Techniques that the chiropractor may utilize in your care include:
Gonstead and Diversified – These are the two most widely used manual adjusting techniques.
Thompson – This technique uses a specialized table designed to gently "drop" to perform an adjustment.
Flexion/Distraction – This type of traction is particularly effective in the treatment of lumbar disc disorders.
Activator – A hand-held adjusting tool that delivers a very gentle, low-force thrust that is especially useful for infants or elderly patients.
Rehabilitative Exercise – Patients are frequently given a safe and simple, yet highly effective home exercise program.
