Gonstead Method in Greenville

Woman with arms out at beachDr. Brown has over 30 years of postgraduate education in diagnosis, treatment and adjusting procedures, so he’ll come up with the specific type of treatment that’s most beneficial for each person who comes into our practice.

One of the older and highly effective techniques we use at Brown Chiropractic Center is the Gonstead Method. This is a way to adjust specific joints to ensure they are functioning properly, and the bones are sitting in the joints perfectly, so there’s no occlusion to nerves, and no irritation to muscles, ligaments, and tendons in that area.

Named after its developer, Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. His “foundation principle” describes how a subluxation pattern in one area of the spine can create compensatory changes in another.

For that reason, we evaluate you as a whole person to determine where the adjustment would be most beneficial to bring optimal results.

What to Expect

After reviewing your health history, Dr. Brown will conduct a thorough examination. This typically includes X-rays and precise analysis. Employing a small heat-sensing instrument, slight differences in temperature expose subluxation patterns. Next, he will use his fingertips to palpate or feel the location of individual bones and how they may differ from their normal position.

Dr. Brown will then perform a gentle , effective adjustment to correct any aberrant joint to restore normal functioning.Therapy modality equipment will then be utilized to expedite healing and reduce pain.
