What Type of Treatment we use:
The Gonstead technique is a system used to analyze and care for the spine. It is gentle, effective technique that is specific, accurate and precise in evaluating and adjusting the spine. The Gonstead system uses several different methods of analyzing the spine, such as: Visualization – Visualization is a way to cross reference all the other findings. Your chiropractor is an expert in looking for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems.
The instrument of choice in the Gonstead System is the Nervoscope. The Nervoscope detects uneven distributions of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure. This instrument is guided down the length of your back and feels like two fingers gliding down each side of your spine.
Static Palpation – This is simply the process of feeling (or palpating) your spine in a stationary (or static) position. Your chiropractor will feel for the presence of swelling (or edema), tenderness and any abnormal texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues of your back.
Motion Palpation – This process involves feeling the spine while moving and bending it at various angles. This enables the chiropractor to determine how easily or difficult each segment in your spine moves in different directions.
X-Ray Analysis – 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.
After the evaluation using these 4 methods of analysis there is no guess work. The Gonstead system is considered the Gold standard for chiropractic techniques because of its record of safety and effectiveness in correcting misalignment of the spine.
Our patients want to get relief or out of pain as quickly as possible and with this specific technique we are able to target which bone is out of place along with were the nerve pressure is and area of inflammation with a gentle adjustment (treatment) release it and get on with your life.
