  • Dr. Jessica Pagan

    “I was born in a sports household! One of the reasons I decided to go to Chiropractic school was because I have always been an “outside of the box” thinker & attending med school was too along the beaten path for me. While deciding what to do with my life, I discovered Chiropractic. I was already an Athletic Trainer & Personal Trainer at the time, so I said why not. Upon starting Chiropractic school, all my previous studies evolved together with the education I was now receiving. I have always loved treating athletes, helping them prevent and rehab injuries, perform better. Seeing them evolve throughout care, it is one of the most rewarding feelings you can have. We get to physically help a person to get in tune with their bodies, help them create that muscle mind connection and improve their body function for the future.”

    Dr. Jess has worked with athletes since 2005 in her home country, Puerto Rico, where she was involved with training & conditioning of a Double A baseball, minor league volleyball & the National Puerto Rico Powerlifting team. As a personal trainer, she oversaw creating healthy lifestyles for the general population and was also training beauty queens.

    - Graduated Magna Cum Laude from UPR in Ponce 2006

    - Graduated Cum Laude from New York Chiropractic College (now known as Northeast College of Health Sciences) 2014
