Scoliosis is a condition where one’s spine has a sideways curvature, usually in the shape of an “S” or a “C.” Although mild forms typically are not too problematic, if gone untreated, the condition can worsen and interfere with one’s breathing, cause chronic back problems, and create noticeable physical changes. For instance, one may find unleveled shoulders, uneven hips, bulging ribs, and/or a shift of the waist and trunk to the side. While the cause is generally unknown, there are proven chiropractic treatments for scoliosis. As here, watch how Dr. Mehr treated Gabriel Gomez’ scoliosis. LEARN MORE

"After a month of treatment, my low back pain is 99% gone!!! I've gone through 4 prior chiropractors; none of them were able to treat my chronic back pain. Dr. Mehr is also a great doctor and nutritionist. Highly recommended!"
"If it was possible to give more than 5 Stars to Dr. Mehr I would. I had a chronic neck problem from a couple auto accidents in my younger years. I've have been going to Chiropractors for many years with not much improvement until I was very blessed to meet Dr. Mehr. He took over my retiring Chiropractor's patients. Dr. Mehr is very compassionate, professional and really cares about his patients well being. After my first adjustment by Dr. Mehr, I had immediate relieve. My chronic neck is totally gone. I get regular adjustment and am doing well. I highly recommend Dr. Mehr. His office staff is wonderful and helpful. Thank you Dr. Mehr, for helping me get my life back without daily neck pain."
"I first saw Dr. Mehr in November of 2008. I had had an extremely painful stiff neck for almost 3 weeks. I went to my primary care physician and they ordered an Xray. The results showed disc degeneration and my doctor recommended pain medication for treatment. Pain medication was not effective in relieving the pain, so I sought another approach and went to see Dr. Mehr. Dr. Mehr reviewed my Xrays, suggested an MRI and adjusted me on my first visit. The immediate relief I felt was unbelievable. My neck condition requires ongoing treatment and I look forward to my visits to Dr. Mehr. I highly recommend his skilled approach to treating spinal and skeleton alignment issues."
"I was in a car accident in March and my ankle got sprung pretty bad. I had whiplash along with a lot of pain. I heard Dr. Mehr give a workshop about the importance of chiropractic care and I made an appointment to see him even though I was skeptical and nervous. After about 2 months of treatment and education about chiropractic treatment I was very satisfied with his expertise and care. He has made me see Chiropractors in a whole new light. I am grateful for him and his team, they are so caring and attentive every time I come in. I will definitely would recommend everyone to get educated about the importance of chiropractic care. I will forever be grateful for what Dr. Mehr and his team of angels did for me!"
"Following an episode of severe lower back pain radiating into my right leg in November 2007, I was given an x-ray followed by an MRI which indicated mild degenerative disk disease, particularly at L-4-5 level. After many weeks of taking medication and having physical therapy, I still experienced some pain in my lower back and upper part of my right leg. With encouragement from my family to purse chiropractic treatment, I made an appointment with Dr. Mehr at Foothill Family Chiropractic and began treatment on April 2. I have continued that treatment to date. With chiropractic care plus daily exercises and considerable walking, I am no longer experiencing pain in my lower back and leg."
"Since this past June when I started chiropractic and massage treatments for my shoulder and lower back pain, I haven't need to take any pain medication. I've had this pain since I served in Vietnam over 40 years ago. I am able to stand up straighter.
Thank you and your staff."
"Before I went to see Dr. Mehr I had been in unbearable back pain. Walking and especially at the end of the day before I would go to bed. After all the treatments I had been through with the Dr my pain was significantly reduced. From a scale 1-10 it is definitely a 1 or a 2. I thank Foothill Family Chiropractic and Dr Mehr for all their treatments they put me through that have helped out tremendously."
