Methods that I use are Palmer Package and Activator. I will adjust a patient using the technique that they respond best to. I always do some muscle work with all of my adjustments.
The Palmer Package- This method uses a variety of techniques including Diversified, Thompson, Gonstead, and Toggle Recoil.
With Diversified, an analysis of your spine is performed. Once I have identified the displaced spinal bone(s), a specific manual thrust is administered.
The Thompson technique combines a system of chiropractic analysis and a way to minimize the amount of energy exerted to adjust the spine. This is completed using a special table with drop-away sections.
The Gonstead technique allows your spine to be adjusted without twisting or rotating your neck. This is done while you assume a comfortable kneeling position or while you lay on your side, depending on where the vertebrae are misaligned.
The Toggle Recoil method occurs while you are in a relaxed state, usually lying on your side. A high-speed, low-force thrust will be delivered to the upper bones of your spine. This will allow the body to use the energy as it sees fit to reset the spinal joints.
The Activator Method- This method uses a device as an alternative method to manual manipulation of the spine and extremity joints. This is a low-force technique and works great for kids and people with osteoporosis.
We offer Myofascial release which is a 20 minute massage in an area where you need it the most. Some insurance companies will cover myofascial release.
Kinesio Taping often compliments an adjustment by keeping the adjustment relaxed or supported. This method can also provide an alternative solution for your aches.
