golfers improve their game is another service available at CIH. “We see how their swing affects their body and how their body affects their golf swing, then we develop corrective exercise programs to help them improve their performance,” Dr. Lank says. He, Dr. McCauley and Dr. Hrvol are certified through Titlist as medical professionals, and Dr. Lank is Nike-certified as a golf functional performance expert.

The Wellness Center tab on the CIH website includes more than 100 videos that show the proper way to do exercises. It also explains ergonomics, chiropractic, posture and a dozen more topics. Dr. Lank doesn’t hesitate to say why he has developed this comprehensive website: “Patient education. Education is the key to success.”

He stresses again that the CIH staff works as a team. “It’s our philosophy to work together as a team to improve patients’ outcome,” he says. “It’s all about the patient.”
