If you have spent any time in the office at all, you realize that I do not adjust you the same way every time you come to the office. You also realize that I do not adjust the same areas every time I adjust you. I’m sure you realize that there are many different areas I could adjust and that the combination of possibilities is enormous.
What you may not realize is that there are many different ways a subluxation could be adjusted depending on the chiropractic technique. Different techniques have different approaches to reduce subluxation or nerve damage. In fact, there are 3 major types of chiropractic adjustive techniques that most Chiropractors use.
One approach is based on the bone and its misaligned position in the spine. These techniques require us to actually move the spinal bone from where it is towards where it should be. Sometimes this type of adjustment is done by hand and sometimes with an instrument, like the ArthroStim™.
The second type of chiropractic technique is more muscle based. These approaches require us to place you in a very specific position prior to the adjustment so that the muscles are doing more work and we can, in turn, do less and accomplish the same result.
The third category of chiropractic technique is more subtle than either of these other approaches for people who require a very soft-touch approach. Even though bone is not moved in the adjustment directly, these techniques are very effective in assisting you to move the bone through your activities of daily living.
The technique I use is known as Koren Specific Technique or KST. It uses all three of these approaches when it comes to adjusting your spine. One of the biggest benefits of this technique is that I am able to talk to your body and find out what areas of the spine need to be adjusted and more importantly in what order. Like a combination lock, unless you have the proper combination of numbers the lock won’t open. My desire is to get the best results with the least strain on either of our parts.
