Before and After postural spinal imaging results are an important component of realizing the success or furthering of our focused efforts on the intervertebral discs to realign the structure of the spine towards optimal position.
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. Pre and post spinal image comparisons are used to assess biomechanical improvements and determine when maximum structural recovery has been reached.
Your initial x-rays will let us show you if there are deficiencies in your spinal curvature and the extent of the problem. We will recommend an appropriate corrective program if needed. Our doctors recognize that as your spine is corrected, proper changes of spinal position must be evident. A comparative x-ray study allows the doctor and patient to “see” objectively when optimal function has been realized. 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. Naturally, our Gonstead doctors only use the specific adjustment to achieve these changes.
