Dr. Sugeily Davila was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. However, she lived most of her life in Humacao, Puerto Rico. She finished her undergraduate studies on December 2012 in General Biology. Just a few weeks after, she moved to Pasadena, Texas, to pursue her chiropractic degree. She completed a second bachelor’s degree in Human Biology, and obtained her doctoral degree on April 16, 2016, from Texas Chiropractic College. She fell in love with the state, the people, and the culture which prompted her to stay here permanently. Since then, for over 6 years she has shown passion and dedication to changing the health of the community by educating and providing top-quality chiropractic care. Dr. Davila is well-versed in the Diversified Manipulative Therapy technique, Sacro-occipital techniques, Thompson Drop technique and has Gonstead adjustment knowledge. She recently completed a Certified Chiropractic Pediatrics program. She has adjusted kids as old as two days, and adults as young as 97 years old. She firmly believes that “Regular adjustments are part of improving our health holistically, so I enjoy being part of every patient’s journey to a healthier lifestyle.”
Dr. Davila came to Texas with one goal in mind; to pursue her chiropractic career inspired by a particular event in her life that changed how she perceived healthcare. “Culturally, chiropractic care in my island was more of a luxury and not as widely sought after, as it is in this particular place and time,” she says. “I had a major knee injury when I was 18 years old, that resulted from playing basketball and practicing martial arts. After many unsuccessful orthopedic treatments, when other doctors had no other recommendation for treatment than surgery, my mom decided to seek alternative care. This introduced me to Chiropractic Medicine, and I fell in love since day one”. She also added, “I learned that pain is NOT a normal process, but we get used to it when we shouldn’t. My goal is to change that mentality: Pain is not normal, and we need to work towards having a better quality of life.”
In her free time, Dr. Davila enjoys writing and playing music. When she is not singing, playing guitar, or Puerto Rican “cuatro”; she enjoys DIY projects, as well as cooking and experimenting with new ingredients. She enjoys traveling with her family and friends and traveling back home to enjoy time at the beach. Dr. Davila says the one food she always keeps stocked in her refrigerator is cheese. Other than being a well-rounded doctor, and an entrepreneur, she enjoys spending time with her English Bulldog Bella, and her cats, mischievous Xena and antisocial Luna. She is fluent in both Spanish and English.
