From a very young age, Mike Presser knew he wanted to help people in some way.
Then, while in college at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, the 2009 Poynette native and PHS graduate found out what capacity she would be able to provide this help with: chiropractic care.
It was during college that he met a chiropractor, which led him to the decision to join this field.
“At first, I always knew I wanted to help people,” Dr. Presser said. “Then I met a chiropractor at university. I overshadowed him and saw miracles happening in his office. That inspired me and made me want to be a part of it. “
Now, Presser is starting the most recent chapter of his life, as he recently opened his own business: Pure Wellness Chiropractic. The doors of his clinic opened on May 17th. Presser will start as the only chiropractor, hoping to join his practice in the future.
“I decided to make that leap,” Presser said of opening his own business, which will focus on prenatal, pediatric and family welfare care.
“I thought now was the time to do everything and help as many people as I can,” he added.
Presser also suffered his own struggles with injuries while playing football in college.
“I had a hip injury,” Presser said. “It simply came to our notice then. He was always in pain and about twenty years old. I just thought it was normal and not a big deal. All “no pain, no gain,” saying … there could be no worse statement. “
After the injury, Presser had hope in everything the doctors told him to do. According to his biography on the Pure Wellness Chiropractic website, he was given pills, underwent physical therapy and stretching, and even had surgery.
Still, none of that made Presser feel completely healthy.
“I was totally disbelieving, I could never say even once that I felt 100% and that I often had unbearable pain,” he states. “A year later, I met an amazing chiropractor and decided to start care. Upon arrival, I was totally disbelieved as I watched as patient and patient came in and out of the doctors practice because everyone was leaving happy. This was something I had never seen or experienced with doctor visits. “
He claims it was the day he discovered a true, natural and healthy healthcare profession where both the doctor and the patients were happy.
“I couldn’t believe what I was experiencing, I was talking to people who were excited and happy to be in the doctor’s office,” the post continues. “Parents brought their children and adjusted to help them with all kinds of health problems. The best part is that everyone was happy and got amazing results. That day changed my life forever. I decided to become a specific chiropractor, no matter how difficult it was to do so. It was so incredibly different from everything else I had experienced that it inspired and attracted me. “
In addition to focusing on prenatal and pediatric care, Presser’s practice will also specialize in back, shoulder and neck pain, as well as sciatica and headache problems, sports, work and personal injuries.
“It’s something I’ve wanted to do all my life,” Presser said of setting up his own business. “My only regret is that I didn’t do it before.”
Presser graduated from UW-Oshkosh with a bachelor of science degree in biology, with an emphasis in healthcare business. He then received his Ph.D. in chiropractic from Davenport, Palmer College of Chiropractic, Iowa, in 2018.
“While (at Palmer), I was exposed to the best doctors and mentors in the profession, which I’m very grateful for,” Presser’s biography says. “Since my freshman year at Palmer College of Chiropractic, I have continued to develop my education in family wellness care.”
Presser is also a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), the largest pediatric association in the profession. He has practiced where he grew up and made the decision to stay in the Madison area when he chose to open his own clinic.
“My passion for pediatric and family well-being has taken me across the country to serve the Madison community to the fullest,” Presser’s biography said.
Presser chose to specialize in prenatal and pediatric care because he saw first hand what he was doing. His wife, Jackie, underwent chiropractic treatments while she was pregnant with the couple’s one-year-old daughter, who has also continued to receive her own treatments since she was born. Mike said he and Jackie had questions from family, friends and others about the process.
“There were a lot of positive benefits,” Mike Presser said. “It simply came to our notice then. He took my wife. ”
What most impressed the Pressers was how it all translated when it came time for Jackie to give birth to her daughter.
“Early jobs usually last longer (than any future work),” Presser said. “It took less than three hours from the time she broke my wife’s water until she gave birth to the baby.”
Presser knew now was the right time to begin his practice, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic across the country. Presser said he had absolutely no qualms about going through the process to start his business when he did.
“(The pandemic) added some challenges, but there were no doubts,” he said. “It simply came to our notice then. I wanted to provide help and support to people. I know I’m helping people live healthier and happier. I kept that at my core. “
According to the page of his biography on his website, throughout his practice, he has listened to patients tell him how chiropractic care has been a miraculous cure, which has positively impacted everyone around him.
“Every day, the results we get in the office through specific chiropractic care amaze me and I make it my mission as a chiropractor to present myself every day, dedicated to bringing hope and results to you and your families,” he says. Press. “You deserve it. Your kids deserve it. We all deserve specific wellness chiropractic care.”
