Meet the Doctor

  Dr. Michael Darr D.C

One of the nuances with chiropractors is listening to their stories of why they became a chiropractor. Mine was life-changing that struck me like a bolt of lightning that aroused me from a deep sleep. But let's be very clear about one thing, it is NOT because my granddad, dad, two uncles, and older brother were all chiropractors. You see, when I was a junior in high school I learned in an advanced physiology class that the nervous system is the master system of the body. It keeps everything else working. This explains why growing up when I asked Dad for an adjustment he asked, "what is bothering you?" I would sometimes reply, "headache" or "stomach ache". He then said, "let's give you a headache (or stomach) adjustment". He was actually taking care of the nerves that controlled what was ailing me. That night at 2:00 AM I had a vision of curing the world without drugs or surgery! What an incredible miracle! I have never been the same!  And today, I am still living that dream.

I was an Altar Boy and became an Eagle Scout in my early days. While at St. Joe's High School and BGSU I wrestled, played soccer, and performed in the theater. In 1982 (the year after graduating from chiropractic college) Jo Anne and I were married. She has been a tremendous partner of mine both at home taking care of our three daughters and at critical times helping in the office.

Our second daughter Alli, teaches 4th & 5th grade math & science at a private school in Columbus. And our youngest, Stephanie is working towards her master's degree in psychology. Yes, the Lord has blessed us abundantly.
In my free time I like staying busy: tinkering around the house, training for triathlons or a marathon, camping in the summer, skiing in the winter, lifting weights and helping out at our church social committee activities. That's enough about me. I sincerely look forward to meeting you, discovering your interests, likes, dislikes and hoping I can help make your desires/goals a reality for you.

Just call me at 440-835-8484. I take the time to listen because I care!
