Gonstead Chiropractic Care

The Gonstead System is known to the chiropractic profession as a gold standard and one of the safest systems of evaluating and caring for the spine.

What you need to know

Named after its developer, Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. His foundation principle explains how a subluxation pattern in one area of the spine can produce compensatory changes in another.

Because Gonstead chiropractors work with the nerve connections from the brain to all the parts of the body through the spine, they have great success working with:

• Headaches and migraines
• Menstrual issues
• Colic
• Ear infections
• Weakened immune system
• Digestive imbalances
• Sciatica and neuropathy
• Frozen or painful shoulder
• Tendonitis, bursitis
• Carpal tunnel
• IT band syndrome
• Knee problems
• Shin splints
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Low back pain
• Disc problems

We love to help those who still want a conservative solution like chiropractic to work for them but have not had success elsewhere. Our specialty allows us to help people that haven’t been helped by other medical systems and want a 2nd (or 3rd) opinion and a natural solution to improving their health.

We focus on the philosophy, art, and science of chiropractic as designed by its originators starting in 1895. Although the profession allows lots of additional therapies to be utilized in chiropractic clinics, we prefer to focus on the core of the spinal issue and master the art of fixing it with hands on adjusting of the spinal discs and delicate nerve tissues which control all functions of the body.

A thorough evaluation
After discussing your health history, we conduct a chiropractic examination. This generally includes full spine x-rays, spinal biomechanical measurements, and analysis. Using a heat-sensing instrument, called a Nervoscope, spinal subluxations are observed by slight differences in temperature.

Finally, our fingertips are used to feel the location of individual bones and how they may differ from their normal motion compared to the one above and below.

Full spine correction
With a complete picture of your spine, it’s time to make the needed corrections.

To adjust the subluxations in your middle and lower spine and pelvis, we will often have you lie on your side or use a kneeling table or facedown on our gentle hi-lo table.

While seated, the integrity of your spine is restored without twisting or rotating your neck. Sometimes you will hear a slight sound as the spinal disc gently shifts into a better position.

Either way, restoration of health is soon to follow!
