Understanding Adjustments and Cavitation "Cracks"

Chiropractic adjustments offer targeted solutions to a wide array of issues by correcting misalignments and facilitating the body’s innate healing processes. 

What Can Be Adjusted?

Demystifying the Cavitation “Crack”:

During an adjustment, you may hear a popping sound, known as cavitation. This is a harmless release of gas from the joint’s fluid, a natural occurrence that often accompanies the correction of a subluxation.

A Brief History of the Gonstead Technique

Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead (1898-1978) transformed chiropractic care into a precise, biomechanically grounded practice. Born in Willow Lake, South Dakota, and later moving with his family to a farm in Primrose, Wisconsin, Gonstead’s early life was steeped in the rigors of farm work at the turn of the 20th century. His childhood not only instilled in him a strong work ethic but also honed his mechanical skills as he became adept at repairing tractors and early automobiles.

As a young adult, Dr. Gonstead encountered a life-altering challenge when he developed rheumatoid arthritis, leading to debilitating knee pain. Traditional medical treatments at the time offered little relief, eventually leading him to chiropractic care. This decision marked a turning point; the significant improvement in his condition not only restored his health but also reshaped his future. Inspired by his own transformative experience, he committed to mastering and advancing chiropractic practices, aiming to provide the same profound impact on others’ lives.

He opened his practice in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, in 1923, focusing on subluxations and x-ray analysis, thereby redefining chiropractic care with his precise, biomechanically sound system. Dr. Gonstead’s dedication to his work and the recognition of a larger public health need led to the establishment of the Gonstead Clinic. This state-of-the-art facility became a beacon for patients worldwide and a center for educating chiropractors in the Gonstead methods. His pioneering efforts, including the Gonstead Disc Concept and the development of innovative chiropractic tools, highlight his commitment to clinical excellence and his profound impact on the profession.

ThE Gold Standard In Chiropractic Care

The Gonstead Technique sets the gold standard in chiropractic care with its exhaustive evaluation process, including detailed analysis of each patient’s posture, gait, and spinal alignment. This holistic assessment goes beyond mere symptomatic relief, targeting the root cause of spinal issues. Its foundation in biomechanics and neurology ensures that every adjustment is specifically tailored to meet individual needs, resulting in more effective and lasting outcomes.
