Chiropractic techniques USED at Suess Family Chiropractic
Diversified technique is the High Velocity/Low Amplitude (HVLA) adjustment that is most commonly used throughout the field of chiropractic. As the name implies, the Diversified Technique can be used to treat many of the joints in the body and is the primary technique used by the doctors in our office.
This low-force technique utilizes a specialized table that is designed to induce flexion in the spine. The technique, originally developed by Dr. James M. Cox, is based on the application of small, precise amounts of flexion distraction to the part of the spine experiencing disc compression or herniation. As the vertebrae in question are gently pulled away from each other, negative pressure draws the herniated or bulging disc back into position, relieving nerve pressure and pain and moving much-needed fluids back into the disc.
The Thompson Technique, or "Drop Table Technique" utilizes a specific function of the adjusting table in which a thrust is applied to a specific area of the spine. The Thompson technique derives its name from the founder, Dr. Clay Thompson, who fully patented this method in 1957. The main areas that are treated are the pelvic, dorsal and lumbar regions. This method has grown to be loved because it is not painful and uses the least force, because the thrust brings about movement whereas the fast drop will help the joint go through the rest of the required motion.
WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
From the Traditional Medical perspective, acupuncture is the manipulation of the body’s energy through the insertion of fine needles at specified points on the body with the goal of helping the body to heal and strengthen. This energy is referred to as Qi (pronounced Chee). When illness occurs it is an external manifestation of weak or disordered Qi.
Acupuncture helps to re-order and strengthen the Qi and thereby eliminate the underlying condition and the symptoms. Acupuncture is part of an ancient medical system that has been practiced for thousands of years, performed by inserting fine needles into specified points on the body. These points have different effects on the Qi and needling a particular point will effect a particular result. Generally, a number of points are selected based on the particular condition and the individual’s general constitution.
WHAT DOES ACUPUNCTURE TREAT?
The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued its findings regarding acupuncture in a publication titled “Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials.” It states, generally speaking, acupuncture treatment is safe if performed properly by a well trained practitioner. Unlike many drugs, it is non-toxic, and adverse reactions are minimal.
It notes there are numerous conditions for which acupuncture has been shown to be effective. Those conditions include:
- Low Back Pain
- Restricted joint motion
- Muscle spasm
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Stimulation of Immune System
- Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
