what will the adjustment be like
What will the adjustment be like?
  • We do a revolutionary technique in our office called Koren Specific Technique, or KST.
  • This is probably very different than what you may have experienced in the past.
  • KST is very gentle, but very powerful.
  • There is no cracking, popping, or twisting.
  • In fact, most adjustments are done standing, instead of laying on the table.
how do you know what to adjust
How do you know what to adjust?
  • We use a form of muscle testing (like Applied Kinesiology) to determine what we need to adjust.
  • While you are standing, you will feel the Doctor tap or swipe an area on your back, and then feel our thumbs sliding down the back of your head.
  • We are feeling for one side of your occiput (the base of your skull) to drop a bit after we have tapped or swiped in a specific area.
what is the tool you use
WHAT IS THE TOOL YOU USE?
  • We adjust using a tool called the Arthrostim, which gently taps the bone into place, versus manually adjusting.
  • It resonates at a frequency that activates the mechanoreceptors (which allow your joint to move) but not the nociceptors (which sense pain in the joint).
  • The Arthrostim allows us to easily and comfortably adjust any joint that we need to, including your cranial bones.
what can i expect after my adjustment
What can I expect after my adjustment?
  • Throughout the day, your body will be processing your adjustment.
  • Most patients feel very relaxed initially and may even need to take a nap; some feel a surge of energy, and others don’t feel an immediate change.
  • Some patients experience some soreness after their adjustment, and you may feel a little worse before you feel better.
  • Make sure to drink plenty of water to help your body flush out the toxins being released by your body.
retracing
Retracing
  • This is a phenomena that occurs with other chiropractic techniques, but is very prevalent with KST.
  • Your body is in a state of healing while you are under care.
  • You may notice sensations in other areas of your body, or notice symptoms that you weren’t currently experiencing. This is normal and expected.
  • Sometimes, you feel worse before you feel better. This feeling will pass.
care after your adjustment
Care after your adjustment
  • You may feel slightly sore, which should be no more than trying a new exercise.
  • Normal water intake should be half of your body weight in ounces, per day.
  • To help the healing process, we recommend that you drink more water than usual.
  • You may also apply a thin layer of Biofreeze to the affected area. There are sample packets in your Welcome Bag!
  • While applying ice to sore areas for 20 minutes per hour is good, we recommend that you do not use heat.
when will i see results
When will I see results?
  • Every individual heals at a different rate.
  • How quickly you feel better depends on how severe your issue is and how long it has been in place, as well as your overall state of health.
  • The first two weeks are like a roller coaster ride, sometimes you’ll be better and sometimes you’ll be worse.
  • Typically, we do see improvement within the first 2-4 weeks of care.
when do i have to come back
When do I have to come back?
  • Typically, we do like to see you more often within the first 2-4 weeks of care.
  • We have found that more frequent visits initially is the most effective at changing the pattern your spine has developed.
  • As your muscles, ligaments and tendons heal, the bones tend to stay in proper position and we need to see you less.
  • We will continually modify your progress and adjust your visit frequency.
