Gonstead/Diversified Technique

adjusting patientAt Barham Chiropractic we offer a range of techniques to provide our patients with the best care, including Gonstead and Diversified. These adjusting techniques cater to each person’s specific needs while ensuring helpful and holistic care.

Chiropractors Dr Chris and Dr Daniel prefer to adjust patients seated while chiropractors Dr Mary-Lou and Dr Brent tend to adjust supine (on the patient’s back). Both techniques get great results for our patients!

Precision Care With the Gonstead Technique

The Gonstead Technique, developed by Dr. Clarence Gonstead, is hailed as the “gold standard” in chiropractic, emphasising evidence-based practices and a holistic approach to address subluxation patterns throughout the spine.

Based on the “foundation principle,” which recognises how subluxations in one area of the spine can impact the entire body, our thorough examination includes a health history review, full spine X-rays, heat-sensing instrument analysis and palpation for precise adjustments.

What to Expect

Adjustments are tailored to your needs, with techniques like side-lying adjustments for the lower spine and seated adjustments for neck integrity restoration. Cavitation or “popping” sounds may occur as signs of positive changes in joint function.

Diversified Technique: The Most Used Method Worldwide

Our practice also offers the Diversified Technique, a hands-on approach for manually adjusting spinal bones to restore alignment naturally. The most commonly used method, care begins with a detailed spine analysis, including case history and X-rays, as needed. Techniques like motion palpation and leg checks help identify misalignments, such as where to administer the precise manual thrusts to make the appropriate spinal corrections.

During Diversified adjustments, you may experience a slight “crack or popping” sound, indicating positive shifts in joint mechanics and often bringing relief. This technique enhances spinal biomechanics and improves range of motion in various joints.
