THE GONSTEAD SYSTEM
"If it's not specific, it is not Chiropractic" - B.J. Palmer
Ever since Daniel D. Palmer delivered the first chiropractic adjustment in 1895, chiropractic has come a long way. Today, there are many different systems and methods of caring for people that do not fit within the realm of Principled Chiropractic. These systems and methods are primarily practiced by "Chiropractors" and are often called "Chiropractic", but are generally not specific and would be consider more of a "gross manipulation". The public perception of Chiropractic has thus become watered down to the point where people aren't entirely sure of what they are going to get when they walk into a "Chiropractic" clinic. The most common approach utilized by chiropractors is a “mixed bag” of chiropractic techniques and therapies which typically only address the joint fixation (stiffness) aspect.
