Our Doctors

Dr. Melinda Donnelly D.C.
Dr. Melinda Donnelly D.C.

Doctor Melinda Donnelly, a native of Western PA, graduated from Hempfield High School in 1987. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Millersville University in 1991. After several years of working in the social service field, Dr. Donnelly decided to return to school and was accepted into Life University College of Chiropractic. There she received her Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in December of 2000 and has been practicing ever since in her hometown of Greensburg, Pennsylvania.

Doctor Donnelly’s husband, Darin, received a promotion in May of 2013 which landed them in the low country of Savannah. Finding The Joint was a welcome adventure for Dr. Donnelly due to the wellness model it represents, allowing her to get back to the basics of chiropractic care-no hassle, no fuss, straight chiropractic that promotes maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

  • The Right Foods: More Weight, More Muscle

    May 18, 2016
    We all dream of being bigger and more muscular. Or maybe the ideal you is just more muscular but without the extra weight. Either way, the simple logic is that if you want to gain weight and get bigger you need to eat more.  Simple Rules Rule No. 1: You must eat more calories than your body ...

  • The DNA of Happiness

    May 3, 2016
    I’m convinced that feeling good has been historically underestimated. I mean really, how interesting is it if the super hero of your favorite film is happy? What kind of conflict does that provide? The relative success of Superman vs. Batman shows that we’d rather see a Superman that is all bent out of shape than one ...
  • Just What the World Needs: A Better Push-Up

    April 25, 2016
    Remember, it’s not what you do but how you do it. The same thing goes for push-ups. Push-ups are pretty straight forward right? Lie down on your stomach, legs extended, arms bent at the elbows and push away. But a few modifications — or at the very least strict attention to form — will result ...

    Free is always good and what’s better than free fitness apps to keep you focused in the gym or during the day? I’m no computer whiz but I’m smart enough to know that fitness apps can help you track your workouts, how your sleep and even how and what you are eating every day. Which apps ...
  • The New Normal: Going Gluten Free

    April 11, 2016
    A friend of mine, who unfortunately suffers from celiac disease, is on a gluten-free diet. Any time she is over, we eat a lot of salad. I didn’t want to ask because this person is always being inundated with questions about the disease, but after some research I discovered that gluten can really tear up the intestines ...

    April 4, 2016
    A heart attack is one of those life-altering events that we always seem to say “will never happen to me.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Heart attacks occur much more frequently among males than among females. The good news is that heart attacks are preventable. There are a lot of common sense steps ...

  • Foods that Trigger Migraine Headaches

    March 14, 2016
    Migraine headaches can be set off by all kinds of things: Deadlines at work, getting your taxes done and, unfortunately even eating. Current research shows that not only what you eat might trigger a migraine headache, but what’s inside the things you eat as well. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we’re here today. You ...

My back has been hurting for about 2 years since joining the military. Since seeing Dr. Donnelly, the pain has gone away. I also feel stronger and am able to better perform my job. I would recommend chiropractic care to anyone who has a physically strenuous job. Chiropractic care, in my experience, allows people to feel better and stay more active. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Donnelly to my fellow soldiers and friends.

At the age of 30, I finally came to the realization that I was falling apart. My neck, back, hips, even my wrists (mainly from previous injures) were giving me pain. ThenI met Dr. Donnelly at The Joint in Savannah. Just like Humpty Dumpty, she has put me back together. I can finally jump out of bed each morning, instead of crawling out in paid due to stiffness. I look forward to seeing Dr. Donnelly and her team each and every week. I am completely grateful I have found this office. I have and will continue to recommend their practice to anyone I meet. They are not her for the quick fix, but the everyday wellbeing of your everyday like. Thanks again. You are my hero!

My mid-back had gotten so painful that even every day activities hurt. I finally had it with the pain when I went out to dinner and was in pain sitting at the table. I sought out chiropractor care through my insurance company, but the chiropractor I went to did NOTHING to help and seemed to only want my money. I was referred to The Joint and within two weeks my back felt better than it had in months. I have been coming to The Joint for a month and a half and I feel that my back has much improved! I would recommend The Joint because not only is it affordable, but they make a difference!

I started coming to The Joint because it hurt to turn my head. It was painful when I had to look behind me when I was pulling out of a parking space or changing lanes. I also had pain when I raised my arms above my head. Dr. Sanders is the best chiropractor I have ever been to. I am now able to turn my head to the left and to the right without pain, and my range of motion has increased. Regular visits keep me pain free and I believe they also slow down the degeneration of my joints.

I started using The Joint on the recommendations of a friend after I had a seriously injured my back. I've had nothing but good experiences with the receptionists to the actual chiropractors, and I always feel better after being adjusted. I would recommend the Joint to anyone that needs stress relieving, or people like me with physically demanding jobs. It's great to feel so good, so quickly.

I came to The Joint as a walk-in. I left The Joint as a member. The main reason for my visit was to have an adjustment because it was a lot of years since I had one. I love doing yoga and riding my bike but I noticed my posture was not as strong as it once was. I now can bend much easier without the popping and discomfort. I sleep much better at night too. I could never sleep a whole night and now I do! Dr. Donnelly is very polite and gentle. The staff has always been helpful too! Yoga is more enjoyable and my posture is improving.

I feel so much better after a treatment. I am able to get around better, not stiff or inflexible. I feel a weekly treatment keeps me flexible, active and energized.

I have had back issues for years and have never been able to afford the ongoing chiropractic care I needed. Other chiropractors, well, wasted a lot of my time with unnecessary visits (3-4 times a week) and don't get me started on those annoying TENS units! Well, I found The Joint and Dr. Donnelly and it has changed my life and how I view chiropractic care!. I have recommended several friends, three of which I know continue to come regularly. I love it. My back loves it. You'll love it.

I am 21 years old and I've had many back problems. I came here just to try it out and my back has never been better. The hours are convenient for my crazy schedule. The doctors are so friendly. It's really worth the money to make your body feel so much better.

I needed chiropractic care due to chronic hip pain during pregnancy. The visits helped relieve pain and keep me moving. After delivery chiropractic care has helped with upper back pain and neck pain from breastfeeding.
