Dr. Craig Chavis DC

Dr. Craig Chavis graduated from Logan University in 1995 obtaining the degree of Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology. He started his chiropractic career in 1996 in Hanover, Pa., where he owned and operated Integrated Health Center. He opened his Bel Air practice in 2001 and was chosen from applicants across the country as one of only 25 chiropractors to join the panel of physicians who helped train the 2003-2004 decathlon team hopefuls in preparation for the Olympic games in Athens, Greece.

 

Dr. Chavis has worked with residents all over the country, but currently has been serving the chiropractic needs of Harford County for the past 16 years. He has experience working with athletes of all ages, in sports including baseball, basketball, football, soccer, lacrosse, softball, swimming, track & field, cross-country, and golf. He relates well to athletes and understands their desire to compete at a high level, as well as their need to recover from injury as quickly and completely as possible.

 

Dr. Chavis has experience working with patients of all ages, shapes, and backgrounds. Many of the same techniques and approaches utilized with athletics can be advantageously applied to general population patients, especially those involved in an auto accident.
