Diversified Technique Adjustments
909 Broadway #10
Yankton, SD 57078
Manual Spinal Treatment
This is a widely used type of chiropractic manipulation/adjustment that includes most of the procedures taught in chiropractic institutions. This technique is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques and is the one probably most familiar to patients. The Diversified manipulation/adjustment entails a high velocity, low-amplitude thrust delivered by hand and possibly with assistance from a table or block. This usually results in a cavitation of a joint (quick, shallow thrusts that cause the popping noise often associated with a chiropractic manipulation/adjustment). As the name implies, the Diversified Technique can be used to treat many of the joints in the body and is one of the primary techniques used in our office.
The old addage of "I went to my chiropractor and he put me back in place" is not what happens with the adjustment. Joints rarely "go out of place." Instead, the adjustment is designed to restore normal joint and neurologic function to the area that is being addressed. With restored function comes pain relief and decrease in symptoms.
