Named after its developer, Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. His “foundation principle” explains how a vertebral subluxation complex pattern in one area of the spine can produce compensatory changes in another.
After studying your health history, we conduct a complete examination. This generally includes full spine X-rays and precise analysis. Using a small heat-sensing instrument, vertebral subluxation complex patterns are revealed by slight differences in temperature. Finally, we use our fingertips to “palpate” or feel the location of individual bones and how they may differ from their normal position.
With a complete picture of your spine it’s time to make the needed corrections.
To adjust your lower spine and pelvis, we’ll have you lie on your side. Vertebral Subluxation Complexes in the middle back are corrected as you assume a comfortable kneeling position. When you are seated, we can restore the integrity of your spine without twisting or rotating your neck.
Sometimes you’ll hear a slight “popping” sound that we call cavitation. Sometimes you won’t. Either way, better health is on the way!
The Gonstead Technique is acknowledged as one of the safest systems of evaluating and caring for the spine.
I have been seeing Dr. Cyr for a couple of years now am very happy with my visits. He has really helped me with my neck pain and overall well-being.

I was having constant headaches all the time. They were beginning to take over my daily life. After seeing Dr. Cyr they have completely gone away!! Highly recommended!!
I left my first apt, feeling so much better than when I came in! I'm 6 months pregnant so I was nervous but Dr. Cyr was great!
Dr. Cyr is an extraordinary chiropractor who provides excellent care to all patients. He has also been voted "Best Of The Best" of Rutland, VT for over 20 years. Many thanks Doctor!
Dr.Cyr has made a huge difference in how I feel... so much better. I am not in pain. If I could give 10 stars, I would. Thank you so much.
Thank you Dr. Cyr! I am smiling again. I am not in pain. I have suffered with chronic and acute sciatic. for awhile now. I have tried physical therapy and while I did get some relief, the pain and discomfort returned. I just recently had four visits with Dr. Cyr and I am thrilled with the results.
