Dr. Mertes Delivers Back Pain Relief

Chiropractic care is the perfect healing choice.  Aligning your spine eliminates back pain and other issues caused by a variety of reasons such as:

  • Auto accident injuries
  • Degenerating discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Overuse injuries
  • Poor posture
  • Sciatica
  • Slips and falls
  • Spinal abnormalities
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Weight gain
  • Work-related injuries

Dr. Mertes examines your spine and x-rays for a better understanding of your spine’s health. He then sets up a care plan to eliminate your discomfort. Your care plan may include a combination of the following services:

  • Chiropractic adjustments – a gentle positioning of your vertebrae ease your upper and lower back pain. Dr. Mertes removes pressure off the nerves and discs so your body begins to heal and you are pain-free.
  • Orthotics – if your lower back pain is caused by an issue in your feet, we may recommend orthotics to restore muscular balance.
  • Metabolic/Nutrition – our Weight Loss, Trust Your Gut, and Contour Light programs support your weight loss through exercise and healthy eating.
