Diversified Chiropractic Technique

About the Technique

At Dotto Family Chiropractic, we use an adjusting style commonly referred to as “Diversified.”
 
First, an analysis of your spine is performed. This can initially involve a case history and X-ray pictures of your spine.
 
A special hand arrangement called a “pisiform contact” is used to deliver a specific thrust at the right place and the right time.

Subsequent Visits

Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the spinal joints move as you turn and bend. Or, a leg check may be performed, to uncover an imbalance in the neck or lower spine.
 
With the malposition of one or more spinal 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 spinal 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.

The Benefits of Improving Spinal Biomechanics

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.
