Gonstead Chiropractors utilize a specific process when analyzing a patient for misalignments in their spine.  Misalignments in the spine can irritate nerves in those areas, affecting many different tissues, organs and systems.

  1. Visualization – Visualization is a way to cross reference all the other findings. Dr. Kasperbauer looks for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems. Watching a patient’s gait is a useful way to help analyze dysfunction.
  2. Instrumentation – The Nervoscope detects uneven distributions of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure. This instrument is guided down the length of your back and feels like two fingers gliding down each side of your spine.
  3. Static Palpation – This is simply the process of feeling your spine in a stationary position. Dr. Kasperbauer will feel for the presence of swelling, tenderness and any abnormal texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues of your back.
  4. Motion Palpation – This process involves feeling the spine while moving and bending it at various angles. This enables Dr. Kasperbauer to determine how easily or difficult each segment in your spine moves in different directions.
  5. X-Ray Analysis – x-ray films enable Dr. Kasperbauer to visualize the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in evaluating posture, joint and disc integrity, vertebral misalignments and ruling out any pathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s condition. These full-spine radiographs are taken in the standing, weight-bearing position to fully substantiate the examination findings.

The Process:
First we conduct a thorough consultation to help determine any aspect of nerve irritation; or subluxation.  Remember people of all ages deserve to have their spines checked for nerve interference, subluxation.

Following our exam we will report all findings in an easy to understand language and if necessary our recommendation for care.

Our courteous and friendly staff will help in any way possible. Some insurance companies cover chiropractic care and as a courtesy to our patients, our office can complete and file your insurance.

To enjoy optimum physical and emotional well being, our bodies have to be working properly, with a nerve supply that can relay electrical impulses from the brain to every organ and cell – and back again – without interference or distortion.

If anything interferes with this nerve supply, we can experience a variety of responses including pain, stiffness, a specific illness, reduced immune response, an imbalance in body chemistry or dysfunction in one or more of the body’s other life support systems.

If we’re lucky, the interference will trigger symptoms which act as “warning signals,” telling us something is wrong. Yet, too often, the effects are so subtle we don’t realize anything’s wrong until it’s too late. Many serious health problems can be traced to the devastating effects of nerve interference which weakens organs without displaying outward signs.

Nerve interference – also called vertebral subluxation – is a misalignment of bones along the spinal column. Nerves branching off the spinal cord from the brain pass through small openings between the interlocking bones and travel throughout the body. When the bones are out of their normal positions – which can happen due to injury, bad posture, muscle imbalance, or even emotional or chemical stress – the subluxation will cause interference in the flow of nerve energy.

The only safe and effective way to correct a subluxation is to go to a doctor of chiropractic for an adjustment. This is the term for the specific application of forces used to facilitate the body’s correction of nerve interference. Doctors of chiropractic are the only health professionals who have the extensive training and experience necessary to detect and correct vertebral subluxation.
