Meet Junction City Chiropractor Dr. Morris and his staff
Dr. Michael Morris is a Kansas board-licensed Chiropractic Physician.
Dr. Morris has been in private practice for 23 years and has practiced in Junction City since 1986.
Dr. Morris graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri in 1983. He first practiced in Green Bay, Wisconsin before returning to Kansas.
Dr. Morris has been married to his wife Karen, who is the office manager, for 27 years. They have 4 children and 1 grandchild.
Dr. Morris became interested in spinal health care through chiropractic after a college gymnastic injury while attending Fort Hays State University. He states, “ I was learning a new dismount from the horizontal bar and I landed upside down on the back of my head and neck with my legs and knees coming down around my face. At first I was just sore, but as the weeks went by I started having low back pain, neck pain and headaches. The headaches and neck pain become worse. The low back pain became very intense and developed into sciatic pain down both legs. It got so bad I was walking bent over and taking very slow steps. I felt like a little old man-but I was only 19 years old.
During summer vacation I returned home to Olathe. My family doctor had me taking pain killers, muscle relaxers and going to physical therapy 3 times per week. After 6 weeks there was no change. He then sent me to the “top” orthopedic surgeon in Kansas City. After his examination and multitude of tests he told me he couldn’t find anything wrong, but he would do spinal exploratory surgery to try to help me with the pain. His prognosis: I would never be able to do gymnastics again. I would be lucky to be able to walk without pain. I told him I would think about it and shuffled out of the office as fast as I could.
During all this time one of my family members had been trying to get me to see his chiropractor. After seeing what little help and relief the medical profession was offering me, I decided to make an appointment with the chiropractor.
After the doctor of chiropractic preformed the examination and took the spinal x-ray needed he scheduled me for a report to discuss his findings and give his recommendations. During the report he explained and showed me how I had jammed and twisted many of my spinal bones out of their normal position from the fall. He also explained how these joints and the spinal nerves were causing the different pain and symptoms I was having.
He began a treatment of spinal adjustments to unlock these joints and to realign the spinal vertebra. Some other spinal therapy was used to help get me out of pain faster. Within 10 weeks of starting chiropractic care I was again able to do gymnastics. Not only was I able to walk without pain, my neck and headaches were gone. I responded so well I was able to be honored as the 11th best gymnast on the horizontal bar in the NAIA national championships that year.
Chiropractic spinal health care changed my life. I also changed my college major from physical education (gymnastics coach) to classes to complete pre-med and entered chiropractic college.”
Dr. Morris also has taken post graduate training in human wellness nutrition and advanced training in acupuncture. This allows him to treat many conditions that may not be spinal related.
Chiropractic care is effective and safe for patients of any age. Dr. Morris relates, “I have treated infants who have had a hard delivery or who have been dropped or fallen. These traumas can produce pain for the child the same as an adult, but usually manifested as colic or prolonged crying for unknown reasons. This can also cause problems lifting or controlling the head. I have treated patients as old as 96 years for multiple pains and symptoms and all ages in between.
