Dr. Michael Arsheed has been a Seattle Chiropractor since 1984. After graduating from the premier college for Chiropractic Medicine, Sherman College of Chiropractic, on the East Coast, he traveled west and settled in Washington State. Dr. Michael continues his education in post- graduate studies focusing on Osteopathy, Auto Injury Care and Recovery, and Herniated/Bulging Disc problems with Sciatic nerve pain.
Dr. Michael was born in Rama, Israel, and came to this country to attend college. At the time, his undergraduate coursework was focused on a goal to attain a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and Chemistry, return to his country of origin and become a High School Science Teacher/Educator. As a senior, he was also working in a restaurant and began experiencing low back pain. He turned to various medical doctors and practitioners, only to find himself taking pain killers every day and not improving. One day, his doctor told him the only way to fix his problem was to have surgery. That’s when he began researching his options and found the gift of Chiropractic! From that moment on, he immediately switched colleges and began his new profession and passion. And as they say, the rest is history!
Dr. Michael is committed to assisting patients to achieve sustained pain relief, better health, and an improved life. Every treatment plan is tailored to the patient’s individual needs, specialized in producing the fastest results possible and inclusive of their response to care. Each patient will be supported through a specific treatment plan that often includes some degree of at-home care, such as stretching and heating, to purposefully speed the recovery time, strengthen joints and muscles and help prevent future injuries. Depending on your needs, Dr. Michael may suggest other forms of care or treatment, both in our clinic or refer you to other practitioners that may assist you. If Dr. Michael believes that chiropractic is not the correct care for you, he will suggest an alternative from an array of medical and non-medical providers for your review. We believe that health is one of our most valuable possessions and we are here to provide you with the relief and support you need on your path to great health!
When Dr. Michael is not working with his patients, he is with his family. Dr. Michael is a proud husband and father to 3 adult children. Perhaps you have been to one of his sons’ restaurants called Mr. Gyro’s located in Greenwood, Ballard and Wallingford. His youngest daughter is in college in Bellingham. Dr. Michael, his wife, and family eagerly await the birth of their first grandchildren, who are twins, due in the Spring of 2016.
