Dr Luke commonly uses this technique for patients suffering from slipped (herniated) discs. Many patients with whiplash, headaches, and lower back pain have also experienced speedy pain relief with this technique. The reason it is so effective is because a Gonstead Doctor has to follow a precise system of analysis, including X-rays, static and motion palpation, instrumentation, before finally performing the specific adjustment to the mechanically faulty segment.
The adjustment with this technique uses very little rotation or twisting, which makes it very gentle, safe, comfortable, and it achieves lasting results in a short time.
The Gonstead system is a complete system of analysis and adjusting. It is the most efficient slipped disc treatment.
