When Dr. Chappie and his wife Gina decided to open Greentree Chiropractic & Rehab back in 2006 – they both had one goal in mind, which was to help as many patients they could in educating everyone on living a healthy & active lifestyle. They live a natural lifestyle & always try to choose organic products, exercise regularly & balance family life with their Chiropractic practice, Greentree Chiropractic & Rehab & their gym, Pittsburgh Kettlebell & Performance.
In Dr. Chappie’s personal life, he still remains active by working out, training at Pittsburgh Kettlebell & Performance, & coaching the Pittsburgh Angels Rugby Team. But his favorite past time is spending time with his lovely wife, Gina & their furry children, Bella (Rottweiler/Lab mix), FoxyBrown (Teacup Yorkshire Terrier) & Peanut (Calico Cat)!
