Chiropractor Ankeny IA Dr. Mike LaBounty Meet The Team

Chiropractor

Michael LaBounty D.C.

A Passion for Health
Dr. Mike LaBounty grew up with an older brother who had finished medical school and a sister who had finished Chiropractic school while he was still in high school. That was the beginning of what led him to health care!

However, it was when he heard a chiropractor speak about how chiropractic works to restore balance to the body without drugs or surgery that he found his calling. After listening to the speaker, he immediately knew that chiropractic was for him and began to prepare for chiropractic school that same day!


Diving into Chiropractic
Ankeny Chiropractor Dr. Mike attended and graduated from the renowned Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While there, he had the unique opportunity to participate in two internships—one with a Gonstead chiropractor and one with a doctor who focused on upper cervical. Though he was very interested in both, he decided that the Gonstead Method would be his focus. Ever since, he’s been helping patients in Ankeny feel better naturally with specific, gentle, tailored care through the Gonstead system.

Dr. Mike is a member of the Iowa Chiropractic Society as well as the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society (GCSS). He is on the board of Gonstead Methodology Institute and teaches doctors and students through this organization. He also is adjunct faculty at both Palmer College and Northwestern Health Sciences where he brings on students as interns during their final trimester at school. Dr. Mike is a mentor to dozens of chiropractors and teaches at seminars on a regular basis across the country.

He developed a way of analyzing and listing specific adjustments to the sacrum. He has fine tuned adjusting patients in a very specific way lying down instead of twisting their spines in order to help patients get better faster, while feeling little to no tightness or soreness with their adjustments.


Outside of the Practice
Dr. Mike enjoys serving the Lord first, then his beautiful, amazing wife Abigail, and their children: Ava, Noelle, Landen, and Rosaline. The family also likes to soak up the outdoors and spend time with each other and family.

His family’s main focus is allowing God to work in and through them in every aspect of their lives. Dr. Mike often prays with his patients and has seen miracles in healing through prayer in conjunction with chiropractic!

Chiropractor

Michael Miller D.C.

Dr. Michael Miller is a native of Kansas, who grew up in Great Bend. He and his wife, Kristen, met in college. They have three boys: Garrison, Easton and new addition, Hudson. They homeschool, & Kristen loves being able to stay home with their babies!

Dr. Miller has been a personal trainer, participated in Olympic-Style Weight-lifting, and taught High School for several years, including coaching football. He loves the outdoors, sports, mountains, and camping. He has a passion for exercise, lifting, and healthy lifestyle habits. Dr. Miller enjoys spending time with his family and exploring God's creation with his boys.

At the age of 35, Dr. Miller decided to make a career change. His wife first introduced him to chiropractic soon after they were married. She always had great results with chiropractic and has received adjustments since she was young. They took their boys to get adjusted to help with digestive and sleeping issues. After speaking with the Chiropractor, Michael was curious about the benefits and possibilities of chiropractic, and began asking questions about the profession. He wanted to be able to specifically locate and adjust a subluxation in the spine, be able to help patients have better health outcomes, and enjoy the active lifestyle they were designed to live. He graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in December 2020.

Chiropractor Ankeny IA Dr. Abigail LaBounty
Certified Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner

Abigail LaBounty

Abigail's own health journey, and her family's, is what lead her to pursue the path of becoming a Certified Nutrition Response Testing® Practitioner.  Her daughter Rosaline was one year old, and not growing very well, and had a bloated belly all the time. This led Abigail and her husband, Michael, on a pursuit of finding a solution.

As Abigail and Rosaline started on the journey of Nutrition Response Testing®, they were amazed at the results. Rosaline became a healthier and happier toddler, and started growing as well! Abigail's health started rising also, along with the rest of her family. After deciding she wanted to learn more about Nutrition Response Testing® to help her family, Abigail realized the power of the testing for her family, and wanted to begin to reach beyond her family. This began her on an extensive and exciting journey of learning and certification to reach out to the community. She decided to launch Nutrition Response Testing® at Bountiful Life Chiropractic Center! Abigail is so excited to be on the road towards full health with each patient that comes through the doors!
