Dr. Ronald T. Michalski
Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dr. Ronald T. Michalski completed his undergraduate study at the University of Wisconsin. In 1976; he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Biology and in 1978 a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the National College of Chiropractic; in Lombard, Illinois. Dr. Michalski went forward to pursue his degree in Orthopedics; he then completed his post graduate study and became a board’s certified practitioner.
His certification allows for the specialization of: Bone, Muscle, Joint, Disc & Ligament
As well as other health conditions caused by a malfunctioning nervous system. He also holds a license to practice chiropractic in the State of New York. Dr. Michalski has over 32 years in practice and is one of the few doctors who have these sought after qualifications.
Dr. Michalski was listed as a Certified Second Opinion Examiner for the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association; performing independent medical examinations; where a dispute was reported either by chiropractors, insurance carriers, attorneys and patients for other doctors, at their request. While performing as a second opinion Examiner, Dr. Michalski received over 110 hours of impairment (disability) training. Because of his background in orthopedics and impairment rating he was invited to be a member of the Peer Review Committee for the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association. This panel of doctors and insurance lay person would review cases and render an opinion based on their combined experience and specialties.
During that same era he was asked by the Secretary of the Examining Board to be an examiner for the orthopedic portion of the chiropractic entrance examination to be licensed and practice Chiropractic in the state of Wisconsin. During this time frame the Second Opinion Examiners were re-titled as the Clinical Advisory Committee of the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association and it was their obligation to research new technology in the form of chiropractic technique and/or instrumentation, electronic or mechanical, and render a group opinion as to its efficacy as it relates to patient health and well being. This included valuable diagnostic instrumentation and physical modalities as in electrical muscle stimulation along with others. This information was then forwarded to the Board of Examiners for approval and ultimately was placed into state law statutes and made available to all chiropractors in the state of Wisconsin.

One of the adjustment techniques that Dr. Michalski uses is the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique. He has held an Advanced Proficiency Rating in this system of adjusting for over 19 years. This title requires annual re-certification with many class room hours which includes theory and practical application of the latest international research of this technique. (Activator doctors from around the world submit their viable technique developments to the headquarters and that in turn is compiled and formatted for the re-certification program.)
