    "Well Being is not a destination or achievement. It's far more than being free of symptoms and illness.

    Well Being is about a better way of life...about rising above the status quo lifestyle

    and apathy toward healthy living...establishing proactive healthy living changes

    to evolve your approach to and concept of health and health care and empower well being.

    Empower well being. Empower your evolution."

    - David W. Robinson, D.C. -


    Dr. Dave Robinson has been a chiropractor in Massachusetts for more than 26 years

    and a nationally certified personal trainer for over 20 years

  • Adjustments Matter!

    Empower Well Being

    Chiropractic is the science of locating and removing interference with the transmission or expression of nerve force in the human body, by the correction of misalignments of the bony joints of the vertebrae and pelvis. These misalignments of spinal vertebrae are called "subluxations".

    Chiropractic focuses on subluxations' and their interference to nervous system impulses, which cause interference to the body's ability to maintain proper functions, thereby reducing the potential for well being.

    Chiropractic is a natural, safe, non-invasive form for removing this interference with the transmission of nerve impulses, life, with the purpose and intention of assisting in the restoration and maintenance of the body's well being.

  • About Dave

    Chiropractor Since 1989

    Nationally Certified Personal Trainer Since 1996

    Dave, a native of New Bedford, received a B.S. in biology from Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater Massachusetts. During his second year at BSU, he began to research various health disciplines. Upon learning about and experiencing chiropractic, he knew it was exactly what he wanted to pursue.


    After undergraduate school, Dave enrolled in Life University School of Chiropractic in Marietta Georgia where he received a D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic) degree. His first year at Life University, he was introduced to the exercise and fitness profession, and it became his second passion.


    Since graduating chiropractic school, Dr. Dave has had private practices in New Bedford, Plymouth and Peabody. His practices in Plymouth and Peabody were designed as small, low volume, wellness focused practices. He has also been a staff chiropractor in a large practice in Boston.

    Seven years into private practice, Dave received national certification as a personal trainer from the Aerobics & Fitness Association of America in Sherman Oaks California, and a short time later took an opportunity to relocate to San Diego California to work as a personal trainer at Frog's Athletic Club along side some of the industry's top personal trainers and exercise instructors at the time.

    In addition, Dave has worked with private training clients and as a personal trainer at fitness facilities on the South Shore and South Coast of Massachusetts, for the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Training Council police cadet physical training program, and at the Newport County YMCA in Rhode Island.

    Since its opening in April 2014, he has been a staff member and personal trainer at the Dartmouth YMCA Healthy Living Center in South Dartmouth Massachusetts, a new boutique style fitness center.

    After 15 years practicing as a chiropractor and 9 years experience as a personal trainer, he put his professions aside and stepped up to assist in full time care-taking of a parent with dementia/Alzheimer's. Five years later, Dave returned to personal training, and a few years later began seeing a limited number of private patients as a chiropractor.


    At 56, Dave continues a 33 year long "staple" of twice monthly chiropractic adjustments, and daily exercise with a love for outdoor activities.
