Experience The Difference
Chiropractors detect and correct subluxations. If your condition, whether pain or some visceral condition like asthma, is caused by a subluxation, your Carlsbad chiropractor can help. Chiropractors correct the cause of the symptom, not merely covering the symptom. The Gonstead system as taught by Dr. Gohl is the most structurally and bio-mechanically specific that produces measurable results.

A Chiropractic Journey
In 2004, Dr. Kametz had the good fortune of meeting and working side by side with Gonstead chiropractic legend Dr. Richard A. Gohl. Many Gonstead practitioners believe he is the greatest chiropractor to live. Over the next eight years, Dr. Kametz devoted his time and resources to train and practice with Dr. Gohl. He died in 2012 after 60 years in active practice. Our practice and clinic is named in honor of Dr. Gohl and the work he devoted his entire life to.

that normally have no effect on people) resulting in sneezing, coughing, congestion, hives, rashes, and in severe cases, seizure and anaphylactic shock. These symptoms are caused by the histamines your immune system creates in an attempt to protect your body against the allergen.
When your spine is misaligned it can impinge on the nerves in your body. The nervous system controls everything including chemical and hormone release. Any insult to the nervous system will cause the body to not function properly, and your immune system cannot work at an optimal level.
Chiropractors realign the spine to relieve any stress on nerves. This allows the immune system to work at a higher level, making it easier to fight off infections while recognizing allergens. When your immune system recognizes allergens, it will not overreact to them, or at least not react as severely to them.
In our office, most patients report a decrease in the severity and the frequency of allergies, and most cease taking drugs all together. Chiropractic does not work like an anti-histamine as a direct, short term relief from allergies. Chiropractic allows your body to be better equipped to fight against allergies. If you suffer from allergies, please call and schedule a consultation to see if you qualify for care.
including cartilage and bone. It mostly happens in weight bearing joints such as the knees, hips, and spine. It is also common in the neck and hands.
Over time, degenerated joints may cause stiffness and strain the supporting muscle. This generally will lead to the body compensating consciously or not. Here the body will begin to develop bone spurs to protect the joints from excessive movement.
When there is a subluxation, there is always a bone in the spine that is fixed into position. When the subluxation is corrected, often time normal body movement will ensue. When there is no longer any need for extra joint protection, often times the bone will resorb as calcium into the blood stream.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
effects on the hands and arms. Repetitive movements which are not performed with good ergonomics in mind can cause micro-trauma to the hands and wrists. This trauma combined with joint dysfunction and spinal problems may result in a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome.
The median nerve, which is affected in carpal tunnel syndrome, travels from spinal cord from the lower neck, down the arm, through the wrist and to the tips of the fingers. If one or more of these structures are affected, symptoms of wrist pain, numbness, weakness, burning and loss of muscle function can occur.
Surgery is usually unnecessary because it deals with the wrist, and more often than not that pain is caused by misalignment of the bones in the lower neck. Chiropractic can assure that all of the joints and muscles along the path of the nerve are free of obstruction and functioning normally, thus reducing nerve irritation and pain. If you suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, please call and schedule a consultation to see if you qualify for care.
Failed Back Surgery
If this is you, there may be hope. We have worked with surgery cases where there has been a complete recovery from symptoms. For these candidates there is a special program at the office. Please call and schedule a consultation to see if you qualify.
Chiropractors analyze and correct spinal subluxations.
Subluxation is a condition when the spinal bones, instead of protecting the delicate nerves, interfere with the nerves. This causes damage to the end organ attached to them.
There are four characteristics of a subluxation.
1) Misalignment – bone twist out of normal position
2) Occlusion – when the hole the nerve passes thru gets smaller
3) Pressure – smaller hole causes increased pressure on the nerves
4) Interference – pinched nerves restricts nerve impulses to organs
Since subluxations interfere with the master control center of the body, they may cause any condition in the body. Often times subluxations produce pain, but this is at the end state of disease, not the beginning.
When an organ gets a restricted nerve impulse, over time the cells malfunction at that organ. If enough cells malfunction, then you have a symptom. If symptoms persist long enough, then you have a pathology which is now a medical condition.
If your primary condition is a subluxation, chiropractic can help any secondary condition from asthma to irregular menses to colic to back pain. Once the subluxation is corrected, normal function will begin. Please call today for a no cost consultation to determine if you or your loved ones have a chiropractic condition.
Injuries happen when the body cannot adapt to the physical stress placed upon it. This is often the case in golf.
Most often the pain and discomfort is caused by a vertebral subluxation.
The twisting of the spine (along with flexing forward) is the most damaging to the discs, which protect the nerves. Over time if the subluxation is not corrected, neurologic malfunction become more prevalent, the discs begin to degenerate, and the spine in an attempt to protect itself develops arthritis.
Common manipulative technique used in chiropractic involves a twisting of the pelvis. While this may temporarily work for decreasing pain and increasing motion, the continuous twisting will further damage lumbar discs giving rise to more inflammation around the nerves. In our office, we use a specific technique that requires no twisting of the spine for adjustments. This facilitates the healing process quicker and for more lasting effects.

Headaches & Migraines
When there is spinal misalignment, the bones protecting the spinal cord interfere with the nerves instead of protecting them. This interference causes the body will malfunction somehow, either directly by causing pain or indirectly by not chemically or hormonally balancing the body properly. Often a symptom of this is a migraine headache.
Once the pressure on the nerves is relieved, the body has no reason for pain and can balance itself chemically and hormonally and function properly.
