Chiropractic Care

I leave no bone, muscle or nerve unattended.  You will experience a one of a kind treatment experience with Dr. Patel which will help you feel confident that you can enjoy a more active and healthy lifestyle once you walk out the door.

Personal Training

I believe movement is very healing.  Exercise is very important to supporting proper healing and function of the body, especially when combined with chiropractic care.  Ask me about the different levels of exercise which can benefit anyone of any fitness level.

Testimonials

 “I have been a personal training client of Dr. Avani Patel for over 12 years. Dr. Patel comes with a wealth of knowledge and expertise that she clearly demonstrates in creating a safe and effective exercise/fitness program to meet your needs and maximize your results. She kept me focused on my physical health while I was pregnant with my son and I was able to drop the baby weight easily. Dr. Patel is engaging and professional. If you’re like me and exercise for the benefits of working out but don’t really enjoy working out, Dr. Patel makes working out feel much less like a chore. I also have been a chiropractic patient of Dr. Patel for over 10 years. I was skeptical of the benefits of chiropractic adjustments but Dr. Patel took the time to explain to me how the adjustment affects the body and now if I don’t get regular adjustments, I can feel the difference. Over the last 10 years Dr. Patel has helped me manage a sprained ankle, shoulder injury, and plantar fasciitis. Her knowledge of the human body and how it affects physical health makes her an excellent personal trainer and chiropractor. I highly recommend Dr. Patel!” Dr. Lite

 

“I met Dr. Patel by chance, at a time when I could barely move my neck and was in constant pain; I am so thankful for that chance meeting. The results each time I have an appointment with her are AMAZING! I now see her about once a month to keep my neck feeling great.

Dr. Patel is knowledgeable and passionate about what she does, she is also extremely personable and friendly.

Seriously, don’t hesitate to give this fantastic chiropractor a chance to make you feel better.” Karen

 

“I have had chronic lower back pain for years. Sometimes it’s difficult to find the time to get to the doctor. Dr. Avani gives me regular adjustments. She is prompt, professional, a great communicator and I love that she recommends stretches to strengthen my weaker areas.

I highly recommend Dr. Avani Patel for your chiropractic needs.” Giovanna


“I have chronic shoulder and neck issues. Dr. Avani Patel was recommended to me by a friend in the field. She is prompt, professional, and always friendly. She takes her time with my adjustments and regularly recommends helpful stretches and strengthening exercises. She is affordable and willing work with my schedule. I highly recommend her chiropractic services!” Carmen


 “Mine is a common story. I was too busy working to take time for myself by exercising and keeping my shoulder muscles strong. For several years I have undergone minor surgery, physical therapy and lots of pain on my frozen shoulder without recovery until Dr. Patel helped heal my left shoulder. Dr. Patel has made big, steady improvements in my shoulder (and whole body)! The Chiropractic treatments allow me to be more flexible and have given me back the ability to work out with weights. Don’t wait, take care of your body! Avani Patel has helped me get my life back!

I highly recommend Dr. Avani Patel for Chiropractic and for Personal Trainer. She maximizes your workout time for best results.” Sandra


“I was very reluctant to have a chiropractor work on my back, but I injured my back after starting to train for a half marathon. It was a very painful low back injury and Dr. Patel came to my home several times to provide treatment. She also gave me exercises to do in between. The results were very good and I was able to complete my training. Dr. Patel is very pleasant to work with and she spends a lot of time on the treatments.” Cheryl  


“Dr. Avani is fantastic!  We’ve been working together in a doctor/patient relationship for the last few years when I initially saw her regarding some unrelenting neck and back pain. I felt tight, contorted and just generally out of whack. It turned out that my spine was out of alignment – which makes sense after 30 years.  In short, Dr. Avani’s adjustments and various treatment methods alleviated my issues and I couldn’t be more grateful to her for being there right when I needed her expertise. Her professionalism and bedside manner are also top-notch."-Jason


"I’ve been seeing Dr. Patel for several years now, and she’s fantastic. I consider myself a recreational athlete, so being able to enjoy my time on the field, in the pool, on the trail or in the gym is very important to me. Dr. Avani definitely helps keep me injury free and happy. She provides excellent service and follow-through, and truly cares about my overall well-being.  I’m very comfortable recommending her to friends and colleagues and always look forward to my time with her.” -Suzanne  


"I was a little intimidated at first by working with a personal trainer because I’ve never done any weight training before, but Avani was great. On our first session, she was extremely patient with me when I was still trying to figure out how to work out properly. She’s always upbeat and constantly pushes me to do more and to work harder. It’s been a few months that I’ve been with her and I can tell that I’ve gotten stronger. I’m receiving more compliments on my physique and it feels great. I’ve also had a couple of chiropractic adjustments with her. After each adjustment, I find myself feeling more relaxed and am able to sleep so much better for the next several nights. She’s been amazing.  –Becky


“I was referred to Dr. Patel by a colleague a few months ago when I started to feel pain and tension increasing in my neck and back due to some physically demanding work and hobbies. After just the first visit, I felt immediate relief from what had been bothering me for weeks prior. She worked out the muscle tension with some massage and stretching techniques, then adjusted my spine from neck to lower back to return everything to proper alignment. She is very knowledgeable about what causes these issues and how to keep them from returning. Her treatment and advice has helped me stay pain free and my neck, shoulders and back are finally feeling the way they’re supposed to. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel for her exceptional expertise, professional service and very reasonable fees.” – Brian


"I was always afraid of going to a chiropractor because I thought it would hurt. But it doesn’t. It feels more like a massage and you just hear some popping noises. But afterward, you feel relaxed and great. I am currently in law school, and that in itself is physically exhausting. I find myself hunched over books for hours at a time, which leads to my lower back aching and occasionally my middle back. I am constantly stressed out, particularly around final exams, so my muscles are always tense, especially my shoulders. Going to a chiropractor has helped a lot. It is so much easier for me to study and enjoy life when I am not in pain. I try not to hunch so much, but even so, my lower back pains are not as often as they once were." -Sarita


"Currently my family uses the services of Dr. Avani Patel for our chiropractic health needs. I have used the services of many chiropractic providers in the past so I can say without a doubt we are in good hands. Dr. Patel knows her stuff. She is caring, thorough, and professional. She incorporates many modalities into her practice to ensure her clients get the best treatment for what ails them. She is thoughtful at the same time she is efficient and has wonderful patience, especially since my daughter is special needs. I hurt my back in such a way I was afraid I couldn’t adequately care for my family and continue to work. Within a short period of time I was already feeling the benefits of her treatments and was back to work. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend her to my family and friends.” -Yvonne


“I have had several different personal trainers since I became more health and fitness conscious and I can emphatically say that Avani Patel is the best. She knows exactly what my strengths and weaknesses are and how to motivate me and push my limits – all this while making the training sessions fun and interesting. Also important is the fact that I feel comfortable discussing my personal limitations and asking questions about health and nutrition. I recommend Avani Patel to anyone considering the services of a personal trainer.” – Kitty 


 

This is an email response from a client I treated while he was on vacation to CA from South Carolina. I emailed him to follow up after he got home to make sure all went well after his treatment with me:

Hi Dr. Patel,

I appreciate you checking on me. I am doing much better and I praise the Lord that He led me to call you instead of going to the ER. I was really amazed at how much difference your treatment made in such a short time. It sure seems miraculous to me. About 2 1/2 hours after you left I was able to stand up with help from my sons. That I could stand at all was wonderful, but also the pain was much less as well. I felt better as the evening progressed. Since our flight was at 7AM out of LAX I got up at 3AM and felt slightly better and was able to take a shower. I was also able to drive to the airport. I had upgraded our airplane seats to business class so it would be more comfortable and Airtran had a wheel chair waiting to get me to the gate. I did the little exercises you told me to do off and on during the flight and in Atlanta and in Charlotte I did not use the wheel chair, but took it pretty slow. It was so good to get home since before you came to help me I really thought it would be several more days before I could travel. I have been to my Chiropractor here four times since I got home and will go again today. I still have soreness, but haven’t missed any work this week.

I want to sincerely thank you. You were very professional; very careful; very competent; and very kind. Your fee was also very reasonable. I could tell you really wanted to help me and that it was not just a job. Thank you very much and please feel free to use what I have said as a customer testimonal, because it is all true. I will pray that God will bless you and your family.

Sincerely,
Pastor Gregg Faulkner
Charlotte, NC

FAQs

 

I HEARD THAT IF I GO TO THE CHIROPRACTOR ONCE, I HAVE TO GO FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!

Why does this have to sound so bad? Lifetime care for better health is something I choose to do every day by eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, laughing often, finding ways to decrease stress levels, and getting my own regular chiropractic care. It takes time, effort and patience to live a healthy life, but I do all of this because it makes me feel good, strong and healthy.  By offering lifetime chiropractic care to you, I am giving you an opportunity to be in control of improving your health every day, if you choose to do so.


 

ARE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS SAFE?

Absolutely! Chiropractic care is safe for people of all ages ranging from newborns to seniors, and even pregnant women. Adjustments are gentle and tailored to suit the individual receiving the care. With a wide array of adjusting techniques out there, you can be sure to get the safest method for you. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to your chiropractor before making your appointment, and don’t hesitate to do your research about different techniques, even if it means trying out a few different chiropractors until you find one you are most comfortable with.  Doctors of chiropractic go through many years of schooling and an extensive curriculum.  They are required to complete 24 hours of yearly continuing education to make sure they are up to date with current events and research so they can continue delivering safe and effective health care to the community.


DO THE ADJUSTMENTS HURT?

An adjustment usually does not hurt. However, if you are in severe pain, the adjustment can feel uncomfortable in the beginning of your care.  If you experience pain and are feeling apprehensive during the treatment, be sure to let your chiropractor know so he or she can modify the treatment for you.  Occasionally, you may experience mild soreness or more discomfort following your first few adjustments before you start to experience relief of your symptoms because the adjustments are reconnecting nerve signals and re-positioning muscle and bone – each of which were most likely not working the way they should have been, therefore leading up to the pain you went to the doctor for.
