“Improving Range of Motion with a Gonstead Chiropractic Adjustment”
The Gonstead Chiropractic Adjustment Technique is a method of adjusting spinal misalignments. These misaligned spinal vertebrae can cause disc pressure and may lead to nerve irritation and pain. The goal of a Gonstead Chiropractic Adjustment is to identify which spinal segments are out of alignment, and by adjusting the spine, help the body perform to its optimum potential. Gonstead also helps identify any postural problems, and patients notice that they can sit up straighter and have better posture with regular Gonstead adjustment treatments.

Gonstead is now taught at most Chiropractic colleges including Palmer College, as part of the Palmer Package of adjusting techniques.
What does a Gonstead Chiropractic Adjustment feel like?
