Unlock Your Body's Potential with Gonstead Chiropractic

Who is Dr. Clearance S. Gonstead?

Dr. Gonstead was a chiropractor who practiced in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, USA. He founded the Gonstead Clinic of Chiropractic in 1923 and gained a reputation for his unique and precise approach to chiropractic adjustments. After practicing traditional chiropractic methods for several years, Dr. Gonstead began to develop his own approach. He based his technique on the idea that a thorough understanding of spinal biomechanics and anatomy is crucial for effective chiropractic adjustments. He used X-rays and other diagnostic tools like the Nervoscope to assess spinal misalignments and deliver the most precise and gentle adjustments. Now thousands of chiropractors around the world use his technique.

Doctor Taking Notes

Static Palpation

Static palpation is a valuable tool in chiropractic analysis, and we are proud to use it at Life Force Chiropractic. Our skilled practitioners use this technique to carefully feel for any areas of swelling, hypertonic muscle, or changes in contour, tone, and texture. These signals help us to investigate further and identify any underlying subluxations. We take our time with each assessment to make sure we get the most accurate results, so you can feel confident that you're in good hands with us.



The Nervoscope is an essential tool that our chiropractors at Life Force Chiropractic use to detect and treat spinal misalignments. This instrument allows them to detect heat temperature changes caused by vertebral subluxations. This is a non-invasive and painless method that provides a clear picture of where you might have subluxations. It is used every visit to accurately diagnose and treat any spinal misalignments that may be present.


Motion Palpation

Motion palpation is an integral part of our chiropractic care at Life Force Chiropractic. Through this technique, we use our hands to feel for misalignments in the spine in order to make precise corrections. After using instrumentation with the Nervoscope, we will investigate the joint in question and use motion palpation to assess how it is misaligned. This allows us to make the necessary adjustments to realign the joint and restore function.



At Life Force Chiropractic, we believe in conducting a thorough analysis of your condition before proceeding with any treatment. During this phase, we will observe your gait to look for differences in the height of your ears, shoulders, and hips. This allows us to gather as much information as possible to ensure that we are correcting the right joint. We will also assess your posture to determine how it may be contributing to your condition.
