The diversified technique is a commonly-used method to adjust the spine, reduce imbalance and relieve pain.
First, a spinal analysis is performed. This generally includes a case history evaluation of the spine’s range of motion. We’ll evaluate through motion palpation, in which the spinal joints are felt while the patient turns and bends. A leg check, which uncovers imbalances in the neck or lower spine, may also be performed.
Once the analysis is complete and the issue identified, we administer a specific manual thrust in an effort to correct the malpositioned vertebrae or malfunctioning joint of the spinal bones. This may produce a slight popping sound due to the shifting of gas or fluids in the joint, but there is often no noise associated with the procedure.
