Thompson Technique is a chiropractic technique that uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. The object of the drop is to distract/open up the joint during the adjustment. The drop pieces assists the thrust by moving with the adjustment. This minimizes the force required for the adjustment.
Koren Specific Technique (KST) is the most utilized technique in the office. It is a chiropractic technique that is very different from a traditional chiropractic adjustment. It is gentle yet very powerful. Corrections are administered using an adjusting instrument called an ArthroStim that allows for precise adjusting. There is no twisting, cracking or popping that occurs with this type of an adjustment. Therefore, all ages benefit from KST, from newborns to elderly and everyone in between. There are many ways that our bodies communicate with us and with KST we can pinpoint the priorities in your body and adjust accordingly; never doing too much or too little.
NIMMO or Receptor Tonus Technique is a soft-tissue technique that focuses on the fact that muscles are responsible for causing abnormal joint function. NIMMO addresses muscular problems, usually called trigger points, by applying pressure to a muscle on the point of imbalance for 7-10 seconds. This allows the muscle to relax and re-acquire its normal resting length. This procedure allows the bone(s), to which the muscle(s) attach, to move normally to restore proper joint function.
