Meet the Chiropractor

  • Dr. Michael Rykse
    Hello, my name is Dr. Michael Rykse with AlignLife of Norton Shores and I’d like to welcome you to our office. If a friend referred you then you may have heard that I am passionate about helping people achieve optimal health and wellness. One of the first things you may notice about our office is that we are different. I’d like to take a few moments to explain where I came from, why I’m different, and how I got to be the practitioner that I am today.
