Presentation Transcript
palmer package techniques
“Palmer Package” Techniques:
  • Diversified
  • Gonstead
  • Thompson
  • Palmer Upper Cervical Specific/Toggle Recoil/HIO
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
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
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
Applied Kinesiology (AK):
  • Tonal approach developed by Dr. Goodheart
  • Use of muscle testing in analysis
  • Incorporation of nutrition, other complementary procedures
  • 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
Chiropractic Bio-Physics (CBP):
  • Full-spine structural approach developed by D. Harrison
  • Similar in many ways to Pettibon
cox flexion distraction
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
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
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
“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
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
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
DNFT (Directional Non-Force Technique):
  • Tonal approach developed by Van Rumpt
  • Utilizes leg check and vertebral/muscle challenges to localize subluxations
  • 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
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
