Paving the Path to Healthcare
Like many chiropractors, Michael became interested in his profession based on personal experiences. His first visit to a chiropractor was with his mother when he was eight years old. Dr. Milbauer’s parents often sought natural health care options, which had a significant influence on him. As he grew up, Michael was often in charge of stacking and rearranging the woodpile at home. After several rounds of hauling firewood logs, he began to experience back pain. After that, he went for a visit to the chiropractor which quickly relieved his pain, and Michael valued the ‘drugless’ approach and the physical nature of the treatment – he was hooked!
