Dr. Michael Pound with Traverse Health

Dr. Michael Pound

What is your background and how did you develop the skills to start your business?

“Lots of schooling and years of practice! I do more continuing education outside my profession than in because I love learning!”

What inspires your work and what sets you apart from other chiropractors?

“I look to serve first…when I approach patient care, I listen not to just what patients tell me, but how they tell me. I specialize in getting to the root of the problem, and after working in a pain management clinic with a Stanford anesthesiologist, and interviewing hundreds of doctors and health professionals on my podcast (Heal Better Fast Podcast), I’ve learned a lot about how to interpret pain. I feel most inspired when I am able to serve others by helping them live pain free lives!”

What’s the nicest thing a customer has ever said to you about your products/service?

“I started going to see Dr. Pound while I was pregnant with my second daughter for Symphysis Pubis Pain. I had a doctor that wasn’t pro chiro for the first pregnancy and my second OB was. I was so desperate for pain relief that I would try anything! He helped me so incredibly much and helped me deal with that daily horrific pain that I had. I was able to enjoy so much more of my pregnancy than before. Also, after birth, my pubis healed so much faster than without the chiro care. We are still seeing him to this day 2 years later!”
