What is Chiropractic?
A Chiropractor offers a thorough assessment and examination of the spine and nervous system for the diagnosis of joint misalignment (known in the profession as a subluxation). A subluxation can cause nerve irritation and biomechanical problems such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, jaw pain, joint pain, as well as many more.
However, the purpose of chiropractic care isn’t just about treating these symptoms. We also want to help you move better and more often, eat well and live a healthy lifestyle. It is about helping your body function at its greatest so you can achieve optimal health!
A Gonstead Chiropractor is skilled in a precise method of spinal analysis and treatment to achieve the best outcomes for you and your family. Gonstead Chiropractic is named after its developer, Dr Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. Dr Gonstead’s 55 years of continuous practice and experience resulted in the most complete method of biomechanical analysis available for use by Chiropractors today. The Gonstead ‘foundation principle’ explains how a subluxation pattern in one area of the spine can produce compensatory changes in another. The Gonstead chiropractor goes beyond what many Chiropractors consider a spinal assessment by conducting a thorough analysis of your spine using five criteria to detect the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex, which are: Visualization. Instrumentation. Static Palpation. Motion Palpation. X-Ray Analysis. Once detected, the Gonstead chiropractor begins to specifically correct the subluxation, thereby restoring proper nerve function and ultimately, health. This is what sets Gonstead chiropractic apart from many other chiropractic approaches. There is no substitute if you want the best and most time-tested Chiropractic care available.
