About Us

Riverside Chiropractic Center Background

    In 1999, Dr. Christa Velos and Dr. Sean Gibbs were seeking a site for their business. After much research, the two decided to open Riverside Chiropractic Center of Seneca, Ltd., located at 417 S. Main St. Seneca.

     "It was a good area that needed chiropractic care," said Dr. Gibbs, originally of Ohio and a graduate of Rio Grande University. His partner, Northern Illinois University graduate Dr. Velos agreed, "We saw a need for people who needed holistic care."

     "Plus, we enjoyed the river," said Dr. Gibbs, which inspired the name of the practice.

     "We are a wellness-oriented chiropractic office offering lifestyle and workplace ergonomic consultation, massage therapy and physiotherapy," said Dr. Velos. In short Riverside Chiropractic Center caters to all needs of the body. To maintain good health a holistic approach is used along with education.

     Dr. Gibbs said, "Massage therapy will work synergically with chiropractic care to keep our patients feeling their best."

     The main objective is helping people through prevention and education in order to achieve and maintain good health, regardless their age.
