Hello. I'm Dr. Craig Barcomb. I've been at Westcoast Spine Center for over 30 years here in Sarasota, Florida.
We focus on non-surgical orthopedics by utilizing Gonstead Chiropractic Care with a Licensed Physical Therapy Practice. This allows us to achieve a higher and more comprehensive level of treatment and recovery.
I certainly do consider the Gonstead Chiropractic protocols as being the gold standard, the methodology of choice, with regard to accurately diagnosing and treating spinal injuries and other issues. The main difference between Gonstead and other Chiropractic techniques is the fact I’ll be evaluating you with x-rays, as well as with motion palpation. You're also going to have the temperature of the skin on top of the spine measured, which directs us towards the exact areas of inflammation.
“Find it, fix it and leave it alone.”
This digital Thermal Scan is a dynamic way of helping my patients clearly understand the level of inflammation and swelling in different areas of their spine. Reviewing the resulting images together on a large screen clearly illustrates the correlation between the spine and symptoms in other areas of the body, including internal organs.
The most unique differences in Gonstead versus other chiropractic protocols or methods, is the manipulative procedures themselves. They’re specifically directed on injured areas. One of the little sayings that you’ll hear me say a lot is, “Find it, fix it and leave it alone.”
So if you or someone you know has limited mobility or physical pain from an auto accident, some other type of injury or physical condition that is hampering your normal daily activities and lifestyle, do yourself or them a favor. Go to a telephone and dial 941-362-2000 and make an appointment. Where others have failed, we’ve succeeded in helping people just like you.
