Gonstead Technique

Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport follows a long history of Gonstead Clinics dating back to 1923. Since then, the Gonstead System of Chiropractic has maintained its superb standard of chiropractic across the world and is arguably the ultimate “Gold Standard” in hands on chiropractic spinal and extremity adjusting. and is the leader in Chiropractic techniques due to the lengthy training a Gonstead Doctor receives. A Gonstead Doctor not only completes a 4 year Doctorate degree in Chiropractic like every other Chiropractor, but also receives additional post-graduate training by attending several seminars every year to  maintain his or her standards.

Dr. C.S. Gonstead, known as the “Chiropractor’s chiropractor,” (1898-1978) developed the Gonstead technique. He used his background in mechanical engineering and knowledge of the nervous system to develop a specific, thorough, definite approach of analysis to every segment of the spine. Analysis includes instrumentation, digital palpation, motion palpation, visualization and x-ray.

Chiropractic care goes far beyond a simple system of “putting vertebrae back in place” at the Gonstead Clinic. It is rather, a scientific program of carefully analyzing the patient and their health problems on the basis of available information and then deciding on the proper corrective steps.

The Gonstead adjustment is given with care and specificity; only the problem areas of the spine are addressed. The specific adjustment(s) which is a high-velocity low force thrust helps return the spinal joints to their proper position and motion resulting in proper nerve functioning and improved health.
