DIVERSIFIED TECHNIQUE

Add some info about this item

A special hand arrangement called a “pisiform contact” is used to deliver a specific thrust at the right place and the right time.

After identifying which vertebra have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual trust is applied to free a “stuck” spinal joint.

At Klemek 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, orthopedic tests and motor/sensory aspects of your spine.

Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the spinal joints move as you turn and bend. Or, a leg length 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, and depth and angle that are used to 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 the 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.

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

THOMPSON TECHNIQUE

Add some info about this item

Individual drop pieces give way, reducing the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.

Thompson Terminal Point Technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.

What patients often notice first is segmental “drop” table. Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along our table surface support each area of your spine until the thrust is delivered. Then, each drop piece gently gives way, reducing the amount of energy needed to move the specific spinal segment.

ACTIVATOR TECHNIQUE

Add some info about this item

Activator instrument: the hand-held instrument delivers a precise repeatable force at just the right angle.

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.

The instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistently low-force, high-speed thrust.

Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.

WEBSTER TECHNIQUE

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy and recognize this area of expertise through Webster Certification.

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.

Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.

Dr. Larry Webster, founder of ICPA, Logan practitioner and Life College instructor, developed the Webster Technique in response to his daughter, Lucinda's birth to her daughter, Shannon. Dr. Webster was present at her long and arduous birth and although he adjusted her during the birth, he felt that chiropractic could have a bigger impact in labor with a more specific approach to the pelvis. 

After this personal experience with his daughter’s birth, Dr. Webster strove to develop an adjustment “for laboring women to help with the ease of birth." He felt that there must be a more specific way of addressing subluxations throughout pregnancy that would contribute to safer, easier births for the mother.

Shortly after, Dr. Webster was caring for a family whose mother was pregnant and also presenting breech. He applied his newly discovered approach in hopes of an easier delivery than his daughter had. He saw her once per week for several weeks and they noticed that her baby turned vertex in time for delivery. 

Dr. Webster began teaching other chiropractors this adjustment. These doctors reported that when their patient's babies were not in an optimal position, these babies were turning vertex as well. Thus the title: “Webster Breech Turning Technique” later to be called the "Webster In-Utero Constraint Technique" by Drs. Anrig and Forrester.

When his daughter, Pamela, was pregnant, he insisted that she get regular chiropractic care throughout pregnancy and mailed her a video of his technique to show her chiropractor. She also showed it to her OB, who was quite interested in the pelvic biomechanics and the chiropractic perspective. He too encouraged her to see her chiropractor regularly for this technique knowing this was out of his obstetric scope.

CRANIAL ADJUSTMENT

Add some more info about this item...

Misalignments of the cranial bones might lead to a wealth of health conditions. Individuals with dyslexia, learning disabilities, motion sickness, headaches, vision changes, concussion, have reported improvement with cranial corrections. One of the most probable reason for cranial subluxations is trauma from falls, accidents or sporting activities, including minor tumbles, bumps, and knocks from formative years, a complicated delivery, or even pre-natal stress. Severe psychological and mental anxiety or toxins in the environment may also affect the stability of the cranial bones and related tissues known as the meninges. Specific brain centers, the brain stem, cranial nerves, spinal nerves, blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow may very well be impacted. Clinical research demonstrates the following problems connected with subluxations of these cranial bones.

What is it?
Cranial Adjustment Therapy is a magnificent science and art was almost abandoned in our contemporary world, nonetheless was providentially rediscovered by Osteopaths and Chiropractors early in 1900s. There is an abundance of scientific research papers showing that in the event that your cranial bones are out of their most appropriate position (locked or subluxated), your physical and psychological health will be affected. Gentle adjustments to these bones bring them back in balance.

How it Works
Your skull isn’t a solitary bone but comprises of 22 cranial bones. You’ve got eight bigger bones that shield your brain and fourteen smaller bones comprise the lower front of your skull. These cranial bones don’t merge but remain discrete and independent throughout life; each bone even features its own distinctive movement. The areas in between the bones are known as sutures(lines) and are filled up with connective tissue, nerves, and blood vessels. Proper movement of your cranial bones is essential for health.

The sphenoid bone is brought up foremost as it apparently has the most effects on emotional and physical well being. The sphenoid make up a significant portion of the bottom of the skull, stores the pituitary gland and influences the movement of cerebrospinal fluid, that is manufactured in the human brain and is essential to central nervous system health and fitness. Our cranial adjustments usually hold or stay in place for extended periods of time. Occasionally a cranial bone may require more than one correction if there happens to be was a harsh head trauma, multiple shock to the system like bumps and knocks or even dehydration. The end result is often a healthier person, both emotionally and physically.
