The ultimate goal is to return the spine to its normal structural alignment, which in turn will also result in intervertebral disc healing, reduced muscular tension, improved balance of nerve flow, inhibition of early degenerative joint disease and a noticeable improvement in optimal nervous system function and overall performance.
It all starts with a scientific, five-step examination of your posture, spinal alignment, joint motion and neurological function as compared to healthy normal values. The Gonstead Technique combines biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to carefully study and identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health originating from your spine misalignments and resulting posture abnormalities. In our offices, you will find the Insight Millennium Subluxation System™ to perform a full spine postural and neurological assessment. This technology allows us to objectively measure functional improvements in the nervous system. We use a top-of-the-line, high speed, low dose x-ray system. Pre and post spinal image comparisons are used to assess biomechanical improvements and determine when maximum structural recovery has been reached.
Your initial postural spinal images will let us confirm and show you if there are deficiencies in your spinal structure. By correcting the structure of the spine with time and repetition, patients will sustain their results and likely rid themselves of other symptoms, some of which they may have suffered for years. Lasting change comes with time. Our doctors recognize that as your spine is adjusted and ultimately corrected, proper changes in posture will be evident on the x-ray. Before and after spinal imaging is an important element of confirming the success or furthering of our focused efforts to realign the spine toward a healthy normal posture. Naturally, our Gonstead doctors use only the specific adjustment to achieve results.If indicated, we will recommend an appropriate corrective program comprised of a carefully planned series of Gonstead adjustments. Since everyone’s spine is unique, treatment outcomes vary with each individual case.
