New Health Medical’s Chiropractic Gonstead treatment
New Health Medical uses the Gonstead method of chiropractic, which is recognized as the most scientific and precise method of chiropractic in the world. The main difference between the Gonstead method and other systems of chiropractic is it addresses all potential directions in which a spinal joint can misalign, which may cause nerve irritation. When it comes to specific analysis and vertebral misalignment correction, the Gonstead method is second to none.
Before performing a Gonstead adjustment, our doctors at New Health Medical will perform different methods of chiropractic analysis, such as collecting medical history, static and motion palpitation, instrumentation, and x-ray analysis.
Our Gonstead chiropractors use a unique, biomechanical approach to the spine, wherein they relate its structure to how they will adjust it. Our chiropractors will ensure that the patient is in a mechanically correct position for the adjustment, which is key to making a correction effective and painless.
What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession centered on nervous system and spine disorders, how these affect a person’s overall health. A chiropractor mainly performs manipulations or adjustments to the patient’s spine or other body parts in order to repair misalignments, improve function and range of motion, alleviate pain, and assist the body’s built-in healing ability.
What does a chiropractic treatment involve?
In most cases, chiropractors will first take a patient’s medical history, conduct a physical exam, and use diagnostic procedures such as x-ray analysis and/or lab tests to determine whether chiropractic treatment is appropriate.
The procedure itself typically involves one or two manual adjustments or manipulations, which are performed by the chiropractor using sudden, controlled pressure on the spine or affected area.
In addition to chiropractic treatment, many chiropractors will recommend other methods that supplement the procedure, such as massage therapy, exercise, stretching, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound.
When considering treatment for problems such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, or other musculoskeletal or nervous system disorders, chiropractic is among the safest, non-invasive, and drug-free methods available.
After getting chiropractic treatment, many patients report feeling immediate relief, as a successful adjustment restores mobility, which alleviates muscle tightness, pain, and assists natural healing.
Why is it important to address issues such as back pain?
Our spinal columns are exposed to physical stress mainly due to overuse and sometimes because of sudden trauma or injury. When this happens, it can cause a negative effect on our nervous system, blood supply, and muscles, eventually leading to pain, dysfunction, and poor health.
