USING THE GOLD STANDARD IN “HANDS ON” SPINAL ADJUSTING

Boyer Chiropractic and Wellness Center utilizes the Gonstead Technique of chiropractic. Gonstead represents the ultimate standard in “hands on” spinal adjusting and remains the leader in chiropractic techniques.

Adhering to the definition of true chiropractic as defined by D. D. Palmer, the founder of Chiropractic in 1895, Dr. Gonstead found there was no substitute or better method for analyzing or correcting spinal misalignments than with a pair of skilled chiropractic hands. This remains true today.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF GONSTEAD CHIROPRACTIC

Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead (1898-1978) began practicing chiropractic in 1923 in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, in a small farming community of 1,200 residents in south central Wisconsin. Dr. Gonstead’s reputation spread throughout the state, the country and ultimately around the world, as a multitude of patient’s health problems were corrected remarkably fast by his brand of chiropractic treatment.

Hundreds of patients were seeking his care on a daily basis. With his dedication to helping these patients, Dr. Gonstead worked incredible hours from 8am to midnight and even Sunday mornings to be able to accommodate these growing patient numbers. When Dr. Gonstead’s schedule was at the limit of his physical capability, he knew the only solution to meet the public’s health needs on the scale the public was demanding, was to build an unparalleled chiropractic treatment facility and staff it with Gonstead trained associates.
