I am returning today for my evaluation results and to discuss possible treatments. I am optimistic and look forward to working with this team.

High quality service, professional and friendly service
I am well pleased with my experience with Ignite Wellness Chiropractic Center. The staff have been professional, friendly and accommodating with my work schedule and sensitive to my pain. The doctors have provided me with high quality service with each visit.
All staff are professional and kind. The doctors take time to explain everything from gait evaluation to X-rays and treatment options.
My best experience with any chiropractic service
Professional care & great service!
Today's visit was a great way to follow-up a strenuous 60 mile bike ride over the weekend. Dr. Avery focused on making the adjustments that helped to reduce the lower back pain I felt. Thanks for great care. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for better quality of health.
Very professional and super kind !
My first visit to Ignite was very pleasant. The staff was super nice and both chiropractors met with me. Very professional and top shelf customer service.
Today's meeting went very well. This was an initial consultation. I was given a "free" visit on behalf of my wife who is a patient. I am impressed with the professional staff and their through attention to detail. I will definitively recommend the team to anyone in need of Chiropractic help.
Highly effective and kind of fun
I have had not great experiences with chiropracty in the past but was convinced by my friend's results to give Shannon and Avery a shot. They have helped me immeasurably with back and neck pain and have worked with my limitations from recent hip replacement. I look forward to my appointments and always walk out feeling a lot better than I did when I arrived. Thanks Shannon, Avery, Katrina and Allison.
High quality professional service
The doctors are true skilled professionals who sincerely care about their patients. I utilize Ignite for their preventive services rather than specific treatment, and I'm kept in great shape!
High level of Customer Focus
From the time you walk in to the office you are treated as a valued customer. Everyone takes the time to answer questions, making sure they understand your needs. Your well being is their goal.
Well Rounded Approach to Health Care
I've been coming to Ignite for 18 months. When I first started I'd been in pain for several months. The process wasn't immediate but my health problems didn't occur overnight either. I'm so happy to say I've been pain free for over a year. Drs. B and G and their wonderful staff are now a regular part of my health regimen.
I love the folks at Ignite. They do a great job.
I'm so blessed to have found Ignite Wellness. The Champions of Chiropractors!
I have been going to Ignite for probably a couple of years now. I remember initially I really didn't think anything was super wrong since I was used to dealing with my aches and pains. Dr. G and Dr. B were extremely helpful right from the beginning. After awhile they felt there were other issues I should get checked out so referred me for an MRI. Well, they were right... I had numerous issues. They started right in and worked on me like the true professionals they are. I couldn't have asked for better support, service and knowledge. I have learned so much from them and not just about my chiropractic care. Dr. G has been like a superwomen with knowledge in so many different areas. I realize having a healthy spine is something I want always so Ignite will always be a part of my wellness. Thanks to the whole staff! I can always expect a smiling face when I walk into the office!
Great experience. Been going for awhile now. Just today I informed Dr Bigbie about a new knee problem and she immediately knew what to do. Always a great experience.
I moved here 4 years ago and had used chiropractors before due to chronic pain from sciatica. I saw Dr. B and G at O2 and received a free assessment. Since using Ignite I am pain free unless I have prolonged sitting and driving, then they come to my immediate rescue. I continue once weekly visits and have drastically reduced my arthritis medicine. Thank you Drs. B and G.
The treatment works!
I've been a client at Ignite for 2 years and my neck stiffness has significantly decreased. These doctors have manipulated my jaw for tmj, my lower back for degenerative disc problems, my neck/shoulder area for finger numbness and my knees for joint pain. I think there's nothing they can't help. If you have an issue they will research the best, wholesome treatments for you. The facility is conducive to healing, the Drs. are knowledgeable and professional and they have a good rapport with their clients.
Who could ask for more?
I am always greeting with a smile and warm words. I never have to wait for treatment. The doctors are knowledgeable and caring. Plus, I don't deal with all the pain I used to have! So, who could ask for more?
I'm extremely pleased with the service I have received. I feel very confident that Dr's Bigbie and Garrabrant will correct my back issues.
I receive regular chiropractic adjustments for back and leg issues. Dr. Bigbie, Dr. Garrabrant and their staff are extremely professional and make the visits very pleasant. I would recommend Ignite Wellness to anyone looking for pain relief!
Very friendly service from the moment I arrived. Everyone was great especially Dr. Avery Garrabrant. She was great, she explained everything that she was going to do to help me find out what the problems were.
Everyone is very friendly. I have never had to wait a long time for service. I am usually in and out in 15 minutes.

Delighted and hopeful with my treatment
I had no idea that I had a misaligned spine until I saw my x-rays. I have been battling a sciatic nerve with other issues around my leg for two years or so. The almost free consultation fee with free x-rays opened my eyes as to how serious my problem is! Dr. Bigbie gave me hope with can be done although the process will take long due to a long term underlying problems. She gave me hope and I started my treatment the following week. I am optimistic with the treatment because of the hope I got from the stuff. I am willing to give it a try, so far I am seeing changes in just week. My coordination between my brain cells and spine is slowing connecting well. A nice clean office ran beautifully by young ladies, kudos!! I highly recommend Ignite wellness to whoever has given up or needs help with their body. Keep up the good work!!!!
Professional, polite, knowledgeable
I had no interest in seeking chiropractic care. However, specific problems led me to listen to my personal trainer and head to Ignite Wellness. I am only two weeks into treatment, but can see the benefits of a healthier spine already. Great place. Great people. Have recommended to a number of people!
Today was my consultation which included xrays and exam. Very thorough and very professional. Everyone is so kind and friendly. I go back on Monday for results and the game plan if it is determined that they will be able to help me. Looking forward to the next visit. If you have never been to a chiropractor, or if you have had an unsatisfactory experience, I would urge you to give this practice a chance.
Hopeful (and Delightful) Experience
Making an appointment: I appreciated very much the friendly manner in which your appointment staff scheduled my appointment. You can tell she was smiling while she left me a message on my home phone. That says a lot. Welcome upon arrival: The reception staff is very welcoming and friendly. I like being told what's going to happen before it happens. Time with Shannon: I very much appreciated the thoroughness of my consult with Shannon. I recognize humility and genuine caring when I see it. The consult felt very hopeful to me. I had an experience with an Orthopedic Doctor (with a specialty in sport's medicine) several months ago regarding my right foot. I spent $250 to hear: "Mr. Brown, I'm not really sure what's going on with your foot. I'm sorry to say, but I think you're just unlucky (He actually used those words) and are just going to have to live with what's going on. if things get bad, we can do surgery." Uggggg!! Conversely, Shannon said things like: "I think I can definitely help you with what's going on." That gave me a lot of hope. Thanks so much to all of you. I look forward to my follow-up to discuss my results and a plan of attack on Monday. Have a nice weekend... Dave
Can't Wait To Get Started
Came in today for an evaluation. Was greeted by Allison who was so kind and professional! Met with Dr Garrabrant who was so kind and provided a thorough examination. Tomorrow I will return to receive my results and create a plan for better health moving forward! I feel and believe that there is hope in relieving my pain and improving my quality of life!
I would like to thank Dr. G and Dr. B at Ignite Wellness for all the care and support they have given me this last year. I returned to my specialist and he did tests and I had major improvements in my mobility.The range of motion in my neck is so much better. What a great team, Dr.G, Dr. B and Alison.
Drs. Bigbie and Garrabrant have helped me SO much. Their office is clean. They are always on time. Their office assistant, Allison, is super helpful, professional and kind. I initially went to Ignite Wellness for some pain in the back of my knee. The first time we met, X-rays were taken of my neck and spine. The doctors explained their interpretation of the imaging, their recommendations, and their rationales. In addition to addressing my knee pain, they are also working to realign my spine after 13 years of rowing. I've been to the practice about six times and can already tell a significant difference in pain reduction, posture and mobility. I was also given exercises to help strengthen my weaknesses, and additional exercises to work on at home will be introduced to me in the upcoming weeks. I have nothing but positive things to say :). Hands down, excellent care.
We can rebuild you, we have the technology...
Dr Garrabrant & Dr Bigbie are very personable and work together as a team seamlessly, making the care they provide pain-free and seemingly effortless. I feel confident that they're going to make me better than I was before; stronger; faster. Although this isn't All State, I still feel like I'm in good hands.
I was treated very nicely by all the staff and they acted like I was their only concern. All very professional and caring. I felt that they were sincerely trying to help make me healthier.
Ignite Wellness Chiropractic Center has made my days more fun and enjoyable. Thank you.
I love my doctors, Dr.G and Dr. B. They are true professionals. They care about their patients and listen to our complaints. Even if we cannot verbally explain our pain level they just seem to know what hurts and where it hurts, and then they fixed my problems with out my saying a word. Thank you. Also want to let Alison know she's wonderful and and always makes me smile. Thank you Alison.
My experience with Ignite, 5 STARS all the way!!!
I have been going to Ignite for almost a year. I consider them to be the best Chiropractic Doctors I have ever encountered.They listened to my complaints, they listened to my expectations, explained my conditions to me and let me know what they could do for me and how long it would take for me to begin feeling better. Alison always greets us as soon as we walked through the door, always smiling. Drs. B and G are just wonderful. Their knowledge of the human body is impeccable. One more thing I really enjoy, they have FREE classes for their patients to attend to learn about our bodies and why problems happen. I could go on but I will stop for now. Ms Susie
You walk into the coolest office with the sweetest office staff. The doctors at Ignite wellness are so professional, caring, great energy! My family will always visit this practice!
Great initial impression - great personnel, great facilities, great service - very impressed!
Great initial impression - great personnel, great facilities, great service - very impressed! This was my first appointment, and I was very impressed and satisfied with everything. I look forward to my next appointment!
I have not yet returned for my follow up visit, but so far consulting with the professionals at Ignite has been a good experience. Everyone there is polite, courteous and super friendly!
I'm not sure what sorcery is at work in Dr. B's fingertips but the pain I've been experiencing for over a year, that no orthopedist could address, is dissipating after a few visits to Ignite. The staff is very gracious and professional and the facilities are clean and comfortable. Couldn't be happier.
They continue to be very professional. They explained every procedure, from the cold laser process to the rolling table for your back, and answered all my questions.
Excellent professional care with knowledgeable staff. They listen and sincerely want to help you. Everyone is positive and friendly.
First impressions: Friendly Clean Prompt Professional Confident Modern Caring Knowledgeable
Love you guys. All nice even when I am grumpy and whiney. Thank you !
Caring, efficient, professional!
I can already feel a difference after a few visits! Everything is explained to me and I am totally comfortable and confident with the care I am receiving. The entire staff is efficient, caring, knowledgeable and attentive. Thank you for helping me with hip and knee pain!
I always look forward to seeing the Dr. whom provide such an amazing Service and you can see they truly take what they do so serious and work very hard at helping you with what ever challenges you may have.
A pleasure as usual! Both Doctors are always cheerful and ready to give informed answers to all questions. I would recommend them both to friends.
Always the Best Chiropractic Care
Once again, you assisted with keeping me feeling great and off prescription medicines. After the new treatment today for my knee, it is totally out of mind now, no pain or nagging sensation. Thank you also for your flexibility in schedule today as unavoidable interruptions interfered with my regularly scheduled visit.
Shannon was wonderful. the exam was very professional and quick. I did not like the videos. Seemed more like propaganda than educational to get me in the right "mindset" I can understand it probably leads to more business but I did not need to be convinced I needed chiropractic care. thank you.
High quality service, professional
Excellent service and knowledge abt topics. Best in chiropractic in the Triangle
Quality, Professional Service in a Friendly Environment
I have been going to Ignite for over a year due to degenerative disc disease. The personal welcome from the staff is appreciated, then the individual care performed on me varies as my body improves each week. I can't thank them enough for adjusting their care to my changing needs. The inservice training they take is helps to keep them current with the latest techniques in the business, that was demonstrated today on my knee. I'm having great results with that advanced treatment.
Ignite Wellness ....Personalized, warm and friendly, expert and professional care!
I can hardly believe that we are excited about going to any kind of doctor! My husband and I are always anxious to arrive for our appointment and thrilled when we leave. After 30-45 minutes, we are just that much better. Slowly but surely, we can already feel subtle improvements in our overall health.
