Different criteria in the Gonstead system
Visualization- This is mainly done once the patient walks in. Your posture and gait are going to be analyzed to identify various problems.
Instrumentation- Nervoscoper is the apparatus of choice when it comes to the Gonstead system. The device is used to measure the unbalanced circulation heat from the spine that can identify swelling and nerve pressure. The device is placed on a patient’s back then slides down from top to bottom.
Static palpation- This is the process of palpating the spine in place. The chiropractor will check for swelling, tenderness, and any unusual feeling in the muscles and tissues of the back area.
Motion palpation- The Chiropractor will assess your spine as you move or bend down. This will determine the person’s spine mobility at all angles.
X-ray- X-ray films have the ability to visualize the entire framework of the spine by your doctor. This is practical in assessing the posture, disc integrity, and joints. In addition, it is to rule out any conditions that may contribute to the patient’s condition. This will be taken while the patient is standing upright, maintaining a weight-bearing position for better visualization.
After going through the complete assessment, the chiropractor will check if the person will undergo neck adjustment or any chiropractic manipulations. Alterations utilizing the Gonstead approach are made to be as exact, distinct, and exact as possible, targeting mainly the misalignment of the spine. The chiropractic adjustment is made by hand by adding gentle pressure in a quick and focused manner. While the process is happening, the chiropractor will make sure that the patient is not in any form of distress or danger; at the same time, the patient is in a correct anatomical position to make the process as goes accordingly well.
When the session is successful, the body will organically heal, recovering the normal function to the spine and making the patient’s range of motion even better.
