With so many Chiropractic treatments available, it can be hard to choose the correct one for you. Gonstead Chiropractic has been researched and proven as the most effective treatment, but is this true?
Gonstead Chiropractors have three primary goals:
First, to remove nerve interference so that symptoms are reduced or even eliminated in some cases;
Second, reduce subluxation by correcting any misalignments through corrective exercises specifically designed for each patient based on their needs (think of them more as lifestyle adjustments);
Third, restore normal motion, which leads to relieving chronic pain caused due to old injuries, etc., while also improving balance.
Gonstead chiropractor Dr. Richard Nassab states, “The Gonstead technique differs from other methods in that it emphasizes restoring normal motion rather than just pain relief.”
Chiropractic care may be able to assist with a variety of health conditions, including:
- Headaches and Migraines
- Coughs or Chest Congestion
- Aches and Pains in the Joints
- Lower Back Pain, Mid Back Pain or Upper Back Pain
- Digestive Disorders such as Heartburn or Constipation
- Skin Disorders such as Acne or Eczema
- Fatigue, Stress and Poor Sleep Quality
- Allergies and Hay Fever
- Autoimmune Conditions
- And many more…
Let's break down how the Gonstead Technique can treat the ailments listed above.
Headaches and Migraines
Gonstead doctors diagnose the cause of the headaches and migraines, which may be due to postural distortions, nerve interference, misaligned vertebrae, severe musculoskeletal strain, or any other chronic pain issue.
Chiropractors are trained in offering the Gonstead adjustment designed specifically for each patient based on their needs positively impacting more than only the problem areas.
Coughs and Chest Congestion
Chiropractic treatment can alleviate cough by removing nerve dysfunction that may be causing it. This makes coughing less frequent because this condition is often caused due to misaligned vertebrae in the neck region which restrict the proper function of nerves and muscles involved with swallowing, breathing and coughing.
Gonstead Chiropractor Dr. Richard Nassab says, “If you have a chronic cough or chest congestion issue, look for a doctor trained on the Gonstead approach.”
Aches and Pains in Joints
The Gonstead method has been found to reduce arthritis pain while improving joint movement, making it a great option for those who suffer from arthritis or other joint and disc integrity or spine related issues. Chiropractors are trained to treat these conditions with the Gonstead system by removing nerve pressure that causes the pain and discomfort associated with arthritis.
Lower Back Pain, Mid-Back Pain or Upper Back Pain
The Gonstead approach has been found to reduce back pain and improve function by correcting misalignments in the spine. A Spinal assessment followed by spinal adjustments is extremely effective for those suffering from lower back pain!
In addition, Gonstead practitioners can also help with other types of chronic pain, such as mid-back pain or upper back pain. Chiropractors are trained to treat these conditions with the Gonstead system by removing nerve interference and spinal misalignments that cause the pain and discomfort associated with a variety of chronic pains in the body.
Digestive Disorders such as Heartburn or Constipation
Gonstead Chiropractors Dr. Richard Nassab states, “Chiropractic care is important for digestive disorders because misalignment in the spine can affect nerves responsible for digestion.”
Gonstead doctors use their expertise and training in the Gonstead system to help patients suffering from heartburn, constipation, or any other digestive disorder by removing nerve pressure around these areas and spine, so they function correctly again. This often includes treating subluxations (or misaligned vertebrae within the spine) which are the leading cause of these disorders.
Skin Disorders such as Acne or Eczema
Chiropractors have had success treating skin issues with the Gonstead system care because subluxations can often inhibit nerves that control the function of various glands throughout the body, including those responsible for the immune system response and oil production in our skin. Thus causing many different skin conditions like acne and eczema by affecting how well they perform their job correctly.
A trained chiropractor is able to use their expertise working with this technique and thorough analysis of the spine to help treat problems related to these types of nerve interferences instead of using medication which could potentially cause negative side on other parts of your body not related to the skin.
Fatigue, Stress and Poor Sleep Quality
Many people are afflicted with some sleep problem or tiredness, as well as stress. To treat these sorts of issues, the Gonstead system is taught to chiropractors to remove nerve interference along the spine that may be responsible.
A Chiropractor can utilize this information to help their patients get rid of pain, which relieves the body’s stress reaction and allows it to function better again, so you feel better all day long and sleep better as a result.
Allergies and Hay Fever
The Gonstead system is the only chiropractic technique that is taught to help with allergies and hay fever because of how it affects nerve interference. It’s been found that subluxations in this area can cause immune system response to be inhibited, which causes allergic reactions or even conditions like asthma.
This includes treating patients who have chronic coughs not caused by another physical condition. They may also benefit from having their nervous system functioning better, so they feel healthy again. Chiropractors use training involving the Gonstead Chiropractic Technique and adjustments to the spine to help treat these types of problems with patients instead of using medications that are often not as effective.
Chiropractic care has successfully treated patients using Gonstead Chiropractic Technique for autoimmune conditions. Many autoimmune conditions are caused when the immune system is over-activated and begins to attack various parts of your body instead of protecting them, which can cause pain, inflammation, swelling, misalignment of the spine as well as other symptoms including fatigue.
This includes treating patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis as well as other autoimmune conditions that can be treated by the Gonstead Chiropractic Technique instead of using medications that are often not as effective either.
As an aside; the Gonstead system can treat children with many conditions.
Chiropractic adjustments are an important part of Boiron’s pediatric protocol in treating illnesses ranging from ear infections to stomach aches. The gentle adjustments help relieve these symptoms without side effects that are often associated with medication.
Most patients find Gonstead practitioners improve their overall health by making them feel refreshed both physically and mentally after every visit!
