Chiropractic Techniques

Thompson Technique

The Thompson Technique is a method of adjustment that involves analyzing the length of the legs. This technique uses a ‘drop table’ for adjustment, where a gentle thrust is applied to the joints, which in turn, sets the drop piece into motion and targets the specific joint or tissue. After completing a leg check analysis, your chiropractor will determine the type of misalignment – cervical, pelvic, etc,- and then adjust your body using a combination of multiple thrusts on various joints.

Diversified Technique

This is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques and is the one most familiar to patients. The diversified adjustment entails a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust that usually results in a joint cavitation (quick, shallow thrust often accompanied by a popping noise – a chiropractic adjustment). As the name implies, the diversified technique can be used to adjust many of the joints in the body.
