The Doctors

Dr. Matthew Roe, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Matthew Roe, a native of Orlando, is committed to helping people make the changes that will allow them to live the life they deserve. As an Upper Cervical chiropractor, Dr. Roe has had the privilege of witnessing people of all ages and with all different types of health complications drastically improve their quality of life through upper cervical specific chiropractic. In addition, Dr. Roe knows from first-hand experience the power that this type of care can have on one's life. Growing up, Dr. Roe battled chronic headaches, but doctors could never determine the cause. These headaches were often so severe, Dr. Roe had to stop all activity until they subsided. Unfortunately, relief was always temporary and the only solution offered was painkillers. The real solution was discovered when Dr. Roe received his first upper cervical correction at the Life University Chiropractic Clinic in Marietta, GA.

“My atlas, or first cervical vertebra at the top of my neck, was out of alignment and it was squeezing down on my brainstem. This caused interference with normal communication from my brain to the rest of my body, which was the source of my suffering over the last 20 years. As time went by I went from having severe headaches daily, to one per week, then one per month, and now I have my life back. This was the first time someone looked for the CAUSE of my problem rather than just treating my symptom.”

Dr. Roe attended Florida State University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. After his time at FSU, he attended the Life University College of Chiropractic and graduated Cum Laude with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. During his time at Life, Dr. Roe studied the Orthospinology procedure at the Humber Parkerson Clinic in Marietta, GA and interned at the Carringer Wellness Center in Toccoa, GA. Dr. Roe has had the honor to train with the best Upper Cervical specific doctors in the world and is excited to share his passion for true health by serving the Central Florida community.
