Dr. Dennis M. Coakley
Chiropractor & Licensed Acupuncturist

About Dr. Dennis M. Coakley, D.C., Lic. Ac., Certified A.R.T.®

Dennis M. Coakley was out of work for ten months after a serious lower back injury; he was only twenty-five. "It's devastating being that young and not knowing if you'll be able to work again," Dr. Coakley recalls. A friend finally suggested he go to a chiropractor. "He gave me my life back." But as Coakley was leaving the doctor's office one day, his future mentor surprised him by saying, "You know, you could do this."

Spurred on by this challenge, Coakley eventually returned to school, earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, MO, and has been a practicing chiropractor in Medway, MA since 1984.

Dr. Coakley has never forgotten how it felt to be debilitated when he was so young. This experience has been a driving force in his determination to offer compassionate, skilled support to people who want to get better. After working on a chiropractic patient who found trigger point therapy exceedingly painful, Dr. Coakley resolved to seek out and learn additional methods with which he could help his patients. A rigorous period of training followed at the New England School of Acupuncture, from which he earned his Masters of Acupuncture degree in 2005.

Dr. Coakley's patients range from young children to the elderly. Many of his patients are active athletes. An athlete himself, Dr. Coakley has been active his entire life, participating in rock-climbing, and white-water rafting, as well as other sports. Folk dancing, singing, Celtic knotwork and reading are among his other passions. He has provided Active Release Techniques® (A.R.T.®) treatments to Ironman® participants at the Lake Placid, NY Ironman® triathlon. Currently training and racing as a tri-athlete, he dreams of one day entering the Ironman® triathlon at Kona, Hawaii.

Dr. Coakley resides in Medway, MA with his wife and children.
