Dr. Blake Meyer
About two years ago, Blake Meyer, D.C., Davenport
’13, Des Moines, Iowa, launched a chiropractic office
in the Mercy Medical Center – Des Moines campus.
Chiropractic was such a success at Mercy Medical
Center that when the hospital opened its multi-disciplinary
Mercy Comfort Health Center for Women in
April 2017, its services included chiropractic care. The
center addresses a variety of women’s health issues,
including breast care, pelvic health, menopause symptom
management and mental health. Plastic and reconstructive surgery consultations,
physical therapy, medical imaging, health screenings and assessments and
complementary wellness services—including chiropractic care, massage therapy
and acupuncture—also are offered.
“It’s exciting to be providing such services in a truly multi-disciplinary setting,
where chiropractic is on-par with traditional treatment options,” Dr. Meyer says.
“And while this opportunity treats a particular patient population, it’s a great
roadmap for further inclusion on a larger scale within health-care networks. I
am excited about the opportunities that have opened and to be included alongside
some wonderful physicians. It’s an exciting time for the profession.”
