Dr. Kenyon's father Gary introduced chiropractic to him at an early age. Gary's only relief from an old Army injury, which produced excruciating headaches and back pain, was Chiropractic treatment that included nutrition and exercise. This early introduction to Chiropractic helped form the foundation for Dr. Kenyon's Chiropractic philosophy: "Help the patient obtain physical fitness for life through Chiropractic with a well-rounded integrative approach including education."
Dr. Kenyon wants you to experience the same relief from pain that his father did and provide a lifetime of wellness that he gives his family.

Dr. Meyer became interested in chiropractic at the age of 13 after a basketball injury to his low back kept him off the court. He had visited a medical doctor first and was given anti-inflammatories and advised to rest with the expectation that he would be back on the court playing basketball in a short period of time. After a week, he was still in pain with no improvement, at which point he visited a chiropractor for the first time. Dr. Meyer had no idea what to expect and was examined and a treatment applied. After that first treatment, his low back pain was gone! Dr. Meyer's Chiropractic philosophy is: "Have a positive impact on everyone's life by empowering them to optimal health."
Dr. Meyer believes that he can help every person in some way whether it be from an adjustment, nutritional advice, exercise advice, lifestyle change advice, or muscle work. Dr. Meyer treats all kinds of patients from avid weekend warriors to Olympic athletes. He wants all of his patients to reach their goals and will do everything he can to help empower them, no matter how big or small their goals might seem.
