Understanding Chiropractic Techniques: How They Work

Chiropractic Technique

Chiropractic techniques are a form of complementary medicine that aims to alleviate pain and improve overall health by focusing on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a healthcare discipline that focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders. Chiropractic care is often used to treat conditions such as back pain, neck pain and other musculoskeletal injuries.

Chiropractors use a hands-on approach to manipulate or adjust the spine, joints, and soft tissues to relieve pain and improve mobility.

Techniques Used at The Innate Connection

At The Innate Connection, Chiropractors use various techniques to address patients’ individual needs. Some of the most common techniques used include:

Torque Release Technique (TRT)

What is Chiropractic Care

The torque Release Technique is particularly useful in treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches. TRT is a Chiropractic technique that uses a handheld instrument to deliver a gentle, precise adjustment to the spine. The technique is designed to release tension in the spinal cord and improve communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body.

Network Chiropractic

Network Chiropractic is a form of Chiropractic care that focuses on improving the function of the nervous system. The technique involves gentle, non-invasive touches to specific points on the body, designed to help the body release tension and stress.

Network Chiropractic is based on the idea that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and that by restoring proper nervous system function, the body can better heal itself and achieve optimal health and wellness.

Diversified Technique

Diversified Technique

The diversified technique is the most commonly used technique by Chiropractors worldwide. It involves manual adjustment of the spine, where the Chiropractor applies a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust to a specific joint to restore its normal range of motion. This technique effectively treats conditions such as back pain, neck pain and joint tension.

Gonstead Technique

The Gonstead technique is a specific Chiropractic technique that focuses on the biomechanics of the spine. It involves a detailed analysis of the spine’s structure and function to identify misalignments or subluxations that may be causing pain or discomfort.

The Chiropractor then uses a series of manual adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore normal function to the spine.

Thompson Technique

The Thompson technique is a gentle, low-force Chiropractic technique that uses a special table with drop pieces to adjust the spine. The table allows the Chiropractor to apply a specific amount of force to a specific joint or area of the spine without using high-velocity thrusts.

Activator Technique

The activator technique is a gentle, low-force Chiropractic technique that uses a handheld instrument to adjust the spine. The instrument delivers a quick, targeted impulse to the affected area, which helps to restore normal joint function. This technique is particularly useful in treating back and neck pain conditions.

Sacral-Occiput Technique (SOT)

The Sacral Occipital Technique (SOT) is a Chiropractic technique that focuses on the relationship between the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) and the occiput (the bone at the base of the skull). The technique aims to restore normal motion and alignment to the spine by correcting imbalances in the sacrum and occiput.

SOT practitioners use various techniques to address imbalances in the sacrum and occiput, including chiropractic adjustments, cranial manipulation, and soft tissue mobilisation. The method is often used to treat conditions such as back pain and neck pain.

SOT is based on the idea that the sacrum and occiput are key components of the body’s structure and function. Restoring normal motion and alignment to these areas can help improve overall health and wellness.

SOT practitioners use a holistic approach to care, addressing the physical aspects of a patient’s condition and their emotional and psychological well-being. By addressing imbalances in the sacrum and occiput, SOT can help to improve nervous system function, reduce pain and discomfort, and improve overall mobility.

How Chiropractic Techniques Work

How Chiropractic Techniques Work

Chiropractic adjustments help to improve joint mobility and range of motion. When joints are restricted or immobile, it can lead to pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore normal joint function, reducing pain and improving overall mobility.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care offers numerous benefits, including:

Pain relief: Chiropractic care can help to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain and muscular tension.

Improved mobility: Chiropractic adjustments can help improve joint mobility and range of motion, reducing stiffness and overall mobility.

Chiropractic care is a form of complementary medicine that can help to alleviate pain and improve overall health and wellness. By addressing the underlying cause of pain and discomfort, Chiropractic adjustments can help to restore normal joint function, reduce pain and discomfort, and improve overall mobility and wellness.

I’m quite new to Innate Connection, but have received network chiropractic treatment at various stages of my life since I was a child. The team at Innate Connection have been wonderfully warm and welcoming. Dr Gretchen Balas has been providing wholistic support for my injury and it has been great to see that even after many years, my body still remembers how to move and breathe and gradually heal itself.
