“I believe that chiropractic care can impact
your whole family and your whole life.”
–Dr. Alisha Davis, Founder of Davis Family Chiropractic
It’s a bold statement, I know.
However, I’ve seen the results firsthand. As a practicing chiropractor since 1999, I’ve served thousands of patients and witnessed the life-changing effects of chiropractic care.
What I often tell people is that everyone has a spine and nervous system and can benefit from chiropractic care. Anytime there is stress on your nervous system, your body may not function properly.
For example, as a pregnant woman, you might have persistent lower back pain. As a newborn, you might struggle to latch or breastfeed. As a toddler, you might experience digestive issues that threaten proper nourishment.
Believe it or not, these issues are all related to your nervous system – and they can all improve with chiropractic care.
The team at Davis Family Chiropractic is here to make sure your family has the best care possible.

I followed in my father’s footsteps.
My dad is a chiropractor, so I grew up learning about (and loving) this profession. I remember all the times my dad would adjust me and share with me how to live a healthy lifestyle through chiropractic care. While in high school, I also spent summers working in his office and I got to see first-hand how his patients benefited from his expertise. Not surprisingly, this put me on a path to becoming a chiropractor too.
After receiving my undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of North Carolina, I attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia, where I received my doctorate degree in chiropractic care. Following graduation, I joined my sister in practice. Then, in the fall of 2012, I opened Davis Family Chiropractic right here in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Every day I get the opportunity to serve the wonderful people in our community, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Working with children is my calling.
My dream was always to work with children, so when I realized I could do both chiropractic care and specialize in pregnancy and pediatrics, I knew I’d found my calling. I’m so grateful to be doing what I love and to be one of only four chiropractors in the state with a Diplomate in Pediatrics and Pregnancy Care. (The program included 360 hours of continuing education in the care of children, pregnant women, and children with special needs.) My heart is especially full when parents say that their children look forward to visiting our office and are healthier when they come in for regular adjustments.
It’s all about family.
Family means everything to me, so it was only natural that I wanted to extend this sentiment to my practice. I designed Davis Family Chiropractic to feel like home; a place that both kids and adults enjoy.
Speaking of family, if I’m not at work, I’m probably spending time with my husband Marc and our two children, Hannah and Wyatt. You can bet this means lots of smiles, laughs, and stories. And just in case you’re wondering, doctors aren’t all business, all the time! Here are some more fun facts about me…
Favorite travel destination: The British Virgin Islands
Tea or Coffee: Sweet tea
Favorite TV Show: This is Us
Favorite Hobbies: Spending time at the lake, traveling, and going to football games
Favorite Motto: Choose to be happy
Favorite Scripture: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13
Most Embarrassing Moment: I am clumsy so I don’t think I could pick just one!
How my best friend would describe me: Compassionate, nurturing, caring
