About the Doctor:

Dr. Stewart, a 1996 graduate of Life Chiropractic University in Georgia, continued her chiropractic education with the Gonstead Clinical Seminars, earning her certification in the Gonstead Technique. She was a teacher of the Gonstead Technique while maintaining a practice for several years in Georgia. Missing her family from New England, she relocated and opened a practice in New Hampshire. Dr. Stewart practiced in Mont Vernon, NH for nine wonderful years before relocating her practice to Amherst, NH in 2010. Dr. Stewart is the only chiropractor using the Gonstead Technique in NH, with only 5% practicing in the whole country.

Her leisure time is filled with activities in the outdoors. She enjoys the beauty the NH White Mountains have to offer, being with nature, her family, friends, and the joys of seeing her patients get better.

Dr. Stewart is compassionate, gentle and honest.

About the Gonstead Technique:

The Gonstead System is unique because it is thorough, complete and specific in both analysis and treatment of the spine. A Gonstead Practitioner addresses the entire spine when evaluating for the presence of vertebral subluxations (spinal misalignments producing nerve interference or irritation) which cause ill health.

A Gonstead Chiropractor conducts a thorough analysis of your spine using five criteria to detect the pressure of the vertebral subluxation complex.

Five Criteria:

  • X-ray analysis
  • Instrumentation which detects uneven distribution of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure.
  • Static palpation
  • Motion palpation
  • Visualization

The Gonstead practitioner delivers a specific, precise and accurate-as-possible spinal correction.

Some issues Dr. Stewart has addressed for her patients:

  • Extremity corrections: knees, shoulders, feet, elbows, TMJ
  • Children's health issues: ear infections, asthma, bed-wetting, ADD
  • Herniated discs
  • Post surgery back patients
  • Numbness and tingling in hands and feet
  • Pain
  • Sciatic
  • Headaches
    And too many to list...
