Meet Dr. Dennis Lavelle

Becoming a Chiropractor in Briarcliff Manor

Briarcliff Manor Chiropractor Dr Dennis Lavelle

Dr. Dennis Lavelle

“I think back and I have to smile, I did not know what to expect.” remembers Dr. Dennis Lavelle. “I was a twelve year old waiting nervously to meet my mother’s chiropractor.

“A few weeks prior to this office visit I was involved in a severe car accident and I suffered a concussion and neck trauma. My mother brought me to the chiropractor to get my spine and nervous system examined. The experience was amazing! I will never forget that first adjustment it was energizing, it felt great. That was the moment I decided to become a chiropractor.”

A Chiropractic Education

Dr. Lavelle began his pre-chiropractic education at Mercy College where he obtained his Bachelors of Science in Biology. While at Mercy he studied the basic sciences such as organic chemistry, physics, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses.

After completing his study there, he was accepted at New York Chiropractic College. During his four years at N.Y.C.C., courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, neurology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care at the Levittown Chiropractic Health Center. Dr. Lavelle Graduated from N.Y.C.C. Cum Laude in 1999.

How We are Different

“We love skeptics,” smiles Dr. Lavelle, “I still remember my first chiropractic experience and the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So I make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate. Patients appreciate that.”

Outside of the Clinic

Dr. Lavelle is married to Melanie and they have four wonderful children. ” We like to live an active lifestyle, we go on walks, kayak, swim, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors.”

“I have not taken an antibiotic in nineteen years. I know this is a direct result from the education that my chiropractor and N.Y.C.C. gave me. My family and I get adjusted on a weekly basis to stay well.” We live the chiropractic lifestyle and because of this my family and I have benefited greatly.” (If that sounds interesting, be sure to ask Dr. Lavelle to explain!)
