Meridian HealthCare this week announced the hiring of Dr. Michael Cafaro, a chiropractic specialist. Cafaro has more than 16 years of experience treating individuals with chronic pain and musculoskeletal system issues. Before joining Meridian, he owned a private practice in Mineral Ridge. “I’m excited to join the Meridian team,” Cafaro says. “They have a great medical team and I look forward to not only continuing to serve my current patients and the community, but also focusing my chiropractic services on helping those struggling with an addiction or mental health issue.” Cafaro’s experience and expertise will allow Meridian to expand the services currently offered to patients. Chiropractic care can benefit patients struggling with a mental health or addiction issue by helping to decrease cravings for drugs or alcohol, decrease depression and anxiety. It also can improve mental performance, lower cortisol levels and provide another option to treat chronic pain. “Meridian is very fortunate to add Dr. Cafaro and his expertise to our healthcare team,” says Meridian CEO Larry Moliterno. “Having the option to provide Chiropractic services for our patients is something we have been wanting to do for some time and Dr. Cafaro is the perfect fit.”
