Meet Dr. John Kavanaugh

Dr. John KavanaughDr. John has been passionate about providing Midtown NYC community members with state-of-the-art treatment for over 25 years. At Kavanaugh Chiropractic we welcome family members of every age and occupation. We enthusiastically cater to the needs of each patient, from babies and young professionals to weekend warriors and those entering their golden years. We pride ourselves on a mind-body approach and feature a full medical team.

The Greatest Decision I Ever Made

Dr. John was a lacrosse player for 20 years. During his years of involvement in this full-contact sport, he suffered from chronic low back pain, neck and shoulder stiffness and a compromised immune system.

Once I began to receive chiropractic adjustments, though, my health improved dramatically. I made the decision to become a chiropractor; it was the best decision I’ve ever made.

At the time, Dr. John had already received a degree in business management. His love of chiropractic, however, compelled him to return to college for an additional six years to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Georgia.

I Love My Work

It’s doubtful that you’ll meet someone more enthused about his work than Dr. John. He treats his patients with love, compassion and kindness, and he has great certainty in his ability to help others.
His current specialty is cranial work, the area where the nervous system exerts the most control over the rest of the body. He is also accredited in many areas of advanced health education, including

  • Functional movement (obtained degree)
  • Pediatric chiropractic
  • Infertility
  • Sports injury (achieved certification)
  • Stress reduction through meditation

On a Personal Note

Dr. John is married and the father of four wonderful children. He and his family enjoy cycling and visiting local beaches to surf, barbecue and relax. Surfing is one of his passions, and in the past, he and his friends have traveled all over the world searching for that “perfect wave.”

Dr. John is also a perfect chiropractic patient himself, receiving adjustments on a regular basis to keep his health at an optimal level.

It’s amazing how simple it all is. If we each took just a few moments each day to dedicate to our health, we’d find that well-being and greatness would be our ultimate reward.

At Kavanaugh Chiropractic, we help people navigate through the stress of life to lead richer, more active lives. No matter what problems you’re dealing with, there’s a good possibility that we can help. Contact us today; you’ll be glad you did!
