Clarence GonsteadClarence Gonstead & Gonstead Methodology

Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead practiced chiropractic from 1923 until 1978. He became interested in chiropractic after chiropractic adjustments helped him overcome a painful, crippling episode of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Dr. Gonstead graduated from one of the world’s first chiropractic schools, Palmer College of Chiropractic, in 1923. Soon after, he started developing the most thorough, comprehensive, and specific form of chiropractic for the analysis and correction of vertebral subluxations (misaligned spinal segments). Using his background in mechanical engineering and extensive hours spent studying cadaver spines, he developed a unique approach to applying chiropractic care.

Dr. Gonstead’s application brought him both national and international acclaim, and he was known as a “chiropractor’s chiropractor.” For decades, thousands of patients traveled from all over the world to his Mt. Horeb, WI clinic to consult with him for problems associated with a variety of health issues. The sickest of the sick found health through the Gonstead Method of chiropractic care.

Having seen the great results achieved by Dr. Gonstead’s work, other chiropractors requested that he teach them his unique approach. Since then, the Gonstead Method has been the “gold standard” in chiropractic care.

Dr. Gonstead’s brilliant mind and lifelong experience of treating over one million patients enabled him to develop and refine his technique, which is now taught and practiced by doctors of chiropractic all over the world.
