Full Spine/ Diversified
This is a hands onapproach that focuses on the subluxation. It corrects the biomechanicaldysfunction of the spine or joint, where the adjustments given are done withoutany assistance from table drops or instruments. It is the sole feel of motionand of palpation that determines where the adjustment needs to be made.Duringthis adjustment a popping sound may be heard, coming from the joint that wasadjusted. Using specific lines of drives or vectors, the correction can be madewith little to no force.
Assisted techniquesinclude those that use table drops (ie: Thompson Technique) as well asinstrument adjustment techniques (ie: Activator Technique). These types oftechniques are much less forceful but still able to correct the spinalsubluxation and correct the biomechanical dysfunction.These styles of adjustingare typically used on elderly and pediatric patients or those who are terrifiedof the “crack and pop” that you hear with a manual adjustment.
This technique is specializedfor patients suffering from disc issues. By gently distracting and flexing thelumbar spine, we are able to increase joint space and disc space. Some commonsymptoms among others that are treated with flexion/ distraction are:
● disc herniation
● slipped disc
● ruptured disc
● facet syndrome
The focus of thistechnique is the non-surgical reduction of neuro-compressive disc and non-discal lesions of the spine.
