Meet Dr. L. Lee Lausch
Suffering in Pain for Years
A track athlete in college, Dr. Lee tore his hamstring in the long jump and experienced severe low back and sciatic pain. He went through the team’s doctors, therapists and trainers with no results. For over three years, he tried to live with the pain. “My cousin, Dr. Tim Zook, who had just graduated from chiropractic college, finally found the cause of my problem. I created an imbalance when I rehabilitated my hamstring injury. We worked on restoring that balance, and meanwhile, I became convinced that I needed to be a chiropractor.”
Dr. Lee attended Life University, the same place his cousin had recently graduated from. During his time there, he enjoyed being involved in the school’s athletic program. He also had the opportunity to study Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP®) under its founder, Dr. Donald Harrison.
Since earning his Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Lee has earned a certification from the American Functional Neurology Institute. He sees many types of patients, including those who are suffering from chronic issues.
Dr. Lee and his wife, Dr. Michele, who met at Life, have a young son, Levi, who keeps them busy outside of the office. Levi is on the autism spectrum, and Dr. Lee does a great deal of research on the subject. He’s a graduate of Cocalico Senior High School and was the football team’s chiropractor for 18 seasons. He works with many high school and professional athletes from our area.
In his spare time, Dr. Lee and his wife enjoy visiting farm-to-table restaurants. He also developed the FitStrength program at Proactive Pain Relief & Wellness and is constantly working on improving his patient care.
Between her sophomore and junior year of college, Dr. Michele knew it was time to figure out what she wanted to do and took a break from studying. It was during this time that she got into a serious car accident, experiencing significant injuries and whiplash. She went to physical therapists, orthopedists and other professions, but none could help. “I was popping pain relievers all the time, and finally couldn’t take any more. A chiropractor had just opened an office in town, and my dad suggested I give it a try. He took X-rays and showed me where the problem was in my neck that was causing my pain. Within two weeks, I was so much better!” It took only a couple of more weeks for Dr. Michele to determine that she, too, wanted to be a chiropractor and help others.
Dr. Michele enrolled at Life University near Atlanta, Georgia, the same institution her chiropractor had attended. She met Dr. Lee when she was teaching a course on pediatric chiropractic, and he was a student teacher in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP).
“CBP made the most sense, looking at the body from a mathematical, biomechanical approach.” She uses this method on many of the patients she sees and especially enjoys helping senior citizens.
Dr. Michele holds a certification from the American Functional Neurology Institute.
When she isn’t at the office, Dr. Michele and Dr. Lee spend their time with their son Levi and their dog L.J. She enjoys creating healthy alternatives to typical foods, making sure to consider Levi’s allergies and food sensitivities. He was adopted locally and is Dr. Michele’s biggest muse when she is indulging her favorite pastime, photography. You’ll even see her pictures up at the office.
