You owe it to yourself, your family and your friends to read and understand what follows and explore this website. Until now, you may have thought that all chiropractors “do the same thing” and “adjust the same way”. The fact is, it just isn’t so! But you need to know why!
Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.
There are tremendous benefits in seeking a Gonstead doctor when choosing a chiropractor in your area. It is also comforting to know that should you take a vacation or move to a new area, you can continue your quality care without interruption or change in style and technique. There is a worldwide referral network of qualified Gonstead chiropractors using the same methods of analysis, the same specific adjusting procedures, and who share the same goal . . . to correct the subluxations in your spine for the purpose of creating a healthier you!
Discover the Gonstead Chiropractic Advantage – An Introduction to the Gonstead System
What makes us so special?
Chiropractic has come a long way since David D.Palmer gave his first adjustment in 1889 in Davenport, Iowa. Today, there are many methods used by chiropractors to correct spinal misalignments, joint dysfunctions and subluxation complexes. Many techniques are identified by the name of the person who was most instrumental in their development. Interestingly enough, one of the most advanced and scientific methods is a technique called:
The Gonstead System
Gonstead procedures are the result of extensive clinical research by Clarence S.Gonstead, founder of the world famous Gonstead Clinic of Chiropractic in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin and his associates. Doctor Gonstead’s fifty-five years of continuous practice and over four million chiropractic adjustments resulted in the most complete method of biomechanical analysis available for use by today’s doctors of chiropractic. So why don’t all chiropractors use this technique? Because the analysis takes more time and mastering the art of delivering a specific adjustment takes a LOT of practice and dedication.
X-Ray films enable your doctor to visualize the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in evaluating posture, joint and disc integrity, vertebral misalignments and ruling out any pathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s condition. These full-spine radiographs are taken in the standing, weight-bearing position to fully substantiate the examination findings.
Named for its developer, we conduct a thorough evaluation using full spine X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for accurate adjustments…
Pre And Poca X-Ray Findings
Named after its developer, Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. His “foundation principle” explains how a vertebral subluxation pattern in one area of the spine can produce compensatory changes in another.
A Thorough Evaluation
The two probes detect minute differences in temperature up and down your spine.
After studying your health history, we conduct a complete examination. This generally includes full spine X-rays and precise analysis. Using a small heat-sensing instrument, vertebral subluxation patterns are revealed by slight differences in temperature. Finally, we use our fingertips to “palpate” or feel the location of individual bones and how they may differ from their normal position.
Full Spine Correction
With a complete picture of your spine it’s time to make the needed corrections.
To adjust your lower spine and pelvis, we’ll have you lie on your side. Vertebral subluxations in the middle back are corrected as you assume a comfortable kneeling position. When you are seated, we can restore the integrity of your spine without twisting or rotating your neck.
Sometimes you’ll hear a slight “popping” sound that we call cavitation. Sometimes you won’t. Either way, better health is on the way!
Safe and Effective
The Gonstead Technique is acknowledged as one of the safest systems of evaluating and caring for the spine.
