I highly recommend Dr. Mike to all my friends and anyone reading this. Dr. Mike is kind and amazing at his craft. I first hurt my back playing soccer. I didn’t know at the time but it was due to a misaligned SI joint. I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t walk, and my body was literally leaning in a wrong position. I originally went to a different chiropractor first and had a terrible experience. Fortunately, my PCP later referred me to Dr. Mike. Dr. Mike took a holistic approach, understood the cause of the pain, and coordinated a multi visit approach focused on stretches, massages, and exercises to ultimately align me back to tip top shape. The beauty of Dr. Mike is that he cares and he cares most about you being healthy, making sure you understand how to prevent future issues, and not being dependent on his services. I’m back to playing soccer and participating in everyday activities, and have continued to see Dr. Mike on and off for the past several years (only when I do something stupid in my athletic endeavors or just feel like I need a tuneup).

Dr. Michael is a pleasure to work with. He has a vast skill set and wonderful bedside manner. He helped me to address from some nerve issues related to my lower back and I am enormously grateful for his support.

I’ve been going to Dr. Pontarelli’s Windy City Wellness since 2018. Dr. Mike was highly recommended by another ballroom dancer when my feet started acting up. Whenever my knees ache or my neck gets stiff, I call for an appointment and get immediate relief with backup exercises to do at home.

I absolutely counted on Dr. Mike for his help to rehabilitate me and my shoulders, hips after chemo and reconstruction. He even helped with acupuncture and accompanying band movements. I felt amazing after each of my sessions and I had about 6 weeks of twice a week with him.

Dr Mike has taken excellent care of me for a long time. He takes time to listen and has helped me work through some fairly painful and debilitating episodes over almost two decades. I keep sending family and friends to see him for a range of problems and everyone comes back thrilled.

Dr. Pontarelli has been extremely helpful over the years for fixing a variety of tweaks and pain in my body. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and kind. He has not only been able to bring relief during the appointment, but has provided me with exercises to help strengthen or stretch the affected area. I highly recommend Dr Michael for your chiropractic care.

Dr. Mike has healed what ails me for over a decade. He is knowledgeable, professional, interested and creative, always working to find new ways to help heal/correct an injury or imbalance. I'm a professional acrobat, so having someone amazing on my side is essential. Dr. Mike and Windy City Wellness are amazing and I can't recommend them enough.

Dr. Pontarelli is an excellent chiropractor who integrates a variety of techniques in a deliberate and thoughtful way. He has helped me for a variety of issues (neck tension, lower back pain and hip and knee mobility) over the years with the goal of helping me understand what actions I need to take to support my body’s functioning. While I first went to Windy City Wellness in 2015, each time I have gone has been time-limited with the goal of addressing the problem and then giving me exercises to do at home to maintain my physical health. In addition to his expertise, he is a warm and caring doctor. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Pontarelli is so much more than a Chiropractor. I even hesitate to call him that as my experience with your typical one is a routine of adjustments, come back x number of times, get adjusted, rinse and repeat. He is not that! He gives you a real assessment, focuses on giving you the tools to get better and keep yourself moving with the things you can do at home. Over the years I’ve had some adjustments, a lot of stretching instructions, acupuncture, cupping with his guidance. I interact with a lot of people as a realtor and I have told so many people about him it’s hard to keep track of them. Plus he is a really awesome guy! Go see him!

Michael is a miracle worker. I went to him after pulling different times for different muscles (with rollercoaster, lifting a heavy laptop bag and doing incorrect yoga). Every single time, I walked into his office with enormous pain and walked out within an hour with the pain reduced by 60% and within a few days I even forgot about it. He is the best. He knows what he is doing and I never felt pressured to see him even for a follow-up. He even suggested some in-home exercises to resolve future issues. Michael is someone who loves what he does and you can feel it in his work. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a chiropractor. Best wishes Michael.
