Get Your Lifestyle Back

Break the pain cycle for good.

Dr. Jolson is by far the best specialist I have ever been to for my back. I hesitate to say chiropractor because he is different than every one that I have been to before.

-MM (Chef)

Dr. Jolson is one of a kind with a true gift. I struggled off and on for over a year with sciatic pain. After extreme frustration, I was referred to Dr. Jolson by a very well thought of orthopedic surgeon. On the first visit, Dr. Jolson nailed my issues and immediately put me on the path to success. After only a few weeks, through his unique combination of care, I am happy to say I am pain-free and having a blast exercising again. I now have the knowledge to keep the sciatic pain in check on my own!

— LI (Real Estate)

I ride for the local Hincapie professional cycling team and Dr. Jolson has helped my teammates and me not only with back pain but identifying and strengthening other areas of the body that are essential for competing at a high level of sport. Upstate Spine is the most friendly and professional environment for physical therapy and chiropractor in Greenville!

Chiropractic Care

Many traditional chiropractic clinics focus on long-term treatments that require extensive in-office appointments, costing patients both time and money. Our chiropractor quickly identifies what’s causing your discomfort, treats it, and teaches you how to minimize any reoccurrence through specific exercises and principles.

Each patient is unique, requiring equally distinctive treatment programs. The key to the evidence-based model of chiropractic care is to diagnose not only the symptoms you have but also why you have them. At Upstate Spine & Sport we take the time necessary to uncover and understand your condition and then do what it takes to correct it.


From a modern Western medical perspective, the tiny acupuncture needles inserted into the skin promote blood circulation to targeted areas. This, in turn, activates your body’s immune and nervous systems, leading to reduced inflammation and releasing endorphins to alleviate pain.

Acupuncture helps to correct imbalances in the body caused by external factors such as stress, toxins, and injury – once restored to proper balance, the body has a better chance to heal itself.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can help reduce aches and pains, improve your athletic performance, or help you unwind and relax. No matter what your goal, our massage therapist will help you achieve it.

Our massage therapist works closely with our Greenville chiropractor, acupuncturist, and stretch therapist. We communicate effectively to get you back to what you love revived, refreshed, and ready to go.

Active Release Technique

A patented soft tissue system and movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART can help with overused muscles quickly and permanently.


Upstate Spine & Sport offers an innovative approach called StemWave™ Therapy. This therapy uses high-frequency shock waves to stimulate the body’s healing process, specifically targeting areas with inflammation or soft tissue injuries. Not only does it provide relief from chronic pain, but it also enhances mobility without the need for surgery.

Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy

Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (the “McKenzie Method”) is an assessment that relieves pain through the deep understanding of a condition, allowing the patient to treat their own pain with specific movements, therefore making the patient less reliant on his or her doctor.

McKenzie is considered the most well researched conservative musculoskeletal approach on the planet. Dr. Jolson is the only chiropractor eligible for credentialing in South Carolina.

Functional Rehab and Performance

This type of rehab utilizes movements that are individualized and appropriate for each patient’s daily life and goals. The purpose is to promote proper activation and coordination of the neuromuscular system, allowing patients to regain strength and stability to overcome pain.

Our Greenville chiropractors primarily utilize the principles of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), a system based on developmental kinesiology.

Functional Range Conditioning

Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) is a system which applies scientific principles to the acquisition and maintenance of functional mobility, joint resilience, joint health and longevity.

Musculoskeletal health depends on movement, and the FRC system provides a continuum to optimize the human body from pain all the way to peak performance.

Titleist Golf Assessment

Titleist Performance based golf specific injury assessment is designed to alleviate pain and increase player performance through a deep understanding of how the body functions during the golf swing.

Dr. Jolson is the only chiropractor in South Carolina with advanced TPI Medical level 2 golf specific training. Click here for more information.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a technique used to treat muscular pain and movement dysfunction. The technique uses a “dry” needle — a very thin filament without medication or injection — inserted through the skin and into the targeted muscles. Typically, the needle is inserted into an area of soft tissue dysfunction called a “trigger point.”

Why? — This is one tool in our tool belt that we use for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues such as shoulder, neck, heel, hip, and back pain. Dry needling can also help with acute injuries (ankles, elbows, backs), scar tissue repair, chronic pain, and more!
