Michael König, Ph.D., D.C.                                                                                                                                                                     

Michael König, Ph.D., D.C., received his doctorate in chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1991.  He is licensed in the State of New York (and in New Jersey) and has been in clinical practice since 1992.  In caring for his patients, he is motivated by his desire to offer the best service he is capable of.  He uses his open, inquisitive and scientifically trained mind to seek out innovative and promising diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in an effort to improve the quality and effectiveness of his care.  His desire to learn is reflected in the variety of modalities he uses in his practice and the certifications he holds in the Cox Flexion Distraction Technique; Applied Kinesiology; Biocranial Therapy; the Impulse Adjusting System; FirstLine Therapy; and the ZYTO BALANCE and ELITE biocommunication applications.

Dr. König had a previous career as a geophysicist, working both in industry and in academe. A native of Germany, he has lived in New York City for most of his life.  He embraced the value of physical exercise early in his life and, inspired by Frank Shorter’s win in the 1972 Olympic Marathon, took up long-distance running, completing over 45 marathons between 1973 and 2009 — most of them in New York City.  He is now an avid bicyclist.
