Chiropractor Arlington TX Michael Hughes Meet The Team

Co-C.E.O. And Chiropractor

Michael Hughes D.C., Co-C.E.O.

Dr. Michael Hughes has been transforming lives since his graduation from Parker Chiropractic University in 2002. Personally recruited to the institution by the late Dr. Jim Parker, Dr. Michael perpetuates Dr. Parker's legacy by applying the Parker principles in his practice.

Upon completing his undergraduate studies at Utah Valley University, Dr. Michael honed his skills at Parker University, where he set an unprecedented record by attracting more public internship patients than anyone had in the previous decade. Dr. Michael runs thriving practices in Arlington, Texas, Loveland, Colorado, and Greeley, Colorado, specializing in neurological family chiropractic care, pediatrics, pre-and post-natal care, and Spinal Decompression.

Countless patient testimonials and case studies bear witness to 'chiropractic miracles' under Dr. Michael's care, particularly for those who had previously been told by other healthcare providers that nothing more could be done for them. His clinics are the last ray of hope for many, and he doesn't take that responsibility lightly.

His commitment to education extends beyond his practices; Dr. Michael conducts corporate luncheons and workshops almost every week to educate the public on proper health. As a passionate advocate for professional growth, he consistently exceeds state-required continuing education credits year over year.

His clinics act as Satellite Internship Clinics for two prestigious chiropractic colleges-Parker University in Dallas, Texas, and Life University in Marietta, Georgia. Additionally, Dr. Michael serves as a Certified Affiliate Faculty Member. This unique position turns Dr. Michael's clinics into a hive of learning and innovation, welcoming a steady stream of interns and doctors eager to absorb his proven techniques and philosophies.

He holds pivotal roles in various chiropractic associations, including serving as a board member for the Colorado Chiropractic Association and as the District Leader for Northern Colorado Chiropractors, and is a member of the Greeley Chiropractic Association. His relentless dedication to the profession was recently acknowledged through a significant honor: a joint nomination with his brother, Dr. David Hughes, for the prestigious CCA Champion of the Year Award by the Colorado Chiropractic Association. Such recognition, an embodiment of excellence and contribution, speaks volumes of the esteem in which Dr. Michael is held by peers, staff, and the countless patients he has transformed. Alongside his clinical expertise, his authorial ventures and mentorship for the next generation of chiropractors underscore his commitment to a legacy of holistic health.

His commitment to philanthropy is exemplified through his non-profit organization, the Gateway to Wellness Foundation, which assists individuals facing medical or financial hardships, as well as service members.

Dr. Michael also trained extensively with the legendary Dr. Ron Dahl, integrating light-touch techniques into his practice for exceptional patient results.

With an unwavering commitment, Dr. Michael actively educates the public on alternatives to invasive and costly medical procedures, emphasizing the body's innate ability to heal. His long-term vision includes expanding his practices throughout the Colorado Front Range and the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The personal touch in Dr. Michael clinics comes from a committed family effort. Alongside him, his high school sweetheart and wife, Shari along with their five daughters - Jordan, Mallorie, Averi, Emmi, and Ella - contribute to the practice, ensuring a warm and personalized experience for every patient.

Dr. Michael is not just a chiropractor; he is a lifeline for many and a beacon in the chiropractic community, representing a perfect blend of clinical expertise, community involvement, and educational advocacy.
