Meet Our Team

Chiropractor Zach Beatty D.C.

Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, Dr. Zach participated in numerous sports. With his athletic background came injuries. He firmly believes that chiropractic care makes a tremendous impact on athletic performance as well as general health. His chiropractic wheels began turning when he was only 15, while watching his sister get chiropractic care, which allowed her to continue her athletic career. He was fortunate enough to have had this monumental moment take place in a Gonstead practitioners office.

He continued to pursue both his athletic as well as academic career at Baldwin-Wallace College located in Berea, Ohio. There he began becoming very serious about his studies and started developing skills that allow him to be the physician that he is today. Upon graduation from Baldwin-Wallace he went on to attend Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri. Here he became the president of the Gonstead Club. He was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to mentor under Dr. Jeff Lawlor and Dr. Richard Cranwell. Prior to his final semester of chiropractic school, Dr. Zach had a life-changing opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic to provide chiropractic care to underserved areas. During this 10-day mission trip, Dr. Zach made lifelong memories as well as friends, whom he continues to stay in touch with to this day. During his final semester of chiropractic school, Dr. Zach was fortunate enough to do his internship with Dr. Craig Ditzler. While performing his internship, Dr. Ditzler took Dr. Zach under his wing and provided a great foundation for his development in becoming a chiropractor here in San Diego. Also while in school, Dr. Zach attended numerous Gonstead Seminars with the Gonstead Methodology Institute (GMI). When Dr. Zach is outside of the office, he can be found playing sports, exploring San Diego, and relaxing with great company of friends and family.

Vertebrae subluxation causes the nerve passageway to become blocked, and the energy flowing through the nerve can be choked off. Any spinal imbalance will cause other areas of the spinal column to work harder in order to compensate for the area that is out of alignment. This interferes with your body’s innate healing ability and lowers your immune resistance. Chiropractors specialize in vertebral subluxation and are licensed health care professionals with the ability diagnose and correct it in the spinal column.

Our Mission at Gonstead Family Chiropractic is to eliminate the nerve interference to allow the body's nervous system to function optimally. By allowing the body's nervous system to function optimally it enables the body to heal itself Above,Down, Inside, and Out (ADIO).

Here at Gonstead Family Chiropractic we are committed to bettering our community through chiropractic as well as nutrition. We are devoted to giving back to the community through various charitable events. If you are interested learning more about how we contribute or are wanting to contribute yourself, please feel free to ask while you are in the office.
