About Us | The Goodman Method of Chiropractic

About Us

This unique approach to chiropractic is practiced exclusively by Dr. Steven Goodman and his son, Dr. John Goodman. Please take a few moments to learn about the men behind the method.

The Problem

An “upper cervical misalignment” is when your head is displaced from its support system, the C1 atlas and C2 axis vertebrae. This misalignment puts pressure on the brain and spinal cord causing distress and imbalances throughout your entire body. Spinal stability is compromised, which affects disc integrity, nerve transmission, and muscle tone. Also directly affected is circulation, respiration, energy levels, and sleep quality.

A primary reason people continue to suffer from chronic spine conditions is because the underlying issue remains untreated. Less than 1% of chiropractors focus exclusively on this vital area of the spine. Medical doctors and therapists are also unaware of this debilitating misalignment.

The Solution

The Goodman Method is an extremely effective way to treat and resolve conditions of the spine. Instead of trying to figure out which spinal bones may be “subluxated” or “misaligned”, we know that they are only out of alignment to compensate for the underlying issue, the misaligned head!

When the head and upper neck are in proper alignment, the entire spine is too! This spectacular phenomenon takes place the whole way down the spine and into the pelvis and sacrum. The attached muscles, nerves, discs, and ligaments will finally have a chance to relax, allowing you to heal.

Establishing perfect alignment of the head is not an easy task, so Dr. Steven Goodman invented an instrument called the 3G (named after himself, and his mentors- Dr. Ralph Gregory and Dr. John Grostic) to aid in the treatment process. The instrument allows us to make highly specific treatments.
