  Meet Dr. Case  

A volleyball injury in high school coupled with a natural curiosity about science and biology led Dr. Cari Case to where she is today – a well-respected chiropractor in Apex, North Carolina.

Originally from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, Dr. Case received a Bachelor’s degree in molecular biology from Grove City College. She then went on to receive her Doctor of Chiropractic from the National College of Chiropractic in Chicago.

After four cold Illinois winters, Dr. Case was looking to set up roots somewhere warmer when she stumbled upon the friendly people and small-town charm of Apex. And this is where, in 2000, she opened her practice.

According to Dr. Case, the most rewarding part of being a chiropractor is getting people well, helping their bodies heal so they can do the things they want to do, and improving their quality of life. She takes pride in the fact that her practice has patients ranging in age from two weeks to 104 years.

After being diagnosed in 2009 with a significant autoimmune disease, Dr. Case turned to the world of Applied Kinesiology, Functional Nutrition, and Functional Neurology to successfully treat her condition.  Seeing how these treatments changed her own life and health, she started training under her Doctor and Mentor, Dr. Walter H. Schmitt, D.C., D.I.B.A.K., D.A.B.C.N.  Eventually, Dr. Case started practicing with Dr. Schmitt in Chapel Hill, NC by seeing his new patients.  Dr. Case was privileged to work with Dr. Schmitt until his death in 2021.

When not in the office, Dr. Case enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants with friends, antiquing, and crafting – particularly quilting, crocheting, and knitting.

Fun Fact: Dr. Case loves playing the handbells! While in college, she toured through the U.S. and the United Kingdom with a handbell choir.

Dr. Case maintains the following certifications:

  • Advanced Certified in the Quintessential Applications Protocol

  • Advanced Certified in Frequency Specific Microcurrent

  • Certified in Cox Flexion & Distraction Technique

  • Certified in Nimmo Trigger Point

  • Certified in Industrial Ergonomics

  • OSHA certified
