The Gonstead Difference

Gonstead Chiropractic can help with symptoms like neck pain, back pain, sciatica pain, or migraines and headaches. If you have low back pain or some visceral condition like asthma or carpel tunnel, your Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad can help. Gonstead chiropractors work on correcting the cause of symptoms and can provide corrective chiropractic care for structural spinal damage, not merely providing temporary relief of symptoms. The Gonstead chiropractic system as taught by Dr. Gohl is the most structurally and bio-mechanically specific. It produces measurable results with full-spine X-rays and before and after symptom comparisons. Our Gonstead Chiropractic clinic in Carlsbad has helped thousands of patients for over 10 years with the relief and the corrective chiropractic care they have been seeking.

A Chiropractic Journey

In 2004, Dr. Kametz had the good fortune of meeting and working side by side with Gonstead chiropractic legend Dr. Richard A. Gohl. Many Gonstead chiropractors believe he is the greatest chiropractor to live. Over the next eight years, Dr. Kametz devoted his time and resources to train and practice with Dr. Gohl. He died in 2012 after 60 years in active practice. Our practice and clinic is named in honor of Dr. Gohl and the work he devoted his entire life to.

Where To Find Gohl Clinic

I'm a 67 year old male patient that has had severe back, hip pain along with sciatic nerve pain. I also started to suffer from Neuropathy in my feet. I was very depressed with a negative outlook on life because of the pain and becoming 100% restricted to a wheelchair.I'm overweight, and have high blood pressure (even with high blood pressure medication taken twice a day. My blood pressure is in the red zone)I would like to share my experience with the Gohl Clinic of Chiropractic.Prior to Gohl Chiropractors, this year I walk with a cane and started using a wheelchair about 60% of the time.I was unable to lift my right leg, could not get in/out the car. My wife had to help me in and out of the bed.all we would do is stay in our home. Life was not good.I spent months going to the Doctors and ended up twice in the hospital. After the last hospital stay (4days) the medical Dr specialists all wanted me to try Physical Therapy and medication. The meds would help occasionally with the pain, and Physical Therapy gave a temporary relieve.Why a Chiropractor? I was very reserved about seeing one. I was worried they would really mess me up. Then a friend recommended Gohl Chiropractic. There are many Chiropractors close to my home, Gohl Chiropractic was 12 miles away. But with the recommendations I choose them. My wife and I meet with them and they explain their approach to Chiropractic versus other Chiropractors.Wow did I make the right decision.After my first visit Gohl Chiropractic game up with a game plan. They fully explained what they were going to do and what I could expect. This has took a short period of time, but after each visit I have felt the positive difference .What are the differences?1. I walk with no cane. I donated my wheelchair.2. Pain in the back, hip and sciatic nerve are almost non existent.3. Neuropathy is gone 100%4. Sleep better at night.5. I have stopped taking gurd medication.6. BLOOD Pressure has gone from being dangerous red high to yellow zones and some days it's in the green zone.7. No depression- Life is great again.8. No more setting around the house. Leaving today for a 3 week vacation with no cane! Back riding a bicycle and plan on golfing next month.(Walking the course).My wife and I thank Gohl Chiropractic for giving me back my life.

I became a patient of Dr. Kametz back in 2014 after meeting him by happenstance at Vitamin Shoppe. Dr. K is different from most chiropractors. He uses the Gonstead Chiropractic, which is a method in which only the areas of the spine that need adjustment get adjusted. I find that method preferable to the traditional, head-to-toe adjustments every visit. Over the years, I have recommended Dr. K to friends and acquaintances who complained about body pain or were looking for a new chiropractor. Two actually became patients of Dr. K as well. Dr. K's practice has grown since 2014. He is now joined by Will, who is not only a skilled chiropractor but has a background and expertise in Physical Therapy. Both Dr. K and Will have provided me with a lot of relief. The front desk staff at Gohl Clinic are friendly and caring. Overall review: positive experience!

I experienced a remarkable transformation in my health thanks to the clinic. From the beginning, the staff was exceptionally friendly, providing high quality care. The recommendations for taking care of my back were essential. Although the treatment seemed strange to me at first, after only 6 sessions, the sciatica pain completely disappeared. An incredible experience that highlights the effectiveness of this clinic. 100% recommended

After 15 years, many thousands spent, and several chiropractic methods later, the Gonstead method at the Gohl clinic delivered. This should be the standard in chiropractic care. No other method truly helped restore my vertebral issues.My issue was C5/C6, L5/S1, T4 and a rotated pelvis. After just 13 sessions twice per week, I'm pain and discomfort free. I have more to go to keep things reinforced but less frequent visits.As a lifelong surfer, my sessions were always limited or non-existent due to pain and discomfort. Surf trips we're always short. Now I'm feeling and surfing like a grom again. Very stoked!Thank you Gohl Clinic!

I went here while on vacation at the recommendation of my home chiropractor. I saw Dr. K for bell's palsy, which started on a Tuesday. I went twice for adjustments that week. My bells palsy was 100% gone by Sunday. I was really nervous to go to someone different for such a scary thing, but I knew I needed chiropractic care and it was either that or fly home. Give him a shot. Chiropractic care works and he is clearly an excellent DC.

I suffered a lot from swollen feet, back and neck pain that kept me from sleeping, before attending Gohl Clinic of Chiropractic. I went to other places where they only said it was stress, but with them at the first adjustment I felt the difference, the treatment is super good and they explain everything in detail. They speak Spanish and answer all your questions, they are very flexible with the schedule.

I have been going here since July, and they have been nothing but amazing and welcoming. My back pain has significantly improved since I started seeing them. They not only helped alleviate my lower back pain but also made my entire spine feel more aligned. Additionally, when they adjusted my neck it took away my headaches, which I have been having for many years. I highly recommend this chiropractor to anyone who is struggling with any kind of back pain or discomfort

My experience with the Gohl Clinic as been nothing short of spectacular. First and foremost, the team is incredibly kind, polite, warm and friendly. They are always greeting you by first name as you walk through the door. Appointments are quick and effective so I never feel like I have to spend half my day planning for this appointment because they are so efficient. Dr. Kametz is absolutely wonderful. He personalizes your treatment towards your needs and health goals. His positivity abounds and you can tell he really cares for the total wellness of his patients. He believes in proactive treatment versus reactive treatment. He is very knowledgeable, kind and always takes the extra few minutes to address any of your concerns or to simply ask how you are doing. He has even called me personally at home when I have not been able to make an appointment due to injury to make sure I am okay and to offer any tips or pointers that could help in getting me back to health. I have been to several chiropractors in the past and I could not recommend this practice more. First chiropractor I’ve ever been to that actually made me feel cared about. 10/10 stars from me!

This in-depth approach allows him to tailor treatment plans specifically to meet patients needs, ensuring effective care.Over the years, my family members have also sought his expertise, and he consistently delivers exceptional results. Whether it's a chronic condition, injury, or general wellness, Dr. Kametz treatments have consistently produced positive outcomes for all of us.Overall, I recommend Dr. Kametz to anyone interested in seeking chiropractic care.

This office and staff are beyond amazing the reason I went to this Chiropractor is that Dr. Kametz got to the root cause of my sister’s fertility issues and got her healthy enough to conceive two beautiful girls. And for me Dr. Kametz has helped with my seizure activity by helping me take a different approach besides medication and I appreciate it because the difference is amazing. They are also accommodating to my hectic travel schedule and make every effort to see me when I need adjustments on short notice.

Dr.Kametz and his team are amazing!! I originally came seeking help for pain I had after my second child. He helped me get rid of that pain and so many more that I had for many years and just ignored, all within a few sessions. There were so many other great benefits from the sessions that my husband and I still continue with him and his team. The entire team is amazing and it's always a good time coming into the office.

Headed to a back surgery with extreme back and numb legs. Barely able to get into my car much less play any sports. I met Dr.Kametz and decided to give him a shot. 4 years later broke 80 first time playing golf. No surgery no leg numbness and no back pain. The entire staff is fantastic, super helpful and makes everyone feel like family. Highly recommended. Without a doubt the best chiropractic experience.

I visited Dr. Joe after seeing YouTube videos of the Gonstead Method and having constant back and neck stiffness. I would always need to crack by back to get comfortable before sleeping, and would often wake up with a stiff neck where you can't move it one way without pain for a few days. The improvement after seeing Dr. Joe was gradual but definitely noticeable. After about 1 year, I was feeling better than I had been in the past 5 years. Its been about 4 years now since I started visiting Dr. Joe and feel great. I don't feel like "I'm getting old" anymore and feel like I'll be able to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle for many years to come. Thank you Gohl Clinic!

Hands down the best chiropractor clinic in Carlsbad. The receptionist are always friendly and helpful, the Doctors perform their job with a passion and actually care about your quality of life. I’ve dealt with a magnitude of pain due to an autoimmune disorder and injuries sustained during military service for 10+ years of my life. Finally, I have found relief thanks to the providers of this clinic, thank you!

I have also seen improvements in many other aspects of my health. I cannot recommend Dr. K highly enough! And his staff are just as wonderful, always so accommodating and friendly.

Pain eliminated! Dr Kametz continues to be my secret weapon for sanity and working long hours over a laptop. During the pandemic, I was forced to work without a proper set up that caused pain in a number of areas, mainly neck and back. His adjustments allowed me to function well during that craziness. Now we focus more on keeping my hands working on the mouse and keyboard. Highly recommend!

Both doctors are helpful, compassionate and know their stuff! I can't say enough good things about the girls at the front desk. They are the best. They truely make Gohl chiropractor a welcoming place. Check them out you won't be disappointed.

Life changing! I got whiplash and blacked out on a roller coaster and felt as if my spine was stabbing me in the bottom of my skull. Along with headaches nausea and vomiting and being bedridden multiple days of the week. I left another chiropractor because I always felt worse and was in excruciating pain after having my neck adjusted. I started physical therapy for my neck and was told I was 45% disabled from my neck. Finished physical therapy treatment and still wasn’t anywhere near where I wanted to be so I reluctantly took my sisters advice and came here. I started with stabilization. I’d say I’ve been a patient for 2 years now and I can go through my day’s normally now!

Im a former military, with years of treatment through a wide range of practitioners and zero results. Within weeks of seeing Dr. Kametz, I have great relief in my lower back, my sleeping patterns have begun to revert back to some what normal and my never ending bowel movements have almost completely returned to normalcy. Highly recommend his services before any other treatments unlike what I did and had lower back surgery first then found him.

I have been a patient of Dr Joseph Kametz since fall of 2020 when I had severe back pain, could barely walk and went to see a Gonstead Chiropractor while visiting my daughter in IL. He told me to find a Gonstead chiropractor when I got home, and I found Gohl Clinic. I have been impressed from the beginning with the professionalism of all, especially the office staff who are the best I have ever worked with in a Drs office. I am walking, hiking, gardening and even playing occasional golf, free from back pain thanks to Dr K.

Thanks to Dr K that is no longer an issue! I have also tapped into the REGENISIS side of the office, after 2 kids I struggled with my weight so I decided to give it a go! Their new RED LIGHT program actually works! I’ve lost about 15lbs so far and only half way through!!

I came in with reoccurring back pain and headaches, along with thyroid issues and low energy levels. After even just the first session I felt better and I knew I was In good hands. It’s been 2 months and I feel so good. It’s a healing journey and I’m definitely feeling the progress with my body. Thank you Dr.Kametz and thank you to the staff working the front desk you guys are awesome.

After seeing a physical therapist and chiropractor for a herniated C5/C6 which was causing debilitating nerve pain in my left arm and hand, I heard about Dr. Kametz and his methodology. He X-rayed my back, and was able to concisely explain the technique he would use to correct the problem. True to form, 6 months later, he was able to completely restore function and feeling where others failed after 2 years. I cannot recommend Dr Kametz enough. As a bonus, the front desk staff are the friendliest I've ever had the pleasure of scheduling with!!

My son was diagnosed with active airways diseases (asthma) at just under 2 years old. Any cold and he would be struggling to breathe and in ER in a matter of minutes. Dr. Kametz has changed my sons life in the most amazing way. We fight cold so much faster then before and haven’t been to ER since starting his adjustments. I can’t even remember the last time he needed a breathing treatemeny. Dr. Kametz is a miracle worker and I can’t even fathom where our life would be without finding him and gonstead chiropractic work. Thank you Dr!!!!!

This place saved my life !In just 12 visits I went from a level 9 pain / discomfort to 100% pain free. I wish I would have found this place sooner !! I had been in pain for so long. Nerve pain in my arm, my hand, my shoulder, my pelvis, my hips, my neck ! I wasn’t sleeping, couldn’t really workout, couldn’t focus, had extreme brain fog, you can view the before and after log to see all my symptoms. At just 30 years old, I felt like I was falling apart from the inside out. Thank you so much Dr Kametz, you and your AMAZING staff. You have such a beautiful business here and I’ll never stop telling people how much you helped me! And Glory to God for answering my prayers and leading me here ! May God continue to bless your business and use you to help as many people as possible.Ps, this has been the most affordable chiropractor i have been to over the last 10 years! Not only that, but the most genuine, humble, kind and trustworthy too ! It doesn’t get better than GOHL Clinic

My lower back pain has gotten much more manageable while the pain in my leg and wrist has reduced significantly. Finally getting back into some light lifting and my other outdoor hobbies. Incredible staff that you can tell really cares.

This office and staff are beyond amazing the reason I went to this Chiropractor is that Dr. Kametz got to the root cause of my sister’s fertility issues and got her healthy enough to conceive two beautiful girls. And for me Dr. Kametz has helped with my seizure activity by helping me take a different approach besides medication and I appreciate it because the difference is amazing. They are also accommodating to my hectic travel schedule and make every effort to see me when I need adjustments on short notice.

Dr.Kametz and his team are amazing!! I originally came seeking help for pain I had after my second child. He helped me get rid of that pain and so many more that I had for many years and just ignored, all within a few sessions. There were so many other great benefits from the sessions that my husband and I still continue with him and his team. The entire team is amazing and it's always a good time coming into the office.

Headed to a back surgery with extreme back and numb legs. Barely able to get into my car much less play any sports. I met Dr.Kametz and decided to give him a shot. 4 years later broke 80 first time playing golf. No surgery no leg numbness and no back pain. The entire staff is fantastic, super helpful and makes everyone feel like family. Highly recommended. Without a doubt the best chiropractic experience.

I visited Dr. Joe after seeing YouTube videos of the Gonstead Method and having constant back and neck stiffness. I would always need to crack by back to get comfortable before sleeping, and would often wake up with a stiff neck where you can't move it one way without pain for a few days. The improvement after seeing Dr. Joe was gradual but definitely noticeable. After about 1 year, I was feeling better than I had been in the past 5 years. Its been about 4 years now since I started visiting Dr. Joe and feel great. I don't feel like "I'm getting old" anymore and feel like I'll be able to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle for many years to come. Thank you Gohl Clinic!

Hands down the best chiropractor clinic in Carlsbad. The receptionist are always friendly and helpful, the Doctors perform their job with a passion and actually care about your quality of life. I’ve dealt with a magnitude of pain due to an autoimmune disorder and injuries sustained during military service for 10+ years of my life. Finally, I have found relief thanks to the providers of this clinic, thank you!

Dr. Kametz and the whole staff at Gohl Clinic are the best of the best!! After years of struggling with digestive trouble to no avail, I am feeling significantly better after just 2 months. I have also seen improvements in many other aspects of my health. I cannot recommend Dr. K highly enough! And his staff are just as wonderful, always so accommodating and friendly.

Pain eliminated! Dr Kametz continues to be my secret weapon for sanity and working long hours over a laptop. During the pandemic, I was forced to work without a proper set up that caused pain in a number of areas, mainly neck and back. His adjustments allowed me to function well during that craziness. Now we focus more on keeping my hands working on the mouse and keyboard. Highly recommend!

They truely make Gohl chiropractor a welcoming place. Check them out you won't be disappointed.

Life changing! I got whiplash and blacked out on a roller coaster and felt as if my spine was stabbing me in the bottom of my skull. Along with headaches nausea and vomiting and being bedridden multiple days of the week. I left another chiropractor because I always felt worse and was in excruciating pain after having my neck adjusted. I started physical therapy for my neck and was told I was 45% disabled from my neck. Finished physical therapy treatment and still wasn’t anywhere near where I wanted to be so I reluctantly took my sisters advice and came here. I started with stabilization. I’d say I’ve been a patient for 2 years now and I can go through my day’s normally now!

Im a former military, with years of treatment through a wide range of practitioners and zero results. Within weeks of seeing Dr. Kametz, I have great relief in my lower back, my sleeping patterns have begun to revert back to some what normal and my never ending bowel movements have almost completely returned to normalcy. Highly recommend his services before any other treatments unlike what I did and had lower back surgery first then found him.

I have been a patient of Dr Joseph Kametz since fall of 2020 when I had severe back pain, could barely walk and went to see a Gonstead Chiropractor while visiting my daughter in IL. He told me to find a Gonstead chiropractor when I got home, and I found Gohl Clinic. I have been impressed from the beginning with the professionalism of all, especially the office staff who are the best I have ever worked with in a Drs office. I am walking, hiking, gardening and even playing occasional golf, free from back pain thanks to Dr K.

Highly recommend!! I have been with Dr K for a few years now and I absolutely love him! I see him religiously. After having my first I had horrible sciatic pain. Thanks to Dr K that is no longer an issue! I have also tapped into the REGENISIS side of the office, after 2 kids I struggled with my weight so I decided to give it a go! Their new RED LIGHT program actually works! I’ve lost about 15lbs so far and only half way through!!

Since day one I felt super comfortable coming in. The office staff was very friendly and very professional. Dr. Joseph Kametz is super nice and very professional. I came in with reoccurring back pain and headaches, along with thyroid issues and low energy levels. After even just the first session I felt better and I knew I was In good hands. It’s been 2 months and I feel so good. It’s a healing journey and I’m definitely feeling the progress with my body. Thank you Dr.Kametz and thank you to the staff working the front desk you guys are awesome.

After seeing a physical therapist and chiropractor for a herniated C5/C6 which was causing debilitating nerve pain in my left arm and hand, I heard about Dr. Kametz and his methodology. He X-rayed my back, and was able to concisely explain the technique he would use to correct the problem. True to form, 6 months later, he was able to completely restore function and feeling where others failed after 2 years. I cannot recommend Dr Kametz enough. As a bonus, the front desk staff are the friendliest I've ever had the pleasure of scheduling with!!

My son was diagnosed with active airways diseases (asthma) at just under 2 years old. Any cold and he would be struggling to breathe and in ER in a matter of minutes. Dr. Kametz has changed my sons life in the most amazing way. We fight cold so much faster then before and haven’t been to ER since starting his adjustments. I can’t even remember the last time he needed a breathing treatemeny. Dr. Kametz is a miracle worker and I can’t even fathom where our life would be without finding him and gonstead chiropractic work. Thank you Dr!!!!!

This place saved my life !In just 12 visits I went from a level 9 pain / discomfort to 100% pain free. I wish I would have found this place sooner !! I had been in pain for so long. Nerve pain in my arm, my hand, my shoulder, my pelvis, my hips, my neck ! I wasn’t sleeping, couldn’t really workout, couldn’t focus, had extreme brain fog, you can view the before and after log to see all my symptoms. At just 30 years old, I felt like I was falling apart from the inside out. Thank you so much Dr Kametz, you and your AMAZING staff. You have such a beautiful business here and I’ll never stop telling people how much you helped me! And Glory to God for answering my prayers and leading me here ! May God continue to bless your business and use you to help as many people as possible.Ps, this has been the most affordable chiropractor i have been to over the last 10 years! Not only that, but the most genuine, humble, kind and trustworthy too ! It doesn’t get better than GOHL Clinic

Proven Results

People come to our office with neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, shooting tingling pain in the arms, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, migraines, and/or many other health symptoms. Those conditions can be caused by subluxation (a herniated disc in the spine that damages the nerves). 

Therapies will never take the place of a Gonstead Chiropractic adjustment. The Gohl Clinic of Chiropractic in Carlsbad specializes in the Gonstead chiropractic technique of adjusting. The Gonstead system provides gentle, precise, specific, and provable results with significant changes in patient symptoms and structural changes in before and after x-rays.

Conditions Treated At Gohl Clinic

Normal Alignment

Chiropractors analyze and correct spinal subluxations.

Subluxation is a condition when the spinal bones, instead of protecting the delicate nerves, interfere with the nerves.  This causes damage to the end organ attached to them.

There are four characteristics of a subluxation.

1) Misalignment – bone twist out of normal position

2) Occlusion – when the hole the nerve passes thru gets smaller

3) Pressure – smaller hole causes increased pressure on the nerves

4) Interference – pinched nerves restricts nerve impulses to organs

Subluxation

 

Since subluxations interfere with the master control center of the body, they may cause any condition in the body.  Often times subluxations produce pain, but this is at the end state of disease, not the beginning.

When an organ gets a restricted nerve impulse, over time the cells malfunction at that organ.  If enough cells malfunction, then you have a symptom.  If symptoms persist long enough, then you have a pathology which is now a medical condition.

If your primary condition is a subluxation, chiropractic can help any secondary condition from asthma to irregular menses to colic to back pain.  Once the subluxation is corrected, normal function can begin. Call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Headaches and MigrainesMigraine headaches are a neurological disorder characterized by severe headaches and other visceral symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to light and sound, and sever pain.  Many sufferers report an aura.

When there is spinal misalignment, the bones protecting the spinal cord interfere with the nerves instead of protecting them.  This interference causes the body to malfunction somehow, either directly by causing pain or indirectly by not chemically or hormonally balancing the body properly.  Often, a symptom of this is a migraine headache.

Once the pressure on the nerves is relieved, the body has no reason for pain and can balance itself chemically and hormonally and function properly.

We have outstanding success with those suffering from headaches and migraines. If you’re suffering from headaches or migraines, call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Golf InjuriesInjuries happen when the body cannot adapt to the physical stress placed upon it.  This is often the case in golf.

Most often the pain and discomfort is caused by a vertebral subluxation.

The twisting of the spine (along with flexing forward) is the most damaging to the discs, which protect the nerves.  Over time, if the subluxation is not corrected, neurologic malfunction become more prevalent, the discs begin to degenerate, and the spine in an attempt to protect itself develops arthritis.

Common manipulative technique used in chiropractic involves a twisting of the pelvis.  While this may temporarily work for decreasing pain and increasing motion, the continuous twisting will further damage lumbar discs giving rise to more inflammation around the nerves.  In our office, using the Gonstead system, we use a specific technique that requires no twisting of the spine for adjustments.  This facilitates the healing process quicker and for more lasting effects.

Call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

neck and back painSubluxations (misalignments of the spinal vertebrae) are one of the most common causes of neck and low back pain. When vertebrae are misaligned, they put pressure directly on spinal nerves, causing pain. Muscle spasms may set in which can increase the pressure further. This extra pressure can cause even more inflammation and irritation, which leads to more pain. And the cycle continues. Often times, stretching and massage may only temporarily relieve the pain because the cause (subluxation) has not been addressed. A chiropractic adjustment focuses on correcting the cause.

If you suffer from neck or back pain, call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

pinched nerveWhen a nerve is squeezed or compressed it is called a “pinched nerve”. This can be caused by spinal misalignment, bulging or herniated discs, or other factors. The increased pressure on the nerve causes inflammation, pain, and sometimes muscle spasms. The pressure on the nerve must be relieved in order to alleviate the pain. If you are suffering from a pinched nerve, call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Whiplash

Whiplash is a common injury for people involved in car collisions. When a car is struck from behind or collides with another object, it causes the neck to snap back and forth violently. This causes the muscles and ligaments (including the Intervertebral Disc) to overextend, leading to strains and/or tears.  This is referred to as soft tissue damage, and can cause stiffness and soreness. Whiplash can also cause structural damage such as misaligned vertebrae, herniated, bulging or ruptured discs, or nerve damage due to the overextension from the violent movement.

Gonstead chiropractic can help with both types of injuries. Gonstead adjustments can be performed specifically for those who have been in car accidents and suffered from whiplash. The pressure on the discs and nerves is released when the spine is returned to its proper alignment, preventing nerve and disc damage.The most important time to get checked by a Gonstead chiropractor after an accident is roughly three days.

If you are under regular Gonstead chiropractic care, you should be seen shortly after the accident.  The small delay in care will have given the upset structures a chance to settle down a bit so a more accurate xray may be taken.  However, waiting too long after an accident may cause structures to mal-adapt and begin the degeneration process.  Many people after accidents wait 10, 20 years or even more before seeing a chiropractor years later when they have neck pain. Yet, the problem began in an accident as a teen.  At that point, the amount of degeneration that has taken place during this time will never allow a full recovery. If you have been in a car accident, call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

anterior-head-syndrome-430x339Anterior Head Syndrome (ANS) is a relatively new condition presenting itself in the early 2000s.  Sedentary lifestyle stresses such as heads down texting, computers, gaming, and tremendous emotional stresses have stressed the muscles and ligaments to a point where they cannot adapt.  Often time this leads to misalignment of the spinal bones which creates pressure on the nerves and stretches the spinal cord.  This produces significant neurologic consequences.  ANS is so serious that in a recent medical study out of UCLA, men and women with hyperkyphotic spines (ANS) had an increased mortality rate.  Besides an unsightly postural condition in females called Dowager’s Hump, children with weakened muscles and sedentary lifestyles are being seriously affected by this.

You can self-test for ANS, but your chiropractor can only determine if it is caused by a chiropractic condition.  If you suffer from Anterior Head Syndrome, please call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a condition in which repeated trauma has gradually degraded the joints

including cartilage and bone.  It mostly happens in weight bearing joints such as the knees, hips, and spine.  It is also common in the neck and hands.

Over time, degenerated joints may cause stiffness and strain the supporting muscle.  This generally will lead to the body compensating consciously or not.  Here the body will begin to develop bone spurs to protect the joints from excessive movement.

When there is a subluxation, there is always a bone in the spine that is fixed into position.  When the subluxation is corrected, often time normal body movement will ensue.  When there is no longer any need for extra joint protection, often times the bone will resorb as calcium into the blood stream.

If you suffer from arthritis, please call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Allergies are an incorrect response by your immune system to an allergen (substances that normally have no effect on people) resulting in sneezing, coughing, congestion, hives, rashes, and in severe cases, seizure and anaphylactic shock.  These symptoms are caused by the histamines your immune system creates in an attempt to protect your body against the allergen.

When your spine is misaligned it can impinge on the nerves in your body.  The nervous system controls everything including chemical and hormone release.  Any insult to the nervous system will cause the body to not function properly, and your immune system cannot work at an optimal level.

Chiropractors realign the spine to relieve any stress on nerves. This allows the immune system to work at a higher level, making it easier to fight off infections while recognizing allergens.  When your immune system recognizes allergens, it will not overreact to them, or at least not react as severely to them.

In our office, most patients report a decrease in the severity and the frequency of allergies, and most cease taking drugs all together. Gonstead chiropractic does not work like an anti-histamine as a direct, short term relief from allergies. Gonstead chiropractic allows your body to be better equipped to fight against allergies.  If you suffer from allergies, please call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

These days millions of Americans have jobs which can have damaging effects on the hands and arms. Repetitive movements which are not performed with good ergonomics in mind can cause micro-trauma to the hands and wrists.   This trauma combined with joint dysfunction and spinal problems may result in a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome.

The median nerve, which is affected in carpal tunnel syndrome, travels from spinal cord from the lower neck, down the arm, through the wrist and to the tips of the fingers.   If one or more of these structures are affected, symptoms of wrist pain, numbness, weakness, burning and loss of muscle function can occur.

Surgery is usually unnecessary because it deals with the wrist, and more often than not that pain is caused by misalignment of the bones in the lower neck.  Gonstead chiropractic can assure that all of the joints and muscles along the path of the nerve are free of obstruction and functioning normally, thus reducing nerve irritation and pain.  If you suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, please call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Gas, bloating, heart burn, reflux and general digestive problems plague nearly 80% of adults. Many times, poor diet is the cause.  But often times, the digestive organs do not produce the proper chemicals and enzymes necessary for digestion.  The nerves going to the digestive organs are responsible for telling the organs to create digestive fluids.  Often times when the spinal bones are misaligned, they create pressure on those nerves making proper digestion impossible.  Once the spine is back into a normal position, the body can create digestive juices and digest food properly.  If your digestive difficulties are caused by a chiropractic condition, we have outstanding success rates. Call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Failed Back SurgeryThere is more than a 50% chance your back surgery will fail.  Failure means equal or more pain, or more surgeries or drugs needed.  Attempting to artificially stabilize a joint by fusion or by discectomy can destabilize the joint further by causing other vertebrae to make up the lost range of motion, or by decreasing the overall matter of the disc necessary for joint stabilization.  Invariably, surgery further destabilizes spinal segments and increases misalignment causing more severe subluxation.  Surgery speeds this process of subluxation.

If this is you, there may be hope.  We have worked with surgery cases where there have been a complete recovery from symptoms.  For these candidates, there is a special program at our office. Call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.

Gohl Clinic Testimonials

Dr. Kametz initially impressed me with how much he cares about chiropractic and me as a patient. Even more so, how much he wanted me (and all of his patients) to understand how the body works and the importance of a healthy spine.  Over 2-3 months I felt better, slept better, and reduced injuries during my long runs. When we did a follow up x-ray I could see visible improvements.

The Gohl Clinic is a top notch chiropractic facility with one of the best chiropractors I have ever experienced. I have been to many different docs over the years but Dr Kametz is by far the best. He takes time for you and explains your condition in detail and correlates with his exam and x-rays. His adjustments are precise and gentle and he never twists or uses excessive force. I would recommend this doctor to anyone looking for high quality chiropractic care in the san diego or orange county areas.
Brennan Buchan
Brennan Buchan
What I admired the most and the reason I go to Dr. Kamerz is the fact that he’s such a detailed oriented individual. He wouldn’t allow you to leave until everything is perfect and at tip to shape. This is extremely important and I believe the reason I was able to qualify for the Boston Marathon because of him.
Michael's Testimony
Michael
I have been seeing Dr. Kametz for three years now. Before that I had seen at least a dozen chiropractors, therapists, acupuncturists, medical doctors and anyone else who could offer me pain relief over the last dozen years. After seeing Dr. Kametz, I am so much better today than I have been in many, many years thanks to his techniques. I did construction work and drove and loaded and unloaded trucks for over 30 years and it took its toll on me. I continue his maintenance visits every 3 weeks as well as walking to keep in shape. I highly recommend Dr. Kametz to all of you whether you feel the pain or not. You deserve to feel better and your body will thank you for it.
