Dr. Michael Davenport
Dr. Michael Davenport has been practicing as a Sports Chiropractic Physician for over 25 years in the Chicagoland area primarily in the Northwest Suburbs. He currently lives in Arlington Heights and grew up primarily in central Ohio. As a boy, he ran cross country and track in high school and participated in soccer and baseball. Although he has run most of his life, he began swimming when he was 30, prompted by an introduction into triathlon. Dr. D ran his first marathon at 20 years old, completed his first Ironman Triathlon at 32 years old and his first ultradistance trail race at 37 years old. He continues to compete today in all these events and plans to compete in the World Ironman Triathlon Championships this October in Kona, HI for the first time in his age group.
Dr. D has been involved in the running and triathlon community for over 30 years. He has competed in many races from 5Ks to 100 miles. He has completed 13 Ironman Triathlons and many Half Ironman Triathlons and Olympic Races. He has run the Chicago Marathon over 25 times! Dr. D has completed 24 100 mile trail races including his favorite, the Western States 100 mile trail run in Northern California 5 times. Although, he stays involved in the running and triathlon racing scene, he mostly enjoys treating athletes who want to continue to compete in various events from the elementary, middle school and high school athlete to the 80 year old completing his one and only Ironman World Championship in Kona or the Olympic athlete competing in her first Olympic Marathon. He also enjoys treating those who are active and want to remain active in whatever life brings them!
Dr. D began his Chiropractic career when he was 35 years old. He decided to return to the healthcare field after becoming a triathlete. He wanted to place his efforts into helping people understand their bodies and the healing powers it holds. Dr. D believes that movement is the key to optimal health and improved physiological aging. He has recently integrated his facility, Running Iron Performance, to include nutrition, chiropractic, rehab, acupuncture, blood work and many other services to assist all his patients to reach their potential of optimal health.
