A Comprehensive Approach to Spinal Health

Welcome to VIDA Chiropractic Studio, where we specialize in the Gonstead Technique, a unique and effective approach to spinal health. Developed by Dr. Clarence Gonstead in the mid-20th century, this technique has revolutionized chiropractic care. Unlike traditional methods, this technique is renowned for its detailed and thorough approach to diagnosis and treatment, ensuring a highly individualized and precise chiropractic experience.

Understanding the Technique

At the heart of the Gonstead Technique is a comprehensive examination process. This begins with a detailed health history, followed by a complete analysis using specific x-rays. These images provide a blueprint of your spine, allowing our chiropractors to understand your unique spinal structure and identify any misalignments.

Visual assessments are conducted to note posture and movement patterns, which often provide clues to spinal health. Motion palpation, another cornerstone of the technique, involves feeling the spine while moving and bending at various angles. This helps in detecting any abnormal motion or misalignments.

The precision of these adjustments is unmatched. Our chiropractors use specific information gathered from the examination to deliver precise and targeted adjustments. This focus on specificity not only improves the effectiveness of each session but also enhances safety, reducing the risk of discomfort or complications.

Conditions Treated With This Technique

The Gonstead Technique is versatile, effectively addressing a range of conditions. Common issues such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are frequently treated with success. It’s also highly effective for more specific conditions like sciatica and disc injuries.

Moreover, this technique is adaptable, offering benefits to patients of all ages. From pediatric to geriatric patients, it is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual, emphasizing wellness and preventive care.

Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common ailments treated with the Gonstead Technique. Whether it’s a result of poor posture, injury, or chronic conditions, our chiropractors meticulously analyze your spine using specific X-rays and palpation techniques. The adjustments are then tailored to target the specific vertebrae causing discomfort, thereby providing relief and promoting long-term spinal health.

Neck Pain

Neck pain can stem from various factors including stress, injury, and prolonged sitting. The Gonstead Technique addresses this by focusing on the cervical spine. Our precise adjustments aim to restore normal motion and relieve pressure on nerves, often providing immediate relief from pain and stiffness.


Many headaches are linked to issues in the cervical spine. By correcting misalignments in the neck through adjustments, we can often reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches, including migraines.


Sciatica, characterized by pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, is often caused by a lumbar spine misalignment. Our chiropractors use the technique to specifically target and adjust the affected areas, providing relief from sciatica symptoms.

Disc Injuries

Disc injuries can be debilitating, but the precision of this technique can be particularly beneficial. By accurately identifying the injured discs and applying targeted adjustments, we help alleviate pain and aid in the healing process.
