Palmer Diversified

Diversified Chiropractic Technique, or DCT, involves application of “a short (low-amplitude), quick (high-velocity) thrust over restricted joints (one at a time) with the goal of restoring normal range of motion in the joint.". www.chiroeco.com/diversified-technique/amp/

Cox Flexion/Traction

Cox Flexion Disraction Technique: An easy distraction (stretching) adjustment of the spine to realize the following advantages for the patient with back or extremity pain: 1. Increase the intervertebral disc space opening 2. Decrease the pressure within the disc to aid healing of disc herniation 3. Increase the size of the nerve openings in the spine to reduce pinched nerves 4. Revitalize range of motion to spinal segments https://www.coxchirocare.com/doctor/chiropractor

SOT

What is SOT? Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) was originally formulated by Major Bertrand DeJarnette (The Major) who was a Doctor (chiropractor and osteopath) and Engineer in the 1920’s. The Major was inspired to go beyond simple spinal adjusting and developed methods of correcting the Cranium, Pelvis, Extremities and Organs. This study brought about a system of adjusting patterns in the body, not just single body parts. The most significant pattern was the relationship between the sacrum and occiput (which became the name of the technique). An important distinction of SOT is the use of indicators. Each adjustment has a sign or signal that the we use to know when and where to adjust. For example, muscle tension at the knee may indicate the pelvis needs correction, and connective tissue fibers at the base of the skull (called occipital fibers) indicate different vertebra in the back or spine may be in need of an adjustment. This also tells us on the next visit if the correction has been completely or marginally effective. From these indicators, we design a different adjustment set on each visit, listening to the body each time. It takes study to master this method of care, but it makes for an effective, precise adjustment without relying exclusively on x-rays. Https://soto-usa.com/what-is-sot/

Webster's the technique of pregnancy

The Webster Technique is a chiropractic technique designed to relieve the musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint. Formerly known as Webster's In-Utero Constraint Technique or Webster's Breech Turning Technique, the Webster Technique was developed by Dr Larry Webster in 1978 and has been described in several texts and professional publications. In addition, the technique is taught in several chiropractic colleges and postgraduate chiropractic education programs. Performance of the Webster Technique involves analysis of the functional and spatial relationship of the bones of the pelvis, and manual correction of aberrant biomechanics through the employment of a light-force chiropractic adjustment of the sacrum https://www.jmptonline.org/article/S0161-4754(02)00015-5/fulltext

Vojta

Developed by Vaclav Vojta, the Vojta method is well known as reflex locomotion and can be divided into reflex crawling and reflex rolling (phases 1 and 2). By stimulating special reflex points, the physiotherapist can trigger these motor patterns. Reflex crawling is performed in a prone position, whereas reflex rolling is induced from a supine (phase 1) and side-lying (phase 2) position. During this stimulation of motor patterns, both sides of the paravertebral muscles are activated and the spine is elongated. The motor patterns can be repeated as often as needed https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5332993/

Craniosacral therapy

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics. Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams - about the weight of a nickel - practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. https://www.upledger.com/therapies/faq.php Webster's Technique of Pregnancy

Thompson terminal point

Thompson Terminal Point Technique Thompson Technique is a specific chiropractic technique that was discovered and developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson. Thompson Technique uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. With Thompson Technique, the table segments can be cocked up a fraction of an inch, so when the thrust is delivered, the table will drop. One of the benefits of Thompson technique is that the drop pieces assist the thrust therefore minimizing the force used for the adjustment. The majority of the spinal adjusting utilizing the Thompson Technique has the patient lying prone(face down). The Leg length analysis concept is another important aspect of the Thompson Technique. This is a method used to determine imbalance in the length of the legs when observed with the patient in a prone position ( face down) on the table Source: Cooperstein R, Gleberzon BJ. Technique systems in chiropractic. St. Louis: Churchill Livingstone; 2004, p243-4. APPLIED KINESIOLOGY AK Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. AK, a non-invasive system of evaluating body function that is unique in the healing arts, has become a dynamic movement in health care in its relatively short existence. The combined terms “applied” and “kinesiology” describe the basis of this system, which is the use of manual muscle testing to evaluate body function through the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system. Treatments may involve specific joint manipulation or mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian and acupuncture skills, clinical nutrition, dietary management, counseling skills, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures.

Activator

ACTIVATOR The Activator Method chiropractic technique is a type of manual manipulation treatment used by chiropractors to treat various types of back and neck pain, as well as extremity complaints. This treatment method uses the Activator adjusting instrument, which is an alternative to traditional manipulation utilizing a high velocity, low amplitude (HVLA) thrust, such as the Diversified technique. Next to the Diversified technique, the Activator adjusting instrument is reported to be one of the more common therapeutic interventions used by chiropractors. According to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, about half of full-time American chiropractors have used the Activator Method in their practices.1 The Activator Method is also commonly used in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.2 https://www.spine-health.com/treatment/chiropractic/activator-method-chiropractic-technique
