Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "It is always a pleasure and rewarding experience to visit Chapel Hill Chiropractic Centre. As a yoga instructor, a well-aligned body is of prime importance to me. I suffer from scoliosis and, sometimes, a little too much exuberance in my practice which gets me into trouble. I visit Chapel Hill Chiropractic regularly to tweak things and keep me running smoothly. My training has taught me how to listen deeply to my body, but I can always depend on Chapel Hill Chiropractic Centre to find things I cannot. Straight chiropractic is not enough for me; it doesn’t treat the whole person. The applied kinesiology and nutritional information round out the treatments nicely and help me get to the root of my issues. I’m with Chapel Hill Chiropractic Centre in believing that what we put in our mouths affects our health. Dr. Ryan Fox is a good listener and a gentle and thorough practitioner. I would recommend him to anyone, and I do."

  • "My husband, Sean, just left after his second visit and I just want to tell you that you absotively posiLUTELY ROCK! He feels GREAT and is really amazed at the whole process of the adjustments/how you were working on his jaw as well as the diet info you’re giving him (which we can both benefit from – I had NO idea about the fruits vs. veggies information!!!!). He’s impressed with how you read the x-rays and how informed you seem to be all-around. I hope you understand how BIG that is… my husband is NOT impressed by people in the medical field very easily! It’s a HUGE compliment! Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!! :)"

  • "When I started seeing Chapel Hill Chiropractic Centre, I was experiencing a lot of problems with my upper body, especially in my shoulders and neck. Chapel Hill Chiropractic Centre examined me and performed some adjustments, and quickly determined that the source of my problems was not the areas in distress, but, rather, a collapsed arch in my left foot. They showed me some simple exercises to do, provided sound advice and information, and recommended that I be fitted with orthotics. Since receiving them, my feet, back, shoulders and neck are benefiting from correct alignment. Thanks to Chapel Hill Chiropractic Centre’s expert care and insight I am able to once again enjoy life to its fullest."
