Michael McDonald, DC, CCEP – Chiropractic Physician

Dr. Michael McDonald had low back pain and a persistent knee injury in his mid 20’s. After consulting multiple doctors and specialists, he found his chiropractor to be the most helpful for him. His chiropractor educated him about the healing power of the human body. Chiropractic care not only helped him to be pain-free but also provided a greater capacity for him to do more for others.

Dr. McDonald’s personal experience had a profound effect upon him and helped him to decide to pursue a career as a chiropractor. he wants to be a doctor who provides that experience for his patients by educating them about the power of the human body and the benefits of chiropractic care.

As of July 2019, Dr. McDonald earned his Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner license. This means he has spent an additional 100+ hours learning how to more accurately diagnose and treat conditions that affect the TMJ, ribs, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles, and feet.
