Common techniques used for chiropractic adjustments
There are a few different techniques a chiropractor will use when performing adjustments on their patients. The technique used for each individual patient will depend on their particular situation and will be included in their treatment plan. It is possible for more than one technique to be used on a patient, as the ultimate goal is to treat the patient, so they no longer experience back pain. The list below contains common techniques that a chiropractor will utilize when treating their patients who have back problems.
This technique requires a patient to lie on their side while a chiropractor uses their hand to make adjustments to their lower back and pelvis area. The purpose of this technique is to minimize pain, loosen any stiff joints, and realign the joints to support proper back movement.
This technique requires a chiropractor to use a device that emits gentle impulses of light along specific points of the spine. The stimulation it provides helps minimize lower back pain and is commonly used for treating older patients.
This technique is used on patients who are experiencing problems that are directly related to their lumbar spine, e.g., scoliosis, joint pain, herniated discs, bulging discs, etc. The patient will need to lie down on a table specifically designed for this type of technique, allowing the chiropractor to manually manipulate the patient's back by performing the appropriate stretching motions to address their particular issue.
Drop table technique
This technique also uses a table that is specifically designed to accommodate this type of chiropractic treatment. A chiropractor treats the entire spine when using this technique, which works by lowering or dropping sections of the table once a certain area of the body has been treated until the entire spine has been properly adjusted.
This technique requires a chiropractor to use their hands to correct improper spinal alignment in their patients, helping restore their overall mobility. An accurate applied pressure of the hands is necessary to realign the spine and accordingly, allows the joints to once again be in their proper place.
