Chiropractor Oshkosh WI
Welcome to Anderson Chiropractic of Oshkosh. When it comes to helping you, Oshkosh chiropractor Dr. Anderson relies on his 33 years of experience with thousands of successful results. In addition to his training at Palmer Chiropractic College, Dr. Anderson spent 10 years learning the Gonstead Method of Chiropractic directly from Dr. J. Larry Troxell, a master chiropractor and favorite student of the chiropractic genius Dr. Clarence Gonstead.
Dr. Anderson moved up from student intern to exam doctor and then worked as an apprentice chiropractor to Dr. Troxell for 3 years before finally establishing his own practice in Oshkosh, WI 30 years ago.
In addition, Dr. Anderson helps with teaching student doctors chiropractic at the Gonstead Methodology Seminars at Dr. Gonstead's Clinic in Mount Horeb, WI every year.
What You Can Expect When You Visit Our Office
Medical history & Physical Examination: Dr. Anderson will use this time to get to know you and determine if chiropractic care benefit you. He will conduct a thorough analysis using several criteria to identify the specific pain generators in your spine.
Visualization: Visualization is a way to cross-reference all the other findings. Dr. Anderson 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 of Chiropractic is the Nervoscope. The Nervoscope detects uneven temperature distributions along the spine which are indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure. Dr. Anderson will guide the Nervoscope down the length of your back. This 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. Dr. Anderson will feel for the presence of swelling, tenderness, and any abnormal texture or spasms 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 Dr. Anderson to determine how easy or difficult each segment in your spine moves in different directions.
FULL SPINE RADIOGRAPHS
X-Ray films enable Dr. Anderson to visualize the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in evaluating posture, joint and disc integrity, vertebral misalignment and ruling out any pathology, 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. Why standing?
Most medical x-rays are taken when you are laying down. This is like looking at a flat tire when the car is up on the jack. Sure looks different when the weight is on the tire. The only way to understand the true stress factors affecting your spine is to look at it in a weight-bearing position.
