The Primary adjusting techniques we use include:
Diversified : At Three Lamps Chiropractic, we use an adjusting style commonly referred to as "Diversified". With the malposition of one or more spinal bones identified, a specific manual thrust is adminstered. The direction, speed, depth and angle that are used is the result of years of experience, practice and a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics. The energy delivered during the thrust may produce a slight "popping" sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. This sound may be interesting, but is not a guide as to the value or effectiveness of the adjustment. While improving spinal biomechanics can reduce nervous system interferences, virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to help restore proper range of motion.
Activator Methods : We use one of the most popular "low force" chiropractic techniques in the world. The Activator Methods Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high speed thrust. Because it is many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It is also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.
SOT : SOT stands for Sacro Occipital Technique, a chiropractic technique designed to help normalise the relationship between the pelvis and the head. We use wedge-shaped devices known as "blocks" to help correct your spine and properly "tune" your nervous nervous. By knowing exactly where to position the blocks, we use the weight of your body to make corrections, naturally.
MASSAGE : Remedial massage is a form of massage used to assess and treat dysfunctions from injury or long term imbalances stemming from old injuries. It can also be used to treat general muscle soreness from over exertion.
If you have been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy, and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
