Dr. Carmichael graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in August 1982. He opened his Lakewood practice in 1983. He was right out of chiropractic school. While waiting to take his state licensing boards he taught aerobics at a Richard Simmons aerobic studio in Lakewood. It was there that he met many of his first patients. Dr. Carmichael inspired people to exercise and take care of their bodies. Of course part of taking care of your body is maintaining its structural integrity. As a result of his enthusiasm for health many of his students became patients. To this day he has many of those first patients in his practice.
The clinic's chiropractic lifestyle approach utilizes spinal adjustments to remove nerve irritation, which is the root cause of most problems treated in the clinic. Dr. Carmichael has always promoted exercise to strengthen the area around the corrected spinal misalignments. Getting patients to do this on their own was difficult. Thus an exercise rehab department was added. This gives the doctor a better chance to not only get patients to do their exercises, but to monitor their progress, and keep the exercise program changing appropriately. The nutrition segment of our wellness approach utilizes good eating guidance, nutritional supplementation and cleansing programs.
Carmichael Chiropractic is committed to servicing our patient’s needs. We will continue to endeavor to provide the highest quality health care possible. We look forward to the next twenty years at Carmichael Chiropractic. We hope you will be a part of it.
