Dr. Mike Smith is a Chiropractic Physician, Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP), and Primary Spine Practitioner (PSP). As a sports chiropractor, he specializes in the treatment and rehabilitation of acute and chronic muscle, bone, and joint-related pain and injury. He works with clients – whether it’s a professional athlete, active individual, or an office worker – who want to be out of pain in the short term and have the tools to stay out of pain in the long term
Dr. Smith received his B.S. degree from Indiana University in Biology and his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic West (PCCW) in San Jose, CA. While at PCCW he was appointed President of the renowned PCCW Sports Council and served as the Student President/Liaison of the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council.
Since graduating from chiropractic school, Dr. Smith has been certified in Graston Technique, Active Release Technique, and Functional Movement Taping (kinesiology tape), which are the leading soft-tissue diagnostic and treatment protocols that deal with overuse strain so common in today’s society.
Dr. Smith is certified as a Primary Spine Practitioner through the University of Pittsburgh’s distinguished School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. PSPs acknowledge that back and spine related pain is often complex and confusing. With not enough hours in the day and even more options to choose from, it’s very hard to know where you need to start. PSPs are ideally suited to manage patients as a portal of entry practitioners for spinal related disorders – managing most clients without the need for a referral but coordinating that care when necessary. Simply, if you have back pain, talk to us. Dr. Smith and his team are extensively trained to ensure his clients get well efficiently and avoid wasting time and resources on any unnecessary procedures and medications.
Dr. Smith’s focus on rehabilitation, functional training, and corrective exercise in combination with his soft tissue therapy and chiropractic care are essential for the success of his patients. Everyone, from the Weekend Warrior and working professional to the mom and dad who want to play with their kids and – when they have a minute – exercise without pain, will benefit from Dr. Smith’s functional approach to care. Helping patients understand their bodies and develop the tools to feel great long term is Dr. Smith’s passion.
Dr. Smith is originally from Crown Point, Indiana, a suburb of Chicago. While in high school he lettered in multiple sports, including football, basketball, and track. He moved to Seattle to marry his best friend, Stephanie. He and Stephanie love exploring the Pacific Northwest with their two children, Scarlett and Matthew.
