About Us

Dr. KhalilTO ALL WHO MAY PERUSE, READ AND/ OR STUDY THE INFORMATION ON THIS SITE. I, KEITH J.KHALIL DC, LETTER, TYPE, AND LIVE LIFE OUT LOUD IN CAPS, DUE TO A 5 YEAR HISTORY OF PRE-COMPUTER MECHANICAL DRAWING CLASS WORK IN HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE. [CASS TECH, 74-78 & U OF D, 78-79]

A LONG TIME AGO IN A GALAXY FAR-FAR AWAY, I SUSTAINED A SEVERE LOW BACK INJURY (1980). AFTER BEING RECLINED FOR TWO WEEKS, MY YOUNGER BROTHER AND MOTHER CARRIED ME INTO A FEW MEDICAL OFFICES, WHERE AFTER MINIMAL EXAMINATIONS, THE WORKING DIAGNOSIS WAS DEEMED A SLIPPED DISC AND ORTHOPEDIC LUMBAR FUSION SURGERY WAS THE RECOMMENDED COURSE OF ACTION WITH A PROGNOSIS OF A VERY LIMITED PHYSICAL LIFESTYLE. PRIOR TO THE INJURY I WAS COMPETING IN AMATEUR BOXING (GOLDEN GLOVES), THE NEW SPORT OF TRIATHLONS, MARTIAL ARTS AND WEIGHT LIFTING. BEING THE OLDEST OF SEVEN CHILDREN (3BOYS & 4GIRLS), HAVING A FATHER THAT WAS HOMEBOUND ON S.S.I. DISABILITY DUE TO HIS OWN HEALTH CHALLENGES (HEART DX, LUNG DX, DIABETES, AND OBESITY) AND A MOTHER WHOM WAS NOT ABLE TO WORK OUTSIDE OF THE HOME, THE NEED TO WORK FULL TIME WHILE GOING TO SCHOOL AND COMPETING WAS JUST MY REALITY. THEREFORE, AN OUTCOME THAT MAY HAVE LEFT ME PHYSICALLY COMPROMISED BECAME MY LAST RESORT. I THEN BEGAN CONSIDERING CHIROPRACTIC AS AN ALTERNATIVE OPTION TO INVASIVE SURGERY. I RECALLED GOING WITH MY COUSIN ONE TIME TO SEE HIS CHIROPRACTOR WHILE IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS OWN STIFF NECK DISCOMFORT. AFTER ONE OR MAYBE IT WAS TWO TREATMENTS, HE WAS CURED AND RETURNED TO FULL PAIN FREE ACTIVITY. UPON CONSULTING THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ABOUT MY THOUGHTS AND INTERESTS TOWARD ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE, I WAS TOLD BY THREE DIFFERENT M.D.’S THAT I WAS STUPID FOR EVEN CONSIDERING A CHIROPRACTIC OPTION, AND THAT CHIROPRACTIC WOULD CRIPPLE ME FOR LIFE. WELL, I HAD RECEIVED A SCHOLARSHIP TO ATTEND U OF D VIA THE GENERAL ELECTRIC CARBOLOY COMPANY AND AFTER HAVING GRADUATED 17TH IN MY CLASS OF 1100 STUDENTS FROM CASS TECH, I KNEW I WASN’T STUPID, AND WITH THE LIMITED LIFESTYLE OUTCOME THE M.D.’S WERE PREDICTING, I FIGURED I HAD NOTHING TO LOSE AND EVERYTHING TO GAIN.

WITHIN TWO WEEKS OF SPECIFIC SCIENTIFIC CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS, NOT ONLY WAS I OUT OF PAIN AND WALKING, I PERFORMED A BACK HAND SPRING IN THE OFFICES OF THE MD’S THAT RECOMMENDED SURGERY. AGAIN I WAS TOLD THAT I WAS STUPID FOR LETTING A “QUACK” PLACE HIS CRACKER JACK BOX DEGREED HANDS ON ME. WELL, AFTER CHANGING MY MAJOR TO HEALTH SCIENCE AND TRANSFERRING TO MACOMB COMMUNITY COLLEGE, AND SUBSEQUENTLY TO LIFE CHIROPRACTIC COLLEGE IN MARRIETTA GA., I GRADUATED DECEMBER 16, 1989 AND HAVE BEEN PRACTICING IN SOUTH MACOMB COUNTY MICHIGAN EVER SINCE. THE FIRST 5.5 YEARS IN ST.CLAIR SHORES, AND AS OF MAY 1, 1995 HERE IN SUNNY EASTPOINTE MICHIGAN , A FAMILY TOWN.

SINCE MY OWN CHIROPRACTIC MIRACLE HEALING, BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I HAVE ACHIEVED AND COMPLETED MANY SPORTS RELATED ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS, INCLUDING GOLDEN GLOVE VICTORIES, MARATHONS, TRIATHALONS, A BLACK BELT IN KARATE, FIREWALKING, SKY & SCUBA DIVING, AND MY MOST PROUD ACCOMPLISHMENT, AGAIN BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND MY BRIDE OF 30 YEARS, LAURA, THE FATHERING OF FOUR CHILDREN. I AM STILL VERY ACTIVE IN AND AROUND MY HOME AND PRACTICE COMMUNITY, WITH FAR MORE TEACHING AND FAR LESS COMPETING, HAVING PASSED THE TORCH FOR COMPETING TO MY CHILDREN, AND MY PATIENTS/CLIENTS.
