Frequently Asked Questions

1. When Should I Visit a Chiropractor?

You should visit a chiropractor when you have a back injury, a neck injury, or have issues with your joints.

You can benefit from getting your spine checked, whether you have pain or not. Do you see a dentist every six months? Why? To check for cavities, you can't feel! Why wait until your spine hurts? Get checked today. Call us at (919) 439-2539 to schedule an appointment for a consultation.

Pain is the reason people initially go to the chiropractor. Chiropractic adjustments can help you function and feel better. Those who have experienced these adjustments report having less pain, greater freedom of movement, better sleeping patterns, and an improved sense of well-being. Daily stress like work, commuting, emotional stress, and having no time for your needs can all be hard on the body. Many people go to the chiropractor to help maintain an optimal state of health. How often they go generally depends on lifestyle factors, like exercise, stress reduction, and nutrition.

At Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center, we correct and stabilize your spinal condition and help you feel better faster. Once you finish your initial treatments, it is up to you to continue care or not.

Most insurance companies acknowledge that chiropractic care is an effective treatment for musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. Insurance coverage can significantly vary, and we recommend contacting your insurance company to discuss your benefits for chiropractic care. Please contact us about the insurances we accept; our staff will do their best to assist you with your insurance coverage.

Lacey W.'s 5-star Google review for Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

I have been seeing Dr.Tammy regularly since 2016. I have Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and require consistent care due to multiple joint subluxations which contribute to widespread chronic pain.

I look forward to my weekly appointment and feel so much better after getting fixed up (adjusted)!

All Chiropractors are not equal when considering treatment for EDS. The key is finding someone who is gentle but effective, understands the challenges of the Hypermobile body, listens, feels, and sees how the body is moving and adjusts the treatment accordingly. Dr.Tammy checks all those boxes! She is a skilled practicioner who has taken such excellent care of me I also have entrusted her with my daughter's care as well. We both see her regularly and feel she is a vital part of our care team. EDS has no cure and managing symptoms becomes the treatment plan. For us, Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy are the bread and butter to managing our subluxations, reducing pain, and improving daily functionality. We are so fortunate to have found Dr.Tammy Atkinson at the Chiropractic Wellness Center in Cary!!

Ivan S.'s 5-star Yelp review for neck and upper back issues.

Dr. Tammy's refined and careful touch has helped me tremendously with my neck and upper back issues. She's been over on Kildaire Farm Rd. for over 10 years. I've appreciated the various therapies she offers in addition to the standard adjustments.

Joani C.'s 5-star Facebook review for best Chiropractic

Dr. Tammy is the best. Very easy to schedule appointments and although 1 session does not immediately fix your issue - I always feel 150% better after the first appointment than before I walked in. She is kind, gentle and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center to anyone looking for the best Chiropractor!

Lily C,'s 5-star Google review for shoulder pain

I'm so glad I found Dr. Tammy Atkinson! After dealing with constant headaches, neck and shoulder pain for months now, I finally found some relief. After only one session my awful headache is gone. I had a treatment and spine adjustment done in the morning and it's evening time now and still no headache 🙂 I didn't think it could work so fast but she has the magic touch. I'm looking forward to more treatments for my neck and shoulder's chronic pain.. I think I might have convinced my husband to get an adjustment also since he sees the difference it made for me. Feeling hopeful that I'll be able to once again live pain free. Thank you Dr. Atkinson!

Karoline N.'s 5-star Google review for best chiro in cary

Nowadays, many medical professionals make you feel like you are just a widget on an assembly line. “Get ‘em in and get ‘em out.” You will not find that is the case here. A seasoned and astute medical professional, Dr. Tammy takes the time to really find out her clients concerns and the root of the problem, and is very knowledgeable about treating the problem and achieving relief. She offered many helpful, tried and true suggestions to mitigate the flare-ups of my daughter’s juvenile arthritis along with expert adjustment. She treats the whole person and not just what little she can do to help get you “in and out.” Highly recommend!
