Major Chiropractic Technique Systems


Palmer package techniques l.jpg

“Palmer Package” Techniques:

  • Diversified

  • Gonstead

  • Thompson

  • Palmer Upper Cervical Specific/Toggle Recoil/HIO


Diversified l.jpg

“Diversified”:

  • 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

Gonstead

  • 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

Thompson:

  • 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

Activator:

  • 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

Pettibon:

  • 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

Toftness:

  • 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
