Common Chiropractic Techniques

At The Chiropractic Health Center, our doctors are trained in various chiropractic techniques, in addition to standard adjustments. Depending on a patient’s condition or specific needs, one or more of the following chiropractic techniques may be utilized. These include:

  • The Diversified Technique is the most common chiropractic technique, involving quick, shallow thrusts. This often leads to the “popping noise” associated with chiropractic care.
  • The Activator Method is a chiropractic technique utilizing a handheld device for lighter, quicker, and highly targeted spinal adjustments.
  • The Thompson Technique is a chiropractic technique that involves lying on a special table with slightly raised segments called drop pieces that can be lowered to relieve pressure on joints.
  • Cox Flexion/Distraction is a chiropractic technique in which spinal traction and forward flexion forces are applied. This is often used in the treatment of disc herniations and other spinal disorders. It also can help to improve spinal joint mobility.
There's no better time to start feeling better.
