About the Gonstead Method
Dr. Clarence Gonstead was a Mechanical Engineer prior to becoming a Chiropractor and changing the way that Health Professionals look at the human body. He pioneered the Gonstead method of chiropractic care which focuses on spending a lot more time in finding out exactly which joints are not working properly, then fixing them exactly. The Gonstead method sees joints as interdependent on each other, and intradependent with the rest of the body. What affects one part of the body has an effect on the rest of it. Gonstead doctors are able to deliver an effective and profound healing experience to their patients, often having success where other doctors or therapies have failed.
