Chiropractor - Educator

Relaxation - Balance - Timing


What is Different?

Chiropractic technique is traditionally taught as a static "set-up" and that the patient should be at "tension" when they are getting adjusted.  We change the paradigm to Relaxation, Balance and Timing, so that when a patient gets adjusted it feels more like a "warm knife in butter"!

A unique series of "Exercises" replace the "set-up" model and attendees leave with a variety of "Drills" that can be used to develop their skills.

Why 5 Hour Courses?

5 hour blocks of training and instruction allow a focus and attention on a given topic and create a bridge from learning too much new information all at once (so you don't know where to start) to being able to apply what you've learned immediately into your skills development and practice.


The Academy Courses

The Gonstead Adjusting Academy consists of a series of 5 hour courses, and totals a

50 hour program:       


1. Gonstead Concepts & Adjusting Principles (5 hours)

2. The Cervicals parts 1 & 2 (10 hours)

3. The Lumbars parts 1 & 2 (10 hours)

4. The Pelvis parts 1 & 2 (10 hours)

5. Knee Chest (5 hours)

6. Find it so you can Fix it (5 hours)

7. Advanced Case Management (5 hours)

What is Different?

Drills for Skills


Dynamic Learning thru Exercises

Examine your patient thoroughly.  Make a competent diagnosis.

Be sure your adjustment matches

your diagnosis.
