The Gonstead Clinic Celebration: More than Historical

It is true that the 50th Celebration of the Gonstead Clinic is a historical event.  Who can deny the importance of Clarence Gonstead and the monument to chiropractic that is the Gonstead Clinic? The size and style of this building set it apart from the many impressive chiropractic clinics across the country.  But there is far more to celebrate than Clarence Gonstead or the Gonstead Clinic.

There is the academic importance of the Gonstead Method!  A method that is taught in so many chiropractic institutions and in post graduate seminars that, according to Cooperstein’s 2003 article in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, over half the chiropractic profession make use of practices developed by C.S. Gonstead.  When one looks at the vast amount of hours that have been devoted to  teaching and learning the Gonstead Method, it is impossible not to come to  he understanding that this method has become a staple in the profession.

Because of its importance to the profession, the Gonstead Method should be recognized on many levels.  In this 50th  Celebration of the Clinic, where Dr. Gonstead practiced his art, let us not forget the contribution that was made to the academic advancement of the profession by him.

Please join us in celebrating this historic occasion!  Participants will be sharing personal stories about Dr. Gonstead as well as attending academic classes, reviewing technique, and renewing a lot of old friendships.  All classes and festivities will take place at the Gonstead Clinic in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, on Saturday and Sunday, October 11-12, 2014.

We look forward to seeing you at the Celebration!
