What Are Chiropractic Techniques?

Chiropractic care brings relief to millions of people throughout the country. However, depending on the issue that you are facing you will find that different chiropractic techniques work better on different patients and different needs. The right technique will make a world of difference.

Basic Chiropractic Techniques

Here are some of the main chiropractic techniques that may be used.

Gonstead Technique

This method is designed to be highly precise and accurate. The goal here is to adjust subluxations that occur in the body which may be triggering a wide range of problems in the body, from headache to tingling in the fingers.

Activator Technique

This type of treatment uses a small hand-held instrument to deliver small impulse forces to the spine. The main goal is to restore motion to the vertebra and joints.

Flexicon Distraction

This technique is used on the lumbar spine and focuses on increasing spinal motion while relieving disc bulges and herniations. It is a gentle, non-force adjusting procedure that works with the natural design.

Thompson Technique

Also called the drop table technique, this is just what it sounds like. A specialized table is set and will collapse as pressure is applied, dropping the body and generating force that will adjust the spine.

Diversified Technique

This uses short, quick thrusts over joints one at a time to restore motion, flexibility, and reduce pain.
