Dr. Michael Fisher
Dr. Michael Fisher believes being a chiropractor is an amazing privilege and treating families is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. From helping infants with colic, the expectant mother who wants an easier birth experience, or the dad with chronic migraines, he enjoys serving the Gahanna community with his chiropractic care.
He grew up in Barnsville, Ohio. He received regular chiropractic care from a very young age, and his mother recalls that he started talking about becoming a chiropractor even then. In his family, going to the chiropractor was as commonplace as going to the dentist!! After high school he attended Ohio Valley University in West Virginia on a baseball scholarship, and then went on to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2007 from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis.
He has post-graduate training in pre-natal (Webster) care, pediatrics and activator adjusting techniques. He uses Active Release Technique (a muscle and soft tissue technique), Kinesiology Taping and Pierce Adjusting Technique in his daily practice.
Dr. Fisher believes he can be an integral part of your family’s total health care team. His experience in athletics, education, and professional practice helps him to craft treatment plans to achieve optimal health and function, and to improve the quality of life for his patients.
He lives in Gahanna with his amazing wife Whitney, son, Cole and daughter, Caroline. In addition to practicing chiropractic, he is a certified baseball umpire, enjoys exercising, spending as much time with his wife and kids as possible, and of course, OSU football!
Dr. Michelle Adkins
Dr. Michelle Adkins began her own chiropractic journey when she was in high school after an injury playing soccer. She was under care for a couple months and then got better so only went as needed. When she went away for college, she got a few other health issues and discovered that chiropractic care is the only thing that made her feel better. She realized when she went frequently, she did not have the same aches and pains, and actually felt healthier overall. That is when she decided that it was her goal to become a chiropractor and to have the ability to help those of all ages achieve better health.
Dr. Adkins grew up in Frazeysburg, Ohio. She earned degrees at West Liberty University, and Palmer College of Chiropractic-Florida. While at Palmer, she got advanced training in pediatric low force techniques, soft tissue modalities, and instrument adjusting. She has a post- grad certification in pre-natal care with the Webster technique, and is working on becoming certified in the Activator Methods Technique.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband Thomas and dog Buddy, binging Netflix shows, watching sports (Go Bucks!), and spending time with the rest of her family, including her two adorable nephews, that she barely got to see when living in NC.
Dr. Adkins enjoys treating patients of all ages! She is excited to be a part of the Creekside Chiropractic team in serving the community of Gahanna, and becoming a part of your health journey!
Dr. Fisher and I strive to provide you and your family the most comprehensive chiropractic and rehabilitative care for optimal musculoskeletal health. Treatment plans are crafted with your unique health care needs in mind.
