Example text

Grostic was thought to be the first chiropractor who routinely took postradiographs after the patient’s initial adjustment (Fig. 1-17). 48 Grostic’s focus was placed on vectored adjusting, based on the fact that not all HIO doctors using the same listings set up to deliver the adjustment in the same manner. A more precise listing and more specific adjustment were required to help ensure a more standardized procedure. Grostic stated: The adjustment should be given with extreme accuracy, governed by the laws of mechanics, mathematics and physics.

He did not believe in adjusting cases daily and appeared to appreciate the restoration principle. 40 Wernsing traveled to PSC in the fall of 1939 and presented his upper cervical technique to the pre-lyceum meeting. 44 However, news of his research spread, and doctors from across the country began visiting his office. These doctors compelled him to teach; as a result, he traveled all over the United States presenting seminars. qxd 02/06/2007 13:22 Page 14 Techbooks[PPG-Quark] 14 CHAPTER 1 | HISTORY OF THE GROSTIC/ORTHOSPINOLOGY PROCEDURE articles that Wernsing first presented how to perform an atlas adjustment in the side-posture position.

In 1952, the adjustment was modified by adopting a closed stance, lighter contact, and shallower thrust. 47 Grostic used torque to correct C2 spinous process and lower angle misalignments. This differed from the HIO concept of torque, which was used to correct the superiority or inferiority of the atlas. He also felt that chronic cases and opposite angle subluxations with inferior C2 spinous process misalignment required more force and possibly a second adjustive thrust. 47 Grostic typically provided only one thrust with each adjustment before taking post–X-rays; however, he was known to provide multiple thrusts for certain cases.
