Dr. Clarence Gonstead was a Mechanical Engineer prior to becoming a Chiropractor and changing the way that Health Professionals look at the human body.
As Gonstead practitioners, we emphasize finding the cause of the condition instead of looking only at the symptom itself.
This objective is achieved by conducting a thorough examination that includes motion, palpation, instrumentation and X-rays. Only after a careful study of the examination results does the Gonstead practitioner determine if the patient is a chiropractic case or if a referral is indicated.
A system of protocols is in place to determine when and where to adjust. These specific adjustments are performed to reduce or eliminate nerve interference, thereby allowing the body to recover naturally, without drugs or surgery.
