Michael Schultz, D.C.
A native of Washington State, Dr. Schultz grew up on a farm in Eastern Washington. He became interested in studying to be a chiropractor through the experience of being a patient with sports injuries and also seeing how chiropractic care helped his brother recover from a serious climbing accident. The benefits and results left him wanting to learn how to help others in this same way.
Dr. Schultz received his chiropractic degree from the University of Western States in Portland, OR. Due to his own history and interest in sports he enjoys working with athletes, helping them to play at their best by treating their injuries and bringing them to optimal health. He treats all of his patients with the goal of full body health, not just pain reduction or increasing function. Dr. Schultz works to educate his patients on how to prevent future injuries, as well as how to live a healthier life.

Begin Your Journey To Better Health
The word "Chiropractic" is derived from the Greek words "cheir" (hand) and "praktos" (done) combined to mean "done by hand." It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
