Dr. Bill received his bachelors of science in Kinesiology (the study of human movement) at the University of Colorado. It was there that Dr. Bill began his pre-chiropractic education where he studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses. Then he and his wife, Dr. Shelly, attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St Louis, MO.
During their four years at Logan, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, x-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the ogan College Outpatient Clinic. While a student, Dr. Bill Trevens served as the President of the highly regarded professional International Fraternity of Straight Chiropractic, Delta Sigma Chi. He also served as Vice President of the Student International Chiropractic Association and was able to utilize his vast knowledge as a teaching assistant in the anatomy lab.
While Dr. Shelly was finishing her last year in chiropractic school, Dr. Bill went on a mission trip to Costa Rica assisting the prestigious Dr. Shawn Dill in the very beginning stages his endeavor to open chiropractic upper cervical clinics in various locations around the country. The clinics would soon grow to become what was estimated as some of the largest Upper Cervical Chiropractic Clinics in the world. Dr. Shawn Dill moved back to the states after some time and started The Specific Chiropractic Center group. After seeing the incredible power of many doctors working together to grow awareness of Specific Chiropractic, Dr. Bill and Dr. Shelly had no doubt that after their 19 years in practice they should join this amazing group of doctors and help support their vision. That is when The Specific Chiropractic Center of Boston was born!
Dr. Bill and Dr. Shelly have been blessed to have the opportunity to serve on several mission trips over their decades of chiropractic service to countries such as Belize, El Salvador and Nicaragua where they had the joy of providing upper cervical care to thousands of people. Prior to receiving their doctorates in chiropractic in 1996 and 1997, Drs. Bill and Shelly studied the post-graduate level work of the Upper Cervical procedure in San Francisco with the IUCCA whose training resulted in many published research on conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Tourette’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, headaches, asthma, seizures, vertigo and the amazing results that were attained with the Upper Cervical procedure. Drs. Bill and Shelly have received formal training in Upper Cervical Specific from the Kale Network and the International Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association, having received certification status from both organizations.
Dr. Bill and Dr. Shelly decided to move their family back to the Boston area (his hometown) and open their office in 1997. The greatest joy Dr. Bill and Dr. Shelly have found in their practice in Watertown was the way people’s lives were improving. “To help people regain their health and well being, live without chronic health conditions and get back to the activities that bring them happiness and fulfillment is what this work is all about.”
