LIMA — The newly open Surge Chiropractic on 3477 South Dixie Highway, Suite A is a practice that not only focuses on the spine and other areas of the body, but the body as whole, according to owner, Cory Meuleman.
Meuleman knew he wanted to go into chiropractic care as a way to treat injured athletes, as he had several injuries in high school.
“I always found it very intriguing, and it was always in the back of my mind,” said Meuleman during the Surge Chiropractic grand opening, Friday. “During undergrad I studied exercise science nutrition and before I graduated I knew that I was in the right direction I just didn’t know for sure what I would do.”
After receiving his doctorate from Life University in Marietta, Georgia, he began working for a chiropractic office in Columbus Grove and in April, he officially opened Surge Chiropractic.
“This is my first practice,” said Meuleman. “Opening my own practice is very exciting and a little intimidating at the same time. I knew that I always wanted to start my own, I just didn’t think that it would be this soon. The opportunity kind of just presented itself and fell in my lap I took it and ran with it.”
Surge is a holistic practice that takes into account not only the structural health and function of the spine and extremities, but how environmental factors, nutrition, lifestyle have on a patient’s health.
Meuleman provides care for families, physically active individuals and athletes. He hopes to help athletes avoid injuries, recover from injuries faster and enhance their performance.
“I think what I do is different because I handle injuries case by case,” said Meuleman. “I don’t do care plans and no money up front, because everyone responds to things differently. I just take it case by case and see how you are responding to care and develop a plan off of that.”
The practice is open 8 a.m. to noon and 2-7 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays.
