Diversified Technique

female chiropractor adjusting patientAt The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay), one of the many adjustment styles we use is referred to as Diversified Technique. Among the most popular chiropractic techniques, this hands-on approach allows us to manually adjust your spinal joints to help them move and function normally.

The Diversified Technique can be successful in helping patients of all ages get back to living the life they love naturally.

What to Expect

First, a thorough history of your problem and an analysis of your spine and surrounding muscles are performed. This can, on occasion, also involve taking X-ray pictures of your spine.

Where misaligned spinal bones and dysfunctional joints are identified, a specific manual thrust is administered. The direction, speed, depth and angle of the thrust that are used to reduce the dysfunction are the result of years of experience, clinical 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. There’s no need to worry or be frightened about this—in fact, most patients find adjustments relaxing and relieving!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the benefits of using this technique?
Diversified Technique usually delivers beneficial results that the patient is immediately aware of.

What’s the one thing you want patients to know about this technique?

Although some patients may be apprehensive of the occasional ‘clicking’ sound, most patients find it gratifying to feel that something beneficial has happened during the adjustment. It is very rare that an adjustment hurts, even if it is a deeper adjustment.

How long does it take to find relief from pain or symptoms using this technique?

Often the patient feels an immediate benefit from the adjustment. However, depending on the type of problem being addressed, subsequent adjustments are usually required to stabilise and rehabilitate a problem and prevent future relapses fully.
Are there any special certifications or training you have regarding this technique?
All our The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay) chiropractors have earned a Masters Degree in Chiropractic, and jointly we have over 50 years of experience in helping patients using the Diversified Technique.

How long does this type of adjustment take?

Although an adjustment only takes seconds, each session lasts about 15 minutes and includes an assessment, adjustments and usually some soft tissue work if it is relevant to the problem being addressed.

Why is it important to know different types of adjustment techniques?

As every patient presenting to us is unique, it is important for a chiropractor to have knowledge of a variety of adjusting techniques suitable for all ages and injuries, and that takes into consideration each patient’s medical history and requests.

A Patient Success Story

Mrs C presented to the clinic, having suffered from severe headaches for many years. The headaches had started shortly after a car accident and had been almost constant since. Medication had only temporarily and partially been of help.

After a thorough history and examination, Mrs C was diagnosed to suffer from upper cervical (neck) joint dysfunction with associated cervicogenic (coming from the neck) headaches. The Diversified Technique was used in combination with trigger point therapy of Mrs C’s upper neck region, together with advice regarding stretches to be done at home.

Mrs C came to her second appointment delighted to report that she had already noticed a significant reduction in the intensity of her headaches. After the sixth adjustment, Mrs C had stopped all pain medication, and after the eighth session, she reported no further headaches.

What sorts of conditions can this technique help relieve?

The Diversified Technique can be used for most dysfunctions of the spinal joints that cause symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, general back pain, sciatica, localised muscle spasms, referred arm pain, pain in the ribs and much more.
