Techniques

Diversified Technique

Diversified is a high velocity low amplitude form of adjusting.  In other words, it uses light quick pressures to induce motion in a joint.  Its main objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of the joints in the body.  This technique is most widely used among practicing chiropractors and can be utilized in the joints of the arms and legs as well as the spine to promote proper joint motion.

Logan Basic Technique

Basic is considered one of the gentlest, lowest force chiropractic techniques ever used. It uses a light sustained force exerted against a specific contact point near the sacrum at the base of the spine. Other light pressures further up along the spine and muscles of the back are used in conjunction with this initial contact to release deep muscle tensions.  This technique’s gentle nature makes it safe for adults, infants, children, geriatric patients and even pregnant women.

Thompson Technique

Thompson technique is a high velocity low amplitude form of adjusting that utilizes drop plates within the adjusting table.  In other words, it uses quick light pressures to induce motion into the joint.  It is considered a low impact form of adjusting since the drop plates decrease the force necessary to induce movement.   As Newton’s first law states, an object in motion will stay in motion until it meets an equal and opposite force.  The plates release with minimal pressure, allowing gravity to help bring motion into the affected joint.

Therapies

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy (aka Light Therapy) uses healing light wavelengths to decrease pain and improve the healing process in a treated area.  It is helpful at relieving pain caused by inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, tendinopathy, osteoarthritis and other chronic joint disorders.  It also is shown to stimulate mitochondria within cells (the power generators) to improve cellular rejuvenation that is necessary for healing after an injury/surgery.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy uses sound wave frequencies to help in tissue healing and to reduce chronic pain in some patients.  It has thermal effects and non-thermal effects. Thermal effects are due to the absorption of sound waves. Non-thermal effects are from vibrations of the tissue causing microscopic air bubbles to form that stimulates cell membranes. This physical stimulation can enhance the cell-repair effects of the inflammatory response.   Ultrasound is often used for muscle as well as joint pain.
