Meet Dr. Mitch Hayman

Learning from the Best

“Chiropractic is a family thing for me. My father, uncle, brother, little sister, two brothers-in-law, six cousins and a nephew are all chiropractors! We’re all spread out over the U.S. from here to California. I learned all about chiropractic from my late father, who was an intensely hard worker, putting in 12-hour days.

He was the busiest chiropractor in all of southern Illinois. I watched him save lives while I was growing up. He even built a 26-room clinic that was attached to our house. The clinic, which was in the middle of nowhere, featured whirlpool baths and rooms for coal miners to sleep in.”

An Injury Changed My Path

“I was starting out in the newspaper business before I became a chiropractor. Then, I experienced a bad injury that made me change my mind. One night I was out walking and hurt my sacroiliac joint. It was so painful, I was in bed for three days. I was driven back to my hometown to get an adjustment from my dad. I was able to walk out of the office on my own right after, and it solidified that chiropractic was what I wanted to do.”

A Balancing Act

Dr. Hayman attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO to receive his Doctor of Chiropractic. So many family members had already been through chiropractic school, so Dr. Hayman knew to expect a heavy workload. He made it through while having a wife, child and a part-time job. It all went by quickly and Dr. Hayman started practicing in 1999.

Outside of the Office

Dr. Hayman and his wife Angie enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. In the summer, they love to spend as much time as possible on the banks of the Ohio River. He enjoys golf and camping. Dr. Hayman and Angie also like to cook, often choosing difficult dishes and making them together. They’re animal lovers — the only animal they’re missing at home is a goat, now that they finally have chickens! Dr. Hayman is a St. Louis Cardinals fanatic. He supports the Kiwanis and The Salvation Army.
