The Gonstead chiropractic method is a specialized form of treatment that uses exclusive adjustment techniques along with state-of-the-art technology to find, diagnose, and heal chronic pain conditions.
Are you looking for a proven pain relief therapy to recover from an injury caused by an auto accident, or sports injury? Do you suffer from chronic headaches, sciatica, lower back or neck pain?
If so, Gonstead chiropractic treatment is for you
The Gonstead system of chiropractic is widely recognized throughout the world as a proven and time-tested method for diagnosing and adjusting the spine.
Unlike other methods, there are no random manipulations applied to various bones or joints. The science behind this innovative form of treatment centers on the connection between your nervous system and body.
Gonstead chiropractors perform exclusive corrective adjustments to correct for misalignment that facilitate healing, relieve back pain, and promote overall health to treat chronic pain.
It’s a proven method to treat everything from common ailments such as lower back and neck pain, knee and shoulder problems, to more advanced cases like sciatica or scoliosis.
The Intero methodology has its roots in the teachings and practice of Dr. Clarence Gonstead (1898 - 1978). He was a chiropractor ahead of his time and brought chiropractic treatments from lesser-used alternative medicine to a valid and scientific form of therapy.
Expanding beyond Dr. Gonstead’s initial vision, we created our proven five-step system for launching our patients into optimal health and wellbeing.
It’s called the F.R.E.E.D. methodology, and involves five-core strategies, each corresponding to a letter:
At Intero, our Gonsted doctors provide care right away with a comprehensive five-step analysis of your health care history, treatments, and current symptoms. We call it a funnel because this diagnostic approach starts wide at the top and becomes more narrow as we pinpoint the cause of pain and dysfunction.
This five-step analysis, which we repeat on every visit includes:
1. X-ray: a full spine digital x-ray from the skull to the bottom of the pelvis.
2. Instrumentation: an infrared nerve evaluation and bilateral weight distribution and balance test.
3. Visualization: 30-point physical examination.
4. Palpation: Hands-on checks at pain points direct to skin (not over clothing).
5. Case history: Updated history and questionnaire to determine any new relevant data.
We identify the right tool to diagnose and provide relief, and strategize the correct order and delivery of the right intervention.
The body’s ability to heal itself is unparalleled. We develop a unique strategy for the individual’s body to begin the healing process.
We don’t chase the pain, we objectively evaluate the data to uncover and treat the source.
Each patient requires a unique approach to deal with their pain. We work directly with each patient to help them with a plan to change their lifestyle and to live pain free.
Having used this methodology on thousands of patients, we have seen excellent results. These patients were suffering from chronic pain, having seen every specialist they could manage, all to no avail.
Once these patients worked with our team and applied the FREED methodology, 90% reported health and pain improvements within weeks of our care.

"My own story started back in 2009 when my wife suffered a massive injury that left her disabled for over half a year. This form of chiropractic is what allowed her to walk again after a dozen failed experiences with doctors. I was so inspired by that experience that I gave up a career on Wall Street and have studied with the best of the best to do the same for others."

Intero changed my life. Sciatica - gone after one month. I went to them because of persistent lower back problems that I could no longer keep at bay by building my core and stretching. After just one month not only are my symptoms gone but I just feel good. I can stand, sit, and exercise without issues. They use a scientific approach to analyze your condition and tailor the therapy just for you. Plus they really care about their patients. Highly recommended. Life changing for me.
Peter K, Pleasanton CA
After chiropractic care under Dr. Hsieh, my menstrual and back cramps are much less intense and for a shorter duration of time. Chiropractic also helped with my sinus allergies and headaches that have plagued me for years. They're now greatly reduced!
I tell people that Dr. Jerry is a magician. Right after the first adjustment my pain was drastically reduced and each time I came with a sore back, the adjustments have been really helpful
I was born with scoliosis, and I wasn’t sure whether anything could really help with a condition with that I’d had for so many years. After just my first couple of visits, I started to feel relief from my back pain throughout the day.
