Chiropractic care involves removing interference of the nervous system. Chiropractors use adjustments to correct spinal misalignments. This can alleviate symptoms such as digestive disorders, stress and migraines.
Getting the right chiropractic treatment is important for your overall well-being. There are a range of techniques to adjust the spine to help alleviate symptoms. Which techniques a Chiropractor will use depends on the individual patient.
There are around 150 different chiropractic techniques that can be used, here are the four most common:
1. Activator technique
– the activator technique can be applied to treat everything from low back pain to headaches and migraines. A hand-held adjusting instrument is used to deliver a high velocity, low amplitude impulse into the vertebral segments of the spinal region. It is safe, effective and gentle for the patient.
– also known as the decompression manipulation or Cox Technique. It’s a popular method when treating face joint pain, scoliosis, disc herniations or other medical conditions. Patients tend to feel a gentle stretching motion when lying on the specially designed, adjustable treatment table.
3. Diversified technique
– This is a very precise, hands-on thrust aimed at restoring proper movement and the alignment of the spine.
4. S.O.T – Sacral Occipital Technique. This is a technique designed to restore a functional relationship between the sacrum (base of the spine) and the occiput (base of the skull). Special blocks are used in precise configuration. It is gentle and low impact.
