Our unique multi-specialty healthcare group uses medicine, physical rehabilitation, Gonstead chiropractic, accupuncture, massage, and nutrition to help our patients reach their optimum state of health in the shortest time possible.
State of the Art Rehabilitation
In the arena of musculoskeletal injury treatment and rehabilitation, our clinic stands alone. Our doctors and therapists utilize the most highly developed systems of treatment in existence. Focusing on active rehabilitation of injuries, our doctors employ Med-X, Hanoun, Rehab Dynamics, Synergy, Exer-cor, and many other sophisticated pieces of equipment to allow proper and effective isolation, re-training, and stabilization of injured muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
The Gonstead Method of Chiropractic is the most scientific and most thorough method of chiropractic available. Unlike other systems of chiropractic, the Gonstead Method addresses all of the possible directions in which a spinal bone can misalign, causing irritation to a nerve. The Gonstead Method’s system of specific analysis and correction of vertebral misalignments is unparalleled by any other.
Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead, the developer of the Gonstead system, was raised on a dairy farm in Mount Vernon, Wisconsin and before becoming a chiropractor, worked as a mechanical engineer for JI Case Co. He graduated from Palmer School of Chiropractic in 1923 and opened his office in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. Dr. Gonstead applied the principles of engineering to the human spine as he developed his system of chiropractic. Over the next 54 years, Dr. Gonstead perfected his method of chiropractic, helping hundreds of thousands of patients in his clinic seven days a weak and many times until far past midnight. Because of the immensity of his practice, Dr. Gonstead built a tremendous 19,000 square foot clinic, a 76 room hotel next door for his patients who traveled from all over the world, and an air strip for those who flew in to receive care.
Dr. Gonstead also developed a seminar and taught his work to thousands of other chiropractors throughout the world. The Gonstead Method is still being taught, as Dr. Gonstead developed it, at the Gonstead Clinic in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin.
New Health Medical uses the following thorough methods of analysis:
- Case History
A complete and thorough health history is essential in the Gonstead Method of Chiropractic. Our Gonstead doctors use information from your past and current symptoms, illnesses, and conditions, as well as a history of accidents, falls, and other injuries, in evaluating your spine and overall health.
- Our Gonstead doctors also use an instrument, much like a thermometer, to measure heat distribution near the spine. Abnormal heat distribution is a sign that there may be nerve dysfunction and joint swelling in the spine and will help to evaluate for possible vertebral misalignments.
- Static Palpation
- Your spine, when misaligned, will send warning signals to your body. Muscles may become tight or tender and other tissues surrounding the spine may become inflamed causing swelling and nerve irritation. To detect these warning signals, Our Gonstead doctors use static palpation, which simply means that they run their fingers over (or palpates) your spine in a static (or stationary) position. They are looking for edema, swelling, and tight or tender muscle fibers which are factors indicating a vertebral misalignment.
- Motion Palpation
- Like static palpation, our Gonstead doctors palpate your spine while bending (or motioning) it at different angles to determine the range of motion, or how easily or difficult each segment of your spine moves. For example, there may be problems if you can bend further to the right than to the left. Lack of motion is also one of the factors indicating a vertebral misalignment.
- X-ray Analysis
- To further understand the condition of your spine, it is also important to view the structure of your spine through the use of an x-ray examination. Our doctors evaluate for signs of pathology (or disease) and fractures, as well as evaluating the joints of the spine, the condition of the intervertebral discs, posture, overall biomechanics, and signs of vertebral misalignments or other conditions of the spine. Our doctors also uses x-rays to visualize the position of each vertebrae so that they can adjust (or manipulate) the spine and correct the vertebral misalignments as gently, specifically, and effectively as possible.
The Gonstead Adjustment
After complete evaluation using these methods of analysis, our Gonstead doctors are ready to provide gentle, specific, and precise adjustments.
Gonstead chiropractors approach the spine biomechanically, which simply means that they relate the structure of the spine to how they will adjust it. Our doctors take great care in making sure that you are in a mechanically correct position for your adjustment. Accurate positioning and precision adjusting is essential to insure that the correction is as thorough and painless as possible.
Our Gonstead doctors also specialize in the complete evaluation and correction of misaligned joints of the upper and lower limbs.

HIDDEN FOOD ALLERGY TESTING
“95 Out of 100 People Are and They Don’t Even Know It…”
If you suffer from frequent or chronic illnesses, fatigue, irritability, or nagging aches and pain, chances are your body is having a toxic reaction to certain foods you’re eating and you don’t even know it.
Now, one simple blood test can help determine exactly which foods are like “poison” to your body. Eliminate them from your diet, and there’s a good chance you can start to enjoy blessed relief from health problems you may have thought would never go away.
Do you or your loved ones suffer from ANY of these common health problems?
- Digestive disorders
- Ear Aches
- Female problems
- Heart problems
- Memory problems
- Muscle pain
- Sinus problems
- Skin rashes
- Vision problems
It’s easy to pinpoint which foods are wrong for you…It’s called the Immuno 1 Bloodprint Test, and it checks your blood to see if you’re having a “toxic reaction” to common, everyday foods.
What most people don’t realize is that the foods they’re eating – normally healthy foods like wheat, milk, eggs, corn, etc. – can often cause a subtle but unhealthy reaction in their bodies. Over time, the toxic reaction builds up and can cause all kinds of chronic health problems.
Everybody’s body is a little bit different. Foods that are healthy and nutritious for one person may actually be like eating poison for another! And that’s where the Immuno 1 Bloodprint Test comes in. To learn more about the Immuno 1 Bloodprint Test or to schedule an appointment please contact our office at (310) 373-8595.
A 26 year ongoing study reveals that 95% of the population has what is known as a “type two” toxic reaction (lgG response) to common everyday foods that you eat regularly. Unfortunately the foods that cause this toxic shock vary widely according to your individual system.
