Dr. Clarence Gonstead was a pioneer in the Chiropractic field. His belief that a more specific application of examination and correction in chiropractic adjustments led to the development of his own technique – the Gonstead System of Chiropractic – that we utilise at Chiropractic Solutions. Dr. Gonstead is one of the most remarkable chiropractors in the history of chiropractic, due to the successful results he attained for his patients. His clinic in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, is testimony to his achievements, with a capacity to seat over 100 patients in reception as well as a landing strip and a motel to accommodate patients flying in from all corners of the USA.
The key to Dr. Gonstead’s amazing results lies in the harmonious balance of science, philosophy and the art of the adjustment. We believe that it is imperative to update our knowledge in the science behind chiropractic without losing the importance of having a strong philosophy and art behind the application of the chiropractic adjustment.
Over the month of August, Dr. Neil and Dr. Justin attended Gonstead Seminars in order to better their knowledge and application of Chiropractic for their patients.
Attending the ‘Homecoming’ Gonstead Seminar in Dr. Gonstead’s huge Mt Horeb clinic in Wisconsin, Dr. Neil has described his experience of being able to observe, learn, and teach in the very place that has such a significance in the history of Chiropractic as a “surreal experience”. He will write more about his experiences and how they’ve inspired him in future newsletters.
Dr. Justin has also learned from some of the best Gonstead practitioners at the recent International Melbourne Gonstead Seminar.
Together, Dr. Neil & Dr. Justin have attained more knowledge and increased their passion to better their practice and application of the Gonstead System for the benefit of their patients. They look forward to seeing you soon.
