Meet the Doctors
Dr. Brian Kelchen grew up in a home where chiropractic care was part of his life since he was three years old. Dr. Kelchen played all sports in high school and received chiropractic care for sports injuries of various kinds. In college, Dr. Kelchen played football and track and field and with the numerous hits and falls he suffered, Dr. Kelchen’s chiropractor and his staff got me moving again so he could rejoin his team and keep playing. Dr. Kelchen experienced first-hand the recuperative power of adjustments and muscle therapy.
Spending long hours concentrating on his studies in college always gave him headaches and chiropractic care helped him with those as well. All of Dr. Kelchen’s personal experiences with chiropractic led him to join the profession that had helped him for so long. Dr. Kelchen knew that he wanted to help others just like him.
Dr. Kelchen graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport IA. This was the start of his career as a chiropractor. Dr. Kelchen has helped a lot of patients with back, neck, and extremity related problems over the years. One that stands out in Dr. Kelchen’s mind is a 40 year old mother of two who came into the clinic with severe knee pain. She had already had surgery on the other knee with little improvement in symptoms. After a few weeks of treatment, she was out walking and even playing tennis with no pain in either knee. She continues to do well today.
Dr. Kelchen’s goal is to educate people on the power of chiropractic and help them reach their optimal level of wellness. Dr. Kelchen is here to enable people to get better. It does not matter what age, sex, or fitness level you are at. Dr. Kelchen is dedicated to helping you feel better through chiropractic care. Dr. Kelchen looks forward to helping people in Libertyville and surrounding communities for years to come. Please call Libertyville Wellness Group and we will start you on a new path of wellness.
Dr. Sean Royer found his calling in life after he suffered a back injury playing high school football. He was able to return to the field of play after visiting a chiropractor and it became a changing point in his life. After he returned to the field he went onto receive a football scholarship from Valparaiso University. He found his calling and focused on a Biology/Chemistry major and associated coursework to get into chiropractic college.
He attended the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and focused his study on anatomy, biomechanics and nutrition. His pathway returned him to the Chicagoland area where he furthered his education by earning a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician degree from the National College of Chiropractic.
The challenges of the field of play returned him to the gridiron as on on the field Doctor for many local High Schools. His focus became working with athletes and returning them to competition by utilizing strength and conditioning, nutrition and proper alignment.
His nutritional background and passion to compete would find him a pathway onto the bodybuilding stage. Dr. Royer has competed as a light heavyweight bodybuilder in the national physique committee which was capped off by winning the 2012 light heavyweight class at Team Universe in Teaneck, New Jersey.
When not in the office Dr. Royer enjoys teaching and coaching baseball. He appreciates the fundamental aspects of hitting and loves working in the cage doing hitting lessons. He is married to his wife Melissa and has three teenage boys.
Dr. Brad Hargis has always lived a very active lifestyle and with this came plenty of experience inside a chiropractic office. He played football, basketball, and track, and always relied on his local chiropractor to get him performing at his highest level. These experiences made him want to learn everything there is to learn about the human body so that he can deliver the same level of care that he received growing up.
Dr. Hargis graduated from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. He enjoys working with all kinds of patients; everything from the 60 year old grandmother struggling with chronic lower back pain to the high school track star who wants to get back to top shape.
Dr. Hargis is passionate about patient empowerment. He does not want you to have to rely on medications and surgery to get you out of pain. He wants to put the power back in your hands and remind you that your body is strong, capable, and you can do anything. No matter where you’re at, Dr. Hargis is here to help.
