Merrill Chiropractic: Klug opens E. Main St. office



A new chiropractic office opened east of Center Avenue in Merrill on August 2, 2021.

Located at 1219 E. Main St. in the building that was once a pawn shop, Travis Klug, DC, now owns and operates Merrill Chiropractic. Currently, he is the only practicing doctor in the office, but the company also employs a chiropractic assistant, Kasey Haskins. Everyone loves it, Dr. Klug said. “She has such a welcoming personality and makes sure everything runs smoothly at Merrill Chiropractic.”

Why chiropractic?
“I grew up going to the chiropractor often as a kid, and it heightened my interest in the profession at a young age,” Dr. Klug said. “I was fascinated by how the human body works and how it has this amazing ability to heal when given the right tools. I also realized that there were way too many drugs and unnecessary surgeries in the United States.

“I knew I wanted to help others, and for me, chiropractic made sense,” he said. “Chiropractic is the tool that allows our body to heal more effectively by restoring the proper functioning of the nervous system.”

Success stories: making a difference
Dr. Klug said he really appreciates hearing the success stories of patients after chiropractic care.

“We love meeting new people and learning a bit more about their lives, and how they were able to enjoy their lives more after starting care!” he said. “We have a patient here who just started a few weeks ago and he used to walk all the time and loves being outside. About a year and a half ago he started having extreme pain in his hip and his hips locked up to the point that he could barely walk up and down his stairs.

“This week he walks into our office and is thrilled that he no longer has a problem walking up and down his stairs, and he’s literally starting to jump around our office to show off his progress.”

“These are the things I love the most about our business,” Dr. Klug said. “It’s a great feeling to know that we’re making a difference in someone’s life and ultimately improving the community.”

Tailor-made care plans
“At Merrill Chiropractic, we are really focused on personalized and affordable care plans for our patients,” he said. “We give people the ability to see what is causing their pain or condition and offer them a solution.”

“In many cases they have tried other forms of treatment, including medication or preparing for surgery. Chiropractic offers people hope to return to a pain-free life,” Dr. Klug said.

“A challenge in the chiropractic community is to help the public and patients understand that healing takes time,” Dr. Klug said. “Often people come to our office with an illness that has been causing them problems for months or even years, hoping that they will be ‘fixed’ after the first visit. When in reality, the longer a person has been suffering from a disease, the more damage it has done and it takes time to heal.

“We take the time to educate and help people understand that healing is a process,” he said. “We like to take x-rays with patients to show them the problem and how long it has been there. It helps patients understand the process it took to get there and the process it will take to heal and get better.

“Our goal is to always provide the best care to as many people in this community as possible,” Dr. Klug said. “We’ve kept very busy at Merrill Chiropractic, which we love! Our patients really enjoy coming to Merrill Chiropractic, and our number of referrals is growing every month, which is ultimately the greatest compliment we can receive.

“While we hope you choose Merrill Chiropractic, ultimately we want our community to get the help they need by seeking care with someone they feel comfortable with in the chiropractic community” , did he declare. “We like to give people the opportunity to come see what we have to offer, tell us about their conditions or concerns, and then put a plan in place to help them achieve their goals.”

“Occasionally, we refer patients to other providers in the community because they may be a better fit for them, or because they have a specific therapy or table that will better help them achieve their health goals” , said Dr. Klug.

Special therapies and future plans
His office offers special chiropractic therapies. “Besides chiropractic adjustments, we also offer intersegmental traction, which is a table that helps stretch and mobilize the spine,” he said. “Our patients love it!”

He hopes to be able to add additional therapy tables to help with a range of conditions in the near future. “It will allow us to offer more to the community and give us the ability to serve more people,” Dr. Klug said.

It also plans to increase its office staff. “Soon we will be hiring another member of staff for our reception to help us accommodate the increasing number of patients we are seeing,” he said.
