Meet Dr. Joseph Snell

dr-jpe-snell-2019With a mother who was a nurse and a brother who was an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Snell came from a health-oriented family. Dr Snells’s son, Dr. Eric Snell, has also dedicated his life to healing others, and is an emergency room physician in Madison, WI. Chiropractic was a second career for him as he used to be a psychologist. “I decided that I wanted to get more on the physical part of healing instead of the mental. I felt I had something to offer as far as helping to heal people.”

Education and Memberships

Dr. Snell graduated with honors from Logan College of Chiropractic, earning his Doctor of Chiropractic. Additionally, he has certification in scoliosis treatment and surface EMG. He’s a member of the following:

  • American Chiropractic Association
  • Christian Chiropractic Association
  • Illinois Chiropractic Society
  • McLean County Chamber of Commerce
  • Diplomat of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners

A Passion for Helping Others Naturally

“I looked at alternative healing because of the problems that the medical field had with the complications with their procedures, and the side effects of drugs.” Dr. Snell has always gravitated toward taking a natural approach to health so decided to go into the field of medication-free healing.

Witnessing the Effects of Chiropractic

For Dr. Snell, one of the most fulfilling aspects of his job is helping people who were unable to find relief elsewhere. He’s assisted patients with low back pain, neck pain, gastrointestinal issues and even infertility. “Some patients would come in with low back pain and struggle with infertility. After clearing the neural pathways to the sexual organs, they not only got out of pain but were able to conceive.”

Dr. Snell also had has had patients who were in so much pain that it affected their entire life and their family life. When they started feeling better physically, it positively impacted their relationships with other people. “With chiropractic, you can handle the stressors of life much better.”

Outside the Practice

When he’s not at the practice, Dr. Snell enjoys playing music. He’s been in many bands, including a Beatles tribute band (he played John Lennon), and plays the guitar, drums, harmonica and keyboard. He’s also worked gigs as an Elvis impersonator! Dr. Snell is also a pilot and has his own airplane. He’s been flying for more than 20 years. Golf is another one of his hobbies and he belongs to the local country club.
