Meet the Doctor

A New Life Chiropractic welcomes you and your family! Our practice was founded by Dr. Marcus J. Firillo and his wife, Lillian. Dr. Firillo has been serving the Lakewood and Denver metro area since 1989. Since the start of the practice, our approach to chiropractic care has been holistic and patient-focused. We pride ourselves in providing a safe and positive atmosphere for our patients. Our bilingual staff is willing and able to help you with any questions you may have about chiropractic care and the treatment process.


Dr. Firillo has had exceptional results treating automobile accident injuries, herniated discs, stenosis and scoliosis. He has also had great results treating rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel, headaches, and TMJ, among other conditions. During his time at National College of Chiropractic, Dr. Firillo served as a teaching assistant in the anatomy laboratory, which enhanced his diagnostic ability. Upon graduating, Dr. Firillo received the Award for Special Excellence in Anatomy. In addition to chiropractic care, Dr. Firillo offers acupuncture, nutritional counseling, supplements, therapeutic exercise and stretches. X-rays are provided in house for a reasonable fee. Dr. Firillo will review your x-rays with you during your exam to make sure you understand your condition and the proposed treatment plan. Patients are urged to take on an active role in their healing and to work with the chiropractor as a team to ensure optimal results.


Dr. Firillo received additional training and is certified in the Cox Method. The Cox Method is a spinal manipulation technique that relieves back pain. The method uses flexion distraction and decompression to acheive relief. This specialized technique is highly effective and has helped many patients avoid surgery for herniated discs.
