About Dr. Garvey

Dr. Garvey was born and raised in Parkersburg, WV.    During high school, Dr. Garvey was an accomplished gymnast. During training, he suffered a severe injury to his neck and was no longer able to compete.  After receiving no help with conventional medical care, Dr. Garvey decided to visit a chiropractor. 

Dr. Garvey’s injuries made great improvement with chiropractic care and he knew that was the direction he wanted his life to take, helping others.
After completing necessary courses in Parkersburg, Dr. Garvey moved his family to Marietta, GA, where he attended Life Chiropractic College and graduated in 1983.

He returned to his hometown and opened a private practice in the Traffic Circle, known as Parkersburg Chiropractic Center.  Parkersburg Chiropractic Center is still in the same location since opening in 1983.

Dr. Garvey is married to Diane and they have two children, six grandchildren, & one great grandchild.

Parkersburg Chiropractic is truly a family practice.  The office is staffed by Dr. Garvey's wife, Diane and their daughter, Jennefir.
