Meet the Team
Dr. Lawrence Micheli
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Lawrence Micheli studied Kinesiology and graduated from the University of Waterloo and received his Doctor of Chiropractic with Honors from the National College of Chiropractic. He has been serving patients in the Mississauga, Peel, Oakville, Greater Toronto area for over 21 years. Dr. Micheli was inspired to become a chiropractor during his first year of university. The kinesiology co-op program at the University of Waterloo led him to do a placement in the summer following his second semester of the program in a Chiropractic clinic. It was then that he realized the amazing potential of manual therapy and active exercise rehabilitation. Seeing the dramatic improvements in the quality of people’s lives, the reduced levels of pain and tremendous amounts of patient satisfaction drew him into the profession immediately. He knew he wanted to get into health care to help people and that experience sealed the deal. Dr. Micheli believes the single best thing about patient care is the immediate acknowledgment by the patient that they feel better. Having a patient get off the treatment table and know they can move better with less pain is very satisfying to him, as a Chiropractor. Dr. Micheli served as an Active Release Techniques (ART) instructor for over 13 years. More recently his focus of study is in the area of Fascia. He is the first chiropractor in Canada certified in the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) and is now teaching other therapists across North America. He has always had a keen interest in working with golfers and attained a Medical Professional certification (Level 3) from the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) to improve his clinical effectiveness working with golfers through a specialized movement assessment screen.
Dr. Micheli also provides care for amateur and professional athletes from many sports including hockey, basketball, tri-sport athletes, kayak/canoe, beach volleyball, figure skating, MMA, and track and field.
Roger Cote graduated from University of Toronto in Physical and Health Education and completed a post graduate program in Physiotherapy at McMaster University. He has been serving patients in the Mississauga, Peel, Oakville, Greater Toronto area for over 20 years. With experience in working with many different populations including sports injury, motor vehicle accident, workplace injury and long-term disability patients. Roger was inspired to become Physiotherapist as he has always had a keen interest in sports injuries, and he played many sports in his childhood. He played basketball and football in high school and sustained many injuries that required Physiotherapy treatment. It was a fractured ankle that later inspired him to join this profession. He was fascinated in the assessment and treatment of sports injuries early on and had a special interest in the diagnosis and management of soft tissue injuries. It was his interest in exercise physiology and sports medicine that led him down the professional pathway of becoming a registered physiotherapist. Roger enjoys and receives great satisfaction with being able to help patients understand their injuries and give them the tools they need for self-treatment. Providing patients with an understanding of their injuries can be rewarding as patients often feel hopeless about their recovery and feel that they can’t control or participate in their physical recovery. He feels that he can provider patients with some direction which leads to a greater sense of empowerment and control over their injury. Roger has interest in treating sports injuries and working with athletes and post-surgical patients. He has a specialized post graduate training in manual therapy under the Orthopedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) and he received his part A diploma in Manual and Manipulative Therapy. He also has acupuncture certification under the Canadian Acupuncture Foundation of Canada and has been practicing acupuncture since 2003 for the treatment of musculoskeletal soft tissue injuries.

What To Expect
During your 1st visit, our providers will hear the story of what brings you in, perform a new patient examination to determine the root cause of your problem, and briefly summarize what was found.
The examination consists of motion tests, palpation, reflex testing, and muscle strength, to help identify dysfunction in movement patterns and poor muscle engagement.
Report of Findings
During your second visit, your provider will recap what was found in the examination, discuss a solution, review what your personal contribution to care will be, and begin treatment on that day.
On each subsequent visit, our providers will perform routine assessments to ensure you are tracking with your treatment plan – and provide treatment.
Treatment visits typically consist of a combination of:
- Chiropractic Adjustments: Restores, maintains, and optimizes human function by eliminating interference within the joint and soft tissue thus restoring the synergy between your joints, nerves, and muscles. Chiropractic adjustments are only available during sessions with a chiropractor.
- Integrated Muscle and Joint Therapy (IMJT): An advanced, active form of soft tissue treatment that effectively integrates the mind, muscular, skeletal, and neurological systems to achieve optimum balance throughout the body. IMJT is a patented technique available exclusively at LifeClinic.
- Rehabilitation: Carefully selected exercises and activities used in a specific sequence in order to reinforce changes made with the adjustment and IMJT. Rehabilitation retrains the body’s “movement habits”
What Our Patients Say
I can honestly say that I never thought I could feel any better with the back pain that I have consistently had over the last 5 years. A completely different approach to what traditional chiropractic care looks like and it worked!! Highly recommend to anyone experiencing long term pain !!
The attention to detail is very much appreciated. Other chiropractors I have been to in the past seem to give everyone the same prescribed exercises and routines. The work I do here at the LifeClinic feels much more customized to meet my specific rehabilitative needs. It also helps the staff is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I would enthusiastically recommend the LifeClinic to anyone who wants to feel better!!!
The doctors here go above and beyond their duty to not only make you feel better but to function better in every aspect of your life. Each of my visits have given me more mobility and a better ability to not only train but enjoy it again.
