Austin C. Myers, MD is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He graduated from Ross University School of Medicine in Portsmouth, Dominica and completed his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency training at East Carolina University / Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, NC.
As he started pre-med courses, Austin was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. While he knew he wanted to pursue a degree in medicine before his diagnosis, that year of treatments just helped solidify his decision. Now, as a 17 year cancer survivor, he is passionate about making a difference in people’s lives.
Dr. Myers has enjoyed living and practicing in Pocatello, and brings some unique skills to the practice, including interventional spine procedures, electrodiagnostics, multiple interventional treatments for back pain, peripheral joint pain, and musculoskeletal problems. Some of these procedures include genicular nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablation for chronic knee pain, occipital nerve blocks, and ultrasound guided injections. He also specializes in Botox therapy for spasticity (adult and pediatric), chronic migraines, blepharospasm, torticollis, and cervical dystonia. In addition, Dr. Myers is now treating headaches and helps manage prosthetic care for amputees. He welcomes new patients and enjoys working with local providers to help patients maximize their function and make improvements in their activity.
Dr. Myers and his staff are incredible. They got me in quickly, and were very informative all along the way. Dr. Myers made sure to address all of my concerns and spent plenty of time asking questions to make sure he understood the entire situation. I would highly recommend this team to anyone.

My first visit to Dr, Meyers was very educational. He is a good listener, compassionate and was very thorough in the exam, and explained treatment plans at my level. The procedure went well and I had less discomfort than I expected. It has been 2 weeks since the procedure, and I am very pleased with the outcome.
Yes, I would recommend Dr. Myers to family and friends. He remained professional, worked quickly, and still made me feel comfortable. I actually enjoyed talking with him and learning more about his work and his work experiences. His compassion and ability to explain what was happening or going to happen helped my visit run more smoothly with a minimum of discomfort given the EMG electrical shock procedure.
