Diversified Adjustment Alpha Chiropractic Clinic Hemel Hempstead

At Alpha Chiropractic and Sports Injury Clinic, we use an adjusting style commonly referred to as “Diversified.” Many people ask the questions “what is chiropractic?” or “what is a chiropractor?” Diversified is the technique practiced by Danial David Palmer, the first chiropractor who founded the chiropractic medical profession in 1895.

So, what is the diversified chiropractic technique?

First, as with all other chiropractic techniques used by your chiropractor,an analysis of your spine is performed. This will initially involve a case history and may also require X-ray pictures of your spine. The chiropractic examination and tests will get to the root of your problem and allow your chiropractor to show you why the problem has developed and what treatment and rehabilitation programme will best suit your individual needs.

Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the spinal joints move as you turn and bend. Or, a leg check may be performed, to uncover an imbalance in the neck or lower spine.

With the malposition of one or more spinal bones identified, a specific manual thrust is administered. 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.

Conditions commonly treated using the diversified chiropractic method include: back pain and stiffness, neck pain and stiffness, sacro-iliac joint dysfunction, lumbar spine pain and stiffness.
