Koren Specific Technique (KST)
Is a chiropractic adjusting technique developed by Dr Tedd Koren, D.C. It utilizes the Arthrostim adjusting instrument which gently taps misaligned or stuck vertebrae or other structures of the body. The goal is to remove nerve interruptions, thereby allowing the body to heal itself. Most adjustments are done sitting or standing and there is no twisting or popping of the spine. Unlike other methods, KST allows the doctor to check and adjust the spine in the positions that cause the problems.
was founded in 1967 by Dr. Arlan Fuhr. Activator technique is a light force method that utilizes an instrument called an Activator to adjust the spine. The technique is performed while the patient is lying face down on a table. Leg length reflexes are analyzed to determine areas of subluxation or misalignment, and the instrument is used to make the correction. No twisting or popping is done with this technique.
Diversified or Manual Adjusting
is the traditional method most chiropractors use. With this method, the bones are manually manipulated into position with a gentle thrust of the hands. Many times, but not always, a pop sound is heard. This is simply a release of air in the joint, (much like the cork coming off a champagne bottle) and not bone rubbing on bone.
Massage Therapy has direct psychological and physiological benefits. Physically, massage increases metabolism, hastens healing, and relaxes and refreshes the muscles. Massage helps improve blood circulation. Since blood carries nutrients to the skin, massage is helpful in keeping the skin functioning in a normal, healthy manner. FIND OUT MORE >>>>
