Hi, my name is Matthew Westrich. I have been a doctor of Chiropractic for 12 years now and I can’t think of anything I would rather do. From the time anyone ever asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I always said I want to be a Chiropractor. Today I get to live my dream and help thousands of people regain their health and life through a hands on, drug-less and surgery free health profession.
I was influenced at a very early age by a Chiropractor that was treating my mom for chronic headaches and TMJ. I remember going with my mom when I was still in preschool and seeing how my mom responded to her regular treatments. I could see it made a difference in her life and I could feel the difference in mine when I got adjusted too. I think it was seeing my mom being help and wanting to help other in the same way that made me want to be a Chiropractor.
Life was not always easy for me. I grew up with a learning disability from kindergarten till 9th grade and I struggled in English, math and science. I worked hard and managed a “B” average in high school and throughout college. In high school I also wrestled and played football and on the weekends I managed a small lawn business.
I graduated from Miami Palmetto Senior High in 1997 and then went to Miami Dade Community College for my Associate degree. I graduated from Florida State University with a bachelors in biology and a minor in Chemistry in 2002. I then went on to Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas Texas where I became a doctor of Chiropractic in 2005.
Before graduating Chiropractic College I worked abroad in Mexico City treating patients to help out at a new Chiropractic school for eleven weeks. It was a great learning experience and a lot of fun. Since graduating I have worked in a couple different locations of south Florida with a couple different doctors. I am always eager to learn when it comes to helping people. Over the years I have been able to help thousands of people in my home town and they have helped me fulfill my dreams.. In March of 2010 I got married to my amazing wife Julie. We have two wonderful kids Isaac and Addy and hopefully one of them will grow up to be a chiropractor. Finally, in May of 2018, I have opened my own Chiropractic office MNJ Chiropractic Clinic in the heart of Palmetto Bay. I love being in my office and I hope you do too. I can’t wait to meet you. Please call and come on in. (786) 429-1899.
