We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on years of experience and patient preference.
The primary adjusting protocol we use is Gonstead.
Named after its developer, Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. His "foundation principle" explains how a subluxation pain in one area of the spine can produce compensatory changes in another.
A Thorough Evaluation
After studying your health history, we conduct a complete examination. This generally includes full spine x-rays and precise analysis. Using a small heat-sensing insturment, subluxation patterns are revealed by slight differences in temperature. Finally, we use our fingertips to "palpate" or feel the location of the individual bones and how they function compared to other joints.
Full Spine Correction
With a complete picture of your spine it's time to make the needed corrections. The Gonstead Technique is acknowledged as one of the safest systems of evaluation and caring for the spine.
