CHIROPRACTIC TECHNIQUES

Diversified
Diversified technique is one of the quickest and safest ways to restore normal movement to the spine and other joints in the body. This technique involves using the Doctor’s hands to make very gentle, specific adjustments to the spine and extremities. This type of adjustment often results in a cavitation, or “popping,” of the joint.

Drop Table Technique
Drop Table Technique is a very precise Chiropractic method that uses a distinctive table with several segments called drop pieces. These segments can be raised up a fraction of an inch, so when the adjustment is delivered by the Doctor to the patient, the table will drop a fraction of an inch. The drop pieces assist the thrust while minimizing the force used for the adjustment allowing for a very gentle, yet highly effective, treatment.
