I have been a patient at Carolina Chiropractic for 3 years. My husband and son have also been treated by the doctors at Carolina Chiropractic. Having this care has kept me pain free and able to work as an RN full-time at 70 years old. I had back surgery 2 times in the 1970's and with regular chiropractic care ever since, I am able to avoid further surgery, be active and live a pain free life.
I am an 80 year old grandmother who is still interested and involved in the world of activity. Chronic back pain began to limit me because I couldn't stand up straight and almost any movement reminded me that I was old and 'on the shelf.' Carolina Chiropractic straightened me up and took me off of the shelf. These doctors are caring, their office is organized and punctual with appointments, and best of all…their treatment is effective!
I am a middle-aged man with a sedentary occupation and have been going to Carolina Chiropractic for several years. I nave used physical therapy, drugs, and other doctors cannot help me. Carolina Chiropractic has always been able to help me usually in just 1 or 2 visits.
Coming to Carolina Chiropractic was the best decision I made after my accident. I saw other doctors, but the professionalism and expertise could not compare to Carolina Chiropractic. My problem was diagnosed, I was treated, and was on the road to recovery. They did a great job at breaking down the treatments and explaining x-rays so that a non-medical person could understand what was going on with me. Thanks and I will returning for my "tune-ups".
I had been having back and neck problems for many months. My primary care physician gave me muscle relaxers and pain medication and a referral to Carolina Chiropractic. I could not turn my head without severe neck pain. After a few weeks of treatment, I finally received relief. He listened to me and explained things to me, which no one else did. I also saw a back specialist, but it was Carolina Chiropractic that got me through that horrible pain. I do not take any pills for back pain anymore. I strongly recommend chiropractic care with Carolina Chiropractic. I can call without prior notice and they are so great to get me in. The staff is truly professional and kind. You feel like family at Carolina Chiropractic.
I am a 38 year old paralegal. I went to Carolina Chiropractic following an auto accident. Shortly after the accident, I began experiencing pain in my lower back and right foot. I also had terrible sinus infections that affected my sleep. Not a fan of meds, I immediately began researching an alternative. I had never tried chiropractic medicine and was a bit intimidated. Tried it and loved it. The doctors and staff are kind, gentle and understanding. Very flexible appointment scheduling. Never hesitated to squeeze me in on short notice.

I am 27 years old and was involved in a car accident, which resulted in very bad pains in my lower back, headaches and neck pain. I became very worried because I thought my dream to become an architect was over, but when I got to Carolina Chiropractic, with their good team and experience they changed this to a new direction, which made me very happy. I went back and started doing the things I used to do before the accident and now I can still continue my dream to become an architect all because of Carolina Chiropractic and their team. Thanks!
I went to Carolina Chiropractic because of knee pain and a shooting pain down my let. After just two adjustments the shooting pain was gone, the knee pain was about 60% better and other nagging pains are being relieved as well. For three years I have not been able to ride or drive for more than 15 minutes without squirming. This is wonderful to have such relief.
I learned about Carolina Chiropractic after I had my accident. It was so easy to contact the office and the staff was great. I started getting adjustments and at first I was skeptical but after a few visits I realized this treatment method was working. I stuck with it and now my back and neck are back to normal.
When I started going to Carolina Chiropractic, I had been involved in a car accident where I was rear-ended. I had neck and back pain and tingling in my legs. I went to Carolina Chiropractic right after the accident. After treatment I feel that I can perform a lot better since the accident. I would recommend them to anyone. They have a great staff. Thanks a lot for all your help and advice!
My name is Farah and I am 17 years old. I got into a terrible accident with 3 other family members and the effects of the accident were pretty bad. I had extremely bad headaches, and mid-back pain, and shoulder pain. I started to go to Carolina Chiropractic. At first my shoulder pain was so bad I couldn't move at all. The first 3 weeks all the headaches were gone and my shoulder and back started to feel really good. I'm very glad I came and it was a great experience. Thank you!
I had massive neck pain, back and shoulder pain. Chiropractic has really turned my nightmare pain to being pain which is totally less than 3/10 if not completely 0. I could not turn my neck, move my shoulder or bend. Severe headache was a daily experience. I am gad I discovered your good care. Keep it up as you save a lot of patients from long painful lives. God bless you.

I am a 54 year old warehouse worker who was involved in a car crash. My initial concerns were neck, upper and mid-back pain which I reluctantly fought with pain killers (skelaxin & hydrocodone). I was not sleeping well and equally important was the impact on my religious and work life. As a Muslim, I felt excruciating pain when performing my daily prayers. Now I feel like trying out for the Olympics gymnastics team. Finally, my sincere thanks to the very respectful & professional lady assistants.
I am a 62 year old retired woman
Activities: dog walks, exercise, yard work
Pain: very bad lower back from leg to ankle, hamstring, couldn't bend leg, ate Advil day and night, helped sometimes, ice helped sometimes, standing better than sitting.

"My chiropractors gave me back my life. I was involved in several serious accidents involving my hips, back and neck. I was in constant pain. I couldn't turn my head or walk up the stairs. I gained weight because I couldn't exercise. I became a heart attack waiting to happen. I saw so many specialists who insisted on surgeries. Finally, I decided to see a chiropractor. Honestly, I had always been skeptical. I didn't know what to expect, but they got me more comfortable. Soon, I could turn my head. I could walk up the stairs. I'm exercising. I'm not in constant pain. I'm a person again. My chiropractors are angels. It's an unfortunate situation that the insurance companies don't recognize that chiropractors are saving them money." -- Pharmaceutical Executive
Dear Neighbors & Friends:
Recently, I was in a rear-end collision. Within days, my mailbox overflowed with ads from law offices and doctors that all made it to the trash, because I did not think that I was injured. One ad for Carolina Chiropractic www.GetWellQuick.com caught my attention and fortunately, I saved it. When pain in my back and right foot unexpectedly surfaced about 2 weeks after the accident, I called them. Never been treated by a chiropractic physician and honestly, I was petrified and skeptical.
I have been treated by Carolina Chiropractic for several weeks now, and I am totally amazed. They are so caring, kind and gentle. Not only has the pain in my back subsided and foot pain gone, but overall, I feel better, happier... restful sleep, clear sinuses, improved gait. I never realized how spinal injuries affect your nervous system which impacts your health in general. Crazy!
Love that we can share info with each other through our group and hope this helps someone that may be ignoring back pain or unexplained ailments, as I almost did. Good referrals have been so useful to me living here only a short time, so I wanted to pass this along. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I am a young female that enjoys an active lifestyle. Unfortunately due to my job, which requires me to sit in front of a computer all day, I
have started to suffer from back & neck pain. Occasionally I need some muscular/spinal relief. Carolina Chiropractic of Raleigh had the right therapy in place for people with my problem and it has helped me alleviate the back & neck pain related
to my work environment. This therapy not only has allowed me to continue my active life style it has helped me recover my sleep. It has been a rewarding experience for me to be a
patient in the care of Carolina Chiropractic of Raleigh
It was June of 1997, and I was dreaming of sand, surf, coral reefs, tropical fish, and stingrays. In less than twoweeks I would
be in Grand Cayman, making good use of my brand new Open Water Scuba Diver certification. But first I had to pass my checkout dives to obtain my certification. It was
Monday, and I had done something mysterious to my pinch a nerve in my neck so badly that I couldn't hold my head up straight! It kept getting worse over the course of the day until I
was really in pain. I had to do something-my checkout dives were on Saturday and I was leaving for the Caymans on Sunday…and it was too late to cancel the trip. I started looking
in the phone book for the closest chiropractor to work office. I had never been to one before and really didn't know what to expect, but what did I have to lose? The first place I
called couldn't take me until the following morning, so I kept calling. The second place I called told me to come right away, and that is how I met the people at Carolina Chiropractic. With some aggressive treatment that week, my
neck straightened out, I passed my dives with flying colors, and experienced a diving vacation that I have not yet been able to surpass! After my initial "emergency," I have
learned how Chiropractic can help in many areas of health and am faithful to my maintenance regimen. I can honestly say that I actually look forward to my
Chiropractic Story Of Daniel Knudsen
As early as age 12,I can remember feeling that something just wasn't right with my neck. My mother remembers me "krinking" my neck, but at the time never thought anything of it. As we both know now, I had a subluxation, even then. So I went on with my life, always in discomfort, never sure why.
Around age 25,now with a family, I attended a meeting of the Daytona Beach Jaycee's. The guest speaker was a local Doctor of Chiropractic. He spoke about having pain in the neck, shoulders and back and what he could do to help. It seemed he was speaking directly to me. Addressing my symptoms. I went to see him the next week. I began with treatments three times a week for nearly two months, and did feel some benefit. Unfortunately, the cost was too much at the time and I had to stop. You have misplaced priorities when you have children.
I am now 45, and have received benefit as a patient of Carolina Chiropractic for nearly two years. Not only do we have a handle on my cervical subluxation, I am doing well, recovering from a very nasty back injury. I missed a step carrying a heavy load and really tweaked it. Thanks to Carolina Chiropractic, I have more neck mobility than I've had for years and can continue working and playing my music. Both of which entail their share of lifting and hauling. With proper lifting techniques and continued support and adjustments, I know the rest of my life won't be spent in pain and discomfort. Now that's a sobering thought.

I am a 70 year old female. When I came to Carolina Chiropractic I had extreme stiffness in my back. I had osteoarthritis in my right hip joint and was in much pain when I walked. There were times when I had to sit down rather than walk. I had a long time strained muscle in my right leg extending to my right hip. The doctor x-rayed these areas. He examined me physically and found one hip or leg shorter than the other. He gave me a series of vitamins to suit my specific needs. He then gave me a series of manipulations. Starting from day one I began to feel better. I am now able to resume all the activities I have always enjoyed. I thank God for the circumstances that let me find Carolina Chiropractic. They are very sensitive to your needs and goes beyond the call of duty to help you with your situation. I will always be grateful to them for having my life back.
I was diagnosed with a pinched nerve in Novemeber of 1997. My primary doctor treated my with the standard medications. Yet the pain did not go away. On December 29,
1997 I decided to go to the doctors office unannounced to be seen. As I traveled Falls of Neuse Road to work the stop light at Falls Village turned red. When I stopped I was directly
in front of the drive to Carolina Chiropractic. I had never seen a chiropractor, in fact
I had always been a little skeptical of them. Yet the plan was so intense I thought maybe I would just go in and ask if there was anything he could do for me. The doctor was so wonderful, he had me retrieve my x-rays and began working on my neck and shoulder. I had some relief the first treatment with full recovery in just a few weeks. I continue to have monthly maintenance adjustments this
has resulted in an added bonus, the sick headaches that I suffered with for years have vanished. I was so impressed with what Carolina Chiropractic did for me I encouraged my husband to become a patient,
but that's his story. My father and mother have also become patient's but that's still another story. I thank the Lord for having my car stop at the red light at Falls Village that
morning 6 years ago.
I have been going to a chiropractor since 1983 when my arm and leg started to go numb. Doctors had prescribed muscle relaxers but the problem persisted. I then decided to find a chiropractor and just after 6 visits the numbness went away. Needless to say, I became a believer in the chiropractic profession. One year ago I moved to North Carolina. I was fortunate to find Carolina Chiropractic, a chiropractor who not only adjusts but does extensive research in the chemical effects of prescribed as well as over the counter medications. Approximately one month ago I was having a sinus problem. The doctor suggested I buy glyco-thymoline, which is used primarily as a mouthwash. He told me to moisten a washcloth with both water and pour the glyco-thymoline into it and literally cover your face and breathe in, keeping the wash cloth moist and as hot as you can stand it. With the first application my sinuses cleared and I was able to breathe and sleep soundly again. A simple application with great results.
I was referred to Carolina Chiropractic by my father. I am one of those "weekend warriors" that he refers to in his letters. I spend a great deal of time working at the computer into the wee hours of the morning and am a children's entertainer by day. I had been in a traffic accident and needed care when I first came to Carolina Chiropractic but after x-rays, the doctor showed me what I already knew - that I had a more serious problem. I had inherited my family trait of arthritis in my neck and middle back and for someone in their early 30's it was a sobering experience. What I didn't know was how to gauge my pain as I had been in pain for so many years. The doctors began to work with me and I learned to tell what a good day was and a bad day. I realized that I really DID have a pain threshold and that suffering was not necessary. However, I thought that once I felt better, I wouldn't have to go back but my body began to convince me otherwise. Like any exercise program or diet, once you make the change to better yourself, you cannot go back to your old habits and expect to keep up the improvement. I have returned to Carolina Chiropractic to get the spring back in my muscles. No, I am not 18 anymore but I want to maintain my good health for as long as I can. He shares the same goal.
I used to be one of those people who didn't believe in chiropractic care, but I was having a problem for which I received no relief from regular medical treatment. I had visited my regular physician a number of times because of pain in my shoulder extending all the way down my right arm. I work as an executive assistant, and it was difficult to accomplish my daily duties. After several different treatments were suggested and tried with no relief from the pain, I was told there was no more that could be done for me and that I should try an orthopedist or a chiropractor. That's when I decided to try a chiropractor. I actually looked in the yellow pages to locate one near my home. I realize now that that was a risky way to search for chiropractic care, but I lucked out when I began receiving treatment from Carolina Chiropractic. An extensive evaluation pinpointed my problem - some areas of cervical degeneration. There was no quick fix; however, after following a carefully planned course of treatment, improvement finally came and the pain was gone!I I now continue in a maintenance program for that condition. Recently, I experienced a shoulder joint problem causing me extreme pain and seriously limiting the mobility in my right arm. The condition came on rather suddenly, and I was at a loss to try to figure out what to do about it, and then I thought, maybe Carolina Chiropractic can help!I don't know why I didn't immediately think about that, but I was so use to thinking about chiropractic treatment in terms of my cervical spine problem. With one visit and one treatment, the pain was gone the next morning. Seeking treatment early prevented the problem from requiring months of treatment. Suffice it to say that I have gone from being a chiropractic care non-believer to a disciple and recommend Carolina Chiropractic without hesitation!
