I have been a chiropractor for almost 20 years now. The one thing I enjoy the most is learning new methods and techniques to better serve my patients. Over a month ago, I was fortunate enough to take a class on a technique called Gravitational Pattern Alignment. It was taught by an amazing chiropractor Dr. Nelson Vetanze who has over 44 years of experience treating some pretty high profile athletes.
Here is Dr. Vetanze’s explanation of Gravitational Pattern Alignment:
“The basic concept of the GPA Chiropractic Technique (Gravitational Pattern Alignment) is based on Newton’s Third Law of nature and its effect on the human body. When any body part is out of alignment, gravity immediately forces the body to rebalance creating distortions throughout the musculoskeletal chain.
Additionally, our eyes are designed to remain horizontal and the brain makes proprioceptive responses to hold the eyes level causing a profound impact on how the body compensates against gravity. The combination of misalignment, gravity, and level eyes will compound even a minor misalignment, taking a gradual, and increasing, toll on body parts and symptoms that may not appear for weeks or even years. The theory of GPA is to achieve and maintain the two-legged postural structure in an upright structure symmetrically balanced relative to the downward stress of the gravitational field. When this is achieved, discomfort is relieved.”
Since using this technique of the past month, we have been getting some phenomenal results with our patients. Patients that have had chronic pain for years are symptom free after a few visits. If you would like to see how GPA can help you, give the office a call. We are only one of a few offices in Colorado, to offer this technique.
