They are here to help you understand that at Mountain Movement, we can help you get
back to moving and into peak performance
in life and sport.

Professional Runner

I went to Dr. Day after suffering a running injury. My friend in Long Beach said he worked miracles. Boy was she right. I had seen 3 dr. at that point and no one could pinpoint what the pain was caused from. He immediately assessed the injury and found the cause. He told me it would take time and direction for me to heal.

I am a runner and it my passion. He promised I would run again. And believing in my friend was the best thing I did. I’m not only better but stronger and have taught myself how to run a new technique thanks to dr. Dave who showed me what muscles I should focus on and nurture instead of overtraining and destroying them. I am so grateful to my friend for sharing not only her chiropractor but her spiritual and physical healer. You are an amazing Dr!

So blessed that you are the healer who brought my passion back to life! Thank you Dr. Day and thank you Cindy for making my visits possible by juggling the schedule to fit me in while I was in town. So grateful!!!

The best experience from making the appointment on the phone with the friendliest desk staff, to seeing Dr. Day. I am a hairdresser and recently started a boot camp. I have just started suffering from tennis or golf elbow. Dr. Day immediately knew how to handle my situation.

I REALLY LIKED HOW DR. DAY EXPLAINED MY SITUATION AND REMEDY IN GREAT DETAIL, EVEN TAKING TIME TO WRITING DOWN INSTRUCTIONS FOR WHEN I GET HOME AND COMPLETELY FORGET EVERYTHING HE SAID. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED HE SHOWED ME SEVERAL STRETCHES TO DO AT HOME TO HELP MY PAIN. Dr. Day also listened to all my questions of my aging body. He assisted me with some nutrition ideas for helping my fatigue and even suggested some supplements to try. I will defi-nitely continue to see Dr. Day and schedule future adjustments.

Short story = Dr. Michael Day is an amazing, skilled, intuitive, healing chiropractor (and a great person) and I highly recommend him! Give yourself the gift of seeing him.
Longer story = I’ve been seeing Dr. Day for years. I feel better every time I leave – whether it’s an acute injury or maintenance visit. He takes his time and considers the whole person – emotional, spiritual, mental and physical. He is positive and supportive. USING AN ARRAY OF ADJUST-ING TECHNIQUES AND SOFT TISSUE WORK, COMBINED WITH HIS INNATE GIFTS, HE HAS HELPED ME HEAL OLD INJURIES AND KEEP MY BODY BALANCED IN ORDER TO PERFORM AT MY BEST.

Dr. Day has also worked on my family members and friends. He helped my mother-in-law regain range of motion and decrease pain after a knee replacement. After treating my sister’s old shoulder injury, she said she hadn’t felt better in years. My 6 year old was treated for jaw and knee discomfort. A friend had severe pain down her arm and hands and after two treatments the pain was gone. I could go on.
Dr. Day will demonstrate exercises and stretches to do at home (and he doesn’t judge you if you come back again and didn’t do them) He motivates you and accepts you just as you are.

Dr. Day walks his talk and is always learning and growing so he can help himself and serve others. He loves helping people feel their best!

Michael I wanted to say thank you for all your help and wish you luck in your new journey. I appreciate the way you work and your knowledge in your field. I related to you as a surfer and a Christian man and that meant a lot to me. I wish you all the best.

Rich Ottaviano

South Carolina… you are getting a very special person, much different from the average chiropractor. After years of knee pain, he diagnosed quickly that my footwear was part of the problem. Getting that fixed and doing the exercises he gave me plus his treatments allowed me to reduce pain that no one had been able to address other than with drugs.

I have a long list of friends who had Dr. Day help them after no other chiropractor could provide relief. He is a wonderful guy, he has a terrific family and has an inspiring story of his path to his profession and his approach.

HIS SPORTS MEDICINE EXPERIENCE IS TRULY UNIQUE AND I KNOW NO OTHER DOC WHO EXEMPLIFIES BETTER THE DICTUM OF “FIRST, DO NO HARM”. I suggest you give this wonderful doctor a try….. you will not be sorry.

Nicole Schweiri, MD

I have had the good fortune these past 8 years to share in my patient’s care alongside Dr. Micahel Day. I have been a practicing Family Practice Physician for the past 20 years and enjoy working closely with my patients using various modalities to ensure their best overall health. On several occasions, Dr. Day has been an incredible resource for me and for my patients. He has a unique intuitive and skilled ability to diagnose and treat patients using a holistic approach – always individualizing his care to fit each patient’s needs. Dr. Day’s enthusiastic and pleasant demeanor compliments his skill and knowledge base.

I have the upmost confidence and appreciation for the fantastic care Dr. Day has given my patients. I will miss his positive and energetic personality but wish him all the best!

Jennifer Steece, PA-C, MPH

I’m an ER physician assistant and mom of 3. I originally came in for neck and upper back pain typical of moms of young children and people who work at computers and with patients. I just wanted a little adjustment so the constant ache was kept at bay. I was also experiencing intense “tennis elbow” but figured “chiropractors deal with the spine so he probably won’t be able to address my issue”. Boy, was I wrong! Dr. Day took the time to fully evaluate my issues and it turns out my tennis elbow was due to the tight shoulder and chest muscles and it was a symptom of the back and neck rather than a separate issue entirely.

I have been to several chiropractors over the years and most have the same technique…” crack, crack and bye-bye” but Dr. Day takes the time to evaluate the whole person. THERE IS A SMALL COMPONENT OF ADJUSTMENTS BUT THE MAJORITY OF THE VISIT IS MUSCLE RELEASE, STRETCHES AND RETRAINING THE BODY TO BE IN PROPER ALIGNMENT. HE ALSO COMPLIMENTS THAT WITH NUTRITION AND OTHER HOLISTIC EASTERN MEDICINE APPROACHES. MY TENNIS ELBOW IS ALMOST COMPLETELY RESOLVED AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS OF AGONY!
I was even able to convert my husband (who hates going to doctors, massage or chiropractic because “they don’t help”) to “being a believer”!

Dr, Day is genuinely a “nice guy” and is really an asset to the field of chiropractic and holistic health. We are going to miss him! I know any area that he moves to will be lucky to have him!

Linda H P.A.

I am a Physician Assistant and I strongly believe in integrative medicine. I feel this approach provides treatment options that can be integrated into patients lifestyles and promote ongoing healing. In my opinion, this is the philosophy Dr. Day provides to his patients. He has an incredible knowledge of the body and its parts.
HE TEACHES US ON GOOD NUTRITION AND EXERCISE AND HOW THEY ALL COME TOGETHER IN PROMOT-ING GOOD HEALTH. AFTER LEAVING HIS OFFICE, YOU HAVE BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHATS GOING ON with your body and ways to improve and prevent injury.

Carole Metcalf, MBA

As a health care professional for over 40 years, I FEEL QUALIFIED TO CALL OUT EXCELLENCE WHEN I EXPERIENCE IT. DR. DAY OFFERS AN INCREDIBLE ARRAY OF TREATMENTS FOR SPORTS RELATED INJURY. His expertise saved me from one invasive surgery and hastened healing immensely from a ruptured gastrocnemius. I have referred family, friends, and colleagues to Dr. Day and wish him the best in his relocation. In short, I endorse Dr. Day completely.

Shea Lopez

Shea LopezWHEN I FIRST RECEIVED TREATMENT FROM DR DAY I WAS UNABLE TO SURF DUE TO SURF RELATED INJU-RIES TO THE NECK, SHOULDER, AND BACK. After one visit I was able to get back in the water to not only enjoy surfing again but also perform my job pain-free. Repeat visits keep me in tune, much like my car, so that I never regress to a such a high level of discomfort again. Thanks, Dr Day!

Kelly Stalker, Surfer

Kelly StalkerI’VE BEEN SEEING DR. DAY SINCE I GOT HIT BY A CAR WHILE RIDING MY BIKE IN 2010. HE FIXED ME UP AND GOT ME DOING ALL THE THINGS I LOVE DOING AGAIN. HE ALSO KEPT ME WELL ADJUSTED THROUGH BOTH OF MY PREGNANCIES. WHENEVER SOMEONE ASKS ME FOR A CHIRO REFERENCE HE’S THE ONLY NAME I GIVE. HE’S NOT YOUR TYPICAL CHIRO THAT HAS YOU LAY ON A TABLE TO CRACK YOUR NECK AND BACK AND BID YOU FAREWELL. HE DOES SO MUCH MORE.

Christine S.

I started seeing both Dr. Day and Amy LeSage over 2 years ago when I was trying to get pregnant and needed to prepare my body for this next chapter. They were there for me every step of the way (even by cell phone), always making time for me and truly caring about my well be-ing. WORKING WITH THEM DURING MY PREGNANCY WAS KEY TO KEEPING BOTH MYSELF AND MY GROWING BABY HEALTHY AND HAPPY. THEY HONESTLY WERE TWO OF MY BEST SUPPORTS OUTSIDE OF CLOSE FAMILY AND FRIENDS. I’VE CONTINUED WORKING WITH THEM EVER SINCE AND NOW HAVE THEM WORK ON MY INFANT SON (AND FINALLY MY HUSBAND). THEY TRULY ARE “WELLNESS PROFESSIONALS” AND I WOULDN’T TRUST MY FAMILY’S HEALTH WITH ANYONE ELSE. They are dedicated, kind, and downright good people. Their staff is courteous and friendly. It’s always a pleasant experience going in for my appointments. And they are super kid-friendly and will even play with my baby so I can get adjustments…talk about great family service:) We love Day Wellness!!!

Grace J.

DR. DAY IS ALSO GREAT WITH KIDS! I HAVE TAKEN MY TODDLER TO SEE HIM FOR WELLNESS VISITS. HE HAS HELPED HER SKIRT EAR INFECTIONS AND HAS HELPED KEEP HER HEALTHY.
I have also gone to visit him multiple times. He helped me get rid of my headaches and back pain. And now that I’m expecting Baby #2, I’m going for some more visits with him.

Dr. Michael Day is a special man. He is kind and intuitive and understands that supporting the body’s natural intelligence is the way to achieve healing. He is extremely knowledgeable, and I have had no reserves in referring him to many people. I TEACH A NATURAL CHILDBIRTH CLASS, AND HE HAS BEEN WONDERFUL IN SUPPORTING MY STUDENTS’ PREGNANCIES AND THEN TREATING THE FAMILIES, INCLUDING THEIR BABIES, AFTER BIRTH. MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN SEEING DR DAY SINCE SHE WAS LITTLE, AND SHE JUST LOVES HIM. He really knows how to connect with kids (having 3 boys and being kind of a big kid at heart, himself 🙂

From a selfish perspective, I am very bummed he is leaving us in So Cal, but am happy for his new community, as they are getting a “good one.”
At 6 mos pregnant, I started having THE WORST back pain and none of the massages from my husband were making a dent in the way that I was feeling. I thought it had to be ‘normal’ pregnancy back pain, but when I described it to my Dr., she recommended Chiropractic care. I FOUND DR. DAY AND HE LITERALLY SAVED MY LIFE! I WENT TO HIM 2X/WEEK FOR 3 WEEKS AND I AM MAGICALLY HEALED! I haven’t had to go back since I’ve been pregnant because my back is completely back to normal! If you are hesitant about trying out chiropractic care, give Dr. Day a chance and he will show you it’s totally worth it!

Professional Cyclist

Here are some pictures from the Half IM race. Finishing the race was great but meeting my goal time was a fantastic feeling (and being in the top 10 in my age group was just icing on the cake)! I couldn’t have done it without your care and yes sometimes uncomfortable treatments enabling me to train to my fullest potential over the last 6 months!

Jane Park. LPGA Golfer

Jane Park. LPGA GolferI came to Dr. Day when I had a very nagging and prolonged wrist injury that continued to bother me for years. With his different approaches to treatment, he was able to greatly improve my injury. I now have little to no pain in my wrists while doing the exercises that I was given by Dr. Day. I only wish I didn’t move away! Thanks, Dr. Day for being a great doctor and a great friend as well!

Carlos, Ironman Triathlete

I am so thankful that Dr. Day was on my team when I trained and competed my first Ironman. His expert attention and advice was instrumental in my success. Thank you so much Dr. Day! I am forever grateful for your friendship, help and guidance!

Steve Mackel
Founder: Sole Runners Marathon Training Team

runner-rave-review-sports-chiropracticI just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for all your support of the Sole Runner Mara-thon and Half Marathon Training Programs. Over the past (7-5?) years your expertise has been invaluable.

As a running coach, I always look for a local Chiropractor to work with. I know my runners will need various services throughout their training and one of the most important is working with a local doctor that understands running, runners and how to get them and keep them going. FROM COMING IN AND GIVING TALKS TO OUR GROUP, SPECIALIZED GROUP TRAINING / NUTRITIONAL PROGRAMMING AND OFFICE VISITS FOR TREATMENT FOR MY RUNNERS YOU OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF SERVICES.

ANOTHER THING I REALLY APPRECIATE IS YOU KNOWLEDGE OF THE KINETIC CHAIN. From the demon-strations of exercises for strengthening, stretching and tissue management you offer a lot more than most “bone crunchers”.

We are going to miss you all your help. We wish you luck on your move. I’m sure another local running club will be lucky enough to bring you in to assist their runners.

When I came to see you, I had hip pain, neck pain, and migraine headaches as a result of mis-alignment and the resulting muscle tension. HOWEVER, IT HAD TAKEN ME 2 YEARS TO WORK UP THE NEVER TO SEE YOU BECAUSE I’VE GOT SOME PRETTY SERIOUS BACK ISSUES AND I WAS WORRIED A CHIROPRACTOR MIGHT NOT BE SENSITIVE TO THOSE NEEDS AND ACTUALLY MAKE THINGS WORSE.

IT WOULD NOT BE AN OVERSTATEMENT TO SAY THAT MY EXPERIENCES WITH YOU THE LAST 6 OR MORE YEARS HAVE IMPROVED MY QUALITY OF LIFE IMMEASURABLY. What you gave me was a personalized plan of treatment that has changed how I live. The headaches are gone, I’ve got a set of exercises and stretches that I can use on my own to loosen other areas up, and I’m able to move without pain as a result of your monthly treatments. Never once did I feel like it was just a 2-minute “crack and go” session (I don’t think I ever “cracked” at all). I so appreciate that everything you did was intentional and that you were willing to coordinate with others (like my trainer) to bring back my health.

I can’t imagine it’s going to be easy to find a chiropractor with your mix of skill, creativity, and compassion now that you’re moving on. Your new patients are going to be very fortunate to find you!

All the best wishes to you. And thank you for everything.

Dr. Day is simply the best.  I had been seeing doctors and physical therapist for over six months to deal with some nerve related pain.  DR. DAY DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY AND HAD IT SOLVED IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.  HE SIMPLY UNDERSTANDS HOW THE BODY WORKS BETTER THAN MOST.  It is a treat to go see him and I now send all of my employees whenever needed.

Betty

Dr. Day has been my saving grace.  I’M INVOLVED W. A MARATHON TRAINING TEAM, DO LOTS OF YOGA & OTHER SPORTS SPORADICALLY.  DR. DAY’S A SURFER & ALL AROUND ATHLETE SO IT’S SO WONDERFUL TO HAVE SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS EXACTLY WHERE YOU’RE COMING FROM.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Day for about 5 years now for chiro, bodywork, nutrition counseling, etc.

It depends on how much you want to get into it but you can also do work w. your diet, supplements, etc here, too. He also treats pregnant women and is a great pregnancy chiropractic advocate.

I “DISCOVERED” DR. DAY THROUGH MY FORMER YOGA TEACHER WHO TRUSTED AND RELIED ON HIM FOR GOOD REASON.  I’ve now established my own level of complete trust in Dr. Day’s approach to healing.  To say that he is a chiropractor is only part of the picture because his approach is much MORE COMPREHENSIVE. Specifically, he cares about his patient’s mind and body connection. And it’s uncanny how he can diagnose with a glance or a simple light, non-invasive touch.

He has always worked with me to find resolution to “trouble areas” in order that I can work on my own improvements. Without hesitation, Dr. Day will demonstrate exercises or techniques that I may take away with me after treatment.

Lastly, I want to share that Dr. Day is an especially kind, caring, intuitive, intelligent doctor and human being.  He has always utilized the right approach, tailored just for me, and I have always felt especially well cared for with his healing guidance.

You will be missed, Dr. Day, not only because you’re an amazing Chiropractor but because you are a blessing as a man and friend. I have been going to Chiropractors, on and off, for 50 years and never had one as wonderful and knowledgeable as you are. My husband and I appreciate the time you spend with us and treat us and our specific issues in such a personal way. We never feel like you rush us through and I’ve never had a Chiropractor show how much they cared about my wellness by explaining things and even getting down on the floor to show me how to do exercises that will help me. Your staff has always been amazing and caring as well.

When we moved to California we had to leave our amazing Chiropractor back east. We searched far and wide, had many terrible adjustments, until one day we finally found Dr. Day!! I can honestly say that Dr. Day is a phenomenal healer and an all around great person. If you are looking for a chiropractor who will actually take his time to address your unique concerns – Dr. Day is your man. He never gives the wam-bam-5-minute adjustment. He takes the time to get to know you and truly wants to help YOU achieve your optimal heath goals. Out of 5 stars, I give him a 6 for sure!

Erin P

Dr. Day is more than a chiropractor. He is a healer and a teacher who walks the walk. He listens to me, communicates clearly, and addresses my issues intuitively and with a wealth of knowledge. I can’t say enough good things about the Day Wellness team!
