Dr. Dustin Pelloquin, D.C.Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Dustin Pelloquin has a rich history in the world of chiropractic care that began at a very young age. Experiencing the powerful healing effects of chiropractic for the first time at age 12 enables him to be a very empathetic doctor who can relate to the needs of each and every one of his patients on a personal and professional level.
Being involved in athletics brought many health issues to surface in Dr. Pelloquin's youth with the first problem being tennis elbow. His family took him to a local chiropractor and upon reviewing his health history it was noted that he had been experiencing frequent migraine headaches. The throwing arm was quickly and effectively treated enabling him to get back on the playing field, but he remained plagued by vicious debilitating headaches.
After fighting through the medical model for months and taking countless over-the-counter pain and headache medications, he re-visited the chiropractor and committed himself to getting rid of the headaches. The doctor found there to be a number of problematic areas in his spine, especially in the neck, that were contributing to tension in the spine and pressure on surrounding nerves. After a series of treatments including spinal manipulations, he became headache free and has not experienced such problems since. Dr. Pelloquin maintains that he owes much gratitude and thanks to his family chiropractor who was able to drastically improve his quality of life through chiropractic health and wellness treatment.
In an effort to give back, Dr. Pelloquin began studying the effects of chiropractic at an early age and began sending friends and family to his local chiropractor. This nourished his ever-growing passion for helping others, and he claims that passion to be the driving force behind the current success he has with his patients today.
