The ultimate objective of chiropractic care is to help the patient attain optimal health and function. Several different chiropractic adjustments or manipulations are available to help achieve this goal. The type of adjustment used will be based on the particular condition being treated as well as the preference of the doctor. Here are some of the different types of chiropractic adjustments that you can get from Dr. Clinton at Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center in Houston, TX.
1. Diversified Technique
In the diversified technique, we will use our hands to deliver a quick, precise thrust to the spine. This treatment is often used to treat acute back and neck pain. The diversified technique can also be used to treat other musculoskeletal conditions. However, this adjustment is not recommended for pregnant women or small children.
2. Gonstead Technique
The Gonstead technique is a specific type of chiropractic adjustment often used to treat low back and neck pain. This type of adjustment is known for being very precise. Our chiropractor will use his hands to apply gentle yet firm pressure to the spine.
3. Activator Methods Technique
The Activator Methods technique is a newer type of chiropractic adjustment that uses an instrument called an “activator” to deliver a precise, gentle force to the spine. This type of adjustment is often used on patients who are sensitive to manual adjustments. The activator is a small, hand-held device that delivers a gentle impulse to the spine. This type of adjustment is very safe and effective for all ages.
4. Thompson Terminal Point Technique
The Thompson Terminal Point technique is a type of chiropractic adjustment that uses a unique table that allows the doctor to deliver a quick, precise thrust to the spine. This type of adjustment is often used to treat back pain as well as neck pain. The Thompson Terminal Point technique is also used to treat other musculoskeletal conditions.
5. Sacro-Occipital Technique
The Sacro-Occipital technique is a type of chiropractic adjustment that uses gentle yet firm pressure on the spine.
