Originally from Pennsylvania, Dr. Michael Testen, D.C., now calls Chicago home. He’s thrilled to serve the Orland Hills community as an associate chiropractor alongside Dr. Ziad Zayed, D.C.
At only 13 years old, Dr. Michael vividly remembers limping into the chiropractor’s office after a wrestling injury—he could barely bend his knee. His chiropractor simply adjusted the area, and the pain suddenly stopped. In fact, it felt like the injury had never happened in the first place.
This experience made such an impact on Dr. Michael that he continued care into his college athletic career at the Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. After, he went on to earn his doctorate of chiropractic from Life University. He is national board certified and belongs to the International Chiropractic Association.
In practice, it’s Dr. Michael’s personal mission to spread the word of chiropractic to as many people as possible. He’s driven to help all ages stay active and healthy, and nothing makes him happier than helping someone learn what chiropractic can do for their health and well-being. When he’s with a patient, he’s with that patient—nothing else matters.
This singular focus on patient care has brought Dr. Michael across the globe. He’s been on two mission trips, one in Haiti and the other in El Salvador, serving those in need with chiropractic care. In his spare time, Dr. Michael enjoys lifting weights, traveling, hanging out with friends and family, attending church, going to the movies and seeing live music—especially country!
Dr. Michael’s personal mantra is, "Giving, loving and serving—with no attachment to the results." This saying reminds him of the natural power of the chiropractic adjustment. He adds, “It is only the body that can heal—all I do is help remove any interferences to the innate power of the body.”
