Meet the Chiropractor

Dr. SheehanDr. Debra Sheehan has been the sole owner/practitioner of Island Chiropractic for over 19 years.  She serves Middletown, Newport, Portsmouth and surrounding communities.

Dr. Sheehan was born and raised in Massachusetts (Boston area) before attending Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon.  For over 19 years, Dr. Sheehan has lived on Aquidneck Island.  She is the proud mother of  two beautiful children.  The charm and close knit community is what made Dr. Sheehan decide to live and practice on Aquidneck Island. 

Dr. Sheehan uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. She takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Sheehan will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs.
