Dr. Patrick Healy, DC, MS
Doctor of Chiropractic, Master of Sports Science & Rehabilitation
Dr. Patrick Healy felt a calling to natural healthcare early in life. He participated in many outdoor and physically demanding activities in his youth, and frequently found himself restricted by aches and pains or injuries. He made an effort to avoid taking painkillers, and sought alternative treatments when he needed them. After seriously injuring his back at the age of 16, and visiting multiple surgeons and specialists who recommended surgery, Dr. Healy decided that he needed to look elsewhere. Fearful of the long term consequences of having surgery at such a young age, Dr. Healy visited a Chiropractor who effectively alleviated his pain in less than a week, and helped him prevent recurrences through a rehabilitation program. Amazed, Dr. Healy began learning about Chiropractic as a profession, and preparing his education to help others in the same way.
Dr. Healy was born in Bangor, Maine, and raised in Holden. After graduating from John Bapst Memorial High School in 2003 where he was an accomplished athlete and president of the student body, he completed his degree in Biology at the University of Maine and went on to study Chiropractic at Logan College in St. Louis, Missouri. Drawn back to Maine by the people, scenery and his family, Dr. Healy chose to open Healy Chiropractic & Physical Therapy in Brewer to help his colleagues in the area provide the people of Maine with the highest quality healthcare. Dr. Healy currently lives in Hudson with his wife Aly.
In 2011, Dr. Healy completed his Master's degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation with an internship in the University of Maine Athletic Training and Sports Medicine department. Though sports injuries are a large part of his practice, Dr. Healy is well trained in Family Chiropractic Health and Wellness, and can advise all patients on the appropriate care for their conditions. He is also skilled in treating patients during pregnancy!
Healy Chiropractic is currently serving the community by providing healthcare and injury management to the athletes of Brewer High School and Chiropractic care to the University of Maine!
Dr. Healy is an active member of the Brewer Business and Community Alliance and Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce.
