Gonstead Chiropractic Care and Chronic Pain
Gonstead chiropractic care is a specific type that focuses on precise adjustments to the spine in order to restore its alignment and function, which can help relieve pain and improve your overall health.
The Gonstead technique is based on the belief that subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, can interfere with the nervous system and cause pain and other health problems. By adjusting the spine, Gonstead chiropractors aim to improve nerve function and relieve pain.
Gonstead chiropractic care has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of conditions, including chronic pain. A 2017 study found that Gonstead chiropractic care was effective in reducing pain and improving function in people with chronic neck pain. Another study, published in 2018, found that Gonstead chiropractic care was effective in reducing pain and improving function in people with chronic low back pain.
