Gonstead Chiropractic is a unique style in the healing arts which directly affects the nervous system to allow the body to heal itself. Our focus as chiropractors is not only to eliminate conditions and symptoms, but to actually get and keep families well through the triad of health.
The most unique aspect of chiropractic is the notion/intent of finding and correcting the cause of the patient’s concern, i.e. pain, spasm, dysfunction, suffering – whatever you want to call it! Given that the nervous system controls and regulates every function in the body, it stands to reason that finding and correcting any dysfunction will result in a positive reaction.
Dr. Lou uses the Gonstead Method of chiropractic. Named after its developer, Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. His “foundation principle” explains how a subluxation of the spine in one area can produce problems in another.
A Comprehensive Chiropractic Evaluation
After studying your health history, we conduct a comprehensive examination. This generally includes full standing spine X-rays and precise analysis. Using a small heat-sensing instrument to conduct a thermographic exam helps to reveal areas of dysfunction. Finally, we use our fingertips to “palpate” or feel the location of individual bones and how they may differ from their normal position and movement.
Safe and Effective
The Gonstead Method is acknowledged as one of the safest systems of evaluating and caring for the spine.
