Meet our ProvidersHarbor Chiropractic uses a more systemic approach to Chiropractic medicine. Patient care is still centered around the chiropractic adjustment but the use of soft tissue modalities and therapeutic exercises are utilized often.

Dr. Ryan Canavan, D.C.
Dr. Ryan Canavan was born in Columbus, Ohio then moved to Indianapolis, Indiana. While in high school, Dr. Ryan initially became interested in how the body functioned and its ability to heal itself thus attending Indiana State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training with a focus in applied medicine and rehabilitation. Following his undergraduate degree, Dr. Ryan set forth to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida. Dr. Ryan’s appreciation and passion for helping people originated in athletic training but he was pulled towards chiropractic by the principles and goals of the profession. His interest in chiropractic was influenced by the struggles he noticed his mother go through mentally and physically with multiples injuries and countless surgeries. Chiropractic influenced him tremendously with its ability to influence the body towards proper function and optimal movement. He is grateful and looking forward to the opportunity to help people live the healthiest, happiest life possible.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Dr. Heather and her team are amazing. I suffer from lower back pain, neck pain and knee pain. She always makes me feel better. I have been to many chiropractors over the years and Dr. Heather outshines them all. I highly recommend Harbor Chiropractic.
Dr Heather and staff are amazing! From the first visit I had amazing care. When a treatment plan was difficult at first (due to my work schedule), Dr Heather worked with me to find a treatment plan that worked for me and didn’t waste my time or money! She helped me understand that it was necessary to come often at first to make sure my body was stabilized. (You can’t get abs from going to the gym only one time!) Now I only go once a month for maintenance and I feel great!
