This technique involves the manipulation of the neck, spinal column and other joints in order to bring relief to the affected areas. The reason it’s called the diversified technique is because it is a combination of the best chiropractic manipulation methods available.
The diversified technique is used by applying a low amplitude thrust to gently correct joint dysfunction and to adjust the subluxated spinal segments. A specific hand arrangement called a pisiform contact is utilized to apply the specific thrust in the affected area needed to get the alignment back in order. Professional chiropractors know exactly what direction, angle, depth and speed to use to get the best result with years-long experience, extensive practice and deep understanding of spinal mechanics.
Applied in a very quick manner, the diversified technique is known to result in a popping sound as the joints and spine get pushed back into their right alignment. The pop sound is due to the gas and fluids that are in the joint, and is in no way a bad or dangerous event that happens during the treatment. No tools or devices are used in the technique, which consists merely of manual adjustments.
This powerful treatment is and has been one of the most effective ways to treat patients young and old with all kinds of health histories. It is also widely used to treat sports injuries that involve extremity joints, allowing maximum benefits.
Sometimes, subsequent visits can include motion palpitation, which is when the chiropractor feels the patient’s spinal joints move as they turn and bend on the table. Also, a check of the lower extremities may be performed to see if an imbalance of the neck or lower spine exists.
This technique is by far the best way to get joints that are out of place or not moving properly back to their right position and movement. The diversified technique, as well as other chiropractic treatments, offer a safe and natural alternative to surgery. It can greatly reduce the pain from injuries and chronic joint pain.
