What is the Orthospinology Procedure?
If we take the word Orthospinology and break it down it could be said that it is the study of restoring the spine to an upright balanced position or orthogonal position. The orthospinology procedure is an evidence-based approach to spinal care that is based upon engineering principles as researched and developed by John F. Grostic. It should be noted that the Orthospinology procedure has been around for over 60 years and its clinical validity is supported by over 100+ peer-reviewed indexed references!!
Dr. Grostic's work has allowed the upper cervical chiropractor the ability to quantify and assess the subluxation and its correction like never before.
The Orthospinology procedure is a series of steps that build on each other.
1. Precision x-ray machine alignment
2. Accurate patient placement for x-ray assessment
3. Meticulous x-ray analysis
4. Careful patient table placement
5. Precision spinal correction
6. Post spinal correction assessment
There are many details and intricacies that go into and build up to a precision spinal correction. It should be noted that Dr. Grostic's work has been an incredible advancement to the principle and practice of upper cervical chiropractic care.
