Dr. Michael D. Weber D.C., ART has been practicing Chiropractic care for over 20 years. Dr. Weber attended Northwestern College of Chiropractic, AKA Northwestern Health Sciences University, from 1986-1990, where he received his Doctorate degree in Chiropractic.
After graduating, Dr. Weber opened Lead Chiropractic Clinic in 1990 where he was the sole chiropractic physician in the clinic. In 1995 he changed locations and moved to Spearfish, SD. There he opened Weber Chiropractic, PC, more recently known as Body Works Inc... Dr. Weber is still seeing many of his patients from Lead/Deadwood and has acquired many more patients in and outside of the surrounding area.
Dr. Weber treats patients suffering from all types of conditions. Patients with crippling disabilities have come in with little or no hope and after receiving treatment have realized great improvement and progress in their conditions. Some of the conditions Dr. Weber is known for treating are chronic neck pain, headaches, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, chronic lower back pain, loss of range of motion, stiffness, tightness, and many more.
Many of his patients cannot find relief anywhere else. Dr. Weber receives referrals from doctors in the medical field that cannot help their patients. He sees patients from out of state that have to drive many hours to receive a treatment, returning home the same day.
In 2002 Dr. Weber studied and trained with Dr. Michael Leahy the developer of Active Release Techniques, ART. ART is a medically patented soft-tissue technique used to treat conditions associated with scar tissue adhesions, nerve entrapments, and muscles, tendons, and ligaments. As an ART provider, Dr. Weber uses his hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. He then treats the abnormal tissues by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Dr. Weber was invited to treat the athletes at the 2003 IRONMAN World Championship Triathlon in Kona, HI. While in Kona, he spent time with both professional and amateur tri-athletes treating their conditions prior to race day. Dr. Weber stated that, “this was a very rewarding experience that he would not have traded for anything.”
In 2008 Dr. Weber also added computerized PRO Adjuster technologies and techniques, AKA “Smart Chiropractic” to his practice. The PRO Adjuster uses the same sensing technology that NASA subcontractors have used in the space program. The PRO Adjuster is an FDA approved, medically patented devise using advancements in computer and engineering technologies combined with chiropractic care to analyze and treat the body. The PRO Adjuster is an extremely accurate, very gentle, low-force manipulation. The PRO Adjuster is wonderful for those who are unable to tolerate or handle the twisting, turning, or "cracking" of the joints. However some of Dr. Weber's patients prefer a manual adjustment, which he continually does.
The high-tech ART combined with the use of the PRO Adjuster have had some amazing results providing a form of chiropractic care not available anywhere else in this area.
