Michael R. Lodes, DC, is a highly experienced physician who offers a complete menu of general and specialized chiropractic services to patients of all ages. At Lodes Chiropractic Center, his welcoming practice located just north of downtown Wilmington, Delaware, he’s dedicated to providing thorough, thoughtful care to everyone he treats.
With more than three decades of experience, Dr. Lodes is passionate about helping people attain optimal health through spinal alignment, preventive care, lifestyle modifications, and wellness coaching.
He takes a whole-person approach to healthcare, which means he seeks to correct the underlying cause of a problem, not simply treat its effects; it also means he views each patient as an active participant in their own well-being. Essentially, his approach is designed to free and assist, rather than to control or intrude.
Dr. Lodes specializes in treating chronic pain, degenerative spinal conditions, and disc injuries; he’s also an expert in cold laser therapy, posture correction, core stabilization training, weight loss, and nutrition. He strives to use the most sophisticated technology available and routinely attends continuing education seminars to stay up-to-date on the latest chiropractic techniques.
After receiving his first undergraduate degree from Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania, he enrolled in the National University of Health Sciences (formerly the National College of Chiropractic) in Lombard, Illinois, where he received an undergraduate degree in human biology followed by a doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine.
Dr. Lodes is board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and is licensed to practice in both Delaware and Pennsylvania.
When he’s not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Barb, and their son, Harry. He also enjoys scuba diving, visiting Long Beach Island with family and friends, and attending his son’s jazz piano concerts.
