Diversified is the most common spine manipulation technique used by chiropractors. Diversified is characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. It is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.
Activator is a small handheld spring-loaded instrument, which delivers a controlled and reproducible impulse to the spine. It is a low force technique that can be used instead of or in addition to a manual adjustment.
PST is a system of analyzing and adjusting the spine that combines previously understood concepts with a very simplified, logical and effective procedure to correct the vertebral subluxation complex.
Palmer Package is a combination of Diversified, Gonstead, PST and Thompson adjusting techniques.
Technique emphasizes optimal posture and spinal alignment as the primary goals of chiropractic care while simultaneously documenting improvements in pain, functional based outcomes, and patient health and well being.
SOT is a method of chiropractic care designed to normalize the relationship between the foundation of the spine (sacrum) and the top of the spine (occiput). It is a low force technique using blocks to help normalize the activity.
The Thompson Technique is a full-spine chiropractic adjusting technique that uses high-velocity, low amplitude, adjusting procedure using a drop table to assist in the correction of vertebral subluxation. Using the drop table allows the doctor to use less force, decreasing doctor fatigue and making it easier on the patient.
Gonstead represents the ultimate standard in “hands on” spinal adjusting and remains the leader in chiropractic techniques. Adhering to the definition of true chiropractic as defined by D. D. Palmer, the founder of Chiropractic in 1895.
Impulse is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than manual chiropractic adjustments. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment. Controlled Force Impulse has three different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages.

Cryotherapy, more commonly known as cold therapy, is a healing technique that exposes the body to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. The therapy helps muscles recover after strenuous activity, injury or surgical procedure.
MyoVision Static EMG A Surface EMG is similar to an EKG for the heart. It uses a hand held instrument that is placed over the spinal muscles of the neck and back to identify the exact location of abnormal muscle activity.
Interferential Electrical Stimulation is a therapeutic treatment to aid in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing. Tiny amounts of electrical impulses are induced into the tissues in the vicinity of the injury. Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, a low-frequency stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural painkillers to help relieve pain.
Motion palpation is a diagnostic technique used by the doctor of chiropractic to locate joint dysfunction within the spinal column and extremities.
Neuromuscular Therapy is a highly specialized type of soft tissue therapy designed to relieve pain and return injured tissues to normal function. It utilizes specific, targeted soft tissue treatment, flexibility stretching and self-care to eliminate the causes of most muscular aches and pains.
