Our Staff

Melissa Cheek

Clinic Director

Melissa joined Atlas Chiropractic in December of 2019.

Melissa’s chiropractic journey started in 1994, when she sought  help for serious injuries as a result of a car accident. She fully recovered from her injuries. Since then it has been her mission to share the natural health benefits of chiropractic with others.

She has been an integral part of the operations and management of  3 previous chiropractic clinics since 1994. Dr Nygaard is thrilled to have her as a team mate at Atlas Chiropractic.

Melissa handles all the logistics of patient care, while coordinating the patients clinical needs with Dr Nygaard.

She’s usually the first person you see when you arrive, and the last person you see when you leave. From your very first phone call, Melissa will work with you to ensure you understand exactly how we  help our new patients get better, from the flow of our office procedures, to insurance coverage, to financial questions. Melissa  takes pride in her ability to handle any question or concern that comes her way. If you have a question….. just ask !!!She does everything she can  to make your visits to the office to be both pleasant and life enhancing.

Melissa and her husband, Brad, were born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. They have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. In her free time she loves spending time with her family.


One-Eyed Welcome Committee

You’d think a beagle / golden retriever mix would be rather… energetic, but this sweet rescue is by nature quiet and calm. Jamaal greets everyone as they enter the office (unless he’s sleeping and doesn’t feel like getting up). And if you rub his belly, he’ll be your friend for life.

Restoring healthy nervous system function is dependent upon proper brain-body communication.
