Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic-careAt Vertical Chiropractic in Durango Colorado, we represent the best of the old and the best of the new in corrective chiropractic care.  Chiropractic is a drug-free, physiologically compatible health care that allows the body to heal itself by allowing the nervous system to function better. When nerve interference is removed with gentle chiropractic adjustments, healthy cell metabolism, organ function, and mental and physical well-being are restored. According to the research, that means more energy, better movement, and a stronger immune system. More and more families are choosing chiropractic because no one is ever too young or too old to obtain a healthy nervous system for life.

Because we are steeped in the history and clinical excellence of the Gonstead Technique, our patients have gotten results where other medical and chiropractic systems have failed.  Most patients who come to our health center have experienced multiple visits at other chiropractic offices, physical therapists and medical doctors without gaining any permanent relief from pain.  Our method and specialty is not to temporarily relieve you of pain, but to permanently correct the structure of your spine.


Because chiropractic care directly addresses spinal health and the health of your nerve system, many of your body’s other systems are also affected, indirectly.  Your central nervous system – your brain and spinal cord – is your body’s master system. Every other organ, tissue, and cell receives instructions on when and how to do its job from the nerve system, via spinal nerves and smaller nerve branches.  Simply put, when your nerve system is not functioning properly your body as a whole will not function properly.  You may have pain.  You may have symptoms of specific diseases.  It is important to address these symptoms.  More importantly, it is critical to address possible causes that lie within the nerve system.  A healthy nervous system helps ensure good health in your gastrointestinal, cardiopulmonary, endocrine systems, and other systems as well.

Unlike regular chiropractic that mainly focus on immediate pain relief, Gonstead Chiropractic goes one step further to also correct the source of the problem. That’s why most patients under our care not only report relief from pain and discomfort, but as their posture begins to align, they notice other conditions clearing up as well.[one_third]
