Meet Dr. Rodriguez

My Story

My name is Dr. Neshenie Rodriguez Arce, but everyone calls me Neshy. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic at Montclair Upper Cervical Chiropractic in West Orange, New Jersey. Ever since I was a little girl, I knew that I was passionate about healthcare and always dreamt of becoming a doctor. My journey started in 2015 when I decided to study medicine. A short while into the program, I realized that it was not my calling in life. After taking a few years to understand what I was passionate about, I found myself at what at the time I thought was going to be an informative dinner. Little did I know that the words of the guest speaker, the President of Life University, would propel me into the world of chiropractic and the beginning of what I what I had always dreamed about, helping people. While on this journey in chiropractic school, I was trying to figure out which chiropractic techniques resonated with me and what type of chiropractor I wanted to become. A friend told me that I should attend a club meeting that I might like called Blair Upper Cervical Technique. As I began attending the club, I realized that many of the topics covered at club meetings made sense to me and I began to see a new perspective within chiropractic. Thanks to the club, I can truly say that I found my purpose in chiropractic while fulfilling my dream of being able to help as many people as possible. After understanding the benefits of what upper cervical care can provide, I wanted to see if it would help with my tinnitus which I had been suffering from. Auspiciously, my first upper cervical adjustment was provided by Dr. Kevin Pecca (my future employer), and it was one of the best decisions that I could have made. As my tinnitus symptoms began to subside, I was convinced that I had found my true calling.
