New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
Living Well Medical, a premiere physical rehabilitation and chiropractic facility in downtown NYC, is pleased to announce the addition of chiropractic treatments using The Gonstead System of biomechanical analysis. Provided by Dr. Jose Cortes, one of only three Gonstead-certified practitioners in NYC, The Gonstead System is a carefully constructed technique that uses five specific criteria to detect subluxations along the spine: visualization, instrumentation, static palpation, motion palpation, and x-ray analysis.
Style and technique are crucial when providing chiropractic care. As always, Living Well Medical is committed to providing its patients with the best care available and strives to include a variety of treatment protocols to suit every patient’s needs. The introduction of The Gonstead System at the hands of Dr. Cortes offers a great advantage for all chiropractic patients, particularly those who are not aware of their cause or source of pain, since this multifaceted diagnostic approach is able to uncover spinal and soft tissue dysfunction at a deeper level than other methods.
Gonstead-certified chiropractors utilize an exclusive approach when detecting and correcting spinal subluxations. The base of The Gonstead System lies in finding the presence of shifts to the body’s foundation, which is located at the pelvic level. As long as this structure, consisting of hip and lower back bones, is evenly balanced, spinal health is assured. However, any changes to the balance of the foundation can have devastating effects not only in the affected area, but all over the body.
The Gonstead System sees the body as a whole structure, similar to a building. When a building’s foundation is under stress, it is evident in cracks and other construction damages which can cause the building to collapse if not promptly repaired. The Gonstead System applies this same principle to the body’s foundation and begins by correcting damages at the pelvic level, which in turn will alleviate ensuing discomfort and pain elsewhere in the body.
Dr. Cortes specializes in The Gonstead System and provides adjustments to restore balance to the body’s foundation as well as the affected areas. As a result, patients will experience a progressive reduction of pain as well as an increase in comfort and function and restored mobility and flexibility. In turn, a rebalanced spine and pelvic foundation will provide the basis for ongoing long-term health.
