Chiropractic: Gonstead Technique

Discover the Gold Standard in Chiropractic Care

At Cornerstone Chiropractic, we recognize the uniqueness of every individual. That’s why we are dedicated to providing tailored adjustments to meet your specific needs. With our expertise in the Gonstead technique, widely regarded as the pinnacle of chiropractic care, we offer evidence-based solutions to address your concerns effectively.

What is the Gonstead Technique?

The Gonstead Technique, named after its innovator Dr. Clarence Gonstead, originates from his engineering background. Dr. Gonstead’s “foundation principle” emphasizes how a subluxation pattern in one area of the spine can lead to compensatory changes elsewhere. We approach your care holistically, considering your entire being, not just your spine, to identify the most beneficial adjustment areas for optimal results.

What to Expect

Upon your visit, we begin by thoroughly examining your health history, followed by a comprehensive assessment. This typically involves full spine X-rays and precise analysis. Using advanced technology, such as a heat-sensing instrument, we detect subluxation patterns through subtle temperature variations. Additionally, our skilled practitioners utilize palpation techniques to assess individual bone positions accurately.

Depending on your specific needs, adjustments may vary. For lower spine and pelvic adjustments, you’ll be positioned on your side. Middle back corrections are performed with you in a comfortable kneeling position. We can also address spinal integrity while you’re seated, without any twisting or rotation of the neck. You may experience a gentle “popping” sound during adjustments, known as cavitation, indicating the release of pressure. However, not all adjustments produce this sound, yet they still contribute to improved health and well-being.
