Dr. Mike Lewen

Mike Lewen obtained his doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College in Florida after his undergraduate studies in Exercise Science at the University of Florida.

Dr. Mike specializes in strength and conditioning, movement and biomechanics, soft tissue management, and the mind-body connection.

His unique understanding and awareness of the body as a result of a lifelong genetic connective tissue disorder known as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome has been a catalyst for creating his business in a very unique way.

While Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome provides him with a unique understanding and perspective, it can also be debilitating and cause significant chronic pain syndromes if not addressed and managed properly. This is why he has created an original style and technique for the training weight and therapy settings at StrengthX.

He has created a simple and all-new method of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of any rehab plan, exercise program, or for those individuals looking to improve their current state of physical health and wellness with better posture and awareness.

“It’s not what you do,
it’s how you do it.“

— Dr. Mike Lewen
