Here’s what our patients have to say about our service.
Outstanding staff and doctors. From the time you walk through the doors they make you feel like part of the family. The staff takes the time to listen to your needs and they work with you on scheduling and insurance. (which is a big plus) The doctors take their time to educate you about your treatment and communicate your progress so that you fully understand whats going on. I'm dealing with the sciatic nerve and at first my primary physician was working with me and I wasn't getting anywhere; I was told Akridge & Akridge and Dr. Lacey had me standing straight up and walking in less than 2 weeks. This is the place to go! Hands down.. Oh yeah I almost forgot.. They are affordable, so don't let your budget hold you back from treatment, because they won't.
Short story: The people at Akridge & Akridge are kind, helpful, knowledable, and so far have been the only people to accurately diagnose what was hurting my back and hip. Their prices are very reasonable if you aren't covered by insurance. 5/5 Would absolutely recommend visiting them for a consultation.
Long story: I have to say that I was incredibly reluctant to go to the chiropractor, even while my back was thrown out so painfully that I couldn't sit or bend at the waist. I hadn't had much success with chiropractors before--most had just adjusted by back (with varying success in pain relief), and gave me exercises to do (that didn't seem to work). So I had resorted to just trying to let my back fix itself--usually with a combination of Motrin and rest (and hope that it would just right itself the next day), and a few of those aforementioned exercises. This got me through the last five years. Well, with my last thrown out back, none of the exercises worked, rest didn't work, and Motrin did nothing. Two weeks go by with no relief.
I ended up going to my PCM, who told me that I had thrown out my back due to straining my piriformis muscle, and then he gave me a couple of stretches to try and relief the muscle which should have relieved the back pain. Five days later, and still no relief. I had been talking to a friend of mine who recommended Akridge and Akridge. He had been going there for a while by that point and had nothing but good words to say.
At that point, I was willing to give anything a try, so I finally stopped by. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and got me scheduled for a consultation. When I finally got in, after x-rays, I found that what I'd been told over the years (that I had sciatica and such)--was a misdiagnosis, and that I really had arthritis in my lower back and some bulging disks in a region that wasn't related to sciatica--along with the piriformis syndrome which was pulling my lower back out of place. Dr. Craig then worked on my back.
I couldn't believe how much better I felt--with just that one adjustment (and stretching the piriformis in a way totally contrary to what my PCM said). I was convinced. I got signed up for a few more appointments, and now I feel 90% better. I have a few more appointments to go, but I really can't tell you just how amazingly different things are. For the longest time, I've been incredibly inflexible--having not been able to touch my toes (or even mid-shin) for more than a decade now. I always thought I just needed to stretch more. After a few sessions, I can reach my toes with ease! What on earth, really?? How long had I been hurt? I can sit with no pain, I can sleep with no pain, and I can get up and down, pick up my kids, tie my shoes with no pain. I don't know if I can say everyone would have the same results as me, but what I can say is that the people at Akridge and Akridge CARE and know what they are talking about. They are incredibly friendly, and even though my insurance doesn't cover chiropractic care, their prices are VERY reasonable. I can't recommend them enough! 5/5 stars all the way.
Awesome staff, very professional, and authentic; Dr. Craig worked with my 14 year old son and the results are outstanding. Overall experience is positive and would highly recommend.
Dr. Craig Akridge and the staff at Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic have changed my life. After doing CrossFit for about a year, my body, specifically, my lower back and knees, were screaming at me. The pain that I was experiencing was debilitating. I was lost, I didn’t know how or if I was going to be able to remedy the pain, which was scary, because I thought I was going to have to stop doing CrossFit. It was apparent that I needed to start taking recovery just as important as I was taking training. I had heard through the CrossFit community that Chiropractic care was common and that I should look into it. I made an appointment to see Dr. Craig on a whim. I literally had no idea what I was getting into. I knew nothing about Chiropractic care. All I knew was that I wanted to continue to do CrossFit and perform without pain. Today, as I write this review, I am pain free and back to performing at 100%. I strongly encourage you to make an appointment at Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic. Your goals are their goals. And it’s important to note that they’re not concerned about short-term relief. Dr. Craig made it very clear that he was going to remedy the pain I was experiencing so I could continue to do CrossFit into my 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and beyond. Dr. Craig and Dr. Lacey and the staff at Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic are amazing! I don’t know where I would be today without the care I have received from Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic.

Absolutely love Dr. Lacey! Worked with Dr. Craig a few times but Lacey has literally solved every ailment and discomfort. Wouldn't go anywhere else!
I'm not one to go to a Chiropractor unless it's absolutely gotten to that point. I have only been in the area for six months and love the staff as much as Dr. Lacey and Dr. Craig Akridge! They are amazing people! Know exactly what they are doing and I was extremely impressed that Dr. Lacey knows what CRPS is because a lot of Pain Management Doctors do not even know what it is!! I have no doubt I will be referring a lot of people to this office!!!
I was in a auto accident and had multiple issues from spinal sprains to nerve issues. Tried PT for over a month and it helped some but I was still having severe pain in my upper back and neck. I heard wonderful things about Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic and decided to give it a try. AMAZING! By the end of my first week I was able to move without shooting pain. Not only has Dr. Craig worked wonders on my back, but I have suffered from Migraine headaches for as long as I can remember and since I started treatment, I have had NO migraines! Now most of my family and even some friends have started coming. Not only are Dr. Craig and Dr. Lacey amazing, but the staff is fantastic also!
