What makes our chiropractic different?
The Gonstead Method is one of the most specific and accurate types of chiropractic adjustments. Your doctor of chiropractic will use the most bio-mechanically correct position for a precise and effective adjustment. Your doctor will also use an x-ray of your spine to determine the exact areas that suffer from subluxations and use the adjustments to correct any nerve interference. Seeing is knowing and not seeing is guessing. Our method takes away all the guess work. This allows us to treat herniated disc, sciatic, numbness, tingling and shooting pains more precisely and accurately vs other types of chiropractic care.

We provide chiropractic care through the Gonstead Method. We are one of the only chiropractors in the state that offer this highly specialized version of chiropractic care. Doctors trained in the Gonstead Method go through rigorous additional training above and beyond what most chiropractic schools offer. Gonstead methods are focused on more comprehensive assessments of the spine using five main criteria to detect issues:
Our chiropractors are experts at detecting subtle changes in posture and movement that indicate problem areas
Gonstead chiropractors use the Nervoscope, which detects uneven heat distribution along the spine to detect inflammation and nerve pressure changes
Our Gonstead chiropractors feel the spine in static positions, like a sitting position, to check for muscle tightness and swelling
The Gonstead Method focuses on feeling the spine during movement and bending to determine how well the spinal segments are able to move at various angles
We take x-rays to get a full understanding of the overall health of your spine. They are referenced during each adjustment to give you the most effective visit possible.
We like to hear from you as soon as possible to correctly and accurately get a history of your condition. If needed full spine x-rays will be taken to get a blue print of your spine to see the areas that have been damaged.
Exam, Xrays, Adjustment
The regular visit involves the gonstead analysis to be able to pinpoint exactly where your problem is, and to use the most precise, non-twisting specific, and comfortable adjustment that chiropractic has to offer.
