At the end of 2009 a major discovery was made. Two patients came into the office with chronic low back pain. After learning that chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and passive therapies had all been unsuccessful in the past, Dr. Mike knew he had to be innovative. An adhesion was found within the Quadratus Lumborum muscle in the low back of both of the patients. Despite Dr. Mike’s best efforts to rub and massage the adhesion out, it was unsuccessful. A special electric tissue hammer was created which successfully disintegrated the adhesions, along with relieving the patients’ low back pain. Over the last 6 years, CaliSpine was developed and built upon through further research, numerous case studies, and hundreds of success stories, all of which resulted in the resolution of low back pain, even the worst of cases.

Dr. Mike has been completely immersed in the chiropractic and sports injury profession since the year 2000. He attended and received his doctorate degree from Palmer College, which is the most prestigious chiropractic college in the nation. During that time, Dr. Mike took special interest in sports injury & rehabilitation. He continued his education with Active Release Technique, Graston, Kinesiotaping, and Titleist Performance Institute along with working with several high school and collegiate sports teams. On his free time Dr. Mike loves spearfishing, jiu jitsu, Crossfit, and writing about himself in the third person.
