Blossom Family Chiropractic recognizes that every person and every spine is different. Therefore, our office uses various techniques to best suit you and your family’s needs. Each chiropractic technique we use is extremely effective in improving proper spinal biomechanics and reducing nervous system interference.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
The Thompson technique uses a specific leg length analysis to pinpoint any misaligned vertebrae. Thompson protocol also utilizes a special table that drops in order to reduce the amount of energy needed adjust the spine.
Gonstead/ Diversified/ Full Spine
The Gonstead technique utilizes x-rays, thermography, and motion palpation to detect which vertebrae have lost their normal motion. A specific manual adjustment is administered to free any vertebrae that are not moving properly.
The Webster Technique is specifically designed for pregnant women. The Webster Technique or “the breech turning technique” analyzes the pelvis to look for any structural misalignments which may prevent the baby from positioning itself properly for birth. By adjusting the pelvis and creating more room for the baby, the baby is naturally able to go into an ideal position and allow for a more straightforward birth.
The Activator technique uses an instrument to adjust specific vertebrae in the spine. The Activator gently taps the vertebrae back in place without any “popping” or “cracking” noises typically associated with a chiropractic adjustment. This technique is used on many children in the office.
This technique applies a light pressure (using a fingertip contact) to specific vertebrae in the spine. This sustained contact technique does NOT require any thrust or “popping” noise. We uses this gentle technique to adjust many infants in the office.
