Meet The Staff

Dr. Michael J. O’Connor graduated from SUNY Cortland in 1982 and began to manage prestigious fitness centers across Asia. During his tenure managing the Hyatt fitness centers in Singapore he met his wife, Stephanie and they married in ’86. Dr. O’Connor decided he needed a change of career after a life changing experience with a chiropractor and decided to become one himself.   He attended Life University in Marietta, GA. and graduated in 1993 and he has been practicing chiropractic ever since. He bought his first practice in Palm Coast, Florida and continued to practice there for 12 years. However, the travel bug bit him once again and he decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of his – moving to Italy. He set up his first international clinic in Riva del Garda and later moved it to Arco, where he and his family settled for close to 4 years. Upon his return in 2010 he opened Advanced Healthcare and Physical Medicine and has been here ever since. He specializes in diversified technique, Palmer technique, Gonstead, KST, Thompson drop, Occipital Technique, SOT, toggle, activator analysis, & Pettibon.

Dr. O’Connor is one of the most approachable and passionate chiropractors you will ever meet. He loves to see his patients take back their health and helps them change their life for the better. He is not just a chiropractor, but  more like a life and wellness coach.
