Personal Philosophy

Dr. Scherer views chiropractic treatment as a way to give back to his community. At age 14 he severely injured his neck while playing football. He was unable to move his right arm for three weeks. Through chiropractic care his pain was significantly decreased and function of his arm was fully restored within just a few months.

 Inspired by his recovery, Dr. Scherer believes he can to relate to his patients who are in pain. Through his personal experience, he understands the frustration of an injury and the healing transformation of chiropractic care.

If he is unable to help a patient within his scope of care, he will refer to another clinician or service which may provide greater benefit.
