Diversified Technique is the most widely used and accepted chiropractic manipulative technique. It is the primary technique taught at Cleveland Chiropractic College and other Chiropractic schools across the country. Diversified technique is characterized by a very precise high velocity, low amplitude manual thrust. Its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment to the spine. It is a highly useful technique to restore joint dysfunction.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) Wedges:
Sacro Occipital Technic (SOT) is a comprehensive, gentle and innovative technique of Chiropractic. It is so named because of the relationship between the Sacrum (base of the spine) and the Occiput (base of the skull).
One of the functions of the sacrum is to pump Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) from the base of the spine back up the spinal canal to the brain and throughout the nervous system. CSF acts as the circulatory system of the brain and spinal cord.
The pelvis forms the foundational support of the human skeleton. It supports the upper body right up to the skull, and enables us to transfer our weight to our legs. The spine holds our body upright, supports all of our organs and provides anchor points for our muscles. It also protects our nervous system.
Thompson Adjusting Drop Table:
This chiropractic method uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. These segments are propped up a fraction of an inch so that when the thrust is delivered, the table drops slightly, assisting the thrust while minimizing the force used for the adjustment. Cavitation of the joint may or may not occur.
