Learn How Chiropractic Can Help You.



Many Upstate residents suffer with neck and back problems that are affecting their work, play, and family lives. They desire a natural solution but are nervous about trying Chiropractic. At our office, we offer treatment techniques that don’t have to include “popping” the spine, but still provide effective, natural pain relief and improved mobility. We help our patients get well and back to their normal lives as quickly as possible. We also offer the latest in therapeutic modalities and rehabilitation exercises, including state-of-the art cold laser therapy by Erchonia ( to facilitate healing and improve patient outcomes.



I have been under chiropractic care since infancy, and joined the family business in 2002, as a practicing Doctor of Chiropractic.

I’ve enjoyed helping the people of the Upstate these several years and have also appreciated the opportunity to give back to the community and profession that has blessed me so much.

I had the opportunity to serve on the South Carolina Chiropractic Association board of directors for many years and was elected to serve as President in 2016. I was humbled to be awarded Chiropractor of the Year for the state of South Carolina in June of 2017. What an honor! I am also a member of the American Chiropractic Association, the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, and am an Integrity Doctors Elite Practitioner.

I married my high school sweetheart in 2001. Her name is Ryanne. We both went to Dorman before going to different colleges. She got her Masters of Accountancy through USC and later acquired her CPA license. She now works with me in the office. We are blessed to have three beautiful children.

My practice consists of patients in the ages of pediatrics through geriatrics, patient’s who desire wellness and peak performance, or who may have injured their spine due to overuse, vehicular accidents, improper/repetitive exercises, job-related accidents, wear and tear or yard work. I want to help my patients be as healthy as I have been through chiropractic care!

In addition to helping patients reach their true health potential, I also enjoy writing and have published two books: Thy Will Be Done? Trusting God in the Midst of Suffering, Pain, or Loss and Every Little Thing: Six Small Steps to Perfect Peace.  Links for both are below.



My journey to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic began when I was attending the University of South Carolina to be a Sports Medicine provider. Dr Gabe’s dad, Dr David “Rusty” Ivey, explained the benefits of chiropractic and suggested I look into changing career paths because he thought I’d make a great Doctor. Looks like he was right! I graduated Sherman Chiropractic College in 1999, and have been in private practice since helping thousands of patients from pediatrics to geriatrics and everyone in between. It’s been a great 20+ years, and I’m so thankful to be serving my community to this day!

Dr. Candelaria’s vision for the health of the community is to help improve people’s quality of life without the use of invasive treatments. Her focus will be to serve the Spartanburg community so people may live a safer and independent lifestyle by trusting in their body’s innate abilities to heal itself and adapt optimally to their daily lives. As a chiropractor, her mission will be to serve as a guide for people to take control of their lives, feel supported, listened to, and be seen like as essential in today’s society. Finally, Dr. Candelaria’s purpose as a chiropractor is based on the hope for humanity’s brighter future as everyone deserves a second chance for a better life.



I am a lifetime resident of Spartanburg. I enlisted in the Army National Guard in 2004 and graduated from Dorman High School in 2005. In 2009 I graduated from USC-Upstate with a degree in Physical Education. During my time there, I was also involved with the ROTC at Wofford. I had the opportunity to attend Army Airborne school, Air Assault school, and other leadership events. After graduating in 2009, I attended the Army’s Infantry Basic Officer Leadership Course. Upon completion, I began working in District six as a P.E teacher and Special Needs assistant. In 2012, I married my wife and deployed to Kosovo for about a year. After returning, I applied to Sherman College of Chiropractic where I served as an XRI intern in the Radiology department. During that time we also adopted our son Jonathan. After graduating in 2017, I went into private practice on the Westside of Spartanburg until Oct 2022 when I got the opportunity to join the Ivey-O’Sullivan team. My wife and I now have three wonderful children and I’m very excited to continue to serve the people of Spartanburg.
