Merolla Chiropractic was started in New Bedford, MA in 1964 by Dr. Michele Merolla (the father of Dr. Alexandra “Lexi” Merolla Corbin). Starting from a single location, Dr. Merolla expanded his chiropractic clinic to offices in: Swansea, Somerset, Seekonk, New Bedford, Sandwich, Taunton, Westport, Attleboro, Fall River, Wareham, & Fairhaven. The Merolla Chiropractic clinics served these communities for over 40 years and treated thousands of patients. Dr. Lexi knew from an early age that she wanted to be a chiropractor. After graduating Fairhaven HS with honors, she traveled down to sunny Florida and began studying at the University of Miami. Within three years, Dr. Lexi graduated with honors and continued on to chiropractic college at Palmer College of Chiropractic. Dr. Lexi stayed in Florida after graduation and began to build a life with her fiancé, Dr. Kyle Corbin, in Boca Raton.
Both doctors practiced chiropractic and holistic care for 6 years in South Florida. In 2015, their son Harrison was born and Dr. Kyle and Dr. Lexi started thinking of having their own practice. Dr. Lexi’s father always threw the idea out to come back up to New England. In the Spring of 2016 they made the decision to pack the family up and bring Merolla Chiropractic back to Seekonk. The location seemed perfect because of the wonderful community and the proximity to Providence, a much larger city. The docs are also foodies and love that Providence has a lot of excellent restaurants to choose from, and also has a small family-friendly feel.
The Corbin’s look forward to serving the Seekonk and greater Seekonk communities for many years to come. At Merolla Chiropractic, we take a patient-first approach to healthcare. We are different than most facilities in many ways. Both Drs. Kyle and Lexi have worked in busy multidisciplinary offices with doctors and nurses of various specialties. We excel at giving you an accurate assessment in a timely fashion, and creating a custom care plan that works for you. We see Seekonk, MA as a premiere location to live and raise a family. It is our pleasure to share with you the gift of drug-free healthcare.
