Visualization is a way to cross reference all the other findings. Your chiropractor is anexpert in looking for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems.


The instrument of choice in the Gonstead System is the Nervoscope. The Nervoscopedetects uneven distributions of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nervepressure. This instrument is guided down the length of your back and feels like two fingers gliding downeach side of your spine.

Static Palpation

This is simply the process of feeling (or palpating) your spine in a stationary (or static)position. Your chiropractor will feel for the presence of swelling (or edema), tenderness and anyabnormal texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues of your back.

Motion Palpation

This process involves feeling the spine while moving and bending it at variousangles. This enables the chiropractor to determine how easily or difficult each segment in your spinemoves in different directions.

X-Ray Analysis

X-ray films enable your doctor to visualize the entire structure of your spine. This ishelpful in evaluating posture, joint and disc integrity, vertebral misalignments and ruling out anypathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s condition. Thesefull-spine radiographs are taken in the standing, weight-bearing position to fully substantiate theexamination findings.
