Dave Meyers, DC
Dr. Dave Meyers is a board-certified chiropractic physician licensed in California and Arizona for chiropractic, physical medicine procedures, and rehabilitation. He has worked with many specialists, owned two successful sports injury practices, and brings 20 years of diversified pain and sports rehabilitation experience to Arizona Pain Specialists. When young and playing sports, Dr. Meyers started his career path in physical therapy until he suffered a herniated disc. Therapy alone provided little relief and surgery loomed, which wasn¹t anything an athlete wanted to consider. When he diversified his medical care and added chiropractic therapy to remove pressure on the discs and nerves though, his pain diminished, his performance levels returned, and he avoided surgery. That combination of medical and chiropractic care established his strong foundational belief in the value of multi-disciplinary care; so he became a chiropractic doctor to help pass these benefits on to patients.
Dr. Meyers specializes in auto injuries and sports injuries; with particular interest in spinal discs, pinched nerves, complicated degenerative conditions, knee and shoulder injuries. He believes in a teamwork approach of specialists to do whatever is in a patient¹s best interest to achieve maximum results in the least amount of time. He is known for thorough diagnostics, attention to detail, and positive results. He utilizes many effective rehabilitation methods to relieve pain, aid decompression, and improve stabilization. These include numerous physiotherapy modalities, traction, myofascial therapy, joint mobilization techniques, exercise conditioning, and bracing. He aims to provide the most proficient care possible to help everyone reach their God given potential. Dr. Meyers also enjoys weight lifting and cross training, water skiing, and hiking the Arizona hills with his family.
Dr. Meyers received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer Chiropractic College West in Silicon Valley, after San Diego State University and California State University Hayward exercise physiology and kinesiology programs. He has completed the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) program of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians, the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) program of the National Strength & Conditioning Association, the Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) program of the Industrial Medical Council, the Independent Disability Evaluator (IDE) program of the International Chiropractic Association, and the X-ray Supervisor and Operator program of the Radiologic Health Branch.
