There are many different chiropractic techniques, most named after the person who was instrumental in their development. The Gonstead System was developed by Dr Clarence Gonstead who did extensive research in his Mount Horeb clinic in Wisconsin. In Dr Gonstead’s 55 years of practice he preformed over 4,000,000 adjustments helping sick people get well, people travelled from all over to see him and he built a big motel to accommodate them. Dr Gonstead was asked by other chiropractors to teach them his specific form of chiropractic and so he developed the Gonstead System that we use today.
The Gonstead Chiropractor conducts a thorough analysis of your spine using a variety of tools to detect the presence of spinal dysfunction known as a vertebral subluxation complex.
