Dr. Mikkelson is a firm believer in the idea that lifestyle and the daily decisions we make determine our health, productivity, and happiness. He advocates exercise, proper nutrition, stress reduction, and other forms of preventative care. He sees chiropractic care as more effective, less invasive, and a faster way to treat many conditions involving the neck, back, and entire nervous system.

He is a wrestling coach at Ryle High School in Union, Kentucky. He is also on the medical advisory committee and on the board of overseers at the Redwood Rehabilitation Center.

  • "I am very pleased with Rettay Chiropratic, of Florence, KY. I have been a patient now of Dr. Mikkelsons' for a couple of months and I must say he is very professional and leaves me feeling as though he really cares about my well being. He listens to my complaints and helps me resolve my stiffness, soreness and pain. His staff is very friendly and they work well with my schedule. There hours of operation are very helpful. They are open during lunch time @ Noon so I can easily leave work and run over on my lunch break and get write in and out and still have time to grab a bit to eat. My life of much less pain has changed dramatically since being a patient of Rettay Chiropratic. Thanks you Dr. Mikkelson !!"

  • "My husband and I have been seeing Doc for several years now he has always been prompt and professional. I recently saw him after spraining my shoulder and after just one adjustment and some tape to support my shoulder my pain has gone from an 8 to about a 2. Thank you Doc for all you do for us to keep our bodies going."

  • "All the personnel at Rettay were very compassionate of my pain. Dr. Mickkelson thoroughly explained what he found and best remedies. Historically, my upper back has been painfully difficult for chiropractors to adjust. However, during my procedure, it felt like Dr. M barely touched my upper back when I heard several places move. Zero pain. It was incredible. I'll never go anywhere else!"
