Michael Atkinson, D.C., B.C.A.O.
Dr. Michael Atkinson is passionate about getting and keeping sick people well without the use of drugs or surgery. He firmly believes it is much easier to keep you well than it is to get you well.
Dr. Atkinson earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1990 from Life University in Marietta, Georgia and joined Fiorini Chiropractic Center in 1994, after working as an associate doctor in Jacksonville for 3 1/2 years.
Dr. Atkinson has advanced training in conservative treatment of the spine and extremities including the Atlas Orthogonal treatment of craniocervical (upper neck) misalignments. He has also done advanced study in sports related injuries, as well as motor vehicle crash treatments and rehabilitation.
Although every patient that gets care at Fiorini Chiropractic is special, his favorite type of patient care is helping those who suffer from chronic headaches. The Atlas Orthogonal treatment is very effective in managing chronic headaches, even typically resistant migraine types.
Dr. Atkinson is the co-author of 3 books on neck pain and wellness.
