Dr. Chad Hackel
I have enjoyed providing chiropractic, acupuncture and nutritional care to Custer County, for the last 18 years at Backbone of Healthcare. I grew up on a farm near Ord Nebraska and then attended NE Community College and NE Christian College where I met my wonderful wife, Marci. Together we have four terrific children. In college I had an interest in natural healing and a desire to help others achieve good health. After much research it seemed like chiropractic would be a great fit. I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City Missouri in 2001. From there I moved to Lincoln to work at Conard-Love Chiropractic for about a year. Dr Conard specialized in alternative treatments such as nutrition, acupuncture and chiropractic. He taught me a lot about running a business and the treatment of hard cases.
In January 2003, we opened Backbone of Healthcare in Broken Bow. Since moving here I have received post doctorate certificates in Acupuncture, Cox Technique (specialized treatment for herniated discs and arthritis) and most recently Sports Certification. I really enjoy helping people suffering from herniated discs and sports injuries and many other health conditions. Continuing my education in the latest chiropractic approaches to natural health and treatment is a priority. Also, this last year our office participated in a nationwide clinical study of failed back surgeries.
Any spare time is filled with watching my kids participate in music, 4-H and sporting events. I also enjoy volunteering my time at church and church camp. If I can squeeze in a good football game or help my parents on the farm, my weekend feels complete.
