About Me

Dr. Brian S. Lank was born and raised in the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern, PA. He and his family moved to Sunset Beach, North Carolina in the summer of 2002. After completing his undergraduate studies at Coastal Carolina University he enrolled at Logan University in St. Louis, MO. While pursuing his doctorate, he and another fellow graduate classmate designed strength and conditioning programs as well as golf-specific rehabilitation and injury prevention programs for local collegiate teams. He received the Titleist Medical Professional certification from the Titleist Performance Institute in Oceanside, CA for golf-specific exercise programs and rehabilitation in the fall of 2006. He also received certification in Active Release Technique, the gold standard for soft tissue injuries dealing with muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerve entrapments.

During his 9th and 10th trimesters at Logan, Dr. Lank was involved in research studies with the St. Louis Rams and St. Louis Blues team chiropractor, Dr. Mike Murphy. Dr. Lank submitted his senior research study along with several colleagues on the effects of chiropractic manipulation and active release technique for increasing golfers X-Factor (upper body rotational ability on the lower body) which was slated for publication in a major golf magazine. Upon completion of his doctorate degree, Dr. Lank took an associate position in Shallotte, NC. He later purchased the practice in January of 2010 and began the transformation to an integrative health care clinic, something he has always dreamt of.

Along the way he earned the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification, a prestigious training credential focused on implementing strength and conditioning programs for athletes and sports teams. His clinic Coastal Integrative Health offers a multidimensional approach toward patient healthcare. The practice provides chiropractic medicine, physical therapy, massage therapy, nutritional counseling, strength and conditioning programs as well as Golf performance programs through Nike and Titleist.

Dr. Lank is a frequent speaker on golf fitness, rehabilitation, and injury prevention in North and South Carolina. He is married to his wife Cristina who is a registered nurse practicing in Myrtle Beach, SC. They have two sons, Kaden and Colson, and a daughter named Raegan.


My Philosophy

My philosophy is rooted in the belief that each and every person is uniquely different from the next. What helps one person heal and recover may not help another. My goals and desires on well being may be different from that of yours. That’s why I believe in an integrative approach towards health and wellness. Sometimes it takes a team effort to think outside your comfort zone and come up with an ideal treatment plan that is both effective and time-efficient. Our motto is simple, One Patient, Multiple Solutions.
