‘Hands on’ healthcare

Gonstead Chiropractic

Chiropractors are the spinal care experts. We diagnose, treat and prevent mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. We aim to minimise the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and your health.

At My Back Relief Clinic we utilise the Gonstead Technique.

The goal of a Gonstead practitioner is to get you to reach your health goals as fast as possible. Therefore, we will often use every tool available to help us i.e x-rays, nervoscope, palpations, orthopaedic tests and neurological tests, in order to diagnose your health complaint with more certainty.

Your Treatment

You can expect us to focus our treatment efforts on specific areas of your spine that actually need treating.

We don’t do 5+ adjustments. Instead, we take great care in being as specific as possible, treating only the areas of your body that are causing the problems.

Your treatment plan will be clinically justified

An overview

What’s Involved?

Going to a Gonstead practitioner means that you will have a thorough consultation every visit. This often includes:

Health History

We will take a thorough history of your initial presenting complaint and this will include your overall health and medical history. A full chiropractic checkup follows.


Dr. Paula Basilio (Chiropractor) is well placed in looking for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems.


The instrument often used in the Gonstead System is the Nervoscope. The Nervoscope detects uneven distributions of heat along the spine which may be indicative of inflammation. This instrument runs down the length of your back and feels like two fingers gliding down each 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 oedema), tenderness and any abnormal 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 various angles.

X-Ray Analysis

Taken when clinically indicated, X-rays are taken. This will enable Dr. Paula (Chiropractor) to visualise the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in ruling out any pathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to your condition.

Gonstead is a Combined Approach

Gonstead practitioners will also tend to integrate any extra appropriate Othopeadic and Chiropractic tests.

When all this information is combined, we will let you know if your health situation is a Chiropractic case. That’s the Gonstead difference: you’ll receive a treatment plan, tailored to your needs. If it is not, a referral to the appropriate health provider will be given.

What does this all mean for You, the Patient?

You can feel confident that going to a Gonstead Chiropractor you will receive a treatment plan, customised to your individual needs.

Your Treatment

As for the treatment, Gonstead chiropractors aim only to focus on treating specific areas of your spine that actually need treating. The spine is a complicated and sometimes delicate structure. It consists of joints, nerves, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels, which treated incorrectly can do long-term damage.

Because of this, Gonstead practitioners never aim rattle the whole spine with 5+ adjustments. Instead they take great care in being as specific as possible, treating only the areas of your body that are causing the problems.

At My Back Relief Clinic, we treat you with this same great care and only recommend treatment plans to you that are clinically justified.
