Meet Dr. Gary Schaaf

Attica Chiropractor Dr. Gary Schaaf

Dr. Gary Schaaf

I have seen plenty of chiropractic miracles…

“I didn’t experience a miracle myself, but I have seen plenty of them in chiropractic.” Having a father and mother that are chiropractors, I grew up in their office witnessing miracle after miracle; It was an incredible experience. It was then that I decided I wanted to help people experience what I was experiencing: “chiropractic miracles”, so I started my journey in chiropractic.

Chiropractic Education

After I graduated from Seneca East High School in 1985 I began my pre-chiropractic education at the University of Toledo and Eastern Iowa where I studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy.

After completing my studies there, I was accepted at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa the same college that my parents graduated from twenty five years earlier. During my four years at Palmer, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Palmer College Public Clinics. After graduating Palmer in 1991 I returned to my home town of Attica, Ohio to join my parents in practice.

“One of the things I love the most is teaching people about the human body and how it self-heals and regulates to the environment we put it in. I also enjoy watching people get well and stay well without the use of drugs or surgery. The most incredible feeling as a healer is when a mother hands her new born to me and asks me to check their spine and nerve system, the confidence they place in me and the infants body to stay well is over whelming.”

On a Personal Note

Thank you for visiting our website and for allowing me to take a moment to introduce myself and share with you how I can help you and your family live a healthy lifestyle. My name is Dr. Gary Schaaf and I am a second-generation chiropractor practicing in my hometown of Attica, Ohio. I was born and raised by two chiropractors, my parents Drs. Kenneth and Carolyn Schaaf. My parents instilled in me certain principles and practices based in chiropractic philosophy that the body is self-healing and self-regulating and that it needs no help to heal just no interference. Growing up this way brought about many health benefits for me that have created my exceptional health that I experience today. I want to share these principles and practices with you, so you too can benefit from them. Here is an interesting fact about me. The only health care I have ever received was natural. I have never run to the doctor for a pill in the hopes that it would heal me, yet here I am, fifty plus years of age and despite medicine and surgery, I’m in the best of health. What I know is that the body can and will heal automatically, our body and our lives are meant to self-heal automatically, and if this isn’t happening then there is a reason. The best way that I know of to get well and stay well is to take a pro-active approach to our own health by receiving regular chiropractic adjustments to free the nerve system of interference, eat a healthy well-balanced diet, exercise regularly and practice a healthy attitude for life. If you are not sure how to do this I am here to help, to be your coach and guide you in the proper direction in one or all of these approaches. Our practice is approaching it’s sixty second year, and for the past sixty-one years we have been perfecting principles and practices to promote a healthy approach to life and I want to share them with you and of course I want you to celebrate our sixty second year with us when that time comes. If this type of approach to your health care is attractive to you, take time to explore our website and know I am here to coach you along the way.
