Meet The Staff
Dr. Matt Michaud - Chiropractor
Dr. Matt Michaud
A native of western New York, Matt is a former hockey player who spent 15 years on the ice. He sought chiropractic care for himself 20 years ago after injuring his back while working out which led to difficulty breathing and moving. After being treated by a Chiropractor he recovered from his injury quickly but the adjustments allowed his body to also adapt to allergic responses to hay fever and pollen. That was the last time he has had medication in his body.
The positive experience he had with chiropractic care inspired and influenced him to become a Chiropractor himself. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2003 from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic which was founded by the B. D. Palmer, the father of chiropractic care.
One of Dr. Matt’s favorite aspects of his career is being able to watch his patients, who have had their pain written off as hopeless by other medical professionals, regain their health, strength and essentially their lives.
He enjoys helping families live healthy lives with a wellness approach to living and truly making a difference within his community.

The Office Greeter
A five year old Golden, Gus is the glue that holds it all together. You can always count on a warm smile, happy tail, and possibly peanut butter breath. There is a treat jar with his name on it and he is not ashamed to encourage patients to slip him snacks when no one is looking. His kind heart and loving soul soothes you at the end of a long day and makes kids smile as they snuggle him while waiting to see Dr. Matt.
