A Chicagoland native, Dr. Matthew Strickland is thrilled to be serving patients as the associate chiropractor at Chiro One Wellness Centers of South Loop alongside Dr. Loyal Nelson. He is very passionate about patient care and helping those in pain get back to living their best lives.
Dr. Matt had his first experience with chiropractic after a shoulder injury. He tried months of physical therapy to help him recover, but after seeing little to no results, he made the choice to try chiropractic. Dr. Matt saw improvement in his shoulder pain almost immediately, and in two weeks, the pain was completely gone altogether. Growing up, he’d always known he wanted to help people and after this experience, Dr. Matt realized chiropractic was what he was meant to do.
After earning a bachelor’s in biology from Augustana College, Dr. Matt went on to earn his doctorate of chiropractic from the National University of Health Sciences. While in school, he was a member of both the Motion Palpitation Club and Sports Rehab Club.
In practice, it’s Dr. Matt’s mission to share chiropractic with as many as he can, helping patients return to the activities they love. His favorite part of being a chiropractor is seeing a patient’s face light up when their condition starts to improve.
In his free time, Dr. Matt loves exploring different neighborhoods of Chicago, running, working out, hiking and traveling! His favorite quote is from basketball player Jimmy V: “Never give up! Failure and rejection are only the first step to succeeding.”
