Gonstead Technique: Safe, effective, liberating pain treatment from Proficient Chiropractic in St. Louis
Your chiropractor is an expert in treating the whole person to stop pain and disability without drugs or surgery. At Proficient Chiropractic, serving St Louis from our offices in Overland, MO, one of the methods we use to accelerate healing is the Gonstead Technique. Here are the three things your chiropractor at Proficient Chiropractic wants you to know about this healing method.
The Gonstead Technique starts with your chiropractor getting to know the whole you.
A Gonstead Adjustment begins with your chiropractor carefully studying your health concerns. Nearly always symptoms can be matched to what chiropractors call a subluxation. One way of understanding a subluxation is as a pinched or compressed nerve, but the importance of a subluxation is that it blocks the transmission of information to and from your brain to the rest of your body through your central nervous system. When a subluxation is treated, your brain does the rest, sending out the signals that enable normal movement, healthy production of hormones, and pain-free living. Compounding the subluxations may be misalignment of your spine and pelvis as well as disc problems that most of us encounter as we mature.
After careful diagnosis, your session with the Gonstead Technique is quick and painless. You will be asked to lie on your side. Then, your chiropractor physically manipulates the vertebra or vertebrae that are causing the problem back into alignment. Thanks to the time your chiropractor spends making a careful diagnosis, Gonstead Technique is very accurate and very safe. Because the Gonstead Technique is a holistic treatment, you may come away from your series of treatments with some unexpected improvements in your health and life.
The Gonstead Technique treats the whole you.
The Gonstead Technique doesn’t just treat the health issues that motivated you to come in and see your chiropractor. With the Gonstead Technique, your chiropractor will identify every subluxation that could be interfering with your life and daily activities. It’s not unusual for the chiropractor to identify injuries you didn’t even remember you had that have been causing pain and stiffness or interfering with your ability to enjoy your life so long you got used to them. The Gonstead Technique enables your chiropractor to more for you than you expect at your first visit.
