Meet Dr. Connor LaVallie

Chiropractor St. Charles,  Dr. Connor LaVallie and his wifeDr. Connor first found chiropractic at 17 years old when he started experiencing neck, elbow pain and breathing difficulties as a high school triathlete. He experienced complete relief of his symptoms and learned the value of chiropractic care as a regular practice. Seeing a chiropractor allowed him to keep going to the gym and achieve his goals. As a college football player, chiropractic helped him heal from numerous injuries, and regular chiropractic adjustments helped him excel in a career as a professional natural bodybuilder. “I realized the importance of taking a proactive approach to health and healing and was able to make dramatic changes in a short amount of time.” At the age of 23 years old, Dr. Connor was the youngest natural bodybuilder to receive professional status.

Intrigued by the Chiropractic Philosophy

Dr. Connor decided to make chiropractic his life’s purpose after attending a chiropractic philosophy lecture in Muskegon, MI. Natural bodybuilding competitor and friend Dr. Mike Morea elegantly described the body as a conscious, self- developing, self-maintaining, and self-healing system. Rather than treating the body from the outside-in with surgery and medication, chiropractic supports the body system from the inside-out. “The inside-out philosophy of chiropractic care made such intuitive sense to me.”

Education and Accreditations

Dr. Connor received his undergraduate education at Loyola University Chicago and graduated with honors in psychology and nutrition. He holds both a Doctorate of Chiropractic and Master of Science in Positive Psychology from Life University. Dr. Connor is a Certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise and holds his USA Powerlifting Club Coach (USAPL-CC) certification.

At Life University, Dr. Connor studied the Pierce Results System (PRS), a 21st- century chiropractic approach using digital motion X-ray, infrared thermography, and instrument-assisted adjusting. Dr. Connor was certified by the PRS Doctoral Board to practice the system, elected to the PRS Executive Board on campus, and taught his peers how to refine their skills for four years.

Dr. Connor is currently one of only about 25 chiropractors in the United States practicing PRS, and he is regularly involved in seminars, workshops, and symposiums around the country.

PRS is an effective approach for people of all ages, but Dr. Connor understands that children and pregnant women require additional specialized care. He is certified in the Webster Technique, and he is enrolled in the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) Certification Program.
