Dr. Mike Poplak | Triangle Chiropractic

meet Dr. Mike Poplak

Dr. Mike Poplak has been a valued member of Triangle Chiropractic in Durham and Cary, NC, since 2013. Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, he spent his early years in Winnipeg and Toronto, Canada. Dr. Mike studied Biology at the University of Western Ontario. Afterward, Dr. Mike briefly pursued his passion for music before turning to chiropractic education.

In 2008, he graduated Magna Cum Laude from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX. Together with his wife, whom he met during Chiropractic College, they decided to build their professional lives in North Carolina. 

Dr. Mike’s journey to Chiropractic was not a traditional one.  In fact, his first adjustment was in chiropractic school.  What appealed to him was CHiropractic’s approach to full body function based care that was patient and not symptom focused.  This philosophy aligned with what his ideas of what healthcare should look like.  

Being an avid hockey player and golfer, he saw the benefit of injury prevention and performance enhancement chiropractic could offer.  All of these factos led to Mike’s post doctoral studies, including certifications in Active Release Technique (ART), Titleist Performance Institute as a fitness instructor, Functional Movement Screening (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA).  Additional education includes Webster Technique for pregnancy, Dry Needling, Graston, and Kinesio taping.  

Outside of work, Dr. Poplak still plays recreational hockey, and enjoys playing sports and music with his two sons.  Beyond his personal interests, he remains actively involved in the chiropractic community. He has served on the  North Carolina Chiropractic Association Board for the past 10 years of which he served as president for two years.  He works diligently to promote the growth and accessibility of chiropractic care in the state of North Carolina
