Jerrilyn Sullivan, D.C.
My mission is to help as many people get out of pain so they can start living again. Over the years, I have grown frustrated with our ‘sick-care’ system, which has been focused on reducing symptoms with medications while never addressing the problem.
This is no different than a doctor telling a patient to take painkillers for foot pain caused by a pebble in their shoe when physically removing the pebble is the obvious solution.
Today, most people go for a quick fix with Aleve, Ibuprofen, painkillers, and cortisone shots. When those quit working, they are told to get surgery. This is no different from the pebble in the shoe earlier. Many surgeries could be avoided if the cause of the pain was managed earlier. We can help so many patients because of the new, cutting-edge treatments and other types of providers I work with to treat complex cases.
My passion for treating pain started due to my life experience as a chronic headache sufferer. I had daily headaches and often would have to cancel everything and lay down in a dark room to recover. Everything changed after someone suggested that I see a chiropractor for my headaches.
I thought they only treated lower back pain. Still, after suffering for years with these debilitating headaches where my doctor would only prescribe pain medication, I figured I would try it. It turned out that I had a severely pinched nerve in my neck that was causing my headaches. When this pressure was relieved, my headaches disappeared, and so did the pain in my hip.
At that point, I knew this was the career path for me. I worked as a research assistant for autoimmune diseases but quickly changed everything and applied to Sherman College of Chiropractic. Chiropractic saved Dr. Sullivan’s life, but she wanted to create the ultimate clinic for treating all types of pain. That is when she teamed up with medical and physical therapy providers so they could help more patients suffering from chronic pain.
Over the years, she has added new technology to eliminate pain. She finds that most of her patients improve with these new therapies when combined with chiropractic and physical therapy. However, she often refers to a medical colleague who offers joint rejuvenation therapy for those who have passed the point of no return. This is a new type of therapy available in the USA but has been around for years in other countries.
When Dr. Sullivan isn’t in the office helping patients eliminate their chronic so they can live their lives again, she spends time with her family. When the weather permits, she loves to be outside. She has a large family with 9 adult children and their dog Kegan. Their kids have been getting adjusted since birth and her practice will soon be adding one of her sons as a practicing partner. Her family is multi-generation New Englanders, and they are die-hard fans of the Patriots, Red Sox, and Celtics.
As a clinician, I know that mastery is something that none of us achieve but strive to keep learning. I have become proficient in my different chiropractic and physiotherapy rehabilitative techniques because it’s a passion of mine. I also am very aware of what other treatments exist for my patients. Therefore, I know when to make appropriate referrals to those specialists.
Needless to say, I will be looking forward to seeing you soon,
Dr. Sullivan D.C.
