Dr. Alessandra Colon

Dr. Alessandra Colón has a deep compassion for those seeking improved health and wellness fueled by personal experience. At the age of 14, Dr. Colón was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. After doctors gave her a 25% chance to live, she underwent advanced chemotherapy and radiation leading her to remission. Surviving her greatest struggle powered her love of health and life.  “Looking back it dawned on me that I had gained so much more than growing my hair back,” she says, “beating cancer gave me the push to become more knowledgeable about the human body, nutrition, and natural prevention of disease.”

After graduating from The University of Arizona with a Bachelors of Science, Dr. Colón’s devotion led her to pursue her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Daytona, Florida.  Between 2010 and 2012 she traveled to the Grenadines, the Dominican Republic, and India offering free chiropractic care to over 4,000 people. Her commitment to promoting optimal health and well-being has been integral in freeing people from pain and increasing her patients’ whole body performance ever since.

Her journey did not end there, after spending years running marathons alongside her mother and brother, in the fight against cancer; she was nominated to campaign for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and was crowned the 2015 Woman of The Year. She also took home Palm Beach Illustrated Top Chiropractor 2018 and Best of Palm Beach 2020 and 2021.

Bringing chiropractic to the forefront on TLC newest show “Crack Addicts.” Intending to break the connotation surrounding the chiropractic profession and showcasing that it is not just about the “cracks,” when it comes to healing.

In her practice, Dr. Colón uses a “whole person approach.” This approach to wellness involves discovering the root causes of pathology or dysfunction, and making interventions and lifestyle adjustments that optimize one’s ability to function in day-to-day life. She looks to the spine when evaluating a patient’s entire body and treats accordingly, as she understands that complete health relies heavily on how body parts affect each other biomechanically. She says, “Don’t restrict your practice to the musculoskeletal; it’s much more than that. There is nothing better than allowing your body to heal itself.”
