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.

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.

Great facility and greater staff! Working to help patients live a better lifestyle than just to feel better for a day or two! Very knowledgeable and friendly people! At work I always felt I was working myself dead and would lay around the house at night and on the weekends and usually had a negative vibe to my personality. After even only a couple weeks into my corrective program, I'm more energized, I feel great even after contorting my back, driving, and heavy lifting all day, it doesn't kill me to be on my feet all day anymore, and friends and family are seeing a happier side of me that nobody has seen in a long time! Can't thank Modern Chiropractic enough for helping get part of myself back I never knew I was missing.

The staff at MC2 is nothing short of amazing. They genuinely care about their patients and truly want to help. It has been almost a year since I started treatment at MC2 and I feel fantastic. I haven't been able to move so freely in years. Both of my children are also patients and we are SO happy that we found this group.

Amazing, caring and fun staff! They have not only helped my posture but have helped my daughter with scoliosis avoid needing to do a back brace. They always make us both feel at ease yet still push our bodies into proper alignment. Highly recommend!!

I love Modern Chiropractor! They’re amazing. I have gone to chiropractors for the last 20 years & none of them have been able to help me the way Modern did in a matter of months. The team there has a tremendous amount of knowledge. Everyone there puts the patients needs first , all while educating & helping you to better health.

These guys are awesome!!! I work in IT and have the “hunch” that’s the result of hours spent over a keyboard, staring at a monitor. They have since educated me in the “error of my ways”, as I continue to work on good posture and healthy habits. I’ve notice a huge difference in my overall health thanks to their adjustments and regularly scheduled tractions. Have I mentioned the people there are Amazing?!? They are knowledgeable, professional and care deeply for your well being. IMHO, I think they are the best at what they do.

I had severe back and leg pain .i have severe scoliosis along with other things wrong with my back . My back is mostly pain free and the tingling numbness in my leg is mainly gone thanks to Modern Chiropractic center. The people there are great and have an upbeat personality. Love their professional advice and guidance and support. I was told 25 years ago never go to a chiropractor cause I would end up in a wheelchair. Thanks to everyone at Modern Chiropractic Center and their speciality in treating severe scoliosis I am back to walking without my cane and there is no wheelchair in my future. Thanks everyone for your support.

I came here after getting no resolve in my scoliosis and poor posture from another clinic here in Boise that I had been going to for 2 years. It’s only been a month and I’m already seeing AND feeling positive changes with Modern Chiropractic. Their approach to spinal treatment and overall spinal health is the most comprehensive I’ve experienced in any chiropractic clinic I’ve visited. Also, the staff are very supportive and personable!

I love this place! They truly care about your overall health and healing and the atmosphere is amazing. Unfortunately, I am only living in Boise for the summer so I won’t get to continue going, but I’m recommending to all my Boise friends! I already have a friend that started going after I did and she also loves it! Would highly recommend if you’re experiencing pain or just want to get healthier overall.

I have had Chiropractic care for over 30 years with at least half a dozen different Chiropractic clinics. My experience with Modern Chiropractic has been the best overall. They are extremely thorough in evaluating your needs and care. Everyone that works here is professional, caring, and concerned about your progress. The methods they use are very effective and after a dozen visits I feel better than I have in months.I have seen many massage therapists in my 24 years of living in Boise before finding Thomas, who is their on staff massage therapist. He is serious about his work and I appreciate that so much.Thank you Modern Chiropractic!

Modern chiropractic is like no other chiropractic care I have had. They have an awesome team of professionals, each bringing talents and abilities to give their patients specialized care. You can tell they really care and want what is best for you. Everyone is friendly, kind and encouraging. They were super willing to work out problems and adjust treatment when needed. I have learned so much and am so grateful for my experience here!

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.

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!
