Dr. Devin Atkinson, Doctor of Chiropractic/Owner

Hi there, I’m Dr. Devin, the owner here at Atkinson Family Chiropractic. I’m a chiropractor, business owner, father, novice kayaker and all round lover of life.

If you’re experiencing headaches, feeling older than your age or if you looking for guidance on how to feel good, move well and look good then you sound like someone I’d love to work with.

I’ve been a Chiropractor now for 15 years…ouch, that went fast.

I know this might sound like a cliché but I really just love helping people with cranky heads. It makes my heart smile (and after 15 years of practice I’m getting pretty good too).

I love working with moms and dads that want to be able push themselves to the next level of performance in the gym, the field, the office, or the boardroom.

You should also know that when it comes to health care I’m a bit of a “greenie”. I think less is more, I’m not a fan of drugs or surgery and I think the best doctor in the world is actually the one inside of you.

Click here to watch a video I recently shot about what I think is one of the most overlooked factors in getting long lasting relief from headaches.

You can call the office at 704-827-6560 or email us at chiro@atkinsonfamilychiro.com to make an appointment.

Nalani Gates – Chiropractic Assistant

Hey y’all! My name is Nalani Gates and I’ve been with Atkinson Family Chiropractic since 2014. Prior to joining Dr. Devin’s team, I was a patient myself. I was treated with such great care and I loved the feel of the office environment so much, that when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped at the chance to work for Dr. Devin. I wanted to be part of what he was doing, making a real difference in people’s lives. I wear many hats throughout the day, and I must say that working here is very fulfilling😊

Once you visit our office, you’ll notice immediately that we are not your average Dr’s office. Our patients quickly feel right at home…many have even said we feel like an extension of their own family. As a matter of fact, that’s one of the highest compliments we receive as a team. I take great pride in that! As your first contact, and your last, I’m here to make your visit as smooth as possible and answer any questions that you may have.

I’ve been married for 23 years, to Darrin, and we have 3 children…Sage, Caden and Chaz! I’m also the proud mother of 2 precious Yorkies, Cort and Piper. They always keep us entertained❤ As our children have gotten older, we thoroughly enjoy date nights, baking together and being on a beach as often as possible.

Dr. Devin’s Chiropractic Family Tree

Dr. Devin's Chiropractic Family Tree

Dr. Devin’s grandfather, Dr. Ray Elwart, went to the chiropractor because he had narcolepsy (fall asleep for no reason). After he was cured of narcolepsy, he took his daughters, Dr. Linda Elwart-Atkinson and Dr. Cynthia Shaft-Toll, to the chiropractor. Dr. Linda’s anemia was cured and Dr. Cyndy was cured of her converging strabismus (cross eyed).

Dr. Ray Elwart and his brother, Dr. Walter Elwartowski, went to Palmer College of Chiropractic together and have passed down their love of chiropractic and of helping people through 3 generations now!
