The Gonstead Advantage

img6Our patients travel for miles from every direction for the world renowned Gonstead Technique. Gonstead represents the ultimate standard in “hands on” spinal adjusting and remains the leader in chiropractic techniques. The science behind this cutting-edge technique results in the most accurate, specific, and effective approach in evaluating and adjusting the spine. Because the spinal column is a dynamic structure affecting the entire body, the Gonstead Technique requires that the entire spine be checked for motion, soft tissue damage and neurological dysfunction by using five criteria. These valuable criteria and detailed analysis includes instrumentation, static palpation, motion palpation, visual – the articulations of the spine by hand only. By taking this comprehensive, proactive approach, we find that when correction is made to the spine, the entire body begins functioning better as a whole. It is common for our patients to feel more energy, sleep better, and notice improved digestion after receiving a series of specific Gonstead adjustments. The Gonstead System is timeless and gives rise to a specific, definite approach, to every segment of the spinal column. There is a clinical logic to every decision that is made for each and every patient. This ensures that the principles outlined by Dr. Gonstead will be duplicated, the results achieved, and patient referrals stimulated.


The Doctor’s Doctor

Gonstead adjustments are incredibly safe. Our patients range from young infants and children to those older in years, as well as pregnant women, celebrities, and professional athletes. Our team is comprised of highly experienced Gonstead chiropractors that have helped many people regain their health and vitality. Unlike other chiropractic methods that mainly focus on immediate pain relief, our office goes one step further to also correct the source of the problem. That’s why most patients under our care not only report relief from pain and discomfort, but as their spinal joints heal and posture begins to align, they notice other conditions clearing up as well. Here are just a few of the conditions we see on a regular basis in our health center.

  • Back and Neck Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Acid Reflux / GERD
  • Headache / Migraines
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Asthma
  • Scoliosis
  • Low Metabolism
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Postural Deformities
  • Allergies
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder Pain
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Disc Herniation

Correct biomechanics of the intervertebral disc is at the core of the Gonstead method of chiropractic. The curves in your spine act as levers, shock absorbers, and resistance to gravity; they also protect and reduce forces acting on the spinal cord and nerve tissues. The curves are dependent on the structure and function of your intervertebral discs. But, gravity, age, poor posture, improper physical activity, injury, and disease can all play a role in the misalignment of your spinal joints and, as a result, the entire structure of your body.

Your spine houses your nervous system – the most delicate and important organ system – responsible for your day to day bodily functions. From your immune, cardiovascular, and digestive system, to sexual function and mobility – your nerves are responsible for sending vital information and energy from the brain to your organs through your spine. Just as a kink in a garden hose can dramatically reduce the flow of water coming from the tap – a spine out of alignment dramatically reduces vital information going from your brain to vital organs. Thus, your organs are much more susceptible to malfunction and disease. It’s not just coincidence that people most with poor posture tend to lack energy and suffer from fatigue, experience random aches and pains, as well as suffer from headaches, allergies, ear infection, sleeping disorders, gastrointestinal issues, asthma, high blood pressure, etc.
