What Kind of Pain are You Experiencing?
The Nature of Chiropractic Care
An adjustment is the primary therapeutic tool used by chiropractors. The adjustment is a controlled force applied to an affected joint of the spine or extremity. The purpose of this is to influence the motion and neurological function of the joint. The adjustment or manipulation can be performed with many different techniques to best suit the patient. At Mountain View Pain Center our doctors have treated patients from as young as a few days old, to patients in their 100’s.
Types of Adjustments and Chiropractic Techniques
Mountain View Pain Center uses one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world. Activator Methods Technique® (AMCT) is a gentle, low-force chiropractic technique.
Gonstead represents the ultimate standard in “hands on” spinal adjusting and remains one of the leaders in chiropractic techniques. The Gonstead Technique has a specific application on the affected segment or segments only. What makes the Gonstead technique unique is its system that allows for a very thorough evaluation process.
Diversified Technique is the classic chiropractic technique, developed to address biomechanical failure in each section of the spine. The focus is on restoration to normal function. In addition, Diversified methods have been developed to adjust extremity joints, allowing for beneficial applications in treating sports injuries and other injuries.
The Thompson Technique was first introduced over fifty years ago by Dr. J. Clay Thompson. Since the beginning, this system of analysis and drop-table correction has been used by thousands of successful chiropractors.
