Presentation Transcript

Palmer package techniques l.jpg
“Palmer Package” Techniques:

  • Diversified

  • Gonstead

  • Thompson

  • Palmer Upper Cervical Specific/Toggle Recoil/HIO

Diversified l.jpg

  • Full-spine segmental approach

  • Mostly two-hand application of dynamic thrust (HVLA- High-Velocity, Low-Amplitude)

  • Patient is prone, supine, sitting; usually no use of drops on adjusting table

Gonstead l.jpg

  • Full-spine segmental approach developed by C.S. Gonstead of Wisconsin- Mt. Horeb

  • single and two-hand technique

  • Patient is prone, sitting, side-lying, knee-chest position; pelvic bench, cervical chair, knee-chest tables

  • No drops used

  • “Nervoscope” and x-ray analysis of spine

Thompson l.jpg

  • Full-spine segmental approach developed by C. Thompson

  • Utilizes diversified procedures on an adjusting table equipped with drop sections

  • Patient usually prone on the table

Activator l.jpg

  • Full-spine segmental approach developed by Lee & Fuhr

  • Uses hand-held, spring-powered adjusting instrument

  • Utilizes leg-checks, postural challenges to localize subluxation

Sacro occipital technique sot l.jpg
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT):

  • Tonal/segmental approach developed by M. Dejarnette

  • One aspect of approach is facilitating CSF flow

  • Use of pelvic “blocking” procedures

  • Advanced procedures include cranial adjusting

  • PCC “elective”

Logan basic technique l.jpg
Logan (Basic) Technique:

  • Full-spine postural approach

  • Use of sustained low/light force applied manually to the sacrum to level the sacral base

  • PCC elective

Applied kinesiology ak l.jpg
Applied Kinesiology (AK):

  • Tonal approach developed by Dr. Goodheart

  • Use of muscle testing in analysis

  • Incorporation of nutrition, other complementary procedures

Pettibon l.jpg

  • Full-spine structural approach developed by B. Pettibon

  • Analytical use of x-ray

  • Variety of procedures utilized, including dynamic thrust procedures, spinal traction, specific exercises, upper-cervical adjusting

Chiropractic bio physics cbp l.jpg
Chiropractic Bio-Physics (CBP):

  • Full-spine structural approach developed by D. Harrison

  • Similar in many ways to Pettibon

Cox flexion distraction l.jpg
Cox (Flexion-Distraction):

  • Low-back disc treatment approach developed by J. Cox

  • Utilizes manual or motorized traction applied to lumbar region to reduce bulging of lumbar and lumbosacral intervertebral discs

Motion palpation l.jpg
Motion Palpation:

  • A full-spine segmental technique developed by H. Gilletand a form of spinal analysis

  • Spinal segments examined manually to localize specific joints and directions of motion that are restricted/fixated/hypomobile

  • The MP technique also uses adjusting procedures to restore motion (mobilization, HVLA, etc…)

Nimmo receptor tonus l.jpg
Nimmo Receptor-Tonus:

  • Full-spine, extremity soft-tissue approach developed by R. Nimmo

  • Analyzes and treats the muscle component of subluxation using generally manual treatment directed at “trigger points” and other areas of disturbed muscle function

Network spinal analysis l.jpg
“Network” Spinal Analysis

  • Full-spine tonal approach developed by D. Epstein

  • Utilizes an integration of several different techniques to achieve end result of “clearing” patient of neural dysfunction

Best bio energetic synchronization technique l.jpg
BEST (Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique):

  • Tonal approached developed by M.T. Morter

  • Integrates chemical and emotional components with the structural to “clear” the patient of neural dysfunction; an “energy” approach

Net neuro emotional technique l.jpg
NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique)

  • Tonal approach developed by S. Walker

  • Analysis using muscle testing procedures to identify past or present emotional stress links to persistent structural patterns/subluxations

Dnft directional non force technique l.jpg
DNFT (Directional Non-Force Technique):

  • Tonal approach developed by Van Rumpt

  • Utilizes leg check and vertebral/muscle challenges to localize subluxations

Toftness l.jpg

  • Tonal/segmental approach developed by I.N. Toftness

  • Analyzes for subluxation by attempting to identify segments emitting specific frequency of electromagnetic radiation

  • Use of device (radiometer) to detect subluxated levels

  • Light-force stylus used to adjust

Upper cervical specific approaches l.jpg
Upper Cervical Specific approaches:

  • Palmer Upper Cervical/Toggle Recoil/HIO- BJ Palmer

  • Grostic

  • NUCCA- Gregory, Dickholtz

  • AO (Atlas Orthogonality)- R.Sweat

  • Blair

  • Mears

  • Kale

  • Life Cervical
