Dr. Joe Merli

A Passion for Athletics

Dr. Joe Merli “Dr. Joe” graduated from New York Chiropractic College with a doctorate in chiropractic. Dr Joe specializes in rehabilitation and working with athletes. From a young age he has had a passion for sports and athletics.

After playing football in high school and competing in power-lifting in college until this day, Chiropractic has helped him to maintain good spinal health in order to be able to do what he is most passionate about. He also is currently enrolled in the masters of nutrition program at New York Chiropractic College and is very knowledgeable in the field of nutrition, helping patients incorporate proper diet as well as chiropractic care.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Merli is now certified in the Kennedy Decompression Technique. Since there is a high failure rate in disc surgical procedures, Dr. Merli has decided to take extra effort and seek out the most advanced disc training course to help prevent his patients from surgery. The Kennedy Decompression Technique is a very credible, high class decompression certification course which involves 12 hours of online training and 12 hours of hands on decompression training which is approved through the Logan College of Chiropractic. At this certification course, Dr. Merli learned how to properly classify patients into certain categories based upon performing many provocative examinations. Based upon the results found from these examinations, as a certified decompression practitioner, he can effectively treat disc symptom patients with the highest level of knowledge and expertise. Dr. Merli is the only KDT certified practitioner in Carbondale and the surrounding area. So, if you find yourself suffering from a disc herniation, bulge, degenerative disc disease, sciatic nerve pain, or any type of low back or neck pain Carbondale Chiropractic Center would like to have a consultation with you today! If you are looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, and credible decompression practitioner please contact Carbondale Chiropractic Center today at 570-282-1240.

When Dr Joe isn’t taking care of his patients, you’ll find him enjoying the great outdoors, especially fishing.
