Flynn Clinic

567 Corporate Drive
Houma, LA 70360



The Flynn Clinic of Chiropractic was first established in 1954. My father, Dr. John E. Flynn, upon his graduation from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa where I was born, brought his young family to Houma to begin his career as a Doctor of Chiropractic. I joined my dad after graduating from Texas Chiropractic College in 1975. It is with great pride that I follow his legacy and the lesson he taught me to care for every patient like they were a member of my extended family - and they are!

After 33 years of caring for patients I sold my practice in 2008. During the last 2 years of travel, improving my skills and working with a non-profit foundation I have decided to return to practice. I have been fortunate to have traveled to such far-away places as South Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Australia and numerous cities in Europe. On two occasions I had the privilege of representing my profession at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland where I met Kathleen Sebelius, the United States Secretary of Health, and Vice-Admiral Regina Benjamin M.D. the United States Surgeon General. Several months ago I was elected President of the World Federation of Chiropractic ( at meetings in Budapest, Hungary. This organization represents 85 countries where chiropractic is practiced.

PortugalMy wife, Darlene and I are blessed that Dr. Steve Alevizon and Dr. Lisa-Lee have invited us into Holistic Health Medical Center. These are two of the brightest and most caring medical physicians that I have ever met. We share many similar values on holistic health care, and Dr. Lisa is an accomplished acupuncturist. I am excited about the opportunity to care for patients at this beautiful facility. I will be expanding this website in the coming months to include pictures of our travel and articles on positive thinking that I have written monthly for over four years for Point of Vue Magazine.

We live in an over-medicated, overweight, undernourished and highly stressed society. My care of patients includes advice on healthy living and coping with health problems. Nutrition, exercise and encouraging an optimistic attitude is part of my care. Chiropractic is a conservative treatment for neck/back pain and headaches with gentle and effective hands-on manual methods for patients of all ages.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and remember always to feed the right wolf! ~ Dr. Mike Flynn

A Cherokee Legend

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside of me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - full of anger, envy, regret, greed, jealousy, arrogance, resentment, false pride and lies. He continued, " the other one is good - full of joy, peace, love, hope, kindness, generosity, compassion, truth and faith."

"The same fight is going on inside of you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "the one you feed."
