Dr. Michael Fleming
Dr. Michael Fleming came to Anchorage in 2004 when he started Active Health Solutions. He moved to Alaska for the adventure, the beauty, and the opportunity to build a practice with a strong focus on patient centered care, advanced myofascial and joint treatment techniques, and active rehabilitation. Prior to moving to Alaska, Dr. Fleming had the great opportunity to teach classes in clinical reasoning and labs in biomechanics at his alma mater, Western States Chiropractic College. He also worked in private practice in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Mike graduated from the University of Calgary in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic in 2002 from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon, where he graduated summa cum laude.
Mike has been a Full Body certified Active Release Technique practitioner since 2002. He has further obtained Masters and Complex Protocol certifications in Active Release and has worked as an onsite provider at the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. In 2010, Mike became board certified by the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians as a sports physician. He is also a certified Graston Technique practitioner since 2014. He continues to seek out new and exciting opportunities for continuing education with a commitment to stay on top of an ever-evolving field of practice. He enjoys treating an active, and proactive, population ranging from weekend warriors to professional athletes. He has a wealth of experience in working with acute, chronic and repetitive stress injuries.
Mike was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He grew up competitively ski racing and spent 7 years as coach, 2 years as head coach, of a junior alpine ski racing program in Canada. He has also been a volunteer ski coach for the Alyeska Ski Club since 2004 and sits on the board of several local nonprofit groups. When he is not working, he enjoys skiing, water sports, hiking, traveling, and time with his family. He lives in Girdwood with his wife, Anna, and two boys, Jasper and Rogan.
Dr. Ben Cain
Dr. Ben Cain has been in practice in Anchorage since 2000. In 2008 he joined Active Health Solutions because he and Dr. Fleming share a common approach to patient care, focusing on patient education, advanced myofascial and joint treatment techniques, and active rehabilitation. He completed a 3-year post-doctoral specialty program, gaining board certification as a sports physician, allowing him to offer additional expertise in working with the injuries encountered by an active patient base. To this end he avidly seeks continuing education, and holds certification in Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, Fascial Manipulation, and Fascial Distortion Model, and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Dr. Cain grew up in northern Minnesota and attended the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, on an academic scholarship. Wishing to serve in health care while holding to an approach that focuses on education and prevention rather than the use of medications, he found the philosophy of chiropractic appealing, and enrolled at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon.
A love of seafood and winter and a fascination with mountains and oceans led him to Alaska. He has coached youth hockey and girls basketball with the Boys’and Girls’ Club of Anchorage, and has served as a sports medicine consultant with the Rage City Roller Girls. When there is ice, he will be found in hockey skates, on cross-country skis when there is snow, and on the golf course when the ground is thawed.
