Gonstead Technique, developed by Dr. Clarrance Gonstead, is an advanced system of analysis and precision specific adjustment of the spine. This method is more difficult to learn and master then general techniques, but results in a much more specific and safer adjustment placing forces into the spine in only the areas that need correction. to learn more. . .
This technique makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or "drop pieces" located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.
