Chiropractor in State College | Dr. Joel Casteel

Sixty years ago something happened that changed my life forever…

I’m sure you’re wondering how something 60 years ago could change my life. My grandfather graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic to become the first Chiropractor in our family. In 1952 he moved into the Clearfield area and opened up the first Casteel Chiropractic Office. All three of his sons, one of whom is my dad, become Chiropractors. I always knew growing up if I started feeling sick or started to have any pain, I could simply get a Chiropractic Adjustment. No Drugs, no surgery, and no scary procedures at the hospital. It worked so well that I went to chiropractic school myself, and have never looked back.

Chiropractic Education

Dr. Casteel began his pre-chiropractic education at Penn State University where he studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses.

After completing his study there, he was accepted at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. During his four years at Palmer, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Palmer College Clinic. After graduating in 2000 Dr. Casteel returned to Central Pennsylvania and worked as an associate for a few years then opened his State College practice in 2003.

On a personal note…

Dr. Casteel, enjoys spending lots of time with his friends and family, especially outdoors. When not in the office, Dr. Casteel can typically be found in the mountains hiking, fishing, hunting, or downhill skiing.

The Casteel Chiropractic of State College Difference

More often than not, my patients become friends and I not only enjoy caring for their health and their family’s health as a chiropractor but we become part of each others lives. I look forward to seeing my ‘friends’ and celebrating their personal highs, as well embracing and supporting them when times get tough. We end up helping each other with each visit in my office through this journey called life.
