Adjusting mans backTechniques Used at Phillips Family Chiropractic

Dr. Phillips primarily uses the Pierce-Thompson adjusting technique, but also integrates all of the following techniques to provide personalized care to each patient, based on their needs:

  • Thompson Technique
    Dr. Phillips will demonstrate and explain how the Thompson drop table is used before you are adjusted. This technique assists in the adjustment, using less force, and providing a better adjustment because you are able to relax all of your muscles.
  • Diversified Technique
    After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
  • Gonstead Technique
    This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.
  • Activator Methods®
    This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.
  • Flexion Distraction
    We use a special table so we can traction your spine, opening up the spacing between spinal vertebrae and relieving pressure to spinal.
  • Decompression Therapy
    Our specially-equipped table will ever-so-slowly stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch. And relax. Excellent for disc cases.
