The Gonstead System
Dr. C. S. Gonstead graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1923. Soon after, he started developing the most thorough, comprehensive, and specific form of chiropractic for the analysis and correction of the vertebral subluxation complex.
The Gonstead System of Chiropractic has proven through the years to set New Standards in chiropractic… standards to which other chiropractic approaches often measure themselves.
Dr. C. S. Gonstead (1898-1978) the “Miracle Man” of Chiropractic. His technique became the Hall Mark for the entire profession. With a background in mechanical engineering, he saw the human spine as an intricate engineering wonder and he studied it every chance he had. His work with thousands of spinal cases, his constant clinical studies of the spine, and his own innate knowledge of how the spine works, explains his ingenuity in finding, identifying and correcting subluxations no one else could.
The Gonstead system gives rise to a specific, definite approach, to every segment of the spinal column. The detailed analysis includes instrumentation, digital palpation, motion palpation, visualization, x-ray followed by adjusting the articulations of the spine by hand only!
We are trained exclusively in the Gonstead system. There is a clinical logic to every decision that is made for each and every patient.
