Diversified Technique

Woman getting chiropractic diversified adjustmentAt Nedd Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we use an adjusting style commonly referred to as “Diversified.” First, an analysis of your spine and/or extremities is performed. This can initially involve a case history and X-ray pictures.

Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the spinal and/or extremity joints move as you turn and bend. Otherwise, a leg check or muscle testing may be performed, to uncover any subluxations in the spine and/or extremity joints.

With the malposition of one or more spinal and/or extremity bones identified, a specific manual thrust is administered. The direction, speed, depth and angle that are used is the result of years of experience, practice and a thorough understanding of joint mechanics.

The energy delivered during the thrust may produce a slight “popping” sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. This sound may be interesting, but is not a guide as to the value or effectiveness of the adjustment. That sound is simply gas escaping from the joint as the joint is realigned and decompressed. It is not bones “cracking” or breaking!

While improving spinal biomechanics can reduce nervous system interferences, virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to help restore proper range of motion.
