At Meier Family Chiropractic, we focus on an advanced chiropractic technique known as The Gonstead System. This form of chiropractic in Urbandale is designed for long term results rather than temporary fixes.

When a neuro-structural shift (subluxation) occurs in the spine, the body begins to malfunction, break down, and eventually become what most people call “sick”. Common signs of these shifts include pain, headache, weakness, loss of balance, and muscle tension.

Over time, when enough breakdown has occurred, the vertebral misalignment in the spine begins to interfere with the nervous system, causing much more than just simple pain. Inevitably, secondary conditions will occur. When this happens, it is imperative to go to a chiropractic clinic well-versed in advanced chiropractic techniques.

Secondary conditions can include:

​Pain, neck pain, torticollis, headaches, migraines, PMS, infertility, asthma, hyperactivity, numbness/tingling, hunched back, head tilt, foot flare, muscle weakness, recurrent infections/colds/cough, leg pain, constipation, bed-wetting, lower back pain, dizziness, weakness, loss of balance, herniated discs, and many more.

It’s important to utilize a specific chiropractic care technique like the Gonstead Method in order to get you back to proper alignment. When your back is in proper alignment your body is capable of healing and functioning better.


There are many different issues and conditions that bring patients in to seek chiropractic care. The great thing about Gonstead Chiropractic is that the advanced chiropractic system is so comprehensive, we are qualified to see patients of all ages and demographics!


At Meier Family Chiropractic, we take pride in the level of detail given to each patient’s case. Using the Gonstead Method, we approach the spine with a foundational strategy. It’s important to establish a robust foundation to help stabilize the spine above. X-ray imaging is incredibly helpful in assessing the biomechanical strength of your spine to maximize results. Furthermore, we focus on how your daily habits and repetitive actions contribute to the inflammation your body is experiencing.


Many of our patients come to us in search of pain relief. They may experience back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, sciatica, arm pain, leg pain, or shoulder pain.

The issues may stem from carpal tunnel, scoliosis, pregnancy, sports injuries, an accident, prolonged sitting, high stress, trauma, long travel, or various other factors.

The good news is we offer advanced chiropractic care that can help all of the issues above and many more. Book your “new patient appointment” to get a thorough analysis and see how we might be able to help you get back to living pain-free.
