Meet Dr. Mike LaBounty

A Passion for Health

Chiropractor Ankeny, Dr. Mike LaBountyDr. Mike LaBounty grew up with an older brother who had finished medical school and a sister who had finished Chiropractic school while he was still in high school. That was the beginning of what led him to health care! However, it was when he heard a chiropractor speak about how chiropractic works to restore balance to the body without drugs or surgery that he found his calling. After listening to the speaker, he immediately knew that chiropractic was for him and began to prepare for chiropractic school that same day!

Diving into Chiropractic

Ankeny Chiropractor Dr. Mike attended and graduated from the renowned Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While there, he had the unique opportunity to participate in two internships—one with a Gonstead chiropractor and one with a doctor who focused on upper cervical. Though he was very interested in both, he decided that the Gonstead Method would be his focus. Ever since, he’s been helping patients in Ankeny feel better naturally with specific, gentle, tailored care through the Gonstead system.

Dr. Mike is a member of the Iowa Chiropractic Society as well as the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society (GCSS). He is on the board of Gonstead Methodology Institute and teaches doctors and students through this organization. He also is adjunct faculty at both Palmer College and Northwestern Health Sciences where he brings on students as interns during their final trimester at school. Dr. Mike is a mentor to dozens of chiropractors and teaches at seminars on a regular basis across the country.

He developed a way of analyzing and listing specific adjustments to the sacrum. He has fine tuned adjusting patients in a very specific way lying down instead of twisting their spines in order to help patients get better faster, while feeling little to no tightness or soreness with their adjustments.

Outside of the Practice

Dr. Mike enjoys serving the Lord first, then his beautiful, amazing wife Abigail, and their children: Ava, Noelle, Landen, and Rosaline. The family also likes to soak up the outdoors and spend time with each other and family.

His family’s main focus is allowing God to work in and through them in every aspect of their lives. Dr. Mike often prays with his patients and has seen miracles in healing through prayer in conjunction with chiropractic!
