We believe in a comprehensive and balanced approach to wellness and are committed to providing the best care to each patient, whether your needs are acute, chronic, preventative or a combination of the three. Together, Doctors Garrett and Chelsea Haponski provide care from pre-natal, to cradle and all the way to senior care.

Dr. Chelsea Haponski, D.C. is from Ketchikan, Alaska and is a fourth generation chiropractor—one of twenty-plus in the family.

While at OSU, she worked in a motor clinic to help handicapped children improve their motor function. Chelsea went on to graduate Cum Laude in 2008, from Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Davenport, Iowa. Highlights of her studies included traveling to Madagascar to help treat families and orphans and being the first Palmer College student to serve as an intern at the National Naval Medical Center – Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.
Dr. Chelsea specializes in the Gonstead technique, Thompson Drop Technique, Sacro-occipital Technique (SOT), Active Release Technique (ART), Activator Methods and other methods suitable to individualized treatment for her patients.
Dr. Chelsea and Dr. Garrett met at Palmer College and married shortly before her graduation. They promptly moved to Anchorage and founded Keystone Chiropractic in 2008.
Both Doctors Garrett and Chelsea are working toward their Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) Certification.
When they aren’t working with patients to achieve optimum health, Doctors Garrett and Chelsea enjoy the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. They also enjoy being involved in the community and raising their small Alaskans.
