Niccole Jefferlone, B.S., D.C.
Certified Graston Technique Provider
Certified SpiderTech Taping Technique
Certified Webster Technique Provider
Dr. Niccole was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. She was a three sport athlete in high school and played volleyball, basketball, and softball. When she was about 16 years old, she developed a shoulder injury from over-use, which led to neck and upper back complaints as well. She treated with many different specialists with no improvements, until she was treated by a chiropractor who was able to resolve all of her complaints. This is when she knew she wanted to become a chiropractor and to help other people. Furthermore, she knew she wanted to be able to treat the entire musculoskeletal system, including but not limited to the spine, shoulders, feet, joints, muscles, sports injuries, and so on.
From high school, she went to D’Youville College in Buffalo NY for her Chiropractic schooling. Throughout her education, she learned how chiropractic and additional soft tissue techniques could further help to treat sports injuries and the musculoskeletal system, in addition to treating migraines. Dr. Niccole had suffered from severe migraines her entire life, so she was very inspired by this. She became certified in many different techniques including the Graston Technique and others. Through her own treatment with these valuable techniques, her migraines have resolved. She has since continued to experience great pleasure in helping many patients resolve their migraines, spinal complaints, sports injuries, strained and torn muscles, and many other complaints.
Her passion comes from the desire to help people, and her ability to see the incredible benefits of chiropractic treatment first hand. She and Doctor Patrick Alf had worked together in the past, and knew that they shared a similar philosophy in how to treat patients as well as in their passionate beliefs in Chiropractic treatment. In 2013, she opened her business Complete Care Chiropractic and has been working here with Dr. Patrick Alf ever since.
As her practice continues to grow, her favorite part about her job is being able to help people and make a difference in their lives. Her passion for helping people is evident every day as she continues to be able to live her dream.
