Common Techniques

Diversified
This is the most common non-specific technique used by most general practice chiropractors. It is a technique which may utilise more than one method. It will involve spinal adjustment, and generally results in a popping sound.

Drop Techniques
A specific technique for adjustment of the full spine on a special table. The adjusting table with a segmented drop system quickly lowers the section of the patientís body corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted.
The chiropractor's thrusts (using minimal force) initiates movement, and the fast drop of the table carries the joint through the remainder of its range of motion.

Blocking Techniques (SOT)
Whilst the patient is lying down, wedges are skilfully placed in certain positions under the pelvis. The pelvis is thus balanced gently and naturally, using the patient's own bodyweight.

Activator Technique
Activator technique is a gentle, low-force program of chiropractic care. The Activator technique uses a unique system of administering spinal adjustments using Activator analysis and an Activator instrument to initiate the correct movement of the vertebra in a predetermined direction.

Dry Needling
This technique combines modern western Trigger Point theories with traditional Chinese Acupuncture. Fine acupuncture needles are inserted into muscles to stimulate trigger points in the muscle.
