Dr. Jessica Fay is amazing! I went to see her for shoulder and neck issues and saw incredible improvements from her treatments. She used a combination of Active Release Techniques and gentle adjustments to help me increase my range of motion and relieve the pain and numbness I was dealing with in both shoulders. I've also gone in with severe headaches and her treatments have helped those as well! I'm very active in weight training and cardio and she helps keep me moving. What she does is truly magic! The front desk manager Jenny is also great. She went out of her way to help me schedule appointments even on holidays! I've also had a few massages at Oak City Chiropractic and they have all been some of the best I've ever had!In addition to all this, they are all some of the nicest people I have ever met. The office is such a relaxing environment. I look forward to my visits not only because I leave feeling incredible but, I really enjoy talking to everyone there! I highly recommend Oak City to anyone dealing with any type of pain. They'll take great care of you!!! 🙂

Dr. Fay is an excellent chiropractor. She was extremely helpful when it came to my herniated disk injury and ever since I have continued to go for regular adjustments. She is very knowledgeable not only in chiropractic care, but overall health and wellness. The staff is also top notch and helpful.

I have always been told to stay away from Chiropractors because it's not 'real medicine'. No amount of painkillers or doctors have given me the physical relief that Jessica has. She saw me immediately and adjusted me the same day, which some doctors will not do. Instead of a traditional adjustment, Jessica spent time developing a hybrid treatment that worked best for my injuries and comfort level. She took a visible curve out of my lower back that no other doctor had ever noticed or bothered to address. I recently relocated to California. It was very difficult to leave this practice! Jessica and Jenny have gone the extra mile to find me a new chiropractor for me out here. Additionally, the massage therapist that Jessica works with is nothing short of incredible. I encourage anyone in pain to take back control and go see this chiropractor and her stellar team.

I travel a lot for work. I don't always have access to an ergonomic work space, which ends up causing (literally) quite a bit of pain in the neck. Jessica and Michelle have been amazing in clearing that pain and associated stress out of my shoulders. You guys are the best!

Dr. Fay has been providing chiropractic care to me and my family for several years. I feel so very lucky to have found such a talented and caring practitioner. She listens. She and her staff are kind and attentive to my health care needs and work with me to provide care within my schedule. I highly recommend her practice.

Jess & Jen are fabulous. My entire family & friends I have referred get relief from many ailments at their relaxing new office. Their evening & weekend hours & willingness to squeeze in patients with emergency issues make the practice easy to access. They have an excellent nutritionist, Kim & massage therapists as well. They also have excellent health products available on site or they will order whatever you need. Their kindness & talents make it a great practice.

I've been getting chiropractic care off and on for 20+ years living in several different states. Oak City Chiropractic is the best clinic I've been to, by far. They are professional and caring folks. I came in with a debilitating hip injury from a fall and Dr. Jess had me back to pain free within a short time with a combination of traditional chiropractic and Active Release Therapy. I'd highly recommend Oak City Chiropractic to anyone in need of chiropractic care.

I love Oak City Chiropractic. Their hours are incredibly convenient so I can get in before work, or on the weekend. I have been to other chiropractors, but Dr Jessica is the only one who finally helped! She’s thorough, listens closely to what’s going on, and immediately helps take the discomfort away. Jenny is so kind and always remembers what’s going on. Both are gems!

I was raised by a chiropractor and have very high expectations of a chiropractic practice. Before going to Oak City, I saw 5 different Triangle chiros. Then Dr. Fay and Michelle (a wonderfully gifted massage therapist) helped me recover fully from a bad car accident and I will be forever grateful. Dr. Fay has also proven to be very good with my son when he’s needed adjustments. I recommend Oak City Chiropractic to everyone I know.

I have nothing but good things to say about Oak City Chiropractic. I have early-onset osteoarthritis in my hip which causes pain and limited mobility. Jess has worked to increase that mobility and has found as much success as possible. Her training and experience with ART set her apart in this city, and I feel better every time I finish a visit. It is clear Jess uses outcome-based decision-making to decide whether a client would benefit from more sessions, and I have never felt pressured to continue coming back for endless visits (a concern I have heard about other chiropractic practices). As a personal trainer, I have the opportunity to make recommendations to clients with injuries, which I take seriously. I have recommended Oak City many times, and will continue to do so. To top it off, the environment in the office is so calming. Many people feel nervous about trying a chiropractor for the first time, but this office feels more like a type of stress-free self-care to look forward to rather than dread - they have created an environment I could stay in for longer than my visit, just because it puts me at ease. If you feel unsure about whether a chiropractor is for you, I would definitely recommend giving Oak City and try and see what you think!

Jess and her team have been very helpful on 2 recent occasions where I suffered from a back injury. I was hesitant to visit a Chiropractor at first due to fear that it would actually make the situation worse. However, she made sure to ask a few important questions before implementing any kind of treatment plan. She acknowledged that her plan of action would be a bit different given that my injury was causing some inflammation and sensitivity. After a few visits, the pain subsided and I felt like I could finally resume a normal stance and walk. I'm confident that without any treatment, I may not have had the same end result (or it may have taken much longer to get there).When I had a similar back issue several months later around the holidays, I wasn't hesitant to give her team a call for a second round of treatment. I experienced the same results and am confident that it got me back to my normal day to day in a much quicker manner.On top of it all, the payment processing with my insurance was seamless. If I have any issues down the road, I'll make sure to give them a call right away.

I love Oak City Chiropractics, the staff is very friendly and always very helpful. I have a very busy schedule being a college athlete and they are always flexible. I find it very helpful that both doctors are trained in ART. I highly recommend.

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Cheyne! I had seen two other chiropractors in another city and neither were able to address my concerns as holistically or as quickly as Dr. Cheyne did. He's a great listener and really adapted his treatment to how my body was feeling each time I came in. He gave me exercises and tips to reduce pain at home, at work, and to prevent it from coming back. Go see him and feel better!

The first time I went to see Dr Jess I was in so much pain that I couldn't stand up straight. On my first visit, she explained exactly what was causing the problem and taught me how to help myself. In the years since this visit, Dr Jess keeps all of the normal aches and pains from frequent travel at bay. I have been to many chiropractors. Dr Jess's technique (with ART) is different then most others I have been to and truly is a more holistic approach. The office is great. Jenny is lovely. Every time I go for an appointment I feel like I had a mini spa visit.

I am grateful that Dr. Fay was recommended to me. She was able to provide relief from my plantar fasciitis that I did not receive from my podiatrist. Everyone at Oak City is welcoming and committed to making your experience positive.

Caregiving is at the core of Oak City Chiropractic's space, spirit and approach to well-being. Each of the two chiropractors brings a unique set of strengths and styles to their treatments, and both are gifted in listening to and learning about their patients. Our entire family has been warmly welcomed for frequent appointments, both urgent and planned. Recommend this practice with the highest praise!

Dr. Jessica Fay came highly recommended to me by a friend. She quickly got me back into tip-top shape. Also, I received a wonderful 60 minute massage here complete with hot stones. Very relaxing, clean and professional atmosphere with a very friendly staff. I highly recommend Oak City Chiropractic! Thanks.

I intentionally sought out a chiropractor with ART certification to help work out a very specific and challenging muscle dysfunction & nerve entrapment issue. I have been remarkably pleased with Dr. Jessica Fay's expertise to rehabilitate my hip function. She maintains her Masters ART certification, which demonstrates her commitment to providing the most comprehensive, advanced treatment protocols for her patients. In addition, Dr. Fay offers sincere, compassionate care in a serene, professional setting. She has earned my full trust and respect. For these reasons, I gladly drive an hour from my home to keep appointments with her. I highly recommend Oak City Chiropractic as an exemplary practice.

I was (keyword) suffering from arthritis in my hand to the point that it was painful to write or use my hand for all small movements. I went to Oak City hoping but not expecting to get some relief. Cortisone shots didn't work. Dr. Cheyne Ashline has fixed it. Honestly, it's 100% better. I just go back for maintenance now if anything bugs me but he's has given me my hand back. He's also helped me with hip/leg muscle tweaks from exercise. I highly recommend the entire practice.

Best chiropractic (plus ART) care in the Triangle, IMHO. I have been a client for more than 5 years coping with inoperable chronic pain from an injury and Jess has helped me more than any medication or surgery or implanted device has, and I have tried everything.The staff is kind, patient, and professional, and the additional services such as massage therapy are also top notch. Highly recommended.

From the time you walk through the door, you feel relaxed and welcome at Oak City Chiropractic, even when you arrive with kids in tow. The facilities are clean and comfortable, and I have never had a bad experience in my 3 years of going there. Dr. Jess is gentle and thorough, and communicates well with her massage staff to bring you the best comprehensive therapy. I consider Oak City to be my "happy place" - a place where I can enjoy quiet, relaxation, friendly interaction, and most importantly, chiropractic care and massage therapy that really works.

This place is fantastic. I live on the coast, but insist on coming to see Dr. Fay, who is an excellent chiropractor. I spend a lot of time on my feet for work, and she's been able to help me work through an old back injury to reduce pain. All of their staff are friendly and accommodating-- I highly recommend!

The staff at Oak City Chiropractic are second to none. Jenny the receptionist is wonderful. Every time I step into the office she gives a warm welcome with a huge smile. Important to feeling better and getting healthy is staying positive, having a strong mindset and having a caring support team. When you get treated here you can be sure that the staff will help support you in your journey to recovery or in my case staying healthy so I can pursue my sporting goals. Dr. Cheyne has taking good care of me for the last few months. He tests certain ranges of motions and can determine the right plan of action to having you feel better as soon as possible. Not to mention his great attitude which really helps in times we aren't always feeling our best to know that someone truly cares about our well being and wants to see us get better. Do yourself a favor and check them out if you have any issues regarding your aches and pains and they'll do their best to get you on the road to recovery. Thanks to them I am recovering from a back issue much quicker than I expected. Thank you Oak City Chiropractic for the genuine support!

I have been visiting Oak City Chiropractic for over a year. Dr. Fay and the staff are fantastic! They are very flexible (no pun intended) on working with my schedule and are always friendly and accommodating. In addition to emergencies that pop up I have been utilizing their Massage Therapy services twice a month for at least the last 8 months. Every one of them has been superb, and I can't speak highly enough of Jess and the work she has done for helping me with my rehabilitation. Thank you to everyone at Oak City, I can't recommend highly enough!!

Dr. Fay takes the time to listen and answer my questions. I had an injury that wasn't getting better after months and months of trying treatment elsewhere, and Dr. Fay got me feeling much better very quickly. I also really like the staff and the relaxed atmosphere here.

I've been going to Cheyne for a few months now and I can confidently say it's made a HUGE improvement in my chronic back and hip pain. Cheyne really takes time to listen and treat very specific issues and I highly recommend his services. Jenny is the office manager and she is an absolute delight to work with. Not only is everything very professional and friendly, but they really make you feel like you're their most important patient. They really care about you.
