Dr. Holmes says...

  • Diversified Technique (DT) is the most commonly used adjustment technique. It is characterized by a high velocity low amplitude thrust. Its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.
  • Thompson Technique is a chiropractic adjustment performed on a table in which the supporting cushions drop an inch or two when a thrust is applied to the spine. Practitioners locate "subluxations" by checking leg lengths with the legs straight, the knees bent, or the head turned to either side.
  • Gonstead Technique represents the ultimate standard in "hands on" spinal adjusting and remains the leader in chiropractic techniques.
  • Toggle Drop Technique is when the doctor, using crossed hands, presses down firmly on a particular area of the spine. This is done to improve mobility in the vertebral joints.
  • Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique is a gentle method of manipulation using a small spring-powered tool directly on the spine to move vertebrae into place.
