Dr. Joe Piché

Dr. Joe Piché is passionate about health and wellness and has helped thousands of people in the Traverse City area live happier, healthier lives. His chiropractic journey started at the age of 7 when he began getting adjusted as a way of healthy living. Since then, he has seen chiropractic not only for what it can do to help people with pain and symptoms, but also what it can do for overall health and well-being. Dr. Joe is interested in discovering the truth and finds looking at situations from a different perspective intriguing. Chiropractic fuels his focus on why people are healthy as opposed to why they are sick.

During his education at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Joe took a special interest in upper cervical (neck) techniques due to the miraculous results that they produce in difficult cases. That, coupled with full spine techniques, gives us several options to care for a multitude of people. Now after 15 years of practice and thousands of patients treated, he continues to be amazed by the human body’s capacity to achieve optimal health.

Dr. Lea Piché

Dr. Lea studied at Palmer College of Chiropractic & immersed herself in a world of health and wellness. Fortunate that her husband (Dr. Joe) had established their practice in Traverse City, she immediately joined him in practice upon her graduation.

Her passion is caring for women, pregnant women, infants, and children. Certified in the Webster’s Technique, allowing mothers and babies to have an optimal pregnancy, labor and birth. Having four beautiful children has taught her how to better provide care and support for moms.

Inspired by her family, Dr. Lea began reading food labels and she was shocked at what she was unknowingly putting in their bodies. This began the implementation of better nutrition in their home as well as in the office. Dr. Lea continued her nutrition journey and in 2014, was certified in Clinical Whole Food Nutrition through the International Foundation for Nutrition and Health.

The most rewarding times are witnessing that moment when the light bulb goes on and a person feels empowered to take control of their health. It is these moments that provide Dr. Lea with the desire to continue serving our Traverse Community.
