East Boston Chiropractor, Dr. Matthew Mallen

Dr. Matthew Mallen

People told me I “must be crazy” when I first decided on chiropractic school. But the skeptics had no experience with chiropractic. Everyone who actually had been chiropractic patients gave me favorable accounts. It seemed such a good fit for the interests I had in bodybuilding and nutrition.

Dr. Mallen is a 1972 graduate of Boston Latin School and 1976 graduate of University of Massachusetts, Boston. Following his undergraduate studies he was accepted at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. During his four years at Palmer, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Palmer College Public Clinic. After graduating in 1982 Dr. Mallen returned to the Boston area to establish his practice.

Dr.Mallen lives in Revere with his wife Brenda and two sons, James and Jack. Brenda is a cyclist and veteran of the Pan-Mass Challenge an annual 190 mile ride to benefit the Jimmy Fund. The entire family are avid skiers.
