Dr. Michael Hughes

My desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope developed from years of suffering with debilitating spinal pain. Daily headaches, depression, and unbearable spinal pains became my new “normal”. Due to years of seeing countless doctors and taking unending pills that only masked my condition left me hopeless.

The breaking point came as an undergraduate student at Wofford College when my pains prevented me from continuing my education.

A new day arose after my first chiropractic adjustment (something that I swore I would never ever do). My headache left me for the first time in 3 months and the spinal pains began to diminish. The relief over the next several months not only enabled me to complete my Bachelor’s of Science, but motivated me to enroll in a career where I could help others as well.

In June of 1997, I completed my Doctorate of Chiropractic with an emphasis in family care and sports injury. In addition to Chiropractic, I received a certificate to perform Chiropractic Adjunctive Physiotherapy from New York Chiropractic College. I was additionally trained at the Gonstead Clinic in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin and the Burson Clinic in Monroe, GA.

On October 15, 2007 Rutledge Wellness was born from a paradigm shift in my life where I realized that life in all respects is about balance. With all that said, I strive daily to be a Christian doctor who is motivated and directed by a higher power.

My greatest achievement is my family – my wife, Carrie, and my three children Zachary, Zoie, and Allie Jane.
