There are many different chiropractic techniques to choose from. How do I know if the Gonstead method is right for me?
The examination and treatment begin with a discussion of the patient’s case history; your practitioner wants to know the problems or discomforts you’re experiencing, and if you’ve had auto accidents, falls or other traumas to your body in the past. An x-ray is done to allow your chiropractor to view the structure and condition of your spine, and look for signs of disease, fracture and what position the vertebrae are in so that adjustments can be specific and effective once the problem is detected. Done by hand, Gonstead adjustments are safe and gentle, and never forced; they are precise, biomechanically accurate and well-researched.
With eight years of college and chiropractic education, along with hundreds of hours of classroom and practical training, Gonstead chiropractors are well educated in the teachings and applications of this technique and case-management system, which can prove effective in helping a wide range of health problems like ear infections, headaches, numbness and high blood pressure.
