Unlocking Wellness with our favorite Chiropractic Techniques
At MSK ProHealth, we prioritize your well-being through our favorite chiropractic techniques that enhance spinal health, improve comfort, and ensure a personalized approach to care. Our commitment to your health includes a few of our choice techniques in the chiropractic world: Diversified Adjustments, Drop Table, and Activator tool.
Imagine you’ve been experiencing persistent lower back pain that’s been affecting your daily life. You schedule an appointment with a chiropractor at MSK ProHealth to seek relief. During your visit, the chiropractor carefully assesses your condition. They identify that one of the issues contributing to your lower back pain is a misalignment in your lumbar spine (the lower part of your back). To address this specific problem, they perform a Diversified Adjustment.
Here's how the adjustment works:
The chiropractor identifies the precise location of the misalignment by palpating your spine, feeling for any abnormalities or areas of tension.
You lie either left side or right side down on a padded chiropractic table.
You may hear a gentle popping sound during the adjustment, which is entirely normal and caused by the release of gas from the joint. This adjustment helps to restore proper alignment, relieve pressure on nerves, and promote improved spinal function.
Using their hands, the chiropractor applies a quick, controlled force to the specific vertebrae in your lumbar spine that needs adjustment. This force is carefully directed to encourage the vertebrae to move back into their correct positions.
After the adjustment, the chiropractor may provide you with some post-adjustment advice, such as exercises or stretches to maintain spinal health. In this example, the Diversified Adjustment is a targeted and precise technique used to address the specific issue causing your lower back pain. It's one of the various methods that a chiropractor at MSK ProHealth may use to promote spinal health, reduce discomfort, and enhance your overall well-being.

The Drop Table Technique enhances spinal alignment and alleviates discomfort using a specialized treatment table with segmented sections.
Here's how it works
When you lie on the Drop Table, the chiropractor can use it to precisely target areas of your spine that need attention. These specific sections of the table drop gently, allowing your chiropractor to make very accurate adjustments. The Drop Table technique is known for being gentle and comfortable, making it a great choice for people who prefer a more relaxing chiropractic experience.
The Activator Technique is a specialized chiropractic approach designed to promote optimal spinal health and overall well-being. It involves the use of a handheld instrument known as the Activator Adjusting Instrument. The Activator Technique stands out for its gentle precision. This innovative tool allows our skilled chiropractors to deliver precise, controlled adjustments to specific areas of the spine and extremities with minimal force. It’s suitable for clients of all ages, including children and seniors, offering a comfortable and pain-free experience.
