Meet The Doctors
Dr. Michelle (Morgan) Rickelman
Dr. Michelle (Morgan) Rickelman was born and raised in Quincy, Illinois. She grew up playing several different sports as a younger child; then transitioned into owning, riding, and showing horses from Junior high school all the way through college. She credits a lot of life lessons to owning and showing her horses. They instilled in her patience, kindness, compassion, and the keen eye of seeing small discrepancies in movement. She showed horses from local competition up to national competitions, winning numerous ribbons and awards. In her free time, Dr. Michelle enjoys riding horses, spending time with family, hunting, fishing, and meeting new people.
She attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUe) where she received her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and then went onto Logan College of Chiropractic and received her Bachelor of Science in Human Biology along with her Doctor of Chiropractic. While Dr. Michelle attended Logan, she strived to learn, which included many weekend seminars and attending extra activities during her lunch break at school. She treated patients at clinic in St. Peters, Missouri where Dr. Michelle was able to treat an age range from 18 months up to 91 years young! She had her internship at Healthy Lifestyles Wellness Center where she learned invaluable information to help prepare her to open up Created For Motion. A few continuing education classes she is learning more about is: Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, Neurokinetic Therapy, and Motion Palpation Institute.

Dr. Michelle also enjoys working out and the community at QTown Crossfit. She also helps out Special Olympics Area 11 by doing school physicals and donating proceeds to an up and coming Sprint Triathlon.
Dr. Michelle couldn’t imagine doing anything else besides chiropractic. She had suffered on and off neck pain for several years throughout high school. While attending SIUe, she went to a chiropractor to see what he could do for her neck pain. Several appointments later, she started feeling better. She has always wanted to help people and this experience opened her eyes to what else could be done besides taking a medication.
