Experience Personalized Chiropractic Care with the Gonstead Technique at South Main Chiropractic

At South Main Chiropractic in Lexington, NC, we recognize the uniqueness of each individual. That’s why we’re excited to offer specialized chiropractic adjustments, including the esteemed Gonstead technique. This method is renowned as the pinnacle of chiropractic approaches, offering you care based on scientific evidence.

Understanding the Gonstead Technique

Developed by Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this technique originates from his expertise in engineering. The fundamental principle of this method is that a subluxation (misalignment) in one part of the spine can lead to compensatory changes elsewhere. We consider your entire well-being, not just your spinal health, to identify the most impactful adjustment areas for effective results.

Your Journey to Wellness

Your path to improved health begins with a thorough review of your medical history, followed by a comprehensive examination. This typically includes full spine X-rays and detailed analysis. We employ a sensitive heat-detecting instrument to identify subluxation patterns through subtle temperature variations. Additionally, our skilled hands palpate your spine to detect any deviations from normal alignment.

During adjustments, various positions are used based on the targeted area. For lower spine and pelvis adjustments, you’ll be positioned on your side. Corrections in the middle back are made while you’re in a kneeling posture. For cervical spine adjustments, we ensure your comfort and safety without twisting or rotating your neck.

You might occasionally hear a minor “popping” sound, known as cavitation. Whether you hear it or not, rest assured, it’s a step toward better health!
