The Gonstead Chiropractic Stockton System
Clarence S.Gonstead, founder of the world-famous Gonstead Clinic of Chiropractic in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, and his associates conducted a considerable clinical study to develop Gonstead treatments. Doctor Gonstead developed the most comprehensive method of biomechanical analysis accessible for use by today's chiropractors after fifty-five years of continuous practice and over four million chiropractic adjustments.
The Gonstead Chiropractor does a detailed investigation of your spine utilizing five criteria to detect the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex, which goes beyond what many chiropractors consider a spinal assessment.
Visualization. This is a method of comparing and contrasting all of the other discoveries. Your chiropractor is trained to see minor changes in your posture and mobility that may suggest a problem.
Instrumentation. The Nervoscope is the Gonstead System's preferred instrument. The Nervoscope detects heat distributions that are unequal along the spine, which may indicate inflammation or nerve pressure. This instrument is directed along the length of your spine, and it feels like two fingers gliding down either side.
Static Palpation. Simply put, this is the process of feeling (or palpating) your spine when it is in a fixed (or static) posture. Swelling (or edema), pain, and any odd texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues of your back will be felt by your chiropractor.
Motion Palpation. This technique involves moving and bending the spine at various angles while feeling it. This allows the chiropractor to assess how easy or difficult it is for each portion of your spine and neck adjustment to move in various directions.
X-Ray Analysis. X-ray images allow your doctor to see your full spine structure. This is useful for assessing posture, joint and disc integrity, and spinal misalignments and ruling out any recent fractures that may be contributing to the patient's condition. To fully substantiate the examination findings of your neck adjustment, full-spine radiographs are taken in the standing, weight-bearing posture.
