“Find the subluxation. Accept it where you find it. Correct it. Leave it Alone.”
Hello, my name is Gabriel Smith and I grew up close by, in Dike. After graduating from Dike-New Hartford High School, I attended UNI and received my bachelors degree in biology. I went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport to receive my doctorate, while spending extra hours specializing in the
Gonstead Method of Chiropractic Care.
I originally found chiropractic being under care myself, for hip and low back pain. I started seeing several other benefits under care with relief from my migraines, digestive problems, and found better coordination! I became a Chiropractor to share some of these benefits and more with the rest of the world.
I look forward to meeting you!
The idea behind Chiropractic is really quite simple. Our brain controls our entire body with constant messages. It tells our heart when to beat, our lungs when to breath, and our feet when to walk. The way it does this is through the nervous system. Our spinal cord is what carries these messages down the spinal column. Between each of our vertebrae in our backs, there are small holes where nerves leave the spinal cord and travel to the body. If one of our vertebrae moves out of its original alignment with the others, it will cause one of these existing nerves to be pinched. When this occurs, and nerve messages can’t flow like they should, we call it a “subluxation”.
A subluxation is a lot like a kink in a water hose. Normally, water is allowed to pass freely through the hose, much like messages from our spinal column to our bodies. But if we have a kink in the hose, or a subluxation, water and the brains messages aren’t allowed to flow like they should.
Chiropractic Care benefits the whole family, from newborn baby to 105 year olds!
By scheduling your first visit, you’re taking an exciting step toward better health. Specific Chiropractic Care is different, as it offers one of the best ways to get well & stay well in a timely fashion. So, there’s hope… for a variety of conditions! After completing brief paperwork, you will meet with the doctor who will get to know you & the purpose for your visit.
After careful hands-on assessment, Digital X-rays will give the doctor the final analysis of your spinal column and pelvis, showing the quality of your spinal conditions and the specific direction of any misalignments present.
If a subluxation is detected, the doctor will perform a specific adjustment with a gentle thrust, using very specific hand contacts on predetermined points to allow restoration of nerve function. With the irritation & swelling removed from the nerve, you should gradually feel relief of pain and symptoms that brought you to our office as your body begins to heal. Healing takes time, but you are most definitely in the right place at Grundy Center Chiropractic.

I grew up in a small community in northeast Iowa and moved to the Cedar Valley as a UNI student. After graduation, I settled down with my future husband and have since fallen in love with Cedar Falls, the surrounding communities, and all things Iowa. I am so happy to be a part of this team because I know that every day, we are working hard to better the lives of each and every person that comes in for care. I value the Gonstead method for the integrity required of its chiropractors, who strive to follow its founder’s rule of practice to “Find the subluxation. Accept it where you find it. Correct it. Leave it Alone”. Knowing that I work with professionals who will provide care only where treatment is necessary and beneficial to the patient allows me to feel good about the work I do. I love being involved in a wellness-oriented office that supports and encourages my desire to pursue a healthy lifestyle so that outside of work I can be my best self, and I am passionate about encouraging others to do the same. In my free time, I enjoy spending as much time in nature as possible while accompanied by my husband, son, and two dogs. You can find us doing just about any outdoor recreational activity in all seasons of the year, though it should be known that I am just as big a fan of Sunday afternoon naps in our hammock as I am of being on the move!
