Meet Dr. Manuel M. Mendez
As I grew up in Miami, I’ve always had a great interest in health care. At the age of 19, I started working at the South Florida Blood Bank while simultaneously attending college. In 1982, I obtained my degree as a medical technologist and started working at Mercy Hospital. I first learned about chiropractic when a family member injured themselves. Amazed by the incredible results chiropractic care can have on the human body, I re-entered the scholastic world at Life Chiropractic College (or Life University as of 1989) in Marietta, GA. After graduating, I practiced in Nashville before moving to East Tennessee and helping manage the Back Pain Chiropractic Clinics in Clinton, Oak Ridge, and North Knoxville. Eventually in 1993, I took ownership of the North Knoxville location and renamed it Mendez Chiropractic Center.
