The Gonstead Technique in Cary

The Gonstead Technique in Cary NC

Unlike other chiropractors, we use a highly effective, gentle, and specific adjusting approach called the Gonstead Technique in Cary. Considered the gold standard of chiropractic care, it is one of the most complete methods of spinal analysis available for chiropractors today.

Less than 2% of chiropractors in North Carolina specialize in the Gonstead Technique.

The Gonstead Chiropractor goes beyond what many chiropractors consider a spinal assessment by conducting a thorough analysis of your spine using five criteria to detect the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex.


Posture is the window into the spine. The Gonstead chiropractor is an expert in noticing very subtle changes in your posture and movement which not only indicate any problems, but also confirm what he may be finding with the other analysis tools listed below.

The Nervoscope detects uneven distributions of heat along the spine. This instrument indicates to the doctor areas of inflammation and nerve pressure. This instrument is guided down the length of your spine and feels like two fingers gliding down each side of your back.

Static Palpation
This is the process of feeling the bony and soft tissue structures of the spine to detect inflammation, swelling, tenderness, and irregular muscle tone.

Motion Palpation
This process involves feeling the spine while it is in motion to detect abnormal motion.

Full Spine X-ray Analysis
The Gonstead chiropractor utilizes full spine X-ray films to evaluate posture, joint and disc integrity and vertebral misalignment. Also they help to rule out any pathology or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s symptoms. These full-spine X-rays are taken in the standing, weight-bearing position to fully substantiate the examination findings. Since everyone’s spine is unique, your doctor will use the films to provide you with the highest quality of care.
