Wellness At Every Stage

Everyday more people like you are becoming conscious about their health and well-being, and that of their children and/or family. VSC often times does not produce pain or discomfort until it has progressed to an advanced stage. This is more evident in our pediatric population. The most critical time in life to have an optimum performing nervous system is when the body is growing and developing. The Insight Subluxation Station has specific settings for infants and children. This technology helps me to identify these problems before they become symptomatic.

Offering World-Class Care

Professional athletes like Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong and Dan O'Brian - three time world champion and Olympic decathlon gold medallist - depend on their bodies and realize the important role their spine plays in allowing them to function at peak performance. I am very proud to be bringing the same level of technology that professional and world class athletes are using to my patients.

Because having a subluxation free spine and nervous system is an essential component of optimum health, my vision and mission is to serve the community by promoting optimum wellness and health.

What Our Patients Say

Been seeing Dr. Mike for a couple years now and he is wonderful! Can almost always fit me in and takes the time to get to know his patients and remember their issues and preferences. It's so nice to be known by name and not just by my file.
