Dr. Michael Jefferson joined The Joint Chiropractic’s network of healthcare providers in 2018 with his arrival at the Gardens Square Center clinic. Dr. J, as his patients call him, received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Florida Atlantic University and his doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
“The thing I love about chiropractic is that I get to be that doctor that I always envisioned how a doctor should be,” Dr. J says. “The other thing I love is that the structure of the body determines the function of the body, and I get to fix the structure of the body.”
Born in Philadelphia, he moved to Tamarac when he was 4. He taught high school science in Orlando for three years and then Kissimmee before spending most of his career in the local region, including Weston, Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach.
In his spare time, Dr. J says he enjoys studying soft tissue, clinical anatomy, and healing techniques. “I also love training my wife in the gym,” he says.
Dr. J got confirmation that he had pursued the right career path shortly after he began his first job.
“I wanted to be a chiropractor so bad,” he says. “I just knew it was for me, so I just went for it. But I really knew I made the right decision my first week of practice when I popped a patient’s elbow back in place. She was so happy that she went into the lobby and just started crying.
“I actually got into trouble for helping this patient out too fast and not dragging out the treatment. Too bad for that clinic. I was hooked. My goal was to fix patients as fast as possible. If you want to see how fast, make an appointment.”
Chiropractic is Dr. J’s passion, and he is happy to be part of The Joint family in Miami Gardens.
“I like working at The Joint because they don’t put a limit on how fast or good I can be,” he says. “In some offices, they frown on being too good. They want to extend that insurance money as long as possible. We don’t accept insurance at The Joint so that’s not an issue here.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. J says the one thing he always keeps in his refrigerator is orange juice “due to the energy it gives. To do this job for nine hours a day, you need a lot of energy.”
If he could bring together any four celebrities for the ideal dinner party, Dr. J would bring together Tony Robbins, “the greatest life coach on the planet, in my opinion”; Noel Batten, “probably the best autoimmune therapist on the planet”; Dr. Joe Dispenza, “a neuroscientist and chiropractor who introduced a variety of techniques that let you manifest things fast”; and Wim Hof, “an extreme athlete who created a technique that will give you total control over your mind, instantly.”
“That would be the perfect dinner party,” Dr. J says. “I like people who bring practical things to the healthcare field, either mentally or physically, things people can do to instantly help themselves.”
The coolest thing Dr. J has done, he says, “was to get my physician license in the United States. It is such an honor to do this. When you make an appointment with me, you see a person that is perfectly happy with what he does.”
