Dr Michael Poulsen (DC)
Hi, I’m Michael and I hail from Brisbane, Australia, where my chiropractic journey started at just 3 days old.
My parents understood the importance of the nervous system, its relationship to health and healthy development of a growing child. As I was growing up I noticed that being regularly checked by my family chiropractor meant that I didn’t have as many sick days as many of my classmates. I also felt like it improved my concentration at school and gave me a bit of an edge on the sports field. As I enjoy my sports I loved that!
Although at the age of 15 I didn’t really fully understand what chiropractic was, I decided that when I finished school I would travel to Auckland and start studying to become a chiropractor. I had heard such great things about the College and knew if I was going to be a chiropractor that was where I wanted to learn.
Along my journey at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic I have gained first-hand experience on how the nervous system relates to the overall function of the body and how chiropractic can change and empower people to get their health back and live up to their optimum health.
During my time at the college I developed a strong passion for helping athletes of various sports with athletic performance and injury prevention. I am currently completing my ICCSP qualification with the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic, so I can develop this area of interest further.
In my spare time I love to be outdoors enjoying the beach, cycling, running, surfing, gym and generally anything that is going to keep me fit and healthy. I’m a huge sports fan and a soccer diehard so I’ll take any opportunity I can to watch a game.
My mission is to empower and inspire people of all ages to improve their health and get the most out of a life they love living.
