Doctors You Can Trust

Dr. David E Martinez, D.C.


Webster Certified, ICPA Member

Dr. Martinez opened Lemmata Chiropractic in 2015 after five years of experience treating patients in big cities and small towns in Texas. While pursuing his degree and before graduation in 2009 from Parker College of Chiropractic, he was treating patients in Dallas. After graduation, he joined a multi-office practice in Houston as Associate Doctor. With the experience of treating patients in high stress – high pace cities, he felt it was time to gain more experience in a different setting. In 2011, he moved to the smaller city of San Angelo and put big city traffic in the rearview mirror. San Angelo provided different pace, different people and different experience in treating patients. Having joined the small city clinic as an Associate Doctor, his experience expanded from the individual to family care. From all ages and backgrounds, the children, parents to grandparents would come to the clinic. Many would travel from the neighboring towns based on word of mouth.

Dr. Martinez grew from these experiences but wanted to open his own clinic and provide the best care while reaching out to the community to serve them. Having met and married his beautiful wife in San Angelo, Dr. Martinez and Layna moved to Virginia in 2014 to open a chiropractic clinic of their own. This clinic would be a caring, listening, family friendly and while providing a service to the Hampton community, it would also reach out and support the community as well.

Dr. Martinez strongly advocates for the natural birthing process, having experienced it firsthand with the arrival of his two lovely daughters, both born at home under the guidance of skilled midwives and doulas. He is passionate about creating a great place where everyone can get the help they need now and for the rest of their lives. He uses multiple techniques to help each individual person; he can often be heard telling people how proud he is of them because of how well they have done. As a published author on the topic of concussions, he has real knowledge of the dangers of traumatic brain injury and concussion in the general population, athletes and the military. His literature review, “Concussion: The Misunderstood Injury” was published in the Journal of the American Chiropractic Association in September 2011. He also often works closely with the Community Medical Foundation for Patient Safety. Dr. Martinez is board certified in both Virginia and Texas; he holds the degrees of Doctor of Chiropractic, Bachelor of Science – Health and Wellness, and Bachelor of Science – Anatomy.
