Kasey specializes in Gonstead and Cox techniques, and is certified in
acupuncture. The Gonstead technique is a system used to analyze and care
for the spine. It is a gentle, effective technique that is specific,
accurate and precise in evaluating and adjusting the spine.
great part of Gonstead's technique is in understanding the connection
that exists between the brain and other parts including the nervous
system. Signals pass from the brain and all the organs and tissues of
the body on "electric wires" called nerves. These nerves pass down from
the brain to the spinal column or the back bone, and exit between the
spinal bones at 24 levels from the base of the skull to the tailbone,
controlling all bodily functions. If the spaces between the spinal bones
should become narrowed or cut off due to misalignment or "kink" in your
backbone. This is called a subluxation, and the nerve signal is
interrupted or reduced at that level of the spine. This causes a short
circuit in the signal, and this in turn causes a loss of function or
degeneration in the specific muscle or organ. The Gonstead Chiropractic
approach is to locate these misalignments in the spinal column, adjust
the subluxated vertebra and eliminate the nerve pressure, thus restoring
health to the patient.
Cox technique is used by physicians around the world to treat low back
and leg pain, neck and arm pain as well as other spinal pain conditions.
It continues to evolve as a research supported, physician tested, school
taught chiropractic manipulation adjustment protocol. It is a marriage
of osteopathic and chiropractic manipulation principles. Cox is an
accepted and widely used form of spinal manipulation.
