The Gonstead Method of Chiropractic
Dr. Clarence Gonstead was a chiropractor who practiced in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin for over 50 years until his death in 1978. Before becoming a chiropractor he was an engineer, and he applied the principles of engineering to the spine.
Dr. Gonstead developed a revolutionary system of chiropractic care which focuses on a very thorough analysis of each patient. At our office, we believe that it is crucial to provide the most specific, accurate, and effective care possible. We use full-spine x-rays (taken at our office) so that we can see exactly what each unique spine looks like so that we can tailor care to meet your particular needs. We also use a device called a nervoscope that detects irritated and inflamed nerves in the spine caused by subluxation. Our focus and goal is to find the underlying cause of your problem so that we can correct it, not just to relieve symptoms. From there, we use gentle, hands-on adjustments to correct the problem. We have various pieces of equipment for adjusting that allow us to accommodate any chiropractic patient, from tiny newborn babies, to football linebackers, to seniors, and everyone in between!
Chiropractic care is great for more than just relieving back pain! The Gonstead method is very specific; the goal is to address the cause of the problem.
