Our Mission is Simple: To Help Your Body to Heal Itself
When Dr. Matthew Monson established Hawkeye Chiropractic, it was the realization of a life-long dream to help people with their pain and suffering. Our Arlington Heights-based office focuses on treating patients using the most natural and gentle methods. By means of modern chiropractic techniques we promote the body’s natural healing abilities to correct the source of the pain rather than just treating symptoms.
About Dr. Matthew Monson
Dr. Matt’s love for helping people led him to the study of chiropractic. In fact, when growing up he experienced the discomfort of family members who suffered from lower back pain and sciatica. While in high school and college (Yes, he is a University of Iowa “Hawkeye”) he became increasingly fascinated by natural healing methods of treating pain. He began to study how the spine and nervous system worked, which led him to further his education to become a doctor.
In 2008, “Dr. Matt” completed his training at Palmer College of Chiropractic, one of the world’s most respected schools of chiropractic. After graduation, he treated patients at one of the Midwest’s busiest chiropractic clinics in Rockford, Illinois. However, after more than two years in the busy setting, he realized he wanted to establish a practice with a much smaller town feeling where he could develop closer relationships with all of his patients. Now he helps his patients in ways that he wishes someone could have helped his family when he was young.
Dr. Matt and “Giving Back”
Dr. Monson believes that we all have an obligation to “give back” to our community in any way we are able. This giving has influenced many of the aspects of his life.

- Dr. Monson also ran in three marathons to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
