Dr. Thomas Mattheson joined Blackman Family Chiropractic in 2010, where he worked side by side with Dr. Michael Blackman. After working with Dr. Blackman for over 8 years, Dr. Mattheson purchased the practice Dr. Blackman, who continues to work in the building doing Clinical Applied Nutritional Counseling.
Dr. Mattheson was born and raised in Andover, MA. He attended the University of Syracuse in NY, where he received a B.S. in Biology Health Science.
In 1984 Tom's father had an accident, falling 18 feet off a ladder while working. He fractured his spine at multiple levels with severe disc herniations. He was told by orthopedic surgeons that surgery was inevitable and that 100% recovery was very unlikely at the time. Hoping to avoid surgery, he began seeing a chiropractor. After several months of chiropractic treatments and exercise to strengthen his spine, the pain had finally and he avoided surgery.
Dr. Mattheson's goal was to become a heart specialist after completing his degrees at Syracuse University. After his dad's experience, his dad asked him, 'Tom, why haven't you thought of becoming a chiropractor?' The idea changed his life forever, and Dr. Mattheson graduated close to home at the University of Bridgeport, College of Chiropractic in CT.
Dr. Mattheson has been practicing for 10 years now and continues to follow his true passion in life by healing and making a difference in the lives of others all around the seacoast community. Dr. Mattheson states, 'I look forward to seeing new and previous patients, continuing to play a role in everyone's health care. It truly is a pleasure and honor to continue to serve the Greater Dover Community after so many years now. We would like to welcome you all into Mattheson Family Chiropractic. Cheers to your health!'
