Gonstead Chiropractic

Highly trained Gonstead Chiropractors in Brisbane whose expertise is getting to the root cause of your health problem.

Don't want to put up with the pain any longer?

Our New Farm Chiropractic Brisbane based practitioners pride themselves on offering a service that you understand and fits with your needs and health goals. Our Chiropractors practice the Gonstead method of Chiropractic that individualises your care to ensure you get the best outcomes.

A Chiropractor offers their patient a drug and surgery free option to managing acute, subacute and chronic pain and discomfort. This low risk approach to holistic healthcare is for people of all ages searching for help to fix the root cause of their health issues.

Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy of treating health problems via the musculoskeletal system, with the unique approach of looking for the cause of health issues, not just the treatment of symptoms. A Chiropractor examines the spine and nervous system with a detailed “hands on” assessment of the vertebral column and its contiguous structures for the diagnosis of joint misalignment (known in the profession as a subluxation).
Chiropractors are highly trained health care professionals with the skills to apply their methodology of treatment to the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system to relieve the pressure put on the nervous system to allow the patient’s body to heal itself.

Less is more with a good Chiropractor

From our central Brisbane location, New Farm Chiropractic specialises in the Gonstead approach to Chiropractic treatment. The goal of the Gonstead practitioner is to “do the least to achieve the most” for each patient. The Gonstead Chiropractor is skilled in a precise method of spinal analysis and treatment to achieve these outcomes. The Gonstead Method of Chiropractic was developed in the USA by Clarence S. Gonstead who graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1923.

Gonstead Chiropractic Method

The sitting neck adjustment position is demonstrated here, a technique unique to the Gonstead Method.

The Gonstead Method focuses on being as specific as possible with the examination and treatment of subluxation by a Chiropractor. The examination carried out by a Chiropractor includes taking a detailed history, instrumentation, static and motion palpation, neurological testing and when necessary, full spine x-rays in the standing, weight bearing position.For more information on how our Chiropractors can help with your health needs, call our Brisbane offices on 07 3254 3011.

Sharing the benefits of Chiropractic

Our principal Chiropractor David Leach travels to remote Fiji from Brisbane to provide a free Chiropractic service to the Savusavu community – who would otherwise have no access to a Chiropractor. Thanks goes to the Naqaqa Giving Foundation and the Savusavu Community Foundation for helping Brisbane share their expert Chiropractor.

Common Conditions
Lower back pain
Low back pain can range from being a minor intermittent issue to one of debilitating significance. Patients often describe pain as being a dull ache in the lower back, but as symptoms become more severe pain can be unrelenting and radiate or refer. This is usually the result of increasing inflammation levels at the site of injury in the case of mechanical low back pain. Acute muscle spasms may also be associated as the body tries to splint the damage.
Neck pain
Neck pain can be a dull ache, or the feeling of spasms and sharp pains around the neck muscles (especially when moving the neck). It can also cause discomfort while laying down, pins and needles or numbness down one/both arms.
Bulging Disc
Patients often present with a bulging disc that can be seen on CT or MRI scans. Disc lesions are a major cause of back pain, and can be the manifestation of long term problems. A specific approach to assessment and treatment can give great results. The spinal surgeons we co-refer with endorse our conservative approach before a patient considers surgery.
