What makes Gonstead Chiropractors so special?

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.

“Your nervous system controls and coordinates every function in your body.” Chiropractors have the ability to directly stimulate the nervous system by pinpointing dysfunction to allow for optimum function.

When it comes to your health and your nervous system, we are going to take the right measures to ensure that your body can function at its highest potential.


While most chiropractors work to improve range of motion and decrease pain with general manipulation, Gonstead chiropractors take the extra time to analyze and determine which single vertebra needs correction to allow the body to properly heal.  The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible, addressing only the problem areas (areas of subluxation).  


Gonstead procedures are the result of extensive clinical research by Clarence S.Gonstead, founder of the world famous Gonstead Clinic of Chiropractic in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin and his associates. Dr. Gonstead’s fifty-five years of continuous practice and over four million chiropractic adjustments resulted in the most complete method of biomechanical analysis available for use by today’s doctors of chiropractic. So why don’t all chiropractors use this technique? Because the analysis takes more time and mastering the art of delivering a specific adjustment takes a LOT of practice and dedication.

To ensure that we are giving our practice members the best care possible, Dr. Rob and Dr. Chelsea have spent more than 440 hours of graduate training in the technique, participated in over 6 seminars and both are certified in Dr. Herb Wood’s Gonstead bootcamp training. Multiple seminars are attended each year to ensure that our practice members are receiving the ‘gold standard of care’ that they deserve.
