What Our Patients Are Saying

Michael C. - My results at Raleigh Specific Chiropractic have been nothing short of amazing.

“I was an All-American distance swimmer, completely unaware of the damage that my 15+ years of training was doing to my body.  It wasn’t until later that I learned I’d developed a number of herniated and deteriorating discs from extreme overuse.  The problems began in my mid 30s and progressed rather rapidly.  The worst moments were the times I was unable to sit up or walk at all, requiring help from others to move 5-6 feet.  Over time, my condition evolved into pain I could only tolerate until mid-afternoon.  I would end up horizontal for the reminder of the day, trying anything to dull the pain just to fall asleep and do it again the next day.  There were no good days; they all fell into the category of “how much can I handle today”.  Life was grim!

Over the course of 10 years, there was nothing I did not try.  Multiple epidurals, dry-needling, physical therapy, acupuncture, (other) chiropractors, E-Stim machines, medications of all types, etc. Everything available was used at some point in time.  The best-case scenario from these therapies was a few tolerable months, but in most cases the relief was so short lived that it probably wasn’t worth trying in the first place.

My back not only affected me, but my whole family.  It was difficult to sit in a chair and work during the day. The longer I sat, the earlier in the afternoon I would find myself stuck in bed or on a couch with a number of machines, medications, heat/ice, or anything else that would help dull the pain.  Exercise was out, long walks were out; pretty much anything that would have me standing or sitting for more than 60 minutes was guaranteed to ruin the remainder of the day.  The worst moment and wake-up call was when my 4-year old son began walking around our home with his hand on the small of his back saying: “My back hurts today, I need to lie down”.  It brought tears to my eyes.

I was referred to Raleigh Specific Chiropractic by another swimmer who was actually my roommate in college.  We swam the same years, same events, and have almost the same back issues down to the specific vertebrae affected.

My results at Raleigh Specific Chiropractic have been nothing short of amazing.  Within 30 days, I was back on my feet with the pain reduced by about 80%.  Over the following 60 days: I started to exercise, play in the yard with my children, work in the yard and on the house; virtually everything in my life that I once enjoyed began to come back to me.  I am not naïve in believing the damage done over so many years can be completely reversed, but I am currently as close to 100% as I have been in 15 years, and I would very much accept my current position as not only a huge win, but a manageable way to live life moving forward.

My entire experience at Raleigh Specific Chiropractic has been unlike anything I have previously experienced.  Results aside, this is the most professional, knowledgeable, and polite group of people on the planet.  They care about their patients as individuals; wanting to know them personally, help with their overall well-being, and understand priorities in order to treat them appropriately.”


Samantha D. - Since beginning a correction plan with Drs. Workman and Winget, my pain levels have decreased

“About two years ago, I began to notice severe neck and back pain. My back especially had started to tighten up at work, making all movements increasingly painful. Basic activities of daily living were beginning to cause me discomfort, especially anything that required bending into a flexion or extension position.

I had tried several different forms of therapies including: taping, STIM, heat, stretching, needling, etc. I also saw other chiropractors, but had little success. The pain was beginning to affect my social life. My work, fitness routine, and sleep were all suffering. Even taking a deep breath was causing an increase in pain.

Luckily, a Google search led me to Raleigh Specific Chiropractic. Since beginning a correction plan with Drs. Workman and Winget, my pain levels have decreased. My workouts have improved and I am finally able to run longer distances. I have improved mobility and am falling asleep easier.

Everyone at RSC is very welcoming. It’s obvious they care about their patients’ lives and wellbeing. Here, I’m not just another face but a patient they remember at every visit. The entire staff is so friendly. It’s great to walk in and be greeted by name.”


Lindsay B. - My results have been more amazing than I could have imagined

“My neck and shoulder pain began when I started Cosmetology school in August 2021. It continued to get worse as time went on and it wasn’t until I started care at RSC that I finally started to notice any improvement. Not only did the doctors educate me about misalignments of the spine, but they also explained the source and reasons for my pain. Before I found Raleigh Specific Chiropractic I had: been to a neurologist, done physical therapy, and seen other chiropractors.

My neck pain was affecting every aspect of my life. I was uncomfortable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As a hair stylist, I was unable to take clients. When I was at home, I was unable to relax. Luckily, my neurologist referred me to RSC and suggested I set up a consult with Drs. Winget and Workman.

My results have been more amazing than I could have imagined. I have gained so much mobility and strength. I have felt more freedom than ever and am now thriving at work again.

The team here is incredible and beyond supportive. I always look forward to seeing the staff and being in their fun environment. They have taken more of an interest in me personally than any other doctor’s office I’ve been to. It’s great to know they care.”


Camden C. - I cannot express how incredible this process has been

Since 2019 I have experienced seemingly random bouts of nearly every neuropathic sensation one can in the pelvic and lower back: burning, stinging, tingling, numbness, even itchiness. You name it. I’ve been to countless doctors, specialists, physical and psychotherapists, and none were able to offer a definite diagnosis or sufficient solution for my symptoms. Fast forward to early 2022; after being introduced to power lifting, I recognized an increase in tension in my lower and upper back that would subsist regardless of rest or intervention. Naturally, I searched around for a chiropractor and Raleigh Specific Chiropractic was the highest reviewed nearby. I set up an appointment for their free consultation and expected a quick adjustment thereafter. I was wrong, and I’m glad I was.

On the day of my first appointment, I was greeted by the lovely staff up front with smiles and purpose. I was scanned, examined, and evaluated in no time by Dr. Jill Winget, who patiently listened when I explained all that I had been through over the years from my adolescent athletic years to weightlifting and working on a computer all day. She gave me hope that not only the symptoms I had chalked up to working out, but also the previous from years before may be caused by subluxations of my lower spine. My follow up discussion with Dr. James Winget is what made all the difference, however. He and I sat down and discussed every symptom I was having, from numbness in my left hand and losing visual focus to that of intense shocks and burning sensations. “We can get you better,” he said assuredly. Of course, he couldn’t be certain all my symptoms would be cured, but he at least offered the potential of it happening. That potential meant everything. Only four months have passed since that day, and one might say it’s been miraculous to see the improvements thus far.  Here are just a few:

  • I have levels of energy unmatched since a decade prior
  • My overall mental state has improved with decrease in irritability and forgetfulness, as well as
  • an increase in attention, focus, and general sense of well-being
  • Symptomatic events have been reduced to nearly zero in the past 2-3 months
  • I have no difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
  • I am no longer medicated for ADHD

I cannot express how incredible this process has been and cannot thank Dr. Winget, Dr. Jill, Dr. Workman, Kirsten, Sam, and Taylor enough for the life they’ve given back through their work, and I hope you’ll give them a chance as well. As those at RSC say, it’s not to make you feel better, but to make you heal better.
