Owner and Treatment Director

"Throughout the course of history there has always been new systems created that make the old systems obsolete."​

-Dr. Michael Binder

Dr. Michael Binder's interest in the field of natural health and wellness originated early in life due to a football injury he suffered in high school. The care that he received, the overall recovery, as well as the treatment is what peaked his interest in chiropractic care.

Dr. Binder attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia and earned his doctorate in chiropractic. In 1993, upon graduating, he opened Binder Chiropractic Center in Salisbury, NC, to provide treatment to individuals with chronic illnesses, various pain conditions, as well as automotive and sport related injuries.

Functional medicine became his passion after realizing that a vast number of people were underserved and underequipped with traditional medical care models. Dr. Binder has completed hundreds of hours of extensive training in functional endocrinology with a special emphasis on the management of chronic metabolic disorders. In addition to his training in functional medicine, he also specializes in the treatment of functional neurology and chronic pain conditions; as well as, clinical nutrition and wellness.

His ultimate goal is not only to provide tools but to educate his patients on how to make decisions in their everyday lives to promote healing and long-term health. The clinical model at Binder Integrated Health Center is focused on using the most current research and published literature in all aspects of functional medicine from around the world.

Our belief here at Binder Integrated Health is that the practice of functional medicine is a clinical model that best addresses the needs of our communities. Ultimately, we believe this is the clinical model of the twenty-first century - HEALTHCARE OF THE FUTURE!
