Quality Chiropractic is an art form that only comes with many years of experience. You may go to a Doctor of Chiropractic and get a substandard adjustment that causes you MORE pain or go to one who really knows how to perform an accurate and specific adjustment. We have found more of the former unfortunately with patients often coming into our Center and have had a bad experience. At SPINE and JOINT INSTITUTE of MILWAUKEE, our Chiropractors are chosen because their different technique qualities combined with the others, allow the clinic an atmosphere of quality Chiropractic care overall. Good experienced patient management and care ALONG WITH good Chiropractic adjusting, is what is most important and is what allows us to help more people with their conditions but remember that this is only one facet of what we do. Our clinic Director, Dr. Kelly G. Worth, Chiropractic Neurologist, has been trained in one of the most advanced forms of Chiropractic adjusting and studied under many mentors back some 20(+) years ago, who were the best in the field of Chiropractic. This allowed Dr. Kelly to become much more proficient in overall skeletal biomechanics as well as in a technique called GONSTEAD. Gonstead adjusting was originally formed by Clarence Gonstead years and years ago who measured specific angles and lines of mensuration from Full Spine X-Rays and adjusted some thousands and thousands of patients SPECIFIC from the lines of measure from the Full Spine films. He would not only adjust fixated areas where pain was remarkable to the patient, he would actually get neurological change patterns with the deeper spinal adjustments allowing the patient to become pain free with proper correction of their spines much, much quicker, than the lighter and more tender adjustments. He has helped thousands of patients over the years and so has now Dr. Kelly with his Gonstead and Modified Diversified Techniques. Dr Kelly has mastered this art form and continues to assist 100?s of people in the community. The technique is painless and Dr. Kelly only uses Gonstead adjusting when necessary and knows several technique types along with the other clinical Chiropractors at SJIR. Each patient is tailor suited for their needs and to which Chiropractic adjustment they will be in need of. With a HIGH RESOLUTION DIGITAL X-RAY system in place at our office that is FULL SPINE capable, we can now properly take standing gravity full spine films allowing us to actually really capture what is going on with your spine while you are in a standard standing position instead of lying down on a table. After careful AP and LAT studies are performed, we can then measure the angles of each curve and joint and look at each and every vertebra, where disc wedging is, inflammation around facet joints, lateral angles of the spine and so on. You can then be placed on a 12 week program and x-rays retaken, if desired, and we should be able to see changes in your spine from the protocols set forth for your management of care. Our office is not like any other office in all of Wisconsin and we offer you the opportunity to stop by and take a tour or come in for a free consultation any time, M-F.
