Our Treatment Techniques
Gonstead Technique– Life In Motion Chiropractic firmly believes in the Gonstead technique, which essentially aims at addressing the whole problem as opposed to simply providing short-term relief. In essence, the Gonstead technique provides a thorough analysis (normally of the spine) that relies on accurate adjustments with careful attention to technique.
Thompson Technique– The Thompson technique utilizes your legs to make adjustments, especially to the patient’s lower back, spine, and pelvis. Chiropractors utilizing the Thompson technique will first examine your leg length and determine if differences in leg length are causing stress to these key areas. Then, alignments are made in the identified area in an effort to alleviate the pain and discomfort.
SOT ( Sacro Occipital Technique)– The SOT technique focuses on the base of the spine, the “sacrum”, and the top of the spine, the “occiput.” This technique is known for its gentle manipulations with a key focus often being to move cerebro-spinal fluid from the sacrum to the occiput. The premise behind SOT is that gentle manipulations can help identify misalignments in your body and sources of poor health, illnesses, or other disorders.
Diversified Technique– Diversified technique is a classic chiropractic technique that focuses on correcting subluxations (misalignments in the body) by utilizing a variety of methods often including repeated manual thrusts. This technique is very hands-on, firm, and deliberate; therefore, expect to hear popping sounds as alignments are made.
