Dr. Michael Risher

Dr. Risher knew he wanted to be a chiropractor in eighth grade when he suffered a back injury. His chiropractor helped him overcome the injury and go on to have a high school and collegiate football career. He was a Division III All-American defensive back at Wheaton College as a senior. There he also completed his bachelors degree in Applied Health Science. Upon graduation in 2015, he accomplished a lifelong dream of riding his bicycle from San Francisco to Boston. This was where the idea of overcoming obstacles became engrained in his life. Before attending Palmer Chiropractic College West, Dr. Risher worked as a sports performance coach in Highland Park where he worked with athletes of all ages. In 2016 he moved to San Jose, CA where he completed his Doctorate of Chiropractic earning clinical excellence honors. Dr. Risher wants to help you overcome the obstacles that are holding you back from living the life you want!
