Specializing in caring for backs attached to kids and moms, Barton Chiropractic in Concord’s skilled staffers work to alleviate neck and lower-back pain with modern technology and the meticulous Gonstead technique. During a 60-minute massage, a therapist’s hands glide across the bodyverse, gently soothing away aches and kneading out knots shaped like a sixth-grade diorama of the solar system. Each muscle manipulation helps increase blood flow while de-stressing the mind and easing the pain of past injuries.
A consultation establishes the goals of the chiropractic session before the back doctor employs the Gonstead technique to analyze the posterior torso during an exam. The chiropractor roots out vertebral dislocations by assessing five key categories, beginning with a thorough visual inspection and use of a metal nervoscope, which glides down the spine and seeks out inflammation and nervous pressure through body heat. The trained spine straightener then feels for tenderness and shipwrecked blood vessels wedged between the ribs during a stationary palpitation test, followed by a motion palpitation test, which examines the spine at different angles and stances. Lastly, x-rays (if necessary) will snap pics of the full spine, including the lateral, cervical, and lumbar regions, to help expose joint weakness, misalignment, and the C-5 vertebra’s pageant-winning smile.
