The Doctor

Dr. Jonathan Feeley, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Introduction

I want to take a quick minute to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about my journey in becoming a chiropractor. To start off, I was born and raised in the Cincinnati area, graduating from Deer Park High School before attending Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. It was while I was going to college that I was first introduced to chiropractic. I was well on my way to becoming a physical therapist at the time, when my father started having a lot of problems with migraines. Having been treated unsuccessfully with conventional medicine, my aunt convinced him to see a chiropractor she saw for her sinus headaches. I, of course, was extremely skeptical. So armed with a basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology as well as some bits of information I got from an episode of 60 Minutes, I decided to go along to play a little game of "stump the quack".

Once I was at his office, the first thing I noticed was the incredible level of enthusiasm. Having logged in some 200+ volunteer hours at various physical therapy clinics, nowhere had I seen that much energy. But it wasn't just with Dr. Korsen. All of his staff and every one of his patients shared the same positive attitude. And as he started explaining to me how chiropractic worked and how it allowed the body to simply heal itself, the light flashed on over my head. Here I was thinking I was going to expose some sort of sham but everything he said kept making too much sense. So much so that I spent the next week following him around his office to see these results first hand. Long story short, I was so impressed that after graduation I turned down physical therapy school to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. Isn't it strange how life comes full circle, now that people come to see me with their migraines. And to this day, of all the conditions I treat, getting rid of those headaches is still my favourite thing in the world.

After finishing chiropractic school, I was given a golden opportunity to accompany a group of other doctors to provide humanitarian care in Kathmandu, Nepal. In so many ways this was a trip of a lifetime. From a chiropractic standpoint, it allowed me the experience of treating hundreds of patients straight out of school. A rarity for a new doctor. But the greater lessons were taught by the spirit and the love shown us by the Nepali people. I'll never view distant corners of the globe in quit the same way.

Events are pretty straight forward after that. Most of which you can get the jist of by reading the much abridged version down below. I practiced in Rhode Island for a few years and then came back to the area to open Active Care Chiropractic. And that is where I can be found today. I want to thank you for taking the time to check out our website and congratulations for hanging in there through my whole life story. If I left you with any unanswered questions, feel free to call our office or send an email to Doc@DrFeeley.com . Thanks again.
