About Me

Dr. Michael Braccio, DC DACRB earned his Bachelor’s of Science degree in General Biology from the University of Washington and his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic West.

After graduating from chiropractic college, he decided that he wanted to specialize in rehabilitation and performance training. Dr. Braccio went on to earn a Diplomate in Rehabilitation from the American Chiropractic Rehabilitation Board, becoming one of only eight chiropractors in Washington state with this certification.

Dr. Braccio also has advanced certifications in a variety of techniques and systems, including: Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Functional Movement Screen (FMS), RockTape Kinesiology Taping, and Graston Technique. His approach to treatment involves combining these techniques to reduce pain and improve function.

While he has experience treating a variety of conditions, he has a particular interest in pain science, tendinopathies, and performance rehabilitation. Dr. Michael’s article on tendinopathy was featured in a publication for the American Chiropractic Association.

On the off chance that Dr. Braccio is not in the clinic, he can be found in the mountains snowboarding or at the ice rink playing hockey. He is also an avid reader of all sorts of nonfiction books. Some of his current favorites include Antifragile and Thinking, Fast and Slow.
