After getting rear-ended by a car driving around 55 miles per hour, Michelle Krenek escaped the car accident mostly unscathed, but didn’t feel like her normal self. While struggling to get a restful night of sleep, the energetic high-school teacher and basketball coach began waking up with intense headaches, pain in her neck, and fatigue. Michelle was skeptical when she took her friend's advice to visit a chiropractic office, but soon became amazed at the results after only a handful of visits. Not only was she completely relieved of pain, but she was also sleeping soundly at night and feeling rejuvenated by her newfound energy.
Michelle’s first visits to the chiropractic office inspired her to shift career paths and pursue her childhood dream of becoming a doctor. After graduating with honors from Parker College of Chiropractic and earning her license, Dr. Michelle Krenek opened Back To Life Chiropractic in 2010.
