Just as the habit of working out or eating well is necessary for living an overall healthy life, chiropractic also is essential for healthy living. Chiropractic is the only profession to correct vertebral subluxations in the spine affecting overall function of the body.
Male in his late 40s is in for a maintenance checkup and adjustment, using all the Gonstead criteria. Instrumentation shows the location of the subluxation. Static palpation confirms inflammation due to damaged discs and muscle spasm. Motion palpation reveals restricted motion at the individual segment. Visualization shows abnormal posture. The xray confirms the misalignment. When all criteria align, we give an adjustment to that segment.
Above is a typical maintenance visit.
A subluxation is a condition where a spinal bone shifts out of position and interferes with the integrity of the nervous system. Since the nervous system controls all function, a subluxation can have a negative effect on the entire body and brain.
This is a Gonstead chiropractic adjustment used to reduce nerve interference to the body and brain, allowing normal function to take place. Are you experiencing these symptoms and have found no relief? Maybe you have subluxation. Call your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad today at 760-729-8802 to schedule an appointment.
When correcting the sacrum or L5, it’s necessary to lock the pelvis enough to take out the slack at the bone. This is a well developed CrossFitter. Taking slack out on him requires a bit of strength, however the force is very little. Once the slack is out and the pelvis locked, you can set the sacrum P to A with very little effort and speed. This is very comfortable for the patient, and much easier on the doctor. When you don’t take out the slack enough, the natural tendency is to thrust thru with more force or more speed. Neither is necessarily comfortable and puts more trauma into the spine.
Everything Dr. Kametz ever learned about adjusting is from working side by side for 8 years with the legendary Gonstead Chiropractor, Dr. Richard Gohl. You can find his products at www.gohlchiropractic.com. The site is run by his daughter, Diane, who put together all his material in a teachable fashion. His work represents the definitive work on chiropractic and it’s essential for everyone to know, especially those interested in the Gonstead system.
