Since each and every individual is unique, the same adjustment is not used with everyone. With NeuroLogic Chiropractic Care, a wide variety of chiropractic techniques are used. There are many factors one must consider while performing adjustments on a patient. One patient may require a light, low force technique such as Activator or impulse. Others may need a full spine approach, in which a high velocity, low amplitude thrust is delivered and joint cavitation is obtained. Below is a description of the various chiropractic techniques utilized in the office.
GONSTEAD & DIVERSIFIED
After a complete analysis, the Gonstead chiropractor is ready to deliver any necessary adjustments. 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. It is the goal of your Gonstead doctor to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.
The misalignment of a joint not only occurs in the spine, but can manifest in the extremities of the human body. An extremity adjustment can be performed on the TMJ, shoulders, elbows, wrist, knee, ankle, and more. The adjustments can be used to reduce scar tissue, reduce tight muscles, help recover from an injury, re-educate the joint motion and restore normal function to the joint.
IMPULSE NEUROMECHANICAL TECHNIQUE
This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device which produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body. Impulse is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than manual adjustments. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment. Impulse has three different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages. The thrust frequency is specifically turned to the natural frequency of the body’s joints, muscles, and nerves to optimize results. The controlled low-force thrust of Impulse makes treatments comfortable.
The Activator technique has published clinical and scientific peer-reviewed papers beyond that of most chiropractic analytical treatment procedures. The Activator is a mechanical low force, manually-assisted adjusting instrument that is recognized and covered by insurance. It is safe and easy to use with patients of all ages.
Thompson Technique uses an adjusting table with a pneumatically driven, segmented drop system, which quickly lowers the section of the patient’s body corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted. The doctor thrusts at high speed, using minimal force, because while the thrust initiates movement, the fast drop carries the joint through the remainder of its range of motion. Leg length checks, palpation, X-rays, and other appropriate tests are used by the Thompson practitioner in determining where to adjust.
Chiropractic care has yielded great results for decades in not only reducing back pain, but improving overall quality of life during ones pregnancy. When a women has the job of creating another life, pain should be the last thing affecting her nervous system. In addition to reducing pain, the Webster technique has shown positive resulting in promoting proper positioning of the baby for delivery.
Cox® Technic is research-documented spinal manipulation to relieve lower back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, and a host of spinal related conditions including disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post-surgical continued pain, and pregnancy related back pain. Cox® Technic’s developer, Dr. James M. Cox, has insisted for nearly 50 years on documenting the science of this non-surgical alternative approach to back pain relief in the hands of well-trained back specialists.
