Gonstead Family Chiropractic has adjusted its location.

The business, which is owned by Dr. Steven Mitchell, has moved to 41 N. Center St. and is now consulting with patients out of its new space.

"We have more room and the flow of the office is better," Mitchell said. "I think it's a better fit for us as to how we practice."

Gonstead is a chiropractic technique that utilizes X-rays to pinpoint a patient's exact problem. 

"We make absolutely sure of the areas we are working so there are no mistakes made," Mitchell said.

Mitchell's practice was established 11 years ago in 2005 at its former location, 204 N. Center St., across from the Library Bar and Grill. His assistant, Vicki Miles, has been with Mitchell from the beginning.

"We had been looking to move for a few years as we started to outgrow our space," Mitchell said. "I definitely wanted to stay downtown. We really like being here. When we found this building, it was great because it was a big empty shell."

The new space, which is about 2,000 square feet, features a front office, main treatment room, X-ray room, business office and large waiting room.

In addition to treating back problems and other related issues, Mitchell also offers general health counseling.

"I really want my patients to be proactive about their health, not reactive," he said.

Mitchell is a 1997 graduate of Corry Area High School. He earned his undergraduate degree from Saint Francis University and graduated from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa.

Upon earning his chiropractic degree, he returned to Corry and opened Gonstead Family Chiropractic.

Mitchell and his wife, Angela, have three children, Weston, 9, Elijah, 7, and Finley, 5.

"I'm blessed to have this job and the community has taken such good care of me," Mitchell said. "I love the way things work in a small town. If you take care of your patients, they take care of you."

Gonstead Family Chiropractic is accepting new patients and can be reached at 664-7595. 

Hours of operation are Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Fridays from 6:30 a.m. to noon and Saturdays by appointment.
