Dr. Lewis Meltz, D.C. is a Chiropractor, Clinic Director at Gold River

Dr. Lewis Meltz is hardly new to the Sacramento Area. He comes to The Joint - Gold River, after being the Clinic Director at The Joint - Renaissance Creek in Granite Bay since 2015. Before joining The Joint family of local offices he had his own private practice in El Dorado Hills for 25- years. A long time resident of the Western Slope in El Dorado County, Dr. Meltz' trusted family oriented practice has provided innovative and skillful chiropractic care to thousands of patients young and old for decades.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know Dr. Meltz has been in continuous practice for the past 36- years, focusing on often neglected spinal maintenance and prevention using skillful manual chiropractic adjustments to improve your day-to-day performance and vitality. Of course when needed, care for injuries when you’ve overdone things a little bit or exceeded your limits. You can follow Dr. Meltz on YouTube with his series called “100-Ways To Better Health” and soon an online course called “30-Days To Healthier Living and Beyond.” Dr. Meltz specializes in the evaluation, treatment, and management of nerve, muscle and joint conditions along with sport injuries caused by active lifestyles. His popularity among members of The Joint is quite revealing, and here’s why. When it comes to your good health he regularly follows his own advice so you can always feel your very best. Why? Because neither time nor gravity is on your side anymore especially when it comes to the health of your spine and the 146- separate joints that allows the 24- distinctly different vertebra in your neck, middle and lower back that allows you to move freely and effortlessly.

Dr. Meltz will tell you regular weekly chiropractic care is directly related to your overall physical, and emotional health. Your well-being is dependent upon being primed and optimized, and in order to make you feel energetic and strong each day you’ve got to do something about it just like brushing your teeth. Make no mistake, if you want to become even more energized and healthy, so that you have the mental, emotional, and physical energy and stamina needed to achieve your purpose over the long term, chiropractic care every week is just one of the 3- puzzle pieces you want to choose namely Relief, Retraining and then Wellness care.

Dr. Meltz strives to eat well, sleep well, and exercise so he has the physical vibrancy and stamina to enjoy life and deal with its challenges and opportunities at any moment. Ask yourself this one question: “To achieve this vision for myself, I would have to start doing the following 3- things… “ And if regular chiropractic adjustments is on the list, you’ve come to the right place to make a difference in yourself.

Dr. Meltz is a Fellow of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists and is one of only a handful of Board Certified Chiropractic Orthopedists in the Greater Sacramento Area. Funny, intelligent, and personable there’s a gazillion reasons why our members like Dr. Meltz so much. Yeah, he says that’s a pretty big number, because there’s a bazillion zeros before you even reach a gazillion.

Dr. Meltz is considered a seasoned specialist in the evaluation, and treatment of nerve, muscle and joint conditions and has undergone an additional five years of chiropractic specific training; successfully completing a rigorous written, oral and practical examination process administered by the American Board of Chiropractic Orthopedists. In addition, Dr. Meltz is also a Subject Matter Expert to the CA Board of Chiropractic Examiners, an Examination Commissioner for Part IV of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and has qualified as a recognized chiropractic expert in multiple superior court jurisdictions throughout California having testified in over 90- jury trials.

A former Associate Clinical Professor, at the prestigious Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, he is also the current vice-president of Chiropractic Orthopedists of North America.

Those who want to be their very best, add weekly chiropractic care to their follow-up health care schedule in addition to their other good health habits. The pleasant result is often more vitality, endurance, and the capacity to enjoy life to its fullest through a wellness lifestyle. This goes hand-in-hand with adequate exercise, a proper diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, lots of good clean water, and sufficient rest every day.
