The Gonstead Method
What is Gonstead?
The Gonstead method, also know as the Gonstead technique, is the gold standard in “hands on” chiropractic care developed by Clarence S. Gonstead. Dr. Gonstead’s interest in human body mechanics continued to motivate him to perfect his system over his fifty years of work. He found there was no substitute or better method for analyzing or correcting spinal misalignments than with a pair of skilled chiropractic hands, complimented with modern diagnostic techniques.
The Gonstead system has only one purpose, and it is the finding and correction of a spinal subluxation, helping you get rid of whatever ailments or “dis-ease” you are experiencing. Only by finding the root cause of any problem can we resolve it. With over 300 hours of conference training on the Gonstead Chiropractic Technique combined, Dr. Steinarsson and Dr. Dagnyjarson practice the Gonstead Method exclusively. They are the only Gonstead Chiropractors in the Jupiter area and two of only a handful in the state of Florida. Dr. Steinarsson and Dr. Dagnyjarson are able to feel exactly where subluxations are located, confirm their findings with weight bearing full spine, digital X-rays, apply the appropriate amount of gentle force, and actually feel the movement of the vertebrae or joint. Adjustments are very specific and adjusted to meet your individual needs.
“Our body has the innate ability to heal itself from within when the spine is properly aligned, without any nerve interference from the brain and spinal cord, through the spinal nerves, to every gland, muscle, organ and cell in the body. The nervous system controls every single function in your body.”
Six Criteria for Analysis:
X-rays– Essential full-spine digital x-rays of the spine are used to provide an accurate postural analysis, showing problems other than chief complaints. We specifically analyze these x-rays to be used at each visit.
Motion Palpation – This “hands on” technique precisely pinpoints problematic areas and is use to determine fixations or “stuck joints” and their range of motion.
Static Palpation – Using light touch to identify chronic versus acute areas as well as minute changes in the tissue and muscles.
Instrumentation – A bilateral Nervoscope measures temperature along the spine to point out areas of inflammation and nerve pressure. It is used each visit to allow us to focus on the true problems rather than treating symptoms.
Visualization – A visual analysis of the body formation, posture, structure and gait.
Case Management – We use a proven system that specializes in finding the underlying cause to develop a road map for corrective care and to maintain both structure and function of the spine and nervous system.

Dr. A and Dr. G are amazing and truly caring people!
I wasn’t able to walk and passed out because I was in so much pain due to a herniated disc that was hitting the spinal nerve. Within a week, under Dr. Andris’s care and expertise I now have no pain and I am on my way to recovery. I can not thank Dr. A enough for his help, he saw me twice a day, even over the weekend when there are no office hours. I look forward to the progress I will continue to make and I will continue to go see Dr. A! If you are in need of a chiropractor, seriously look no further, give them a try and you will not be disappointed.

I’ve been seeing Dr for a little over 2 years now and he has changed my life.
As an athlete, I am constantly needing some workout recovery and I always feel 10x better instantly as I leave. I’ve also pulled my back, had pinched nerves to where I couldn’t move at all and within just 2 weeks of me seeing him 3x a week, my body was relieved and the pain was almost gone. insane. Now I just go for maintenance and take care of my body! Him and his wife are such a nice couple and very respectful with there work! Hands down recommend Dr G to anyone.
