We offer a variety of services to companies in our community at no charge as a community service.
As we all watch health related costs continue to rise, there is still hope on the horizon. Studies show that 50% of Americans have some form of chronic disease accounting for 75% of health care costs. The encouraging part is that 80% of these are preventable through lifestyle changes.
Our mission at Chappell Chiropractic Wellness Center is to give back to our community. We have 31 years of experience helping individuals, families, and companies increase their awareness about simple changes they can make that can have a significant influence on their health and well-being.
As awareness increases, individuals are empowered and more likely to make lifestyle choices that help them be prepared for the physical and psychological demands of work. Healthier, happier employees benefit the company through increased productivity, less sick days, improved concentration, fewer mistakes, and decreased healthcare costs.
It’s a win – win – win situation for all involved. The company benefits by having healthier employees with increased productivity, decreased healthcare costs, and reduced incidence of injury. Employees benefit through an improved state of health, a higher quality of life, and less chance of injury. As leaders in our profession, we get the opportunity to further our mission of increasing the health and wellness of our community.
Give us a call to answer any questions and find a convenient time we can meet to explore your needs and concerns and how we can service you.

Dr. Chappell is a certified Worksafe presenter. Worksafe is a free, on-site, back safety and ergonomic employee training program that is funded through a Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) safety grant. Its purpose is to save companies time and money by reducing preventable back and ergonomic injuries. For more information go to http://www.macworksafe.com.
COMPUTERIZED STRESS SCREENING
This personalized screening process can be done at your company’s location. It incorporates technology utilized by the astronauts on the space shuttle Challenger, only takes several minutes, and evaluates how well the person is adapting to physical and emotional stress in their life.
If we uncover imbalances and problems in the neuro-muscular system the employee has the opportunity to proactively resolve problems early thus reducing the possibility of work related aggravation or injury leading to a workers compensation claim.
Assist employees to learn how to interface with their work environment more appropriately to reduce stress on their physical bodies. Correct workstation setup reduces muscular tension that can lead to back, neck, and shoulder pain, repetitive strain injuries, headaches, and fatigue.
Prevention of injuries is a key focus. It results in even greater savings to the company by reducing lost time due to full disability; costs associated with retraining to a new position, hiring and training a new employee, and increased insurance premiums. In addition, I am certified to present the Worksafe: Back Injury Prevention Program offered through a grant from the State of Michigan Department of Consumer and Industry Services. This program is available only to specific types of businesses.

“Dear Dr. Chappell,
A long overdue note but I wanted to say thank you again for stopping by the Sales and Conference Services Office at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa to help us determine if our work stations were ergonomic. Your help is invaluable!
I have to tell that I have personally benefited greatly from your suggestions. I appreciate your understanding that buying new desks, chairs, etc. wasn’t an option at this time for my team and loved your ideas for making what I have work better for us. The simple changes of chair and monitor height made a huge impact; I felt less tired throughout the day and the strain on my body isn’t nearly what it used to be. As you know from my adjustments, the places that were always the worst have definitely improved, all because of the way I sat at my desk for 9+ hours every day. There are positive side effects as well including better sleep, less headaches and better overall posture. My team members have also said the same and appreciated the visit from you to help keep them working healthy!
I would highly recommend this service to others. Organizations spend a lot of time on training for prevention of slips & falls, lifting guidelines or general safety concerns and often times, the office worker gets overlooked. This simple 5 minute consultation can really save the company money and lost time.
Thank you again!
Colleen Brzozowski – Grand Traverse Resort

Dr. Chappell –
Thank you for coming to my office and adjusting my work station to be ergonomically correct. It has helped me maintain better posture and alleviated pain I was experiencing from all the computer work I do.
