The Gonstead system/technique is a full spine analysis which focuses on addressing the cause of the problem versus compensations. This is done by finding the true subluxation (the bone out of place causing nerve interference). This is done through a thorough analysis of your spine using visualization, instrumentation (a nervoscope), static palpation, motion palpation, and often times x-ray analysis.

The Gonstead technique is the result of thorough research done by Dr. Clarence Gonstead, D.C. Dr. Gonstead graduated from chiropractic school in 1923. During his 55 years of practice he studied the spines of over 200 cadavers, adjusted hundreds of thousands of people from around the world, built the largest chiropractic clinic in Mt. Horeb, WI, and perfected a system of chiropractic that has helped change millions of lives.


The Gonstead technique is based on a level foundation principle. Just as all engineers, contractors, and architects know the importance of a solid foundation when building a structure, we as Gonstead chiropractors know the importance of a strong and level foundation for your spine. The foundation of your spine is formed by your hip bones and the bones (vertebrae) of your lower back. Any little misalignment to this foundation can affect the rest of your spine causing compensations and instability. When the foundation is level there is optimal balance and stability which helps maintain the chiropractic adjustment rather than work against it. It is our goal within the Gonstead technique to be specific by addressing the root of the problem rather than adjust all the compensations​.


To those familiar with chiropractic you will find the adjustment very different from a typical chiropractor. The basis for the Gonstead methodology is focused on the intervertebral disc. From high in your neck (C2) to low in your back (L5) the only way normal vertebrae can subluxate is posteriorly (backwards). Once the vertebrae subluxates the bones can potentially rotate and laterally bend. Often times in chiropractic the rotation and lateral bend are addressed but not the posteriority. It is the goal of a Gonstead chiropractor to address all issues, especially the posteriority so that the spine will stabilize and gain back its level foundation. This is done by adjusting the spine in a neutral position. For example, where other chiropractors might rotate your neck, we adjust the neck in a neutral position. We are able to fix all components of the subluxation by making a specific contact. The specificity we use helps your adjustment hold longer and better.​

What is Chiropractic?


Following are words and their definitions relating to chiropractic as defined in "The Footsteps of Dr. G" by John Cox, D.C...

"Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art of things natural; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column by hand only, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease."

"Dis-ease: not having ease; it is the condition of matter when it does not have ease, in Chiropractic, ease is the entity , and dis-ease is the lack of it."

"vertebral subluxtion: condition of a vertebra that has lost its proper juxtaposition with the one above or the one below, or both, to an extent less than a luxation, which impinges nerves and interferes with the transmission of mental impulses."

Defined by B.J. Palmer in "The Science of Chiropractic" chiropractor is defined as "one who knows the science, art and philosophy of Chiropractic and how to adjust subluxated vertebrae by placing in apposition the articular processes of the vertebral column".

Meeting patient's expectations


Though often times considered "back doctors" chiropractors actually deal with the nervous system via the vertebral column. Chiropractors locate subluxations and adjust them so that your nervous system will function as optimally as possible. Being the fact that your nervous system controls every function/process in your body it is essential to have specific chiropractic care. Subluxations are caused by trauma (micro and macro), stress, and toxins. Everyday we put ourselves at risk for getting a subluxation whether it is by taking a fall, getting into a car accident, worrying about bills or a loved one, or breathing in unavoidable toxins through our air (just to name a few). Let chiropractic restore your nervous system so your body can resist the daily traumas, stresses, and toxins! It's time to start living life fully, let chiropractic help!




Each new patient is required to fill out a History Form. Once the forms are filled out we will go over the history, do an examination using the Gonstead Method and then take x-rays if necessary (for mobile chiropractic x-rays will be referred out if deemed necessary) . Based on our findings I will adjust your specific subluxation(s) and suggest home care such as dietary changes, exercises/stretches, and postural/biomechanical changes that will help promote healing and stabilization in your back.

**Note Dr. Sara prefers to work by appointment so that people are not waiting for extended periods of time.  Please be courteous, if you have made an appointment and are unable to make it for whatever reason and call ahead of time so that the schedule can be adjusted accordingly. Repetitive missed appointments will result in being charged for a "no show" as they are very costly in a mobile unit.**
