What Do Gonstead Chiropractors Actually Do?

Have you ever wondered what Gonstead Chiropractors do and what we’re looking for? Well, wonder no more. At the heart of our practice is the search for subluxations, which are vertebrae that have shifted out of position and are causing pressure on nerves in the spine. As Gonstead Chiropractors, we aim to restore proper functioning by removing this pressure, allowing the body’s natural healing mechanisms to work uninterrupted. In this article, we’ll explore the mechanics of a subluxation and how our adjustments work to correct it.

When it comes to our health, we often overlook the importance of our spine and its impact on our entire body. The truth is, a subluxation can cause a ripple effect on our body’s functions, resulting in various health concerns. It occurs when a vertebra shifts out of its normal position, causing pressure on the spinal nerve. This can interfere with the transmission of nerve impulses, leading to pain, discomfort, and decreased function in the body. For example, if there is a subluxation in the cervical (neck) region, it may result in headaches, migraines, or even facial pain. Similarly, subluxations in the lumbar (lower back) region may cause complications with digestion, bowel movements, menstrual cycles, and more.

As Gonstead Chiropractors, we take a holistic approach to identify the root cause of any health concerns our patients may have. We start by conducting detailed consultations to understand any past or current conditions. This allows us to gain insight into possible areas that may require attention. Then, we perform a series of checks, including X-rays, thermal scans, and postural analysis to pin-point the location of the subluxation and its severity.

Once the subluxation is identified, we use specific Gonstead adjustments to correct it. The Gonstead approach is unique, as it focuses on the detection of subluxations and their correction with a gentle and highly specific adjustment. These adjustments are given through the chiropractor’s hands, and the technique is specifically tailored to each patient’s needs. The correction alleviates the pressure on the spinal nerve, leading to improved body function.

Our spine is essential for our overall health and wellness. It is crucial to pay attention to its health and function. As Gonstead Chiropractors, we focus on restoring proper body function by removing nerve pressure caused by subluxations. Secondary conditions are simply symptoms of the underlying misalignment, and correcting the subluxation should be the primary goal. We use a combination of careful listening, precise testing, and tailored adjustments to get your body functioning optimally once again. If you’re experiencing any issues that may be related to subluxations, or you want to optimize your health, we encourage you to schedule an appointment and see how we can help.
