Chiropractor Matt Meehan, D.C.
Influenced by the Team Doctor

Chiropractor Medina OH Matt Meehan Dr. Meehan knew from a young age that he wanted a job that involved helping others. He became a chiropractic patient in high school when he played football and basketball. ‘’Our team doctor was a chiropractor. He helped our whole team function better and get over injuries quicker.” Dr. Meehan knew chiropractic would be a great fit for what he wanted to do.

Healing Hands

Our society focuses on taking pills to get well, but there is no pill for wellness.

Dr. Meehan attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2010. While there, Dr. Meehan learned even more about the anatomy and physiology of the human body. He was fascinated to learn about the changes he could make in a patient’s life simply by using his hands. “Our society focuses on taking pills to be well, but there is no pill for wellness.”

Outside of the Office

When he’s not seeing patients, Dr. Meehan can be found spending time with his girlfriend and family. He enjoys being outdoors, especially by the ocean. Surfing and kayaking are his favorite water sports. Dr. Meehan also plays guitar in a band.

“I welcome the opportunity to show you all chiropractic can do, without resorting to drugs or surgery. Call today to schedule an appointment.”

Troy Naftzger - PA-C
Helping Others Find Health

Medina OH Troy Naftzger Orthopedic Physician Assistant “I became a medic in the military right after high school. It was through my work as a medic that I was introduced to the profession of physician’s assistant. I found it interesting to learn that you didn’t need to become a medical doctor to impact peoples’ health and help to improve their lives. I knew this would be the career path for me.”

Troy spent ten years working for one of the nation’s most renowned and respected reconstructive shoulder surgeons at Ohio State. After years of working in orthopedic and reconstructive surgery, he decided it was time for a change.

“Too many people are having surgery and seeing serious complications afterwards. I feel surgery should be the last option, not the first.” Troy started looking around for other more natural avenues that were true to the rehabilitative principles he learned during his residency.

Finding and Correcting Problems

“I saw the way chiropractors treat the cause of the problem. The corrective care model of chiropractic fit my beliefs perfectly.”

Troy has been working with chiropractors and other health care professionals for several years. Through this, he’s learned that chiropractors don’t just treat pain. Our main focus at Advanced Spine Joint & Wellness is on your health and your body’s function instead of just managing your symptoms.

Family and Faith Come First

Troy considers himself very family and faith-oriented. He spends a lot of time with his wife and kids and is also an ordained minister. He likes to farm and fish and is a self-proclaimed hillbilly! He enjoys our local and national parks, especially Boston Mills Brandywine. He likes to get his kids outside and moving and is teaching them how to snowboard.

Troy is a basketball coach for the Christian organization Upwards. Through this, he teaches kids how to find faith and what that means for them. Community outreach is an important part of Troy’s life.

I welcome the opportunity to show you the many solutions we can offer to reach your health goals. Call our office today. (330) 721-6504
