Chiropractic Adjustment Methods
Every doctor uses different techniques in their adjustments. The following are the techniques that we will use on you when you come to Edgerton Chiropractic Clinic.
The Gonstead Adjustment
The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible, addressing only the problem areas (areas of subluxation). Great care is taken to ensure a bio-mechanically correct position and precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible. The goal of a Gonstead Adjustment is to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.
Diversified Technique (DT)
DT is the most commonly used manipulative technique by chiropractors. Diversified is characterized by a high velocity low amplitude thrust. Diversified is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.
Thompson Drop Technique
The patient lies on a special table with sections that drop down. The chiropractor applies a quick thrust at the same time the section drops. The dropping of the table allows for a lighter adjustment without the twisting positions that can accompany other techniques.
