Dr. Michael Beres


Dr. Beres is the founder and clinic director of Beres Chiropractic Center, Inc. He earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from The University of Georgia and his Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, GA.

Dr. Beres’ interest and belief in chiropractic was sparked while on UGA’s club wrestling team. He had always dealt with chronic back pain and felt that even at a young age it was just part of life. When over the counter pain medication seemed to no longer help the pain, he decided to go visit a local chiropractor. After several visits Dr. Beres began to experience more than just pain relief but increased flexibility along with overall improvement in his health. He began to sleep better, headaches went away: even his seasonal allergies no longer seemed to be a problem. He believes in chiropractic because of his personal experience. Therefore, he desires to help others live pain-free without medicine and/or surgeries.

Dr. Beres is a member of the Georgia Chiropractic Association. He is a licensed and Board-Certified Chiropractor and the only Graston Certified provider in the Columbus area. Dr. Beres is Board Certified in Physiotherapy. He is certified in RockTape FMT 1&2 and is a RockDoc. He also has extensive training in Active Release Technique.

Dr. Beres was born and raised in Zebulon, GA. He is married to the former Michaele Mobley of Waverly Hall, GA. They have a daughter and son.

Dr. Beres enjoys watching UGA football especially when they are playing the Auburn Tigers (his wife’s alma mater). His other hobbies include anything outdoors, traveling and spending time with his family and friends.

Thank you for considering Beres Chiropractic Center for your chiropractic needs. We look forward to serving you soon.
