  • Chiropractic care offers non-invasive and drug free benefits for expecting mothers before, during and after the many changes of pregnancy. Changes to the spine and pelvis can lead to back pain, neck and shoulder pain, and headaches. Other changes during pregnancy cause increased stress, fatigue, immune and digestive issues, and increased anxiety. Correcting spinal misalignments can help improve posture, relieve pressure on the spine and nerves, and reduce tension and pain. Chiropractic care leads to less stress, more energy,and healthy immune and digestive function. You may also experience shorter labor times with less intervention, improved recovery from labor and delivery. Healthy pregnancies and deliveries lead to healthy babies.

  • From birth trauma to everyday bumps and falls, chiropractic for kids offers natural drug-free solutions to keep your children developing at their true full potential. Common conditions cared for naturally are colic, reflux, constipation, nursing and digestive issues; ear, sinus and respiratory infections; autism, ADHD, anxiety & sensory processing disorder; asthma, allergies, and other immune challenges. The benefits of chiropractic care can include improvement in immune and digestive function, sleep, nursing in infants, less illness & infections, improved behavior, better concentration & mood; and improved connection and perception of their environment.

  • Everything from sporting injuries, car accidents or sitting all day for work can cause misalignment of the spine and stress to the nervous system. The misalignments of the neck can cause forward head posture that often leads to neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and carpel tunnel. Misalignments in the mid back can cause breathing difficulties and digestive troubles. Lower back misalignments can cause things like sciatica, knee pain, digestive trouble and affect the reproductive organs. Whether you are currently experiencing a symptom or you just want to be able to live and perform at your full potential, it is important to have your spine and nervous system evaluated. Just like a cavity can go undetected, spinal misalignments can and often do occur for many years before they produce symptoms.

Chiropractic there are hundreds of different chiropractic techniques practiced all over the world. Of these techniques one of the most well known and respected is the Gonstead System of Chiropractic. This is the technique that we utilize in our Encinitas Chiropractic office. Gonstead Chiropractic is named after Dr. Clarance S. Gonstead (1898-1978). Dr Gonstead, previous to becoming a Chiropractor, had worked in the field of engineering. This background gave him a unique perspective when studying and analyzing the human frame. Along with his unparalleled work ethic, desire to constantly improve, and understanding of spinal biomechanics in relation to the nervous system, led to the development of the most scientific and biomechanically sound chiropractic technique in the world. Gonstead Chiropractic has the most objective and thorough patient evaluation found in chiropractic. There are five criteria that are utilized to evaluate every patient on every visit. The five criteria are visualization, instrumentation, static palpation, motion palpation, and x-ray analysis.

In Gonstead Chiropractic each and every patient is given a unique and specific adjustment to meet their unique individual needs. The Gonstead specific adjustment is performed without introducing rotation or twisting of the spine and soft tissues which are known to potentially lead to injury. The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible, addressing only the problem areas. Great care is taken to ensure a bio-mechanically correct position and precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible. It is the goal of your Gonstead doctor to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.
