If you are struggling with pain in your back on a daily basis, whether it is in the pelvic, lumbar or dorsal area, it can be extremely frustrating. Chronic pain will wear you down, rob you of a good night’s sleep, and steal your appetite. This especially holds true with your back. When pain is your constant companion, it can affect your quality of life, limiting your mobility and ability to do the things that you enjoy. The Thompson Drop Technique could be the solution that finally works for you.
What is the Thompson Drop Technique?
The Thompson Drop Technique was created by Dr. Clay Thompson in the 1950’s as he patented the Thompson Drop Table. This chiropractic table was specially designed to treat issues with the back and is divided into several segments. When a particular area of the back is being adjusted, a critical portion will drop at the same time to move the vertebrae more efficiently. Sections of the table fall through the use of a pneumatic system. This enables your chiropractor to deliver rapid thrusts to the area of concern. At the same time, adjustments are gentle and often produce immediate results.
Benefits of the Thompson Drop Technique
Whether you need one treatment or a series of chiropractic adjustments, you can take advantage of many benefits from the Thompson Drop Technique. They include:
- Pain relief
- Increased flexibility
- Better sleep quality
- The ability to relax
- A return of strength
- Improved mobility
When your spine is adjusted into the proper position, it can make a world of difference. The Thompson Drop Technique makes it easier for your body to respond to your chiropractor’s treatment.
What Can You Expect During the Thompson Drop Technique?
When you are treated using the Thompson Drop Technique, you will lie face down on the Thompson Drop Table. Your chiropractor will perform a leg length check to ensure that your legs appear to be the same length. If they are uneven, this is only one indicator of a need for spinal adjustments. Once your chiropractor has pinpointed areas of concern in your spine, treatment can begin. The table will assist your chiropractor as a targeted area is adjusted, a section of the table rapidly dropping at the same time. This process may be repeated in other areas of the back, depending on your individual needs.
When the treatment is performed, you may feel warmth in the affected area of your spine. This warmth may travel to other parts of your body as well as nerve functioning improves due to treatment. You may be fortunate enough only to need one visit to the chiropractor to resolve your back issues. Otherwise, several visits may be necessary to adjust your back correctly and provide you with lasting relief.
