Dr. Jacob Matrille
Our West Addison Chiropractor
Education: Palmer College of Chiropractic
Hometown: Oakland Township, Michigan
Anyone who meets Dr. Matrille’s appreciates his deeply-rooted desire to see them live their best lives, instead of just going through the motions. Whether it’s playing with their kids again, taking walks with family again or optimizing mood and energy again, he’s thrilled when patients are able to do things they thought they could no longer do. He lives for those post-treatment x-rays that show them the extent of their musculoskeletal improvement.
Dr. Matrille is grateful to have grown up in the quiet farming community of Oakland Township, Michigan surrounded by country roads, where he learned to appreciate nature, biology and the joys of hard work — his first job was carrying bales of hay for the farmer across the street. He also learned about the power of chiropractic care when it helped resolve his childhood asthma and get into shape for sports. What most impacted his decision to become a DC was witnessing how his mom conquered severe, chronic migraines to become a top Ironman triathlete who competes across the globe — pain free.
After completing a BS in psychology at Michigan State, he graduated cum laude with a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he developed a passion for making care accessible to all. During a mission trip to Madagascar he helped underserved communities — an experience he treasures, as he insists that chiropractic care should not be reserved for only the wealthy and insured.
To maintain his wellness he runs marathons and coaches beach and indoor volleyball, kickball, softball and ultimate Frisbee leagues. He also spends lots of time with his young daughter, as well as volunteers for Special Olympics, The Listening Ear Crises Center and various LGBT groups.
Dr. Matrille is also huge advocate for organ and tissue donation and has donated a kidney to a close friend. He truly wants to be the change he wishes to see in the world by starting with what you he do for the people close to him. He’s inspired by his favorite Malcolm X quote:” If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”
