Battle Creek Chiropractors Drs Jeromy
& Rachelle Myers & Emily Leatherman

Dr. Rachelle Myers D.C.  Born in a small town in New Brunswick, Canada, Dr. Rachelle always had an interest in science while in school. Dr. Rachelle was one of those students who had to carry all of her books back and forth to school no matter if she needed them or not.  Although one would think doing such would be great exercise, it is not.  It puts a lot of strain and stress on a growing spine; which caused her to get severe neck pain, to the point where she’d be stuck unable to move her neck due to the pain.  So she met with this amazing Chiropractor who helped her out, informed her that her backpack needed to lose some weight and throughout conversations got to know more on chiropractic.  She then went to Palmer College where she met Dr. Jeromy and they both decided to serve the Battle Creek area and surrounding communities.

Together, Dr. Rachelle and Dr. Jeromy have two daughters and two dogs.  Most every one of their patients and friends have met at least one of their furry babies, BooBoo.  BooBoo is a rescue dog that the Myers accepted into their family a few years ago.  BooBoo loves to come to the office and head to her favorite spot under Dr. Rachelle’s desk for long naps or moving locations to underneath the adjustment table.  You can sometimes catch her in the waiting room greeting patients and sneaking a few snuggles from them too.

Dr. Jeromy Myers

Dr. Jeromy Myers D.C.  I thought everyone had to have lower back pains to grow up strong. In my teen athletic career I suffered with this lower back pain, taking medications when it got to intense. My family began chiropractic in the same clinic we now own with Dr. Gymer. The very first adjustment I received, I was pain free and extremely intrigued. I could not believe that I did not have to live with this pain and have to take medication. I felt a weight had been lifted off of me. From that point on I received regular chiropractic because it improved my overall performance in all aspects of my life.

The relief of pain from just making sure your spine was working as it should absolutely intrigued me. I began to bug the now semi-retired Dr. Gymer about finding out more information on this profession. He gave me several books that were amazing. My regular chiropractic visits helped me function so much better overall I would never miss any appointment. The kicker for my decision came one day while I was waiting for Dr. Gymer in the room and he came around the corner with a squirt gun in his hand. His secretary at the time came into the room before Dr. Gymer adjusted me and squirted him with her squirt gun right between the eyes. The pure happiness that you felt when you left the office was like no other doctor I had ever been to. After that I knew this profession was for me.

Dr. Emily Leatherman

Dr. Emily Leatherman D.C. grew up in Battle Creek and graduated from Lakeview High School in 2004.  Dr. Emily first met Dr. Jeromy and Dr. Rachelle Myers in high school by participating in a program called 21st Century Health through the Calhoun Area Careers and Technology Center.  Dr. Emily went on and received her Bachelors of Arts in Biology from Albion College in 2008.  She attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa and graduated Magna Cum Laude in February 2013.  After graduation she came back to her hometown and has been working with Dr. Jeromy and Dr. Rachelle Myers since. While attending Palmer, Dr. Emily studied the Sacral Occipital Technique (SOT).  SOT is a specialty chiropractic technique designed to reduce or eliminate pain in the head, neck, back, pelvis, and extremities.  This technique involves precise positioning of the body on wedges and focusing on allowing the body to adjust itself using an individual’s body weight and breathing patterns.  This gentler technique can be beneficial for anyone and is especially helpful for first time chiropractic patients.

In her spare time Dr. Emily is the mother to a miniature dachshund named Daphne.  Chiropractic care allows her to stay healthy so she can do what she loves doing, running and maintaining her fresh vegetable garden throughout the spring and summer.

 

Chiropractic Education

Dr. Rachelle went to school at the University of Moncton in New Brunswick, Canada where she received her bachelors of science in Biochemistry. From there she went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic where she graduated on the president’s list and Magna Cum Laude from her class. She also became a part of the Pi Tau Delta society for highest honors in the class. Her most valuable experience throughout school was in the laboratory where she discovered the amazing detail of the brain and spinal cord. The experience still sticks with her today seven years later.

Dr. Jeromy had a road less traveled educational experience. He first started at Kalamazoo College for two and a half years where he was able to play collegiate football for two years. He then completed his pre-requisite work for chiropractic school at Kellogg Community College. He then went into Palmer College of Chiropractic where he graduated Magna Cum Laude and was part of the Pi Tau Delta society for highest honors. His most inspiring moment was in the one of the most difficult classes at Palmer College, he received the highest grade in the class from the toughest teacher. A teacher by the way that has been at the school since the 60’s, in fact he is still teaching today as of this writing!

Health for Us

Drs Rachelle and Jeromy get adjusted every two weeks rain or shine. They both enjoy working out on a regular four days or more a week schedule. Their household strives to constantly improve the health of their diet with the food choices they keep in our house. By simply resisting the urge to buy something not good for you at the grocery store, many times you control the diet you live by. They try to keep the highest quality food, juices and supplements in our house at all times while keeping the non natural food at a minimum. In their house they do not have any type of over-the-counter medications or antibiotics, simply due to the lack of need for these types of things, if they consistently improve their health everyday. They constantly try to stay up on the latest nutritional information not only for the practice members benefit, but their family’s benefit as well.[/toggle]
