Welcome to Gonstead Family Chiropractic


We want to help you get back to living life again.  Check out our Symptom Illustrator and our Blog, we try to keep you updated on the latest chiropractic research and results we have seen in our office.  With four locations in Northwestern PA,  you’re never too far away from relief.

We pride ourselves on giving our patients an honest, straightforward opinion about their treatment.  Don’t take our word for it, read just a small sampling of what patients from all four of our offices are saying:


“I am one of Dr Jackson’s original patients. After two neck surgeries he was very thorough in checking what he can and can’t do with me. He is the only Chiropractor I will let adjust me. An Erie neurosurgeon said Gonstead Chiropractic is the only place he will recommend in Meadville.”  – Ruth

“Dr. Walker does a fabulous job. I even trust him to adjust my child!!!”  – Carolyn

“Dr. Mealy was able to help when I didn’t think anyone could. The Gonstead Method makes sense and I highly recommend!”  – Jocelyn

“My back hurts all the time. They are the only people that have been able to make it feel better.” – Ryan

“Dr. Brad is the best and always fits me in if I am in dire need of his services. I always recommend Gonstead to family and friends as I have had some pretty severe complications going to a different type of chiropractor in the past. Because of that I will never go anywhere else!”  – Rachel

“I have seen both doctors in the Meadville office as well as the one in Franklin. They are all very nice and good at explaining the problem as well as how to fix it. They don’t just feel around and guess they actually take x-rays so they know what the problem is. Then they only fix the problem areas and allow your back to heal on its own once the problem areas are corrected. I have been to several other chiroproctors in the past and I will never go to a non Gonstead chiropractor ever again. Best of all they can usually get you in the same day you call thanks to their efficient system.”  – Tori

Digital Degenerative Change

I have viewed enough X-rays to see trends. There is a normal curve in our cervical spine. The curve is increased when we look up. It is decreased when we look down. The trend I see is that younger patients are showing a decreased or even reversed curve when in a neutral posture. This has […]

Is Chiropractic Safe For People That Have Had Spinal Surgery?

The answer is a resounding yes, and with people that have fusions I highly recommend it. The range of motion of your spine is shared by multiple vertebrae moving together all at one time. For example, when you turn your head to the right the seven vertebrae in your neck share the work and the […]

Can Chronic Childhood Ear Infections Be Helped By Chiropractic Care?

Does your child get a lot of ear infections? If so, a spinal checkup may be an important consideration. Not all ear infections may be associated with a spinal joint problem, but if they are a common occurrence for your child, finding out why they may be happening is of value. Sometimes nerve pressure from […]
