Karen Gould D.C. is a 1986 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic. Prior to joining Traub Chiropractic in 1993, she was in private practice in North Dakota.
Adjusting Techniques: Manual (with hands) adjusting/manipulation techniques of Gonstead and Diversified style (Palmer methods). Also uses lighter touch techniques of Activator and Thompson (drop table technique). Decision making is based on patient need and preference.
Extremity adjusting: Dr. Gould is very experienced in treating extremity injuries like heel spurs/plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff, and tennis elbow.
Muscle work (trigger point therapy) and muscle stretching are used for many conditions. Dr. Gould does a lot of hands on muscle work during her treatments.
Dr. Gould’s Chiropractic philosophy is to make certain every patient has been instructed in self help strategies like strength and stretching exercises. Along with the strength training recommendations, she also likes to help her patients ‘work smarter’. The exercises and work tips allow patients to reduce the risk of injury recurrence.
