Dr. Devin Atkinson, Doctor of Chiropractic/CEO

Hi there, I’m Dr. Devin, the owner/CEO here at Atkinson Family Chiropractic. I’m a chiropractor, business owner, father, novice woodworker, 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 18 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 18 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

My name is Nalani Gates and I’ve been with Atkinson Family Chiropractic since 2014. Prior to joining the team, I was a patient myself. I was treated with such great care that when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped at the chance to work for Dr. Devin. I wear many hats throughout the day, and I must say that working here is very fulfilling.

Once you visit our office you will 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. That’s one of the highest compliments we receive as a team. I take great pride in that! As your first contact and last, I’m here to make your visit as smooth as possible.

I’ve been married to Darrin for 25 years. We have three children. Sage, Caden and Chaz. Sage recently became a father which in turn made me a LaLa! I have to say since Gray’s arrival life has gotten a lot sweeter. I’m also a proud Navy Mom to my middle son Caden and Chaz is living his best life 😁.

We have two Yorkies, Cort and Piper. They fill in the gaps of our busy days and keep us entertained. Since basically becoming empty nesters, we thoroughly enjoy date nights, playing trivia, lake days and we get to the beach as often as possible.

Laura Sherrill – Chiropractic Assistant

My name is Laura Sherrill. I’m the newest team member of Atkinson Family Chiropractic. However, I’ve been a patient here for 7 years prior to joining this wonderful practice. I believe in chiropractic care because it is the only thing that helps with my lower back pain. Not to mention
that Dr. Devin, Nalani and Vivienne are the best people to work with!

I have been married for 20 years. I have 4 amazing children. Lincoln and Lauren are my twins
and are 19 years old. Adam is 16 and Sam is 12.

I love me some Jesus! My heart belongs in the mountains. I am always adding new DVDs and
CDs to my collection. Just call me old school 😁 I look forward to helping y’all anyway I can.

Vivienne Colon – LMBT #8950

How you doin? Can you tell I am from New York? Let me introduce myself, my name is Vivienne Colón. I’ve been married to my wonderful and endearing husband Richie for 30 yrs. and together we raised two beautiful children, my daughter Brittany and son TJ. My family and I moved down to this beautiful state of North Carolina and made Denver our home for the past 17 yrs. I must say we absolutely love it here.

I have been a neuromuscular massage therapist for over 13 yrs. I am a multi-bilingual therapist proficient in therapeutic and deep tissue massage. I am also certified for Swedish, prenatal, Tai stretch, hot stones , cupping and reflexology. I use a creative technique and use my gift for sensing a body’s needs once I start a body work session providing a relaxing and healing touch. I pride myself in changing peoples lives physically, mentally and emotionally.

I have been working with Dr. Atkinson for the past 12 yrs. And I must say we have made a great team ever since. We have kept a professional atmosphere and yet like family we watch each other’s back ( no pun intended !😂) . There’s no doubt in my mind that when you love what you do and work side by side with someone that long, and you love who you work with, that’s says a lot about our office. Nalani and Laura have been an exceptional addition with their expertise as a warm welcoming staff at front desk making you feel as part of the Atkinson Chiropractic family.

On that note, come and see us soon and bring us all your pain, and like they say up north, Fuhgeddabouit!! 😎


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!
