Dr. Mary Frances Duncan is a native of Greer, South Carolina and attended Furman University in Greenville, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. After receiving her degree, she quickly realized that she wanted to do something more with her career and went in a different direction entirely. Having gone to a chiropractor regularly growing up, she decided she wanted to spend her life helping other people lead healthier lives using a natural approach, just as her chiropractor had done for her. After her undergraduate studies, she attended the Port Orange, Florida campus of Palmer College of Chiropractic, where she obtained her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After four years at Palmer, she has returned to the Upstate to keep her friends and neighbors on the path to good health.
She founded Simply Southern Chiropractic Center in 2015 to provide people in the greater Greenville area with the best available chiropractic and rehabilitative care. Dr. Duncan is well-versed in a variety of techniques, and is eager to help her patients achieve their best health yet! She has experience treating all kinds of individuals from all sorts of different backgrounds. She’s treated athletes, people injured in car accidents, children, pregnant women, senior citizens (or as we like to say, the young at heart), and even newborns. No matter what stage of life you’re in, and no matter whether you’re experiencing any pain at all, everyone can benefit from quality chiropractic care – which is exactly what you’ll receive at Simply Southern Chiropractic Center.
Dr. Duncan is trained to provide multiple types of treatments to patients at Simply Southern Chiropractic Center. These treatments include hands-on adjustments of the spinal column, adjustments using an Activator, flexion distraction, Webster technique, sacro-occipital technique (SOT), instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), kinesiology taping, and cold laser therapy. Dr. Duncan has certificates from RockTape, K-Laser, the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, Activator Methods, Motion Palpation Institute, and Cox Flexion Distraction, giving her many tools in her toolbox when deciding on how to best treat her patients.
Dr. Duncan loves good food wherever she can find it, specifically at local farm-to-table restaurants. She loves going to church on Sundays, traveling, coffee shops, all things Furman, monograms, and Lilly Pulitzer. She also takes a lot of pride in being a South Carolinian, and most importantly she takes pride in being an American. Her favorite quote is by minister and theologian John Wesley:
“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as you ever can.”
Dr. Lauren Bremerman was born in Salina, Kansas. However, due to her father’s career, she has lived in Kansas City, St. Louis, New Jersey, and southwest Florida. Dr. Bremerman attended Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in biology. Following her graduation from Truman State, she went on to earn her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan University College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri. While attending Logan University, Dr. Bremerman was accepted into the University’s integrated clinical rotations, where she provided chiropractic care to veterans, the physically disabled, the homeless, and the underinsured. During these clinical rotations, Dr. Bremerman worked closely with other healthcare providers to ensure each patient received quality chiropractic care.
Dr. Bremerman utilizes a wide variety of techniques including hands-on adjustments of the spinal column, adjustments using an Activator, flexion distraction, Logan Basic, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), kinesiology taping, and cold laser therapy. She is also certified in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Spinal Active Release Technique (ART), and cold laser therapy. This variety of techniques and certifications allows Dr. Bremerman to create a treatment plan that is unique to each individual, taking a holistic view of each patient rather than focusing solely on immediate symptoms. Dr. Bremerman strives daily to create an environment that inspires her patients and their families to pursue healthier lifestyles.
Dr. Bremerman is engaged to her high school sweetheart, Dustin. She loves spending time with her family, which is rare since her sister lives in Naples, Florida and her parents reside in New York City. She also loves trying new restaurants, paddle boarding, walking outside, and learning.
