About Dr. Nicole Dougherty

Dr. Nicole Dougherty was born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida. She graduated from Daytona State College with her Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Business Management, then went on to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida, where she graduated in 2017. While at Palmer, she was an active member of the Palmer Sports Council, and volunteered her time at various sporting events and Palmer Outreach Clinics in her community.

Dr. Dougherty became interested in being a chiropractor when she was a teenager. While she was in high school, she was very active in different sports and had severe headaches almost every day. The only relief that she found was through chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic helped her not only live an active and pain free lifestyle, but also, helped her concentrate and feel better overall. Now, Dr. Dougherty is dedicated to serve and help her patients feel better and perform at their very best, so they can continue to do what they love.

After graduating from Palmer, she left home in Florida and has been thoroughly enjoying the beautiful mountains and the great outdoors in Virginia ever since. Dr. Dougherty enjoys caring for athletes and patients of all ages by helping them to improve their quality of life through great patient-centered care and healthy lifestyle adaptations. When she’s not caring for patients in the office, she enjoys hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, doing CrossFit, reading, and walking her dog.

Dr. Dougherty practices in The New River Valley.
