Our Adjusting Techniques

We have a variety of techniques that we utilize. The traditional Gonstead technique is a staple in chiropractic offices around the world. The Thompson table utilizes a drop mechanism making the adjustment less forceful. We also use the Activator and a newer lesser force technique called the Impulse instrument that Dr. Wright is very excited about.

It is based on new research from Australia and Holland and uses an adjusting instrument that uses very quick light thrusts to the spine. It uses very light and quick thrusts and patients that may not like or respond to traditional adjustments…..really favor this new adjusting instrument. It is excellent for the elderly and very young where the traditional adjustment may not be indicated. We will use the technique that works the best for you, the patient.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
  • Activator Methods®: This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. Read more about Activator »
  • Diversified: After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. Read more Diversified »
  • Gonstead: This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results. Read more Gonstead »
  • Thompson: Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine. Read more Thompson »
