Girard Chiropractor: Dr. Christopher Hafely

I was a skeptic. An appointment was made for me to see a local chiropractor for neck pain and headaches I was experiencing almost daily after a minor car accident. I was reluctant but also curious… admits Dr. Christopher Hafely

dr-christopher-hafely-chiro-2020“It was incredible,” says Dr. Hafely. “I’ll never forget that first adjustment. It was as if a huge weight was suddenly lifted from my shoulders. That’s when I decided I wanted to be a chiropractor.”

Dr. Hafely began his pre-chiropractic education at Youngstown State University where he studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses.

After completing his study there, he was accepted at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO. During his four years at Logan, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Logan College Public Clinic. After graduating in 1999 Dr. Hafely returned home to the Girard area to establish his practice. He has had his practice on in Girard on Churchill Road since July of 2000.

“We love skeptics,” smiles Dr. Hafely. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate. Patients appreciate that.” It’s not unusual for our patients to have been to numerous other doctors, specialists, therapists, etc. and had every test imaginable prior to being seen in our office. We are often their last resort. These people make excellent chiropractic patients, because we have eliminated anything “medically” from being the problem and can focus from a chiropractic stand point and more often than not, get them better.

Dr. Hafely’s life outside the office

Dr. Hafely has three children, Brayden, Dominic, and Giavanna. His children have been under chiropractic care since birth.  In his free time Dr. Hafely enjoys spending time with his family and friends, camping and hiking, cooking and working in his yard.

Dr. Hafely goes on to say, “I practice what I preach. If I’m going to recommend something for one of my patients, you better believe it is the same thing I would do or would recommend for my family if they were in the same situation.” I get adjusted regularly, follow the same personalized nutrition recommendations available to my patients, and practice the same daily habits that I regularly recommend in the office”. “Why wouldn’t I, these things work!”
