Dr. Chillemi utilizes the most up to date techniques as well as conventional chiropractic care in treating his patients. Dr. Chillemi believes in practicing the combination of evidence based medicine with clinical experience that has worked for chiropractic physicians for years.

He has adopted and mastered cutting edge examination methodology and has developed a system of X-ray analysis to screen out potential risks. He doesn't simply tell you what's going on, he shows you in a clear, concise way that allows you to walk away empowered with the knowledge of knowing what your condition is and how to treat it.

Dr. Chillemi believes in total body health incorporating nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle modifications along with chiropractic care in treating patients. Nutrition is a hotly debated topic as there is an abundance of misinformation, false marketing, and overstated opinion that permeates from the media and the internet. It is Dr. Chillemi's goal to clear up any misinformation and help educate patients on the importance of nutrition and its effect on the body. The most important part of Dr. Chillemi's treatment is the educating of the patient about their condition, treatment, and outcome. In Dr. Chillemi's words, "An educated patient is the best patient as it gives them the understanding and tools to help themselves while allowing us to reach their goals of being pain-free and discharged from care".

Dr. Chillemi is a native of New Jersey and is proud to continue to reside in New Jersey today. He is caring and compassionate and is honored to have the opportunity to serve the community.

I have dedicated my life to educating, empowering, and helping my community through Chiropractic. Should you have further questions or comments, by no means hesitate contacting me directly. It would be my pleasure to serve you, and I look forward to meeting you personally! Dr. Chillemi

Dr. Denis Gallagher

dr denisAfter years of playing football in high school and college, my back was killing me. After nearly a year of physical therapy, neurologists, orthopedists, massage therapists, and a neurophysiotherapist, I was no better, and getting worse. I was 24 years old and couldn’t put on my own pants because of the extreme pain. I was popping pain medication like they were candy. I was desperate to find relief. At 25, it looked like a risky spinal fusion surgery was in my future. I was desperate.

A colleague of mine at Ortho McNeill Pharmaceutical, suggested going to their chiropractor. As a scientist I was a bit leery of chiropractic. I thought to myself, I’ve got nothing to lose. I was literally dragged to the office. To my surprise, Dr. J was the first doctor to scientifically explain why my problem happened and how to correct it. After six weeks of treatment I was nearly 100% better. I was impressed so much that I left my research scientist position at Ortho McNeill to pursue my Doctor of Chiropractic.

I attended the “Harvard” of Chiropractic Colleges, Palmer College Of Chiropractic, in Davenport, Iowa. Palmer is where chiropractic was founded in 1895. Before graduating I was a member of the Palmer Clinic Abroad Program and traveled to Vietnam to provide humanitarian chiropractic care and service to the people of Vietnam.

Today, I’m excited everyday to help people here at our Landing, NJ chiropractic office. I especially love to help patients who lost hope, like I did
