For more than 100 years Chiropractic techniques have been evolving, as in all branches of Medicine and Dentistry.
Chiropractors have a wide range of treatment techniques available with very specific protocols and of great precision, accompanied by continually evolving investigations.
Currently, Chiropractors have manual skills (Gonstead technique) for subluxations caused by trauma, organic types of techniques.
(TBM – technique) that deals with a malfunction of an organ and energetic types of techniques (BEST – Technique) that treat the subluxations provoked by wave aggression that disturbs our magnetic field.
· Some of the techniques with the latest protocols that we use in our Center.
– GONSTEAD TECNIQUE
With the objective of reducing nervous pressure, a direct manual application is carried out on the spine to mobilize or unblock very specific vertebral segments. This skill is carried out by a very precise, quick and brief movement.
– TOOGLE TECHNIQUE (H.I.O)
This skill, developed by Dr B.J. Palmer at the beginning of the 50s, operates on the first two Cervical vertebrae, Atlas (C-1) and Axis (C-2), with the objective of vitalizing and strengthening the whole nervous system.
Located in this area is the biggest concentration of nervous recipients – recipients that allow us to position in the space. At an energetic level, the occipito and the first cervical represent the first exit door of the nervous system where the brain is transformed in the spinal cord. The Hindus call this opening at the base of the skull ‘God’s mouth’.
All the nervous impulses for the whole body that are distributed from the brain pass through here. Also the other way round, the nerve messages that come from the body to the brain. A subluxation in this area has enormous consequences.
– SACROOCCIPITAL TECHNIQUE
Developed in the 50s by Doctor De Janette, doctor of Osteopathy and Chiropractic. This technique uses wedges to position the pelvis correctly. The general objective is to vitalize the nervous system. It is very effective in problems such as slipped discs and hip imbalance. It increases the circulation of the cerebrospinal liquid across the primary respiration. According to where the wedges are placed, it produces a positive effect on one pain or another.
– ACTIVATOR TECHNIQUE
In this technique an instrument is used that works in a reflex way, that is to say that by stimulating an area the work reverberates in other parts.
This instrument, that reminds us of the shape of a corkscrew and emits a dry cracking sound, works by striking in the area in a precise and gentle way and knowing exactly where the adjustment goes, to eliminate the subluxation and re-balance the nervous system.
TOTAL BODY MODIFICATION (TBM)
The concept of the TBM technique is the detection and stimulation of those organs that do not work to the maximum of their capacity and that, in consequence to their functional deficit, can destabilize the spinal column thereby creating subluxations or joint blocks.
