From the Indy Weekly, printed 2015
Dr. Chas Gaertner has been voted Best Chiropractor by Indy readers for the past 9 years. NC Chiropractic celebrated 20 years in business with a bold move to a new office in downtown Carrboro last April. The new location is between Weaver Street Market and the Carrboro Farmers’ Market. It’s an easy walk in town, or a quick one mile bike or bus ride from UNC or downtown Chapel Hill, and also has plenty of free parking.
Dr. Gaertner has convenient, flexible hours so that business people, students, university employees, and local residents can make lunch or evening appointments, and he offers quality health care without a hassle or obligation to commit to any series of treatments. Dr. Gaertner’s approach is unique in that he combines traditional chiropractic techniques with neuromuscular trigger point therapy. He appeals to, both, newcomers and experienced chiropractic patients who seek more personalized interaction in understanding their care and treatment plans. “From children to the elderly, with headaches, shoulder or leg pain, or injuries from work or auto accidents, everyone feels better with chiropractic.” Dr. Gaertner has become known for his practical treatment with pregnant women who seek a drugless approach for problems and general discomfort. Also, he is certified in the Webster Breech Protocol to aid in correcting a baby in breech position. “The most flattering compliment is the referrals from M.D.s, PTs, and midwives, as well as massage therapists and yoga instructors, a positive indication of the increased understanding of chiropractic benefits.” Dr. Gaertner attributes his success to simplicity, a theme in both his business and personal life. Unburdened by receptionist, staff, or complex processing, you get the attention of the doctor himself. His personal hand in every aspect of patient care, from scheduling to treatment, are what his patients have come to expect. Dr. Gaertner is easily available for patient emergencies, as he walks or bikes to and from work each day from his family’s modest home just a few blocks away. He enjoys an exceptionally happy life in Carrboro with his wife, Elaine, and two children, Greta and Van.
