When you have a deep-seated health challenge such as a chronic pain condition, immune system dysfunction, or systemic disease, you may need to make changes on multiple levels. In addition to chiropractic care, you may need a functional medicine plan that includes nutritional counseling and dietary changes. Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center can provide all of these strategies in a customized package to help you get well and stay healthy for life.
Nutrition's Place in Functional Medicine
Functional medicine takes diet and nutrition into account as part of a larger picture. Your body can maintain its countless complex functions only when it has adequate amounts of the right nutrients. These nutrients include both macronutrients (proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fats) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and amino acids).
Unfortunately, getting that balance just right can prove difficult. Many popular processed foods offer too little in the way of actual nutrition and too much fat, sugar, and salt. These imbalances can contribute to chronic inflammation, obesity, bone, and joint problems, poor disease resistance, and other health issues.
We look at all the factors that influence your current state of health, from emotional stress and lifestyle choices to musculoskeletal or nervous system problems. Upon evaluation, we may find that you need nutritional counseling among other functional medicine services to help you correct your nutrient balance and maintain a healthy weight.
Customized Nutritional Program
Dr. Tammy Atkinson will prepare a customized wellness plan to suit your specific needs. Nutritional counseling can help you select anti-inflammatory foods that promote nerve health, muscle strength, and immune system function. We will pinpoint specific deficiencies in your diet and make recommendations for changing your eating or supplementation habits.

Suffering with Aches and Pains?
What Our Patients Are Saying
Read what our patients share their experiences and find out why we are the top-rated chiropractic clinic in the Cary area.
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!!
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.
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!
