History, Techniques, and Specialties

Clinic History

Established in 1985, Greenwood Chiropractic Clinic and Dr. Michael Arsheed have been delivering quality and effective chiropractic care to the North Seattle communities. Our approach is simple: We believe that health is among our most valuable possessions.

While we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold:

  1. Relief Care
    When many people seek care in our clinic, they have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations: *Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem, *Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible, *Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery, and *Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care.
  2. Wellness Care
    We encourage our patients to achieve the highest levels of health they can through Chiropractic and natural healing methods. Wellness care focuses on keeping ahead of issues before they cause pain (prevention), as well as maintains strength and mobility post-symptomatic correction.


We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on the results of your spinal/wellness exam, x-ray findings, our judgment and over 30 years of experience.

The primary adjustment techniques we use include:

  • The Thompson Technique
  • Gonstead Approach
  • Activator Method and Other Percussion Instrumentation
  • Diversified Manipulation
  • The Palmer Package (if you want to be specific!).

Each methodology adds benefits to each specific case and adds value to the holistic approach used by Dr. Michael. As a graduate of the elite Sherman College of Chiropractic, you can rest assured that Dr. Michael is up-to-date on all the latest and greatest technologies in Chiropractic Care and employs each technique that will benefit your condition.


Greenwood Chiropractic Clinic utilizes 5 distinct therapies along with your adjustment at each visit. These therapies are spinal traction, hydrotherapy, acupressure, myovision, and percussion instruments. For those patients who have acute or chronic low back issues, we offer spinal decompression therapy on the LORDEX machine. Additionally, Greenwood Chiropractic Clinic offers a full range of massage therapy, orthopedic supplies, neck-specific pillows, nutritional vitamins and hormone creams, each designed to be inexpensive options available to our patients who need them.
