The Gonstead Technique, developed by Dr. Clarence Gonstead, is a system used to analyze and care for the spine. It is a gentle, effective technique that is specific, accurate, and precise in evaluating and adjusting the spine.

Drop Table
This technique makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or "drop pieces" located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods; some of which are described below.

 

Deep tissue massage

Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is also not uncommon for receivers of Deep Tissue Massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two. Deep tissue work varies greatly. What one calls deep tissue another will call light. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling.

 

Neuromuscular Massage

By definition, NMT is the utilization of static pressure (compression) on specific myofascial points (trigger points) to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) using deep effleurage, petrissage, compression, and friction to balance the central nervous system.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and to treat pain. It is a great complement to chiropractic, massage, and rehab. Recently kinesio tape has gained in popularity due to olympic and professional athletes sporting the colorful tape on their knee, shoulder, etc.


Corrective Exercises

Corrective Exercise is a form of exercise that brings the body back into a perfect postural position. The body is designed to perform at its optimum level when it is in a position of good posture. Unfortunately over time we tend to pick up all of these bad habits of slouching, leaning or even sitting at our desks at work in these really strange positions.

 

Additional therapies
Our office employs many physical therapy modalities including ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, and intersegmental traction to complement our other techniques.
