The Gonstead Technique is one of the oldest, and most precise forms of Chiropractic care, founded by Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead, D.C. in the early 1930's. The Gonstead Concept of chiropractic begins with a basic biomechanical principle of physics. Every engineer, architect, builder and carpenter knows the importance of a proper foundation in constructing a building, for this insures durability and long life. Any slight change or shift in the foundation can cause a great amount of deviation in the top part of the structure and, perhaps, ultimately, its collapse With the use of Full Spine radiography, the spine is analyzed with a precision measurement system that identifies the true cause of one's spinal dysfunction and helps identify the exact form of correction that is needed. Rather than going off "feel" or unreliable tests that many Chiropractors use, the Gonstead technique identifies, to the millimeter, the exact direction of misalignment through X-ray so the Chiropractor can make a precise adjustment to help restore normal alignment and function. The purpose behind this is to correct the cause of the problem rather than providing a temporary fix. Every patient receives their own precise and exact measurement listings needed for their adjustment before treatment ever begins. Lastly, one of the major defining aspects of the Gonstead Technique is the seated cervical adjustment. Touted as the safest and most effective form of Cervical Treatment, the Gonstead Technique sets itself apart from all other forms of Chiropractic care with this method. Rather than laying a patient flat on their back and inducing rotation, which is inherently dangerous, the patient remains seated for the treatment. This provides a quicker, safer, and more effective form of correction. Dr. Anthony Oberti, D.C., at Whole Health Chiropractic in Nampa, Idaho, is one of the very few Chiropractors in Idaho that specializes in the Gonstead Technique. With over 15yrs of experience in the Gonstead System, Dr. Oberti is able to provide for his patients something that very few Chiropractors can.
