Dr. Heather Crawford, D.C., CCSP®

Originally from central Pennsylvania, Dr. Heather Crawford has lived in Bradenton, FL since early childhood. A graduate of Florida State University with a degree in exercise science with an emphasis in exercise physiology, she has always had a fascination for the human body. As a lifelong athlete – a competitive gymnast, three-time high school weightlifting state champion, All-Star cheerleader, and FSU cheerleader – her career in chiropractic and body work just made sense.

Dr. Heather earned her doctorate degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL. She is one of the area’s only physicians that is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physcian® endorsed by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians™. In 2016, Dr. Heather and her husband, Randall, welcomed their daughter, Hadley. They decided one baby was not enough and Harbor Chiropractic was born with the purpose of providing the Bradenton area with premier chiropractic services and rehabilitative care.

Dr. Heather is well-versed in a variety of treatments, including hands-on adjustments of the spinal column and extremities, adjustments using an Activator, flexion-distraction, Webster’s technique for pregnant mothers, sacro-occipital technique (SOT), instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), spinal therapeutic rehabilitation exercises, kinesiology taping and acupuncture. She is also a proud member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Dr. Heather is excited to help heal her hometown community and assist patients in achieving their best health yet.

Dr. Ryan Canavan, D.C.

Dr. Ryan Canavan initially became interested in how the body functioned and the ability to heal itself while in high school in Indianapolis. He then attended Indiana State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in athletic training with a focus in applied medicine and rehabilitation. Following undergrad, Dr. Ryan set off for Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL.

While Dr. Ryan’s passion for helping people originated in athletic training, he was drawn into chiropractic by the principles and goals of the profession – influencing the body towards proper function and optimal movement. His interest in chiropractic began when he saw the mental and physical struggles his mother experienced with multiple injuries and countless surgeries. He always looks forward to guiding people with acute and chronic pain to return to their daily activities.

Dr. Ryan offers hands-on adjustments, instrument assisted adjustments (Activator and Arthrostim) and kinesiology taping and is experienced in flexion-distraction and Webster’s technique for pregnant mothers. He is also a strong advocate of regularly incorporating therapeutic exercises into care, which improves the overall strength and mobility of the body. Dr. Ryan is grateful for the opportunity to help people live the healthiest, happiest life possible.

Dr. Stephanie Korman, D.C.

Dr. Stephanie Korman is Harbor Chiropractic’s amazing Palmetto clinic physician. She spent most of her life in the Midwest, particularly Wisconsin, and moved to Florida after graduating from chiropractic college. Dr. Stephanie knew she wanted to pursue a science and healthcare-based career in high school and began working towards a biology degree at the University of Wisonsin-Madison. She spent the first and a half of undergrad learning about various healthcare fields, never finding the one that felt “right” – the one that fueled her passion.

After suffering a lower back injury and seeing a chiropractor, Dr. Stephanie felt at home. She became a regular patient and quickly fell in love with the way chiropractic care alleviated her discomfort and educated her on why she experienced pain in the first place. After completing her undergrad program at UW-Madison, Dr. Stephanie jumped straight into her chiropractic graduate program at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA.

Dr. Stephanie is well-versed in a variety of adjusting and soft tissue techniques, including use of an Activator, flexion-distraction, Palmer Package (Diversified and Thompson), McKenzie Method, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) and Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques (Cupping, Gua Sha, and Graston). She looks forward to helping patients regain function, range of motion, and feel better in their daily lives.
