About us

Modern Chiropractic Center

MC2 was created to help Boise area residents with the most difficult spine and health problems. We exist to help people who have tried many other things to help their spine that got only temporary improvement at best. We are here to give hope to those that feel hopeless and provide results that last a lifetime.

For anyone who has tried traditional chiropractic, physical therapy (PT), pain-killers, drugs and even surgery with the problem only to return time and time again, mc2 was created for YOU.

Dr. Joe Betz

Owner & Clinical Director

I have a personal mission to help as many people world-wide with spine problems and health issues. In addition to seeing patients full-time at mc2, I am also a published spine researcher, author and seminar instructor, as well as consultant to doctors throughout North America.

Through these roles, I can improve the care received by thousands of people I’ve never even met. Despite all these other roles, I still make the health of our patients at mc2 my top professional priority.

Ten months ago I was hasty in my decision to rate Modern with only 3 stars. The positive experience I have here is worth more than 5 stars can describe. Modern Chiropractic is the perfect balance for professionalism and yet lighthearted staff, prompt service yet never sloppy delivery. A person would do themselves a great disservice to take something as precious as their health and mobility anywhere else. Dr. Joe and his staff are the best.

Energy is always positive. They are a saving grace in the community and to me. Don't know what I would without them.

Don't live in pain. I have been only going for 2 months and feel like a new person. I have had lower back pain for 17 years and thought it was something i had to live with. Not only does my back feel better but many other pain are going away. I have very few headaches and when i do get them they are mild. I have not had any migraines in the last 2 months. I would get them so bad i could not function. The people who work here are so nice and they know what they are doing. Don't wait go see them and stop living in pain.

Modern Chiropractic has done wonders for my lower back pain. I have had chronic lower back pain for over 16 years, it was so debilitating at times I would have to slide off the couch, get on my knees and pull myself up with my arms. Chiropractic care combined with massage therapy from Aaron has made a world of difference. Aaron targets those trouble areas and will give you the best deep tissue massage you will ever experience. I highly recommend Modern Chiropractic for any neck or back pain/problems you may be experiencing they will do a wonderful job taking care of you.

Modern Chiropractic Center 2, is amazing! I knew my back needed adjusting, “obviously it hurt most of the time.” MC2 fixed my back pain, but what I did not know would happen was the chronic pain and stiffness in my knees going away. After a couple weeks -my husband asked how I liked the care at MC2, I said, you know, since MC2 has been working on my back… I’ve noticed that the motion in my knees is better and that I’m not in pain. I did not know that straitening my back out would help that much with my pain and stiffness in my knees!!MC2 is a warm, fun, and a welcoming environment, they truly care, and isn’t that what healing is all about!kThanks again MC2Michelle W-Chapa

I cannot say how long it has been since my last visit to a chiropractor, and I did not think that anyone Chiropractic was different from the other. Since receiving treatment from Modern Chiropractic due to a car accident, I now know that Modern Chiropractic was the right choice for me. The Modern Chiropractic staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and they never keep you waiting. Modern Chiropractic has helped me heal from my car accident injuries. I recommend Modern Chiropractic to anyone that is thinking of going to a chiropractor.

Neglected my back care for a few years and so glad I am taking the time for myself once again. My feet ache and bones beginning to remind me of the years of hard work and play. The last 4 weeks I no longer have to wear insoles and I am averaging 6,000 to 10,000 steps a day pain free. Energy levels returning and even lost a few pounds. Thankful to have made the decision to go and restart taking my health back.

This place is really nice. The staff is so kind, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. They make me comfortable and put me at ease. I was a little nervous getting adjusted but after the first adjustment, the nervousness has gone away:)

My first experience with Chiropractors and I am hooked. These people are professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. The staff is helpful and accommodating as far as scheduling goes and they are willing to help you feel at ease if you are uncomfortable with the whole concept of being adjusted (which is wonderful-not scary at all). I am grateful to these guys for finally helping me to get decent posture. 🙂 If you're looking for a chiropractor, look no further.

I've been to a few chiropractors and physical therapists for my back and neck issues in the Treasure Valley over my 20 years of back pain, and I'm very impressed with the treatment regimes offered at Modern Chiropractic. The adjustments, physical therapy, traction, followed by icing in office, administered by a very knowledgeable and experienced staff of experts in this field, have helped me more within the first week of care than treatments that went on for months. I have been given the utmost care and concern for my pain levels and health. It is well worth the drive across town for me, and I am relieved to put my care in Dr. Joe's competent hands. Thank you to the whole staff, who have been nothing short of awesome.

I was skeptical about chiropractic care when I first started going to Modern Chiropractic.I was in a car accident and decided to give it a try. I told the staff during my new patient interview that I wasn't planning on making chiropractic a new part of my life and that I would just be going until I felt better.After 2 months of treatments I was experiencing so much less pain. I told my wife that she needed to start going to help with some neck and back pain she has been dealing with for over 3 years.I am now converted. I hope that modern chiropractic can be a part of my life for years to come.

The staff at Modern Chiropractic are very welcoming and knowledgeable. They take care to explain things to me so I am fully aware of everything I need to know. They are very kind and I'm always appreciative of how a small staff can handle so many people and still make me feel so important and cared about. I truly am thankful for the staff for helping me. -- Kas

I am so glad I started going to Modern Chiropractic Center to correct my spine issues. I had no idea the impact it had on my life and even though its only been a few Weeks. I generally feel better! Plus all of the staff are amazing. They are so professional and knowledgeable and they care about each and every person that they see.

A truly great experience! Modern Chiropractic offers so much more in their therapy options. I was used to going in getting adjusted and leaving. When entering Modern Chiropractic it is evident that they have so much more to offer. Their cutting edge equipment and therapy is AMAZING! The staff is great, they genuinely care and you walk away knowing that you are in the best available hands out there. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MODERN CHIROPRACTIC!

Sadie is AWESOME. I always leave her massages feeling relaxed and so much better. She listens to everything I tell her about where I'm sore or my body hurts. The space she has created is perfect. Very professional every time I'm in there. I won't go anywhere else!
