Our mission is to provide the highest quality of chiropractic care possible by utilizing the latest and most proven methods. To do this we must not only treat the specific conditions, but also take the time to engage each individual with a customized care plan that gives that patient the best chance at remaining well. Education during ongoing care is a goal that will reduce the patients need for the doctor's care and help them become more independent, confident, and healthy individuals. Our tools to accomplish this include high quality specific corrective chiropractic care, customized nutritional programs, physiotherapy, muscle therapy, acupuncture, exercise consulting, and ongoing patient education on various health and wellness related topics.

Our office has extensive interaction with all specialties in the medical profession. We accept chiropractic patients from other professionals as well as refer patients for consultations in non-chiropractic cases. Our goals are to work together to promote the best health care possible for all patients.

Products & Services


Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice that originated thousands of years ago. It is based on the premise that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of energy & neurological function can cause health issues. Dr. Buckingham uses a specialized technique that combines elements of dry needling and electrical stimulation to stimulate chronic and acute trigger point relaxation/repair. This technique is very effective for tendinitis and muscle dysfunctions.

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patient’s special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Nutritional Counseling

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Buckingham can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Class IV Laser Therapy

Dr. Buckingham uses state of the art Light Force Laser equipment. Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery. Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated.

Chiropractic Care

We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Michael Buckingham has almost 20 years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

Customer Testimonials

I joined the gym in January 2009 and began working with a personal trainer and Dr. Buckingham. In the short time since then I have felt my body change from a slow downhill slide to an uphill journey. I have lost weight and body fat, and have gained muscle, strength, and energy. Even more important is the pleasure of feeling that I have a team on my side, and my overall sense of well-being is excellent.

Dr. Michael Buckingham's healing hands and holistic approach to medicine have cured my physical ailments including sever abdominal pain and lower back pain due to 5 years of stress, fatigue, and depression. Within a time frame of 6 weeks, my excruciating pain has now been alleviated and I find myself with returned vitality and energy! I literally believed that I would continue a pain-filled existence. As an actress, my career requires that my body stay tuned as a fine instrument. I now feel freedom, lightness in my being, my body, mind and soul- The combination of acupuncture and adjustments targeted at my "weak spots," have brought me healing.

It is with great enthusiasm that I write this testimonial to the exceptional treatment abilities of Dr. Michael Buckingham.

By way of personal background, I am fortunate to have two chiropractors in my immediate family, a brother and a brother-in-law - both of whom are exceptional doctors. I am told by both my brothers as well as many other chiropractors that I have tried that I am very difficult to adjust because of my unusual flexibility I also have repetitive use injuries in my upper back and shoulders from my early days a s a competitive swimmer. That being said I have never had a better chiropractic adjustment than the one I received from Dr. Buckingham.

I originally found Dr. Buckingham while I was living in Southern California. I later moved to Washington, DC. I found myself frequently traveling West back to California just to receive an adjustment from Dr. Buckingham as he is the ONLY chiropractor that has been able to help by back and shoulders.

I was happy to hear that he was moving his practice to North Carolina because I will not have to travel as far to receive care. I enthusiastically endorse the services of Dr. Michael Buckingham. He is a wonderful doctor and I strongly recommend his services to anyone.

By far, the best chiropractor I have ever seen. Not only does he provide excellent care, but he truly care about his patients and is an all around good person. I have been a patient of Dr. Buckingham for a few years now and has treated me through 2 pregnancies and I am certain that he is a big reason that I was able to maintain activity throughout both. My husband and I are both patients as well as our parents and siblings. I would recommend him to anyone seeking exceptional care. My kids also love coming with me to see him and Tara and the other ladies in the office. I won't go anywhere else! Top notch!

The Ladies at the front desk are very nice and helpful they always greet you with a smile. I love the laid back atmosphere it helps me not dread walking in! Dr. Buckingham is great, he listens to what you have to say and is determined to help you ! He wants to keep you from having surgery ! He's polite and makes you feel like you've known him forever!!

Dr. B is thorough and thoughtful and takes time to make sure that all of your concerns are addressed. The benefits of his adjustments last longer than I've experienced with other chiropractors. He's helped me with a lot of aches and pains over the years. In addition, my boyfriend went in for an emergency adjustment one day for lower back pain, and Dr. B quickly identified a rare disc problem and sent him to the ER immediately, helping to save him from paralysis. We're so grateful. Dr. Buckingham knows his stuff.

Dr. Buckingham is the first chiropractor I have found since moving here 11 years ago who has helped me. His staff are very accommodating and he knows his stuff! I highly recommend him!

When my husband had a severe back spasm Dr. Buckingham went out of his way to see him multiple times per day/week even after office hours until his back was healed. I don't know what we would have done without him. Doc is a true professional and an expert in his field.

Dr. Buck has taken care of me and my whole family. He has eliminated my pain and has helped me recover quicker from injuries. He has a great demeanor and the office staff is great! I highly recommend Buckingham Chiropractic to everyone!

Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises meant for correcting specific problems. Depending the matter of your concern, your chiropractor may give you a list of exercises to perform to reduce discomfort. The focus of therapeutic exercise is to regain flexibility, strength, and endurance related to specific physical problems. No matter what type of exercise is prescribed to remedy a patient's specific condition, the final goal of rehabilitation is to acquire a maximum level of physical fitness, without the use of more invasive methods.

If you know you will be standing for an extended period, make sure that you wear supportive shoes and make sure you know how to keep good posture. Good posture is the key to a healthy spine. Keep your chin up and your shoulders back. Keep both feet about shoulder-width apart. Make sure that you are getting up every 30 minutes to stretch, even if you just walk around for a few minutes. Next, be sure you are seated correctly. Make sure you have a chair that offers good lower back support. You also want your feet flat on the floor with your knees at a 90 degree angle.

Chiropractors are professionals who uncover underlying issues in personal injury accidents. Whether using a single spinal adjustment or a series of treatment, visiting a chiropractor is one of the best options to start the healing process. If you find yourself in a personal injury accident, schedule a consultation with a chiropractor, as you may have underlying issues that we can help diagnose and treat.

One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you're involved in a serious collision. Most people have one thing on their mind after a car accident--their car! However, it's important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow an auto injury, as chiropractors are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue. Chiropractors are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally.

Seeing a chiropractor is not only for back pain and neck pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to keep your body at its peak performance through nutrition, adjustment and overall wellness. In addition, chiropractic care has been known to help a wide range of conditions from fibromyalgia to diabetes. Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body.

I am a dependable Leader and Certified CCA Clinical Chiropractic Assistant who has spent the last two decades in the chiropractic sector as an Office Manager/Facility Administrator. Throughout my tenure, I have curated a vast knowledge-base, with billing, Eclipse software, insurance, and corporate training at the forefront. Passionate about chiropractic and its future, I have dedicated my life-long career to providing services to support chiropractic and chiropractors through office management, HIPAA compliance, documentation and education.
