Bergen Family Chiropractic


Dan is an outdoorsy man who didn’t want to be slowed down by neck and back pain.

Dan first came to Bergen Family Chiropractic with neck pain, headaches, upper back pain, and shoulder pain. “Dr. Amy did a full assessment and gave me 4-5 exercises and at-home stretches to do…and now the pain and stiffness are gone.”

Jessica was thrilled to improve her posture with her chiropractic care plan and home exercises.
See how much her forward head posture improved after only 3 months of chiropractic care!

Jessica was getting a tremendous amount of headaches and frequent neck pain when she first presented to Bergen Family Chiropractic. “Dr. Amy fixed me!!” Jessica declared. “Along with the adjustments, Dr. Amy gave me exercises to do at home from her YouTube Channel (Dr. Amy Mercovich Posture and Health TV) that even my son, Parker, does too.” Jessica says she feels motivated to keep up with her maintenance and exercises in order to make sure the headaches don’t return.

Kayleen has been a practice member since 2012 and feels that chiropractic adjustments are one of the best things she can do to feel younger.

Kayleen and her husband, Jim, first came to Bergen Family Chiropractic when they were referred by a friend. Both of them were living with chronic pain. They found that chiropractic adjustments helped them to feel much better. Kayleen was pleased that Dr. Amy gave her so many healthy suggestions and exercises to do between adjustment visits to keep her feeling well and to have an overall improved life.

Jim enjoys his monthly maintenance appointments because he sees how the spine is the foundation of health.

Jim first came to Bergen Family Chiropractic with chronic neck and lower back pain. He stated that he felt immediate relief from the adjustments. He was dedicated to his routine of stretches and exercises that Dr. Amy gave to him and he appreciated how much Dr. Amy is dedicated to her patients’ health and wellness. Jim explained “with her encouragement I was able to quit smoking and I am grateful to share that story with others.” Jim also expressed appreciation for the monthly newsletters showing exercise videos and other health information.

Cindy loves that her neck pain went away with chiropractic care and also that she rarely gets a cold or any illness at all since getting adjusted.

Cindy’s brother and sister-in-law referred her to Bergen Family Chiropractic because she was suffering with chronic neck pain. “Dr. Amy adjusted me, gave me at home exercises, and gave me a treatment plan to follow.” Now, she feels great and looks forward to her monthly maintenance adjustments.

Nancy B feels better with chiropractic care that helps her posture.

Nancy B. first came into the office because she was feeling crooked. Along with her adjustment Dr. Amy gave her the tools to stay healthy via exercises and the use of a home neck tractioning device.  Nancy says she feels better after every adjustment and comes in on a regular basis to stay healthy and to continue to feel great. 

Chiropractic care helped Chris R. to heal from head, neck, and torso pain.

Chris first came into the office because his head, neck, and part of his torso was off center and he was in pain. Dr. Amy adjusted Chris and advised him to use a Denneroll (home cervical rehab device) to help restore the curve in his neck. To get Chris back into healthy alignment he came in for adjustments 2x/week for 4 weeks. 

Chris is an automated equipment technician and needs to maintain his health to continue to do his job safely and without being in pain. To do that Chris still uses the Denneroll at home as well as gets a monthly maintenance chiropractic adjustment.

Jordan S is so much happier and healthier now!

Jordan first came into the office because she injured her back and was unable to walk without assistance for almost 2 weeks. Her husband suggested she make an appointment with Dr. Amy for chiropractic care.

“Dr. Amy saved my life,” Jordan said. After a few adjustment visits Jordan stated she was up and walking without assistance and without pain. Now that she is out of pain, Jordan says she gets adjusted to help the pain she gets from sitting in front of a computer all day.

Wendy got rid of both her neck pain AND the ringing in her ears with chiropractic!

Wendy told us… “I made my initial appointment because I had horrible neck pain. I had also been suffering from terrible ringing in the ears but I didn’t think there was anything I could do about that and I thought I was going deaf.

At my initial appointment, Dr. Amy found that I was out of alignment and put me on a regime of adjustments 2x/week. Not only am I no longer suffering from the neck pain, but the ringing in the ears has stopped too!

I feel so much better. There is a great vibe to the office and I enjoy coming in for my maintenance appointments.”

Dianne shares her story of what brought her to Bergen Family Chiropractic
and her impressive results…

Please note that the experiences and results of these practice members are unique to them and results will vary among patients.

Dianne first came to Bergen Family Chiropractic after not being satisfied with the medical answers she received from her Neurologist. She had been experiencing a decline in her health since December 2016 and had lingering symptoms that the Doctors could never quite diagnose. After several tests including multiple MRI’s and an injection medication that her body did not tolerate well, Dianne began to search out other options to better her health.  That brought her to Dr. Amy in July 2017.

Dianne’s care plan was extensive as she had a severe cervical subluxation. Dr. Amy gave her a Denneroll to re-establish her neck curve and multiple appointments a week, at first, to help boost the healing of her nervous system and increase her CoreScore. “The difference in my thermography testing that I had when I started going and then at my follow up testing was very substantial.” Her CoreScore increased by almost 30 points – how awesome!

“I have had very impressive results since starting my Chiropractic care plan. I no longer suffer from the pin pricks in the bottoms of my feet or struggle with my balance. I have not had any bladder issues or suffered from the severe fatigue I once suffered. I overall feel so much better than before Chiropractic.” 

She now freely talks to friends and family regarding the very impressive results that she has experienced. “I have had an overall wonderful experience at Bergen Family Chiropractic. I love Dr. Amy and I am so thankful with the positive results that I have had. The front desk person is always so very friendly and helpful. My only regret is that I did not start going there sooner.”

Barb B. tells us…”“Getting adjusted makes me feel fabulous, not just because it gets rid of all of my aches and pains but because my whole body is working right!”

“I first came to see Dr. Amy for my chronic lower back pain. She assessed my overall spinal health and then gave me a regime to improve my back which reduced the amount of pain I was having. I now come in once a month to maintain the health of my spine. Coming in once a month helps me to live a more enjoyable and consistent quality of life.” -Sarah S.

Ryan N. is happy to go to work now because his hand no longer goes numb and cramps up from the pinched nerve in his neck.

When Ryan N. first came to Bergen Family Chiropractic he had constant neck pain, stiffness, and left hand tingling and cramping. All of these symptoms made his work life as a mechanic painful and challenging. After 2 months of chiropractic adjustments by Dr. Amy, he is thrilled at how great he feels. He tells us that he wakes up feeling well rested with no pain or stiffness in his neck, and his hand no longer goes numb or cramps up. “It’s thanks to my wife that I finally decided to try out chiropractic.”

“Chiropractic has really changed my life!” ~ Ryan N.

Maddie W. appreciates her maintenance adjustments because it keeps her pain-free and healthy.

Maddie told us she first started coming to Bergen Family Chiropractic because she had neck and shoulder pain that wouldn’t get better despite seeing doctors, even going to Emergency, and taking medications that were prescribed to her. She decided she didn’t want to just take medicine, she wanted to correct the problem.

After only 2 months of weekly adjustments, Maddie got better and now she feels great. Her regular maintenance visits keep her pain-free, happy, and healthy. She looks forward to her chiropractic adjustment days!

“I didn’t want to cover the pain, I wanted to fix the problem.” ~ Maddie W.

Jess and her son, Connor

Jessica and her son, Connor, are part of one of our wonderful chiropractic families. Jessica was getting adjusted throughout her pregnancy in order to keep good alignment in general, to help a hip issue, and to help her neck because she looks down all day at her job as a pharmacist. She brought Connor in to have his spine checked at 4 weeks old because he was colicky and constipated. After a couple of adjustments from Dr. Amy, “Connor was happy and regular,” his mom reported.

Anne and Warren

See how happy a chiropractic lifestyle is making this sweet couple? Anne and Warren have been receiving weekly wellness adjustments since 2007.

Now they enjoy their lives to the fullest. Anne and Warren appreciate how friendly and helpful Dr. Amy is and how enjoyable it is to come each week to stay healthy and feeling great.

Karen and her son, Myles

Karen is an amazing teacher, wife, and mother. She came to Bergen Family Chiropractic in 2001 because she had a constant stiff neck. She started getting spinal adjustments, felt much better, and has never looked back.

Karen found that the chiropractic care also alleviated her migraine pain as well as helped her to manage the daily stress of her life.

When Karen was pregnant with her son, she noticed significant pain relief when she was consistent with her adjustments. Now her son, Myles, gets his spine checked and adjusted regularly.

“I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Amy and Dr. Pat. They both are amazing and you know you have great chiropractors when they will come in on a Sunday evening to help your autistic son when he throws his hip out. They are truly wonderful.” – Karen

Zaylynn came to us at 5 months old when her Mom and Pediatrician noticed that she had a severe head tilt and would not turn to look right.

Upon examination, Doctor Amy found that Zaylynn had a severe subluxation in her C1 (upper cervical – neck area). This is sometimes called Torticollis and is seen quite often in babies at various ages. Not many pediatricians notice these conditions but thankfully Zaylynn’s did and made the suggestion to her Mom to get it checked out further.

         Before – Visit #1         After – Visit #4


As seen in these two pictures, the one Before was taken on her 1st appointment before any adjustment was done and the After picture was taken on visit #4. What a difference! Zaylynn’s nervous system is now flowing properly and she will continue to grow to be a healthy and happy little girl!  – Zaylynn, as stated by her Mom, Practice Member since 2018

Jim came to us with back and shoulder pain from a sports injury many years ago. His daughter recommended Dr. Amy as she was already a patient and had good results with her adjustments (his grandchildren even get adjustments too).  Jim is continuing his care here to help keep his nervous system flowing at its optimal level by coming in every 2 weeks. “Everyone at Bergen Family Chiropractic is always friendly and helpful and I would recommend Bergen Family Chiropractic to friends and family, Thanks Bergen Family Chiropractic!” – Jim N, Practice Member since 2016

This is our friend Jake. Jake is a pipe fitter and relies heavily on being able to bend and move around a great deal with his work. After dealing with neck and back pain, he decided to give us a call – he was referred to our office by several of his friends. When Jake came in, he could barely walk due to the amount of pain he was in and was unable to sleep through the night due to back pain. Dr. Amy recommended Jake come in to see us, 2x a week for 6 weeks.

After his Initial Care Plan, Jake was able to bend and take care of things at work without pain, was sleeping better and through the night, and even saw improvements in his sinuses, he reported. Another area of huge improvement was in Jake’s CORE Score which increased by almost 20 points. That’s awesome!

Jake said that he has really enjoys getting his spine adjusted (which he does on a maintenance level at this point) and he recommends Bergen Family Chiropractic to anyone he meets.  “I am so much more conscience of my posture now and constantly reminding myself to stand and sit up straight so I keep my spine in the best shape possible!”   – Jake D. – Practice member since 2016

Brette-Ashley & her daughter, Emerson pictured with Dr. Amy

How sweet is little Emerson?! Here’s her story..

When Emerson first came in, she could not look to the right at all. She was on Acid Reflux medication, had diarrhea, painful diaper rash, and she was waking up 5-7 times a night. Her mom, Brette-Ashley tried everything!

When Brette-Ashley heard about Chiropractic Care for these symptoms for her baby, she did not know what to expect… but has since told us about the AMAZING results. Within ONE adjustment she could look over her right shoulder (something she couldn’t do since birth) and within a few adjustments, she could freely look in both directions without discomfort or pain.  Her doctors took her off one of her Acid Reflux medications and she started sleeping more soundly at night. This transformation all happened in only a couple of weeks.

The most amazing part of this story, is that just by doing a few gentle adjustments to her spine to remove subluxations, Emerson’s body has become a powerhouse of HEALING from the inside out. Naturally.  – Practice members since 2000 (Brette-Ashley) & 2015 (Emerson)
