Gonstead

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. During the evaluation phase, we will perform a full spine x-ray and precise analysis. In addition, we will use a small heat-sensing instrument in order to assess the differences in temperature, which could be slight or even extreme. The final step during the analysis is palpation where we feel the location of individual bones and how they may differ from their normal position. To adjust your lower spine and pelvis, we’ll have you lie on your side. 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. Gonstead Technique is consistently acknowledged as one of the safest systems of evaluating your spinal well-being.
