Sullivan’s Chiropractic brings relief without the meds
“I love being able to take care of their problems and pain without medicine or surgeries,” said Dr. Ali Sullivan, owner of Sullivan’s Chiropractic. “Not only helping them with their problems but also educating them on their health too, whether it’s exercising or eating right.”
Sullivan, 27, has owned Sullivan’s Chiropractic, 290 Center Road, West Seneca, since May 2011. She gained a strong interest in the field after she visited her first chiropractor; Sullivan suffered from severe headaches and when the sessions helped her tremendously, she decided she wanted to help others too.
Dr. Sullivan graduated from SUNY Oswego where she received her bachelor’s in biology and then later earned her doctorate from New York Chiropractic College.
From there she did a year of clinical work in her school in Depew and she also worked out of her brother in law’s chiropractic office, gaining experience in business and client interaction. She is both a member of the International Chiropractic Association and is a certified chiropractor for the Webster Technique.
Although it is a bit nerve wrecking at first, Sullivan said you should never be afraid to pursue your dreams.
“Never be scared to open up a business, she said.” “The benefits outweigh the risks, you just have to be smart about it. You really have to do your research and put in the time and the work to be successful.”
Yet Sullivan did have a hard time starting out when the building her business resides in, went on fire.
“The beginning of this year the building had a massive fire so it was a big struggle to work through,” she said.
Water damage destroyed her office and caused the ceiling to collapse, leaving Sullivan to pick up the pieces.
“The floors and rugs were ruined. We were closed for like a month. The cleanup and repair for that is not something you go through on a regular basis.”
Although Sullivan was able to get through the hard times and make sure her business was stronger than ever. She now has a range of clients from big to small. Cliental consists of children, seniors, pregnant women and athletes.
“It’s definitely grown over the last year and a half,” said Sullivan. “It’s still growing but it’s definitely changed a lot too.”
The business does offer specials for first time patients, which includes everything from an examination, to spinal and postural analysis, and x-rays.
Their hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and then 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. They are also open Tuesdays 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
