About Us

What we are about

The doctors at Midlands Health Center are focused on getting you the best results as quickly as possible to get you back to living a full life. Chiropractors Dean McCaughan, DC (Palmer College of Chiropractic) and William Jones, DC (Life University) partner with Doctor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Kiran Sandrapaty, MD ( St. George’s University School of Medicine ) to provide a comprehensive approach to your health concerns. Our goal goes beyond getting you out of pain -- we want you to get back to living a full and active life.

At Midlands Health Center, here in Columbia SC, we see patients with a wide variety of issues. Patients often get relief from their low back pain, headaches and migraines, neck pain, upper and mid-back pain, shoulder pain, wrist and carpal tunnel issues, ankle and knee complaints, muscle tension and spasms, and fibromyalgia. We see pregnant patients, people who have had personal injuries, and patients of all age ranges from infants to seniors.

We are conveniently located at 3106 Devine Street near downtown Columbia and the USC campus. Our building offers covered parking. We strive to get new patients seen as quickly and efficiently as possible so you can start getting relief. We have on-site x-rays, and offer a variety of therapies including licensed massage therapy.
