Lead Instructor - St. Louis, MO

Dr. Joshua Petersmith discovered Chiropractic while he was a sophomore at Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville (SIUE). Little did he know it would change his life and lead him to become a Chiropractor. As a college soccer player at SIUE, he envisioned his Chiropractic career to involve helping athletes perform their best on the field; maybe even one day being the doctor on the sidelines for a professional team. However, soon after beginning Chiropractic school at Logan College of Chiropractic, now Logan University, he quickly realized that he could make a greater impact on his community by focusing on building a family practice rather than serving athletes exclusively. His desire to change his community drew him to the Upper Cervical Technique from the life-changing miracles that Upper Cervical Chiropractors see in their office on a daily basis. He instantly started seeking and obtaining as much knowledge as possible, thus taking seminars all across the country to become the best Upper Cervical Chiropractor he could. There was no turning back.


Dr. Petersmith graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2009, where he was a member of the Pi Kappa Chi Chiropractic Fraternity. Upon graduation, he directly went to practice as an associate in a nearby office. In 2011, he knew it was time to open his own office in order to help even more families and children through the power of the specific Upper Cervical adjustment. He has been in private practice at Summit Chiropractic – The Upper Cervical Center since 2011 and plans to open many other offices across the St. Louis area.


Dr. Petersmith is a regular speaker on Chiropractic at different conferences across the country. He has been a teacher and consultant for the Upper Cervical Revolution seminar series since 2014. The Midwest seminars are held at his office in Des Peres, MO where he teaches up to 20 students and doctors how to properly locate, analyze and deliver the Upper Cervical adjustment.
