“For around 3 weeks I had a crackling noise in my neck and tightness along my traps, I thought this was due to a combination of reading too much and swimming. After trying to rectify the problem with yoga and stretching exercises, I finally asked Dr Miller if she could help me out. It took one treatment and I had immediate relief. I cannot believe I waited so long to get help, I will not make the same mistake again.
“I am so honored to have Meryl in my life, to say that I have learned from her and will continue to is quite the understatement! From pep talks on medicine free deliveries, postpartum healing, chats about child-rearing, plantar fasciitis, recipes, you name it! Meryl is such a wealth of knowledge and a passionate advocate for HEALTH. I can't imagine a more intelligent medical provider in my corner. She is committed to finding the root cause and putting in motion the most effective treatment protocol. I always tell people that in my mind Meryl is like a chiropractor extraordinaire. I believe that in every healing/medical profession there are people that rise above to provide exceptional care and education - Meryl exemplifies this.
“I started working with Dr. Shoemaker after finding out that I had 2 different types of hip impingement. I've had years of pain and loss of range of motion and was looking into whether I needed hip surgery or not to open back up the joint. Dr Shoemaker listened to me and I felt heard. He understood that I did not want to have joint surgery at 34 and he was able to help me gain range of motion back. He also made me feel like there was a chance that I could be an athlete again. Within a few times of seeing him I was able to run over a mile without pain for the first time in years! I will be forever thankful for everything that he did for me.
“Meryl has treated me on several occasions for various reasons. She helped me tremendously while I was pregnant with both of my boys. She is incredibly knowledgeable about pregnancy and how the body works and changes. I experienced such relief from pain and discomfort during my pregnancy because of her. More recently she treated me for a tailbone injury and I feel that this was a huge factor in reducing my pain and getting me ready for a weightlifting program I was going to participate in. Her goal is always to help and get me feeling better as quickly as possible. Most importantly, she has take the time to build a relationship and make each visit personal and entertaining.
“I started working with Dr. Shoemaker to help correct a shoulder injury that flared up during weightlifting. He helped me understand what was going wrong and how to correct it. He was a great help through dry needling and DNS exercises. These movements he has taught me will serve me for years to come.
“If you're looking for a Dr. that will spend time with you, listen to you and help you not only work on problem areas but also help you find the root cause of the issue then you need to see Dr Shoemaker! I cannot say enough about his manner with his patients and the time he takes to help you help yourself. He is helping me regain my mobility and strength with a pesky frozen shoulder as well as helping me understand the root cause and how to change it. He's even gone so far as to write up a program for me to follow at the gym. I am blown away at all I have learned not just about my shoulder and how it works but how its connected to my health in ways that I could not have imagined. Thank you Dr. Shoemaker - I have become a forever client!
“I initially went to see Dr Miller for a weak pelvic floor. I have had 4 kiddos, a hysterectomy and was doing weight training and started running again so I needed something to help stop that embarrassing little leak at times when I would lift, run, sneeze or cough. I honestly can say the exercises helped in more areas than I ever expected. Dr Miller taught me to breathe correctly, it took several weeks and I learned that my right side was much weaker than my left. Once I mastered it, rather than just filling up my lungs and having my chest lift when I breathe I saw and felt an increase in abdominal strength and core stability! It is a process and like all muscles if you want to strengthen them you have to work on the exercise consistently but it is so worth it! The exercises Dr Miller taught me are exercises I can use for the rest of my life and have definitely helped with my everyday life and exercise programs.
“I started seeing Dr. Shoemaker because of an old back injury and problems with my shoulder. I had been to chiropractors, massage therapists, active release docs, pain mgmt, you name it, all with short term relief only. Within the first few appointments I was on my way to really understanding the problems and correcting them with his help. He has totally changed my life. I can now enjoy things that I love.
“I have been a patient of Dr Miller for approximately 6 years. I will never forget my first visit because I was not scheduled to see her, but instead had an appointment with her husband, Dr Shoemaker. Never having seen a chiropractor before I was already nervous about the visit, but she calmly encouraged me and made me feel at ease. Her husband was out so I was to see her instead and I have been seeing her for my injuries, alignments and other health needs ever since. Now we both think back and laugh because I tried convincing her that day for several minutes that I could come back another time. I'm very glad I stayed. Over the years I have seen her for alignment issues, bursitis, hips, elbow and shoulder injuries. We eventually started walking together and have completed 5K runs together. As my doctor I love her attention to detail. She is observant, listens to your problem, and takes great care to find the right procedures for you. I have also sought her advice for other health care matters such as essential oils, whole 30, and lots of stretching advice to help me with my strength routines. She is easy to talk to, and I always have the pleasure of good conversations with her while at her office. She has been and will always be a valuable resource in my health care questions and needs. I am also very proud to call her my friend.
“I've been a massage therapist for 20 years. I know the human body. I also have a background in fitness and nutrition as well. Dr Shoemaker helped me find my core. I had a c-section in March of 2017. Come to find out....my core was totally disconnected. My top core did not work with the bottom half of my core. So once we got that figured out... my shoulder has improved. He also helped my knee, I wrecked it in Sept 2018. Bone bruise. But, let me tell you....it messed up everything. My muscles. My shoulder. Everything. :). Dr Shoemaker helped me with various exercises. Stretching. Needling. He's up to date on the latest therapies. I highly recommend InMotion Spine Muscle Joint.
“It was over five years ago when I woke up with horrible pain in my shoulder. It would last about an hour each morning. I went to my doctor and he sent me to a specialist. The specialist examined me and determined I needed surgery. I have never had major surgery and decided I needed to exhaust every avenue before I even considered one. My trainer Stacie suggested Dr Meryl or Dr Jared. I was not interested at all but I trusted Stacie and I felt I did not have any other option. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I talked with Dr Meryl for about 15 minutes at first which is unheard of in my experience with doctors. She worked on my shoulder and the pain in my shoulder went from every morning to one morning the first week. The second time I saw Dr Meryl my pain went from one day to zero days. There are not enough words to express how grateful I am. You walk into the office and feel you are a friend and not a patient whether you are talking and laughing with Dr Jared or Dr Meryl. I truly feel blessed. I am also so grateful I listened to Stacie.

“I have been seeing Dr. Miller for about 8 weeks now for pain from hernia surgery 4 yrs prior, tail bone pain, and hemorrhoids. She utilizes acupuncture on me, along with other forms of treatment. For me to get the relief I got from all of these problems was truly amazing! She worked very hard on me and always treated me with respect and constantly encouraged me to keep doing the exercises she gave me. When I was in her treatment room, I knew that nothing else mattered but me. Thank you, Dr. Miller, for the life you have given me with all your dedication and hard work.

“I went to see Dr. Meryl Miller because of mid and low back pain which I had been dealing with since 2001, and 7 back surgeries later here I was. The first time I saw her she did a full review of all my medical issues. She treated me and told me not to give up. Her personality was of true concern and caring. I felt very comfortable with her from the very first day. I wondered about all the different techniques she was using but went along as she explained what she was doing. Just knowing her I felt so blessed and as time went on life was so much better. I feel better than I have in the last ten years and I can actually enjoy life!

“I suffered with hip pain for 3 months. I went to one chiropractor, but the outcome was unsuccessful.
I decided to seek chiropractic care with Dr. Meryl Miller, and hoped it would help.
It wasn't long after seeing Dr. Miller, my pain was gone. I no longer suffer with hip problems.
I am one happy patient.

“After years of seeking chiropractic care for different health issues and feeling no long term relief, I met Dr. Miller at a running event this fall and decided that it was time to change from the insanity of what I was currently doing, seeing the same chiropractor and getting no relief. I went to see Dr. Miller for the first time and after the first treatment I felt dramatically better. I continued to see her a few more times and I have had such an amazing journey. I went from daily pain to no pain at all. Dr. Miller's approach was completely different, we actually addressed the issues as to where my pain was coming from and why I was having it. She gave me strengthening exercises and techniques to help promote long term healing. I am so blessed to have met Dr. Miller and would highly recommend her to anyone.
