Dr. Mike Nunez became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2019 when he began serving residents in the Atlanta area, where he continues doing the work he finds so gratifying.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is the ability to help others with a holistic paradigm,” he says. “It’s rewarding to help others understand that the body is a self-healing organism and to help patients reach their full potential.”
Dr. Mike, as his patients call him, is a product of Southern California and worked previously in the San Gabriel Valley and Huntington Beach. It was in SoCal where his Uncle Eddie “taught me about the holistic approach to living a balanced life.”
Dr. Mike’s wife is from Laos, has a large family, and loves to cook. They have a son and daughter, and enjoy camping and “getting outside to enjoy the nature that is so abundant here in Georgia.”
He attended Mt. San Antonio College, and New College in Whittier, Calif., and got a degree in health science before getting a doctorate from Life Chiropractic College West.
“I was visiting with my uncle in San Diego when he introduced me to chiropractic when I was 17 years old and I have never been the same,” Dr. Mike says. “It was not until I reached Life College that I understood the validation of my own experience with the healing arts.
“Growing up, there are so many emotional experiences that can be overwhelming, and chiropractic helped me deal with the stress of change.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Mike says there’s one condiment that he always keeps stocked in his kitchen: “Hot sauce is always ready to be used on my wife’s great cooking.”
One of the greatest experiences of Dr. Mike’s life was a visit to the nation’s capital, where he visited the Lincoln Memorial. “It showed me the power of someone that never gives up even though you fail once or twice,” he says.
The last book that Dr. Mike read was The Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman. “It was a great inspiration that helped me see things that were deeper in meaning about everyone we meet: teachers,” he says.
If you’re ever looking for advice from Dr. Mike, it’s pretty simple: Don’t give up. “We meet people along our journey who may not be what we expect,” he says, “but our higher source is always giving us a way out.”
