With over four million chiropractic adjustment and fifty-five years of continuous practice resulted in the most complete method of biomechanical analysis available for today’s doctors of chiropractic to use. Why isn’t this technique used by all chiropractors? This is because the analysis takes more time and mastering the art delivering a specific adjustment requires a lot of practice and dedication.

The Gonstead chiropractors go beyond what other chiropractors consider a spinal assessment. Gonstead chiropractors conduct a thorough analysis of the spine using five criteria to detect the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex.
Visualization: This is a way to cross reference all the other findings. When it comes to looking for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems, Your chiropractor is an expert.
X-Ray analysis: X-ray films helps in enabling your doctor to visualize the entire structure of your spine. X-ray films are helpful in evaluating vertebral misalignments, joint and disc integrity, posture, and ruling out any pathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s condition.
Motion palpation: Motion Palpation is a process that involves feeling the spine while bending and moving it at various angles. Motion Palpation enables the chiropractor to determine how easy or difficult each segment in your spine moves in different directions.
Static palpation: Static Palpation is the process of feeling your spine in a stationary position. The chiropractor will feel for the presence of tenderness, swelling, and any other abnormality in texture or tightness in muscles and other tissues of your back.
Instrumentation: In the Gonstead System the instrument of choice is Nervoscope. The Nervoscope helps in detecting uneven distributions of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure. The Nervoscope is guided down the length of your back and feels like two fingers gliding down each side of your spine.
