Techniques Performed

Diversified Technique: This is a manual adjustment technique that involves the chiropractor using their hands to apply controlled force to specific joints to restore proper alignment and mobility. It is versatile and can be used to address a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, including joint dysfunction, spinal misalignment, and muscle tension. 

Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique: Also known as Flexion-Distraction, this technique is performed on a specialized table that allows for gentle traction and flexion of the spine. It is particularly effective for treating conditions such as disc herniation, sciatica, and spinal stenosis by creating space between the vertebrae and reducing pressure on spinal nerves. 

Thompson Drop Technique: This technique utilizes a chiropractic table with sections that can be dropped slightly when pressure is applied during the adjustment. The dropping motion helps enhance the effectiveness of the adjustment while minimizing the force applied to the patient’s body. It is commonly used for spinal realignment and can benefit patients who prefer a gentler approach. 

Activator Technique: The Activator Method involves the use of a handheld instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver precise and targeted adjustments to the spine and extremities. It utilizes a quick, low-force impulse to stimulate movement in specific areas without the need for manual manipulation. This technique is suitable for patients who prefer a gentle approach or have sensitive conditions. 

Pro Adjuster Technique: The Pro Adjuster is a computer-assisted chiropractic device that uses sophisticated technology to analyze spinal motion and deliver precise adjustments. It provides real-time feedback to the chiropractor, allowing for customized treatment based on the patient’s unique needs. The Pro Adjuster is gentle, non-invasive, and well-suited for individuals who may not respond well to traditional manual adjustments. 

Each of these chiropractic adjusting techniques offers unique advantages and can be tailored to meet the individual needs and preferences of patients.
