Lakewood Chiropractor | Dr. Michael Russell
I Was A Skeptic Of Chiropractic Care
Ever since I can remember, I was always a skeptic – of western medicine that is! The idea of a drug or an over the counter medication to cover up a symptom didn’t make sense to me. Combining that thought with an interest in athletics, the human frame and science, a holistic approach to health and wellness through Chiropractic seemed like a natural fit. Actually, chiropractic was first introduced to me when I became a patient for treatment for my low back injury sustained playing basketball in high school. From there, the beginnings of my career path began to take shape.
In the fall of 1994, I began attending Furman University in Greenville, SC, earning a bachelor’s degree in Health and Exercise Science. Soon after graduation I headed for Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Mo, where I earned my Doctorate of Chiropractic in April of 2002. Logan College gave me the skills and confidence to return to Lakewood to start my own practice and begin helping patients of all ages reach their optimal health potential.
Outside Of Our Lakewood Practice
Away from the practice, I enjoy spending time with my wife Nicole, and three children, Alexandria, Cooper and Calvin. I enjoy traveling, outdoor activities (especially running), sports, and playing golf. To compliment our active lifestyles, each member of our family receives regular chiropractic care and daily whole food supplements. In addition to our holistic approach to health, we also attempt to protect and preserve the planet with a “green” approach to daily living.
