Stephen Dohoney 

Managing pain is Stephen Dohoney's calling, along with helping others


NASHUA — Whether it is helping people manage pain or helping those less fortunate, Dr. Stephen Dohoney has been described as an exemplary citizen, selfless volunteer and role model. 


Dohoney, 37, of Nashua, is the owner of The Pain Relief Center in Nashua. 


Dohoney is a Doctor of Chiropractic, a certified fitness trainer and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management. Aside from helping thousands of patients manage their pain, he is also an active member and volunteer for numerous charity and professional organizations. 


"I have particular admiration for successful people who use their position to help others and make the community and world a better place for others to live in," said Dohoney, who follows that motto throughout his daily life.

Dohoney is a member of the Nashua Lions Club, Nashua Rotary West, Elks Lodge, Rising Sun Masonic Lodge, First Church of Nashua and helps with the Meals on Wheels program in southern New Hampshire. 


Dohoney most admires people in his life who have overcome major obstacles and setbacks, or started from nothing and achieved great success. 


He works tirelessly to help those less fortunate better their lives and create opportunities to help them thrive, according to April Pelletier, who works for Dohoney. 


"Through the Pain Relief Center, Dr. Dohoney offers monthly marketing promotions that annually raise up to thousands of dollars for organizations and charities such as the American Heart Association, the New Hampshire Food Bank, Marguerite's Place, the Nashua Humane Society, the United States Armed Forces, the American Red Cross and various disaster relief efforts as they arise, matching the monetary and item donations with the funds from his own pocket," said Pelletier. "He is a role model to the people in our community, and an inspiration to all of his patients." 


Dohoney was instrumental in creating the Run For Your Ribs charity race for the Nashua Rotary West Rock 'N Ribfest event, which has raised significant money for numerous nonprofit groups in Nashua. He is now working on a motorcycle charity ride from Laconia to the Ribfest event in Merrimack as another fundraiser for the community. "I feed off the energy of positive and enthusiastic people and groups that do constructive community projects," he said.


The biggest challenge facing the Granite State, according to Dohoney, is the aging population of residents. 


"I feel the challenge is and has been attracting the right young people to New Hampshire who embrace the values and traditions that make this state so magnificent," he said. 


Outside of the office and his volunteer duties, Dohoney enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, reading, exercising and watching television shows that keep his mind active.
