About Us

Boutique Care

We don’t rush patients in and out of our office. We take a lot of time with our patients and are committed to building long-term health and long-term relationships. Our new patient visit can take from one to four hours, depending on your specific situation. Ongoing visits are 15-20 minutes. Your care is tailored to your unique needs and goals.

Our practice is built on honesty and integrity, which begins the moment you walk through our doors. The first thing we communicate is that we can’t help everyone—we will go over your health history and conduct postural exams to determine whether your spine is misaligned or not, and if we can help you. If we believe we can help you, we’ll let you know. If we can’t, we’ll help point you in the right direction.

The Difference

Our Services

Get Started With Care

Our specialty is NUCCA chiropractic, extremely gentle and painless. There’s no twisting, cracking or popping.

As an alternative to surgery, patients may elect non-invasive spinal decompression therapy to gently relieve pressure.

Laser therapy is considered a highly effective tool to increase healing potential and decrease pain and inflammation.

Thermography let’s us know if there’s anything happening in your body that might indicate potential disease.

An Invitation to Health!

Our new patient special, An Invitation to Health, is a free consultation with Dr. Felix to determine if upper cervical work is a good fit for you.

The consultation and posture tests are free of charge, and there is no obligation to continue with care, regardless of our findings.

Atlas Spine - Mount Pleasant: Dr. Felix & Dr. Erica

Dr. Felix and Dr. Erica

are a team specializing in orthogonal upper cervical adjustments. Both graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic and are thrilled to be able to offer this unique type of care in the Charleston/Mount Pleasant area.

Our doctors focus on patient education, helping them understand the causes of pain and that our chiropractic care is not simply treatment for symptoms. Rather, we work to identify underlying conditions interfering with the nervous system and strive to relieve the system of that interference by unlocking patients’ inborn healing potential.

We want our patients to understand that health is a journey and a lifestyle. It doesn’t happen overnight—but it can happen. Our goal is to help you get back to the life you want to live, with no limits.


What Our Clients Say

Jill Nicholl
NUCCA has changed my life! After years of going to traditional chiropractors multiple times a week, PT, spine specialist and tons of different medications, I am finally pain-free! All thanks to NUCCA and DR. Felix! His technique is gentle, and effective. He is amazing!
Donna Netzley
I’ve been seeing Dr. Felix for about a year and a half. I have always had a top-notch experience from walking in the door, getting adjusted, resting, and leaving. I hate going out of alignment but I love going to Atlas to get adjusted. I highly recommend Dr. Felix and I’m sure Dr. Erica is just as skilled.
julia chen
Dr. Felix is an excellent physical therapist. He has been treating me for 2 years. I highly recommend him.
I waited about 3 months before I posted, because I've posted early in the past and got burned but the longer I've been Doctor Felix the better I've felt. I have a severe cervical and atlas instability in my neck, traditional chiropractors made it worse. When I came into treatment with Dr Felix, I had so many chronic migraines that I couldn't think straight, so much pain, and so many neurological issues that I thought I was literally dying. Since treatment started, just the feeling of having my head on my shoulders again has been amazing. I still get occipital migraines here and there but they don't last weeks on end anymore, usually a day or two at most. My thinking is more clear, my energy is much better and I don't have to take anti inflammatory meds anymore. I feel like I got my life back.
Michele Lewis
Stop living in pain! No more popping and twisting of ligaments, as in traditional chiropractic care. Via very precise, non-painful, movements, Atlas will align your vertebrae. In doing so, muscle tension, back, leg, and neck pain will be obliterated! Friendly, experienced, reliable health care. Thank you, Atlas Wellness- you've changed our lives-literally!
