Dr. Matthew Mendillo was born on the mean streets of Providence, Rhode Island and then grew up on the not-so-mean streets of Cranston, RI. He attended the University of Rhode Island, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology/Pre-Med. He then attended the University of Bridgeport, College of Chiropractic, where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
While at UBCC, he worked extensively with the University’s NCAA Division II athletes, especially the Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams, and assisted in the development of their stretching and exercise protocols. He also worked with members of the Bridgeport Bluefish, an Independent Baseball Team, and was able to utilize chiropractic and Graston Technique to increase their productivity on the field.
He is fully certified in Graston Instrument Soft Tissue Mobilization and Pro-Adjuster Instrument Adjusting. He is also a fully certified EMT and has completed extensive post-doctorate education from the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies in functional Neurology and clinical Neuroscience.
After graduating from UBCC, Dr. Mendillo owned and operated a private wellness practice in East Greenwich, RI. In 2015, after practicing for nearly a decade in Rhode Island, he took his talents to New Jersey and, shortly thereafter, joined the staff at Advanced Wellness in Marlboro, where he continues to specialize in rehabilitation and neurological disorders. His primary goal as a chiropractic physician is help his patients return to health and stay healthy through regular treatments and proper education.
When he is not in the office or delivering educational lectures, he can be found trying to make people laugh in comedy clubs across the country, but usually in Manhattan. He is a certified firearms instructor with the National Rifle Association and holds a 4th-degree black belt in jiu-jitsu, which he has been teaching since 1999. He is the author of a soon-to-be-released medical book, which will come out whenever he finishes writing it. He also enjoys watching TV and movies, baseball, cooking, eating, and talking about all of those topics and more.
