About Dr. Michels

Dr. Michels is a former First Round Draft Choice and Super Bowl Champion with the Green Bay Packers. After an injury ended his NFL career, Dr. Michels was accepted to the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine where he went on to become a Dean’s list scholar and a member of the medical school admissions committee.

Injury stole my ability to live my dream as an NFL athlete. The focus of my practice is to keep people living out their passions, pain free.

Pain Mapping

Revolutionary interventional treatments and procedures

Dr. John Michels continues to provide the most advanced diagnostic techniques and treatments of back pain through comprehensive physical examination along with spinal pain mapping procedures. When physical examination or imaging studies fail to determine the etiology of pain, Dr. Michels will provide spinal pain mapping techniques.

Conservative Management

A multidisciplinary approach to patients’ chronic pain

Through conservative and interventional procedures, my goal as a pain management doctor is to minimize dependence of opiods, improve quality of life, improve function, and improve pain coping skills so the patient may better adapt to their daily activities and get back to their normal daily function.

  • I can't say enough about this guy. He has made a marked difference in my quality of life. I was spending every day in pain. I couldn't walk more than 1/4 mile and couldn't enjoy a show because sitting for any length of time generated pain and stiffness. Enter Dr. John. After several treatments I am now 98% back to normal. I have my life back!!! Thanks Dr. John.

  • Dr. John Michels comes with the best bedside manners I've ever met in a doctor. I believe in the heart he brings to each appointment and shot operation I've received in such a short amount of time. I have found out that I trust his judgment when it comes to me as his patient in his past location in Plano, Texas. I wish he was also a general practitioner as well; that's how good a doctor he is in my honest opinion. His professionalism comes close to no other doctor I have EVER needed help with.

  • What an absolutely awesome doc. Met with him as a referral from a spine surgeon. I have been in severe pain. His office staff was so warm and friendly I felt like I was taken care of like a family member. The doctor had such a warm, great personality and spent more time with me than any doctor I have ever seen. He took a great deal of time explaining possible cause of pain and the treatment he would deliver. He is a real gem!

  • I was referred to Dr. Michels for spinal injections to keep me - the Energizer bunny - ticking as a preschool teacher, Nana, and lifelong walker. My lower back pain was making life difficult at times to enjoy life to the fullest. Dr. Michels listens and in doing so you know he cares about what you have to say and is very easy to talk with. Three injections later I am getting ready for a 'walking' vacation! The office staff and nurse are so friendly, too. A reflection of him.

  • I discovered Dr. Michels after years of pain and discomfort. He saw to it the pain and conditions are gone forever! I have to say Dr. Michels is the only doctor I have ever requested to call that has in fact called me back the same day I left my message. I have already referred friends and family to Dr. Michels and will continue to do so in the future as he truly cares about his patients.
