Dr. Michael Arriens II is the Clinic Director at North Texas Spinal Decompression Center in Ft.Worth Texas. Dr. Arriens has been in practice for over 14 years, having received his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Parker University in 1998. Dr. Arriens' practice experience includes personal injury, sports related injury, occupational injury, post-surgical rehabilitation and spinal decompression. Dr. Arriens' calling to chiropractic began as a small child when he survived a motor vehicle crash that fractured his spine and destroyed his L5 disc, a condition called spondylolisthesis. With regular chiropractic care Dr. Arriens has been able to avoid spinal stabilization/fusion surgery, which is utilized to fuse or reconnect the spine to the pelvis despite continuing his favorite hobby as an avid golfer. " I feel that my compassion for patients is unparalleled due to my own daily experience with lower back pain. Although I would never wish back pain on anyone in this life, I feel that I have a distinct advantage with my patients having suffered with lower back pain my whole life. I truly believe that a doctor who experiences the same conditions as his patients is more adept at understanding his patients, as well as addressing their pain and helping them get well."
