The Gonstead Chiropractor provides all types of clients, from children to elite athletes, the most modern and advanced spinal assessment utilizing five systematic criteria proven to efficiently detect presence of vertebral subluxation complex

Our patient-centered, whole-person approach for treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system provides an optimal solution for effectively relieving, but not limited to back, neck, joint, and head pains. Our goal is to help you recover and prevent so that you can get back to doing the things you love without pain.


The most effective way to address the source of your pain and to help your body recover is to utilize our five golden criteria, which include Visualization, Instrumentation, Palpation, and X-Ray. The synergy and combination of these measurements manifest tell-tall correlations, which are used as determining factors of choosing effective and efficient treatment plans, unique for every patient. The greater the specificity, the greater the change we will notice in our patient’s health, ultimately providing our clients with the highest quality care.

Visualization considers all the information perceivable from the patient’s appearance. In the Gonstead System, Visualization starts from the moment a patient walks in the door, by the chiropractor simply looking at them very carefully. It is a way to cross-reference visual factors of the patient with X-Ray and Palpation findings.
Readings obtained through instrumentation will show whether subluxations are present, if they are effectively being corrected, and if permanent correction has been attained. A dual probe instrument, known as the Nervoscope, is skillfully used to get a bilateral temperature comparison of the spine to locate areas of inflammation.
Palpation is a complex diagnosing method which requires the right combination of knowledge, skills, and attitude to precisely determine the root causes of pain. At Gonstead Chiropractic, we utilize both Static and Motion Palpation to thoroughly examine the tone, texture, temperature, as well as many other factors of the patient, that help provide insight to a whole-body analysis.
Full spine X-Rays are essential to Gonstead Chiropractic by providing an accurate vertebral count, a full spinal contour representation for posture analysis with axial weight bearing, and an ability to show other issues distant from the proximity. They allow us to regard the patient totally in analysis and corrective procedures.
After the initial assessment of your spine using the five criteria, we provide adjustments that address the problem areas:
The Gonstead system deals with only the affected discs after proper diagnosing, and no other areas within the proximity, to optimally help nerves function. By addressing only specific problematic areas, our adjustments deal with only one vertebra at a time instead of several regions. Doing so increases the ability of our chiropractors to correctly adjust your spine and effectively reduce pain in even the severest cases of pain-inducing situations including disc herniation, disc bulges, and much more through our programs which are based on routine chiropractic adjustments and maintenance of corrections.
The Result
Chiropractic treatment helps reduce subluxation across all ages of patients, with the main goals of increasing flexible range of motion, reducing nerve irritability, and improving the physical function of our patients. We give every one of our patients the best tools to help strengthen and correct their own unique problems, whether it be pain, incorrect posture, and/or congenital physical defects. Tools, such as blueprint exercises, can be performed in the comfort of our patient’s own home, and routine adjustments can help with the maintenance of acquired benefits achieved through our Chiropractic treatments.
In the Gonstead’s systematic approach to understanding problems of a patient, there is never a textbook rule to help Chiropractors determine the problematic areas in need of treatment and adjustment. We apply every bit of information across multiple nodes of analysis and correlate our unique findings to specifically determined the precise cause of our patient’s problems. Upon discover Subluxations, our Chiropractors utilize proper Gonstead techniques, focusing on the dynamics of intervertebral disc issues as the underlying cause of subluxations and other neurological dysfunction.
The discovery of subluxations catalyzing at the disc is important for the complete comprehension of all the degeneration stages. When the optimal status of Parallel Disc is compromised by misalignment of the vertebrae, the pivot point of the nucleus pulposus is compressed to the point of causing pressure and vital damage against the surrounding annular fibers. Hence, this causes an inflammatory response which causes the disc to expand leading to neurological dysfunction. The Gonstead system allows for the visualization of this entire process which efficiently guides the adjustment and treatment for correction.
