Examples of "gonstead"
The Gonstead technique or Gonstead system is a chiropractic method developed by Clarence Gonstead in the 1940s. The technique focuses on hands-on adjustment and has been credited with expanding standard Diversified technique by implementing additional instrumentation including X-rays, Gonstead Radiographic Parallel, a measuring device, and the development of the pseudoscientific Nervo-Scope device. The technique gained popularity in the 1960s.
Clarence Gonstead was born in Willow Lake, South Dakota the son of Carl Gonstead (1871 – 1956) and Sarah Gonstead (1874 – 1918). His family later moved to a dairy farm in Primrose, Wisconsin. At the age of 19, Gonstead was bedridden with rheumatoid arthritis. He enrolled in the Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
Mount Horeb is home to the Gonstead Clinic of Chiropractic, founded in 1939 by Dr. C.S. Gonstead. Gonstead developed the widely used Gonstead chiropractic technique for spinal adjustment. With the completion in 1964 of a building on Route 151, and the adjoining Karakahl Inn, it became a nationally recognized chiropractic center. It gradually declined in importance after the 1978 death of its founder, and the buildings are currently deteriorating and the target of a preservation effort.
Gonstead became a member of the chiropractic fraternity Delta Sigma Chi. Gonstead earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1923 and returned to Wisconsin. He first practiced with Dr. Olson, the man who inspired him to become a chiropractor, before establishing a practice in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. His younger brother Merton Gonstead (1902 – 1983) joined his practice in 1929 for a few years before starting his own practice. Clarence Gonstead remained a sole practitioner for the next twenty years.
In 1974, Gonstead sold his clinic and seminars to Alex and Doug Cox. Gonstead's inventory was later auctioned. His clinic continues operation under the ownership of the non-profit C.S. Gonstead Chiropractic Foundation.
Clarence Selmer Gonstead (July 23, 1898 – October 2, 1978) was a chiropractor and the creator of the Gonstead technique. He established a large chiropractic facility in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin.
In 1924, Gonstead married Elvira Meister (1901 – 1991). Gonstead died in 1978 at the age of 80. He was buried at Mount Horeb Union Cemetery in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin.
The Gonstead technique is chiropractic method that had been developed by Clarence Gonstead since 1923. The technique focuses on hands-on adjustment and is claimed to expand ""standard diversified technique"" by implementing additional instrumentation including X-rays, Gonstead Radiographic Parallel, a measuring device, and the development of Nervo-Scope, a device said to detect the level of neurophysiologic activity due to the existence of vertebral subluxation based on changes in skin temperature. Heat detector devices are unreliable and lack scientific evidence. The technique gained popularity in the 1960s. About 28.9% of patients have been treated with the Gonstead technique.
Gonstead's method of chiropractic practice was an extension of his training at the Palmer School of Chiropractic. While Gonstead was a student, school president B. J. Palmer began promoting the neurocalometer (NCM), an invention of chiropractor Dossa Dixon Evins (1886 – 1932). Gonstead assisted in various efforts to improve the quality of these two instruments. In the 1940s Gonstead became a consultant for Electronic Development Laboratories (EDL). EDL made the original Nervoscope, a competitor device to the NCM. Over the years, Gonstead helped the company define the device's sensitivity, parameters, and function. Gonstead also worked with various X-ray companies to optimize full-spine 14x36 X-ray exposure, primarily the use of split screens to account for varying patient density on the lateral film.
According to the American Chiropractic Association and the Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Gonstead technique is used by about 58% of chiropractors for approximately 25% of their patients.
Gonstead's first office was located above a bank building in downtown Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. In 1939, Gonstead built the first Gonstead Chiropractic Clinic (or second office) in downtown Mount Horeb. In 1964 he opened a second clinic just outside Mount Horeb which treated 300 to 400 patients per day. It was designed by John Steinmann. The next year, 1965, a motel (Karakahl Country Inn) was constructed next to the clinic to accommodate out-of-town patients and chiropractors attending his seminar.
On November 6, 1913, B.J. Palmer was initiated into the brotherhood of Delta Sigma Chi. Five years later Brother Palmer was unanimously elected the honorary president of the fraternity. Clarence Gonstead was also a member.
After pre-clinical courses, all students study Logan Basic Technique and its biomechanical foundation, the Logan System of Body Mechanics, and Diversified Technique. Students can also choose from eleven elective techniques: Activator Methods, Active Release Technique (ART), Applied Kinesiology, Flexion-Distraction (COX), Gonstead System, Graston Technique, Pro-Adjustor, Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), Soft Tissue, Thompson, Upper Cervical Specific.
A 2010 study describing Belgium chiropractors and their patients found chiropractors in Belgium mostly focus on neuromusculoskeletal complaints in adult patients, with emphasis on the spine. The diversified technique is the most often applied technique at 93%, followed by the Activator mechanical-assisted technique at 41%. A 2009 study assessing chiropractic students giving or receiving spinal manipulations while attending a U.S. chiropractic college found Diversified, Gonstead, and upper cervical manipulations are frequently used methods.
According to the American Chiropractic Association the most frequently used techniques by chiropractors are Diversified technique 95.9%, Extremity manipulating/adjusting 95.5%, Activator Methods 62.8%, Gonstead technique 58.5%, Cox Flexion/Distraction 58.0%, Thompson 55.9%, Sacro Occipital Technique [SOT] 41.3%, Applied Kinesiology 43.2%, NIMMO/Receptor Tonus 40.0%, Cranial 37.3%, Manipulative/Adjustive Instruments 34.5%, Palmer upper cervical [HIO] 28.8%, Logan Basic 28.7%, Meric 19.9%, and Pierce-Stillwagon 17.1%. Koren Specific Technique (KST) is a chiropractic technique was created around 2004. There are about 200 chiropractic technique, but there is a mostly overlap between them, and many techniques involve slight changes of other techniques.
There are several schools of chiropractic adjustive techniques, although most chiropractors mix techniques from several schools. The following adjustive procedures were received by more than 10% of patients of licensed U.S. chiropractors in a 2003 survey. Diversified technique (full-spine manipulation, employing various techniques), extremity adjusting, Activator technique (which uses a spring-loaded tool to deliver precise adjustments to the spine), Thompson Technique (which relies on a drop table and detailed procedural protocols), Gonstead (which emphasizes evaluating the spine along with specific adjustment that avoids rotational vectors), Cox/flexion-distraction (a gentle, low-force adjusting procedure which mixes chiropractic with osteopathic principles and utilizes specialized adjusting tables with movable parts), adjustive instrument, Sacro-Occipital Technique (which models the spine as a torsion bar), Nimmo Receptor-Tonus Technique, applied kinesiology (which emphasises "muscle testing" as a diagnostic tool), and cranial. Chiropractic biophysics technique uses inverse functions of rotations during spinal manipulation. Koren Specific Technique (KST) may use their hands, or they may use an electric device known as an "ArthroStim" for assessment and spinal manipulations. Insurers in the US and UK that cover other chiropractic techniques exclude KST from coverage because they consider it to be "experimental and investigational." Medicine-assisted manipulation, such as manipulation under anesthesia, involves sedation or local anesthetic and is done by a team that includes an anesthesiologist; a 2008 systematic review did not find enough evidence to make recommendations about its use for chronic low back pain.
