Dr. Meisten grew up in Montvale, New Jersey. Moved away to go to college at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, and graduated from there in 1996 with a degree in Adult Fitness. His earlier childhood dream was to have his own fitness center. After college he worked for the Fitness Company, which owned and managed 70 fitness clubs up and down the east coast. He worked at their facility in Newark, New Jersey for 2 1/2 years. During that time he was a fitness counselor, personal trainer, fitness director, and assistant manager.
While working for the company three of his fellow employees headed off to Life University to go to chiropractic school. His mentor kept in touch with him, and felt he would be a perfect candidate to go to chiropractic school. He knew Dr. Meisten thoroughly enjoys working with people and helping them attain their personal goals in the health and fitness industry. As his desire to have his own a fitness facility changed, and with much consideration, he decided to give chiropractic school a chance.
In September, 1998 his chiropractic journey began for him at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. He ended up transferring to Sherman College, in Spartanburg, South Carolina in January 2003, and graduated with a doctorate of chiropractic degree in 2004. He worked for several different chiropractors for several years in South Carolina and Georgia before becoming the proud owner of Carolina Health Innovations in August 2010.

Service Recipient Says
We appreciate the genuine concern for our well being from the staff. Techniques used are adapted to our personal needs not like that of an assembly line that we experienced in the past. The office is clean, friendly and happy. We always look forward to our visits.Suzanne Elkins
Choosing healthcare providers that are professional and caring can be a challenge. I've found Dr. Meisten to be a true professional in chiropractic services, while also providing patients a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. From the first visit, he took the time to assess my situation, including comprehensive X-rays and took the time to review and explain the X-rays.Sandra Hammack
Absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend Carolina Health Innovations and their entire staff to anyone and everyone. They are all very amazing at what they do, and I am no longer in pain since I’ve been a patient. They are also very supportive to veterans.Austin Smith
