Default Gonstead method

Has anyone tried the Gonstead method for chiro care? I am going to try this starting tomorrow. The Doc stated that he has treated patients with TOS in the past with good results.

My chiro was Gonstead trained, plus he had additional knowledge, skills, techniques & used pain/discomfort relieving PT modalities as needed.
(Ultrasound, low level laser, IF stim, manual trigger point release.)

It was a very positive help for me.
He also is a long time chiropractor and very experienced, with a gentle technique. No fast grabbing and popping ever- always located the precise place and took time to makes sure before the adjustment..

But just like anything, there can be good practitioners and not so good...it's not always the title or label or technique - it is the person themselves that matters the most.
And that's what each of us has to assess and decide for ourselves.

Thanks Jomar, I seen him today for xrays and just exam. Tomorrow first adjustment and he said it is very gentle technique and precise locations. He said after initial exam that the spine looked good, but a lot of muscle spasms in neck and back.

I'll be interested to hear more about this. The description "the spine looked good, but a lot of muscle spasms in neck and back" describes me.

Also, I forgot to ask: What attracted you to the Gonstead method? Or is it that you sought out a chiro and that is what he practices.

Thanks.
