Dr Meet Patel, DC
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Meet Patel graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport IA. Beside spinal adjustments, Dr. Patel also has studied and educated others extensively on all *7 Extremities* (TMJ, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Hips, Knees and Ankles) and the most common Bio-mechanical dysfunction in these areas which are researched by General Orthopedic Surgery and Journal of Hand and Foot Surgery as well as many others Journals. By using Specific Manipulation techniques for the extremities, the mal-functioning joints can be corrected which results in faster and longer lasting results for his patients. Although poor spinal alignment and function is proven to cause improper body mechanics and induce nerve pressure, proper alignment of the joints in the extremities is a large part of overall health. There are *206 bones* in your body and* 33 bones* in your spine, which leaves* 173 reasons* why just one small misalignment of one of the joints in the extremities can lead to myriad of health problems and areas of discomfort that will only increase if they go untreated. Dr. Patel’s main focus is patient’s outcomes.
