Dr. Richard Omel has been in practice since 1984. After concluding his chiropractic training in Toronto, Canada, Dr. Omel resided in Canada for approximately 20 years before returning to his native state of Michigan in 2002. Over his years in practice he has focused on helping those who reach out to him to improve their overall health and well-being. He takes pride in sharing his practical knowledge of the human body and appropriate clinical skills in an effort to guide people through the various phases of their healing and restorative process.
Dr. Omel draws from a wide range of chiropractic manual therapies and body-movement awareness protocols; and couples them with advanced therapies such as acoustic compression therapy, laser, and non-surgical spinal decompression, resulting in a positive patient experience. He believes a successful treatment outcome is shared between the care directive proposed by the doctor and the accountability of the patient to follow these directives.
The ultimate goal is to help people restore and learn how to sustain a relatively higher level of health, well-being, and performance throughout their lives.
