Chiropractic techniques we use:
The legendary Dr. C. S. Gonstead “Miracle Man” of the Chiropractic profession. His Gonstead technique became the standard of chiropractic treatments everywhere. He was educated in mechanical engineering, Dr.Gonstead viewed the spine as a complicated engineering equation. He studied it every day to master a system to repair it. His studies of hundreds of spinal cases, his conversations with medical colleagues, and the innate understanding of the spine, allowed him to identify and correct subluxations no one else could.
Following in the steps of Dr. Gonstead, Fairfax Chiropractic Center has mastered his methods which give tremndous value to the people of Fairfax.
The Gonstead System has an exact approach to each segment in a spinal column. The in depth overview shows instrumentation, motion palpation, digital palpation, visualization, x-ray followed by adjustments in the spine by our professionals at Fairfax Chiropractic Center!
