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 Doctorate 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 seem to no longer help the pain, he decided to go visit a local chiropractor. After several visits to the chiropractor, Dr. Beres began to experience more that 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.
