Dr. Matthew Schmid’s father had severe lower back problems. He tried most of the traditional medical approaches but the only thing that helped him was chiropractic care. Seeing the changes in his father inspired Dr. Schmid to earn his doctor of chiropractic degree from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Schmid is also a certified chiropractic sports physician, a certified chiropractic rehabilitation doctor and a fellow of the American Society of Acupuncture. He takes many hours of continuing-education courses every year, so he continues to provide his patients with the latest, most effective treatments possible. He educates his patients and encourages their involvement throughout their treatment. One thing he’s learned in all his years of practice is that lasting progress occurs when he’s working as his patients’ partner, listening to them and helping them achieve their goals.
Dr. Schmid thoroughly enjoys seeing the changes in his patients after treatment – some of the same changes he saw in his father – the ability to live a more active life, without pain and without surgery. Call Dr. Schmid today!
