Gonstead is a chiropractic technique developed by one of the most well-respected chiropractors Clarence Gonstead.
Dr. Clarence Gonstead
Dr. Clarence Gonstead dabbled in the mechanical world before becoming a chiropractor and it is because of this unique experience that he managed to develop some of the chiropractic tools that we now use today.
What makes Gonstead unique?
What makes the gonstead technique extremely unique and useful is the x-ray analysis. Many chiropractors who do not specialise in the Gonstead technique also use this method of analysis. This method of analysis allows for millimeter precision of what’s going on in the spine and pelvis.
Another uniqueness about the Gonstead technique is that this is the only technique that takes into account on how the discs can cause misalignments in the spine. This resulted in the technique being mainly designed for maximising disc affect while correcting misalignments at the same time.
