The impetus for all of this work. After a bad fall at the age of 10 left him with chronic back and neck problem, Dr. Mersky was finally treated by a chiropractor who was able to resolve the pain that conventional medicine could not help him with. This injury led him on a path to help those in need and to continue to increase his education and share his own experience through chiropractic.
