SETH BARR D.C.
Until now, you may have thought that all chiropractors “do the same thing” and “adjust the same way”. The fact is, it just isn’t so! But you need to know why! Dr. Seth Barr provides the finest quality care through proven and sound chiropractic techniques. Dr. Barr is a “Gonstead Chiropractor”!
The Gonstead Chiropractor goes beyond what many chiropractors consider a spinal assessment by conducting a thorough analysis of your spine using five criteria to detect the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex.
Visualization – Visualization is a way to cross reference all the other findings. Your chiropractor is an expert in looking for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems.
Instrumentation – The instrument of choice in the Gonstead System is the Nervoscope. The Nervoscope detects uneven distributions of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure. This instrument is guided 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 edema), 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. This enables the chiropractor to determine how easily or difficult each segment in your spine moves in different directions.
X-Ray Analysis – x-ray films enable your doctor to visualize the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in evaluating posture, joint and disc integrity, vertebral misalignments and ruling out any pathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s condition. These full-spine radiographs are taken in the standing, weight-bearing position to fully substantiate the examination findings.
After a complete analysis, the Gonstead chiropractor is ready to deliver any necessary adjustments. The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible, addressing only the problem areas (areas of subluxation). Great care is taken to ensure a bio-mechanically correct position and precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible. It is the goal of your Gonstead doctor to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.
Dr. Seth was fortunate to have the opportunity to do his preceptorship under Gonstead Seminar extremity instructor Dr. Mark Werking. There Dr. Seth was able to expand his knowledge and experience especially in the evaluation and care for extremity conditions and injuries.
Dr. Seth has a genuine concern for your well-being! He not only provides care for the patient with symptoms, but also for the patient wanting to achieve optimum health by having their body function at its maximum potential. Whether you've "been everywhere" and gotten no results, or you are looking for an even higher quality of life, your chiropractor should be Forward Chiropractic.
