The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible, addressing only the problem areas (areas of subluxation). Great care is taken to ensure a bio-mechanically correct position and precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible. It is the goal of your Gonstead doctor to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.
The Thompson Drop Technique uses a drop table to enhance the motion of an area to be adjusted. The chiropractor applies a quick thrust at the same time the section drops. It allows the Doctor to safely, specifically, and comfortably adjust the joints of the body. The dropping of the table allows for a lighter adjustment without the twisting positions that can accompany other.
ACTIVATOR (PROFICIENCY RATED)

The technique had been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960’s, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns. Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator method has grown to become the world’s most widely-used instrument chiropractic technique.
