Van Koert Chiropractic is specialized in the Gonstead method. This method goes one step further than most other treatments. The motto of founder Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead is: “Seeing is knowing, not knowing is gambling. I prefer not to gamble with your health. “
We examine and analyze the entire spine. We look at subtle changes in freedom of movement and the posture of the back, which can lead to problems.
According to Gonstead, a small imbalance or torsion in the position of the pelvis or lower back can cause a greater deviation in the back (between the shoulder blades) and the neck. Because the body wants to compensate for the (slight) skew at the bottom, which often leads to shoulder complaints, headaches and neck pain. Head and shoulders can also stand slightly forward (“Anterior Head Syndrome”), which in turn causes chronic overload of the neck, shoulders and upper back muscles.
The Gonstead technique consists of a thorough analysis and correction method. This promotes the functioning of our skeleton, muscles and nervous system structurally and functionally.
