Dr. Mike and Alanna – Our Story

Dr. Mike and Family

“You never know how far reaching something you think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow” – BJ Palmer

In 2009, Mike was suffering from poor sleep and their son, Cohen, had major digestive issues and was “the sick kid.” We were looking for a solution for both of their problems and had been disappointed with the answers we had received.

Mike’s friend, Sinan, had referred him to his chiropractor, Dr. James, in St Charles, IL. It didn’t make much sense that a chiropractor would be of any assistance to our son that had just gotten over swine flu and pneumonia at the same time. It made even less sense that he could help him go to the bathroom regularly. Regardless of Alanna’s skepticism…they went.

What is the True Meaning of Health?

As a prospective patient, Alanna remember’s sitting through a group talk called “The Doctor’s Report”, and bawling her eyes out. She had been trying her best to take care of Cohen and had decided that he was just genetically prone to being sick. During the Doctor’s report James asked “What is the true meaning of health?” As a self-proclaimed health-nut and certified personal trainer her hand shot up to answer with “the absence of disease.” James responded by correcting her and explaining that the answer is in the word itself. True health is expressed as the body’s ability to HEAL. He then went on to explain how Chiropractic is the best way to remove the interference that keeps our bodies from healing. Obviously, they became patients and immediately dove head first into learning all they could. Cohen’s digestive problems cleared immediately following his first adjustment and have never again been an issue.

Dr James welcomed us to learn more, invited us to educational workshops, and even let us tag along to a chiropractic seminar in Florida. Needless to say…they were sold.


ADIO is actually an acronym and stands for:

A – Above
D – Down
I – Inside
O – Out

This is the principle that drives us to do what we do. It is the sole reason that Dr Mike decided to quit his job as a medical device specialist and go back to school. He wanted something more in life and wanted to make a significant difference in the lives of others.

ADIO means that your body was intelligently and beautifully designed. It was created with the ability to heal and live life to the fullest. This is most apparent when looking at a newborn; they are so perfect and have so much potential to become something incredible. We were all born to be well! Somewhere along the way many people seem to lose hope.

There is Always Hope

Regardless of the past or your current health concerns, there is always hope. We have created a culture within our office that allows our practice members the ability to dream again! For some members a dream might be to walk up a flight of stairs, for others it could be completing an Ironman, getting rid of allergies or helping a son or daughter come off of ADHD medication and be able to make friends.

Chiropractic is a unique profession and we are blessed to be a part of it!

We look forward to you joining us in our mission to create a culture of true HEALth for the community of Boulder!

Welcome to the ADIO Health Family!

Be well,

Dr. Mike and Alanna
