Chiropractic Care

Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Chiropractic Physician, Dr. Gossett has more than 35 years of training and experience in spinal manipulation/adjustment.
Neurological Care

Neurological Care

The primary function of the nervous system depends on fuel (oxygen & nutrients) & activation (activity). Fuel is provided by the CSF (Cerebro-Spinal Fluid) circulation & activation by demands put on the nervous system to perform a reflex or activity.
We provide advanced neurological procedures, including Neuro-Cranial Integration (a gentle stretching technique performed by Dr. Gossett) to reduce scar tissue, which blocks this normal circulation in the meninges (in & around the brain, spinal cord & nerve roots). This procedure normalizes the CSF circulation & delivery of fuel throughout the nervous system, allowing maximum oxygen & nutrients availability to each of the nervous system cells, for normal function. We also provide Brain-Based Exercise Therapy, to provide activation of the weak regions of the nervous system, to build them up & bring them back to more normal function.

Orthopedic Care - Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Orthopedic Care - Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Gossett Clinic is proud to be the first provider in Champaign to offer the benefits of non-surgical spinal decompression to people suffering from chronic and severe neck & back pain. Spinal decompression is offering hope and healing to people tho have suffered for years with sciatica, cervico-cranial & cervico-brachial syndromes, degenerative disc disease, bulging and herniated disks, spondylolisthesis, stenosis, failed surgery and other causes of back pain. Patients who undergo this breakthrough treatment are "miraculously" achieving pain-free status. We've even had patients present with canes, walkers & wheelchairs, who after care come & leave visits, walking out on their own two feet. Non-surgical decompression is helping people get off heavy duty prescription drugs, including narcotics and avoid invasive surgery while healing the root cause of low back pain and allowing people to get their lives back!
Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Counseling

We also provide our patients with nutritional counseling. Our staff can provide questionaires, which Dr. Gossett can use to discover what testing (lab) would be appropriate to uncover any metabolic (functional medicine conditions) you may have & various changes you should make to your diet in order to help you return to and maintain optimal health. We also offer a wide range of in-house testing & nutritional support products to help you get the most benefit out of your treatment program by helping your body replace vital nutrients that are depleted during the course of chronic pain and illness.
Custom Pedal Orthotics and Spinal Orthotics/Braces

Custom Pedal Orthotics and Spinal Orthotics/Braces

Dr. Gossett also provides patients with custom foot orthotics to help correct spinal imbalances that may be caused by improper positioning and use of the feet. Without a good walking foundation, foot, ankle, knee, hip, pelvic & spinal imbalances and subluxations (joint misalignments) result, causing pain and discomfort. Custom orthotics help support & correct poor foot function and restore optimal performance to your lower extremities, pelvis & spine. Custom spinal orthosis/braces can also provide important stabilization while undergoing treatment to correct back problems, relieving poor posture, preventing improper movement, and stabilizing the spine while it is recovering from improper alignment and misuse.
Lifestyle Advice

Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
Corrective Exercises

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place, contain scar tissue or be strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises, manual techniques and stretches can help your body both regain and stay in balance, resulting in better health. These corrective exercises also help reduce the chances of misuse and reinjury, reducing the recurrance of pain and injury to your body.
