Whether you are recovering from a workplace injury, dealing with the aches and pains of an intense workout, or just trying to handle the stresses of daily life, a few well-timed chiropractic adjustments could help you feel better. Adjusting your spine with chiropractic care can also adjust your overall health and attitude.
Chiropractic adjustments are not just for athletes and those recovering from injuries. Even if you are perfectly healthy, the right chiropractic care can provide enormous pain relief and an overall sense of well being. And while there are many forms of chiropractic care available, the Gonstead Technique is arguably one of the most effective.
What is the Gonstead Technique?
Dr. Clarence Gonstead was an automotive engineer turned chiropractor, who took engineering and physics principles and applied those principles to the spine. He created a specific biomechanical approach to the human spine, which later became known as the Gonstead Technique.
The Gonstead technique emphasizes that the vertebral disc is the primary culprit of nerve pressure causing back pain or neck pain.
The Gonstead Technique is difficult to master, and only one percent of all chiropractors use Gonstead because it is time-consuming to perfect. However, Dr. Myshka has spent many years making specific and precise adjustments to every bone in the spine to master the Gonstead technique. You can count on Myshka Chiropractic to provide just the right Gonstead adjustments to help relieve back and neck pain!
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
Chiropractors who follow the Gonstead Technique analyze the entire back using the biomechanical, engineering, and physics developed by Dr. Gonstead.
Your Gonstead chiropractor will:
- Perform a complete analysis of your spine
- Deliver any necessary Gonstead adjustments
- Address the specific problem areas (subluxations)
Great care is taken to ensure a biomechanically correct position and precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible.
It is the goal of your Gonstead doctor to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by the vertebral subluxation.
Dr. Gonstead stated:
“Find the subluxation, accept it where you find it, correct it and leave it alone.”
Chiropractic adjustments based on the Gonstead Technique could provide the pain relief you are looking for, give you your life back, and help you get on with the rest of your day.
Chiropractic Adjustments with the Gonstead Technique
Even if you are not suffering from chronic back pain, chiropractic care using the Gonstead Technique might be able to help. Misalignment of the spine and pressure on the discs in the back do not always manifest as back pain; the pain often travels to other parts of your body. If you have been experiencing mysterious symptoms or changes in the way you feel, schedule an appointment with Dr. Myshka today.
Dr. Myshka will evaluate your body and the alignment of your spinal column. Gonstead chiropractic assessment utilizes several methods of examination to analyze and uncover:
- Intervertebral disc lesions
- Intervertebral misalignments
- Misalignment of the pelvic girdle
- Neurological ramifications of vertebral subluxation
Intervertebral disc injury is the main cause of spinal subluxations, therefore, Gonstead chiropractic adjustments are designed for maximum effect to the discs, but they can also work to restore proper alignment, motion, and balance while providing pain relief.
Dealing with ongoing back pain and discomfort is not always easy, but that does not mean you should suffer in silence and resign yourself to a life that is less than you had hoped for. If you have been seeking treatment for your symptoms but have not achieved success, you do not have to give up.
Our experienced chiropractor can work with your body and make the necessary chiropractic adjustments that can relieve your pain. Dr. Myshka understands the nature of the body and follows the nuances of the Gonstead Technique. This unique approach to chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustments just might change your life for the better, and that is good news for you and your spine.
