The Chiropractic Techniques We Use At Weald Chiropractic

The chiropractic profession hosts an array of different techniques, each hand-picked by the practitioner based on their speciality, foundational training and interest.

Among these are the techniques we use here at Weald Chiropractic & Wellness. The Diversified Chiropractic Technique and the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique stand out for their effectiveness and wide application. 

This article delves into these two key techniques, offering insights into their workings, benefits, and what patients can expect.

What Is The Diversified Chiropractic Technique?

The Diversified Chiropractic Technique is a hallmark of chiropractic care, celebrated for its precision and effectiveness in improving joint function, reducing pain, and enhancing overall well-being.

It begins with a comprehensive evaluation, including medical history and physical examinations, to identify areas needing attention. Through targeted adjustments involving precise, high-velocity thrusts, low amplitude (low force), this technique aims to optimise nerve signal transmission and promote a balanced range of motion.

Recognised for its safety, the Diversified Technique employs gentle, tailored adjustments to suit each patient’s specific needs, usually without causing pain. 

The technique’s roots trace back to both chiropractic and osteopathic foundations, with significant contributions from pioneers like J. Clay Thompson. 

It excels in treating a wide array of musculoskeletal issues, from back and neck pain to joint discomfort and headaches, making it a versatile tool in a chiropractor’s kit.

What Is The Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique?

The Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique introduces a non-invasive, instrument-based approach to spinal adjustment. 

Utilising a handheld device known as the Activator, this method delivers targeted, gentle impulses to the spine, aiming for precise spinal alignment and improved patient comfort. Its development was driven by the need for a reproducible and patient-friendly method, leading to its widespread adoption for its accuracy, safety, and effectiveness.

This technique is particularly notable for its use of an Activator, a tool that allows for targeted adjustments with minimal discomfort, making it ideal for sensitive patients, including the elderly and children. 

The Activator Method is grounded in biomechanics, seeking to restore the body’s balance through quick, measured force applied to specific areas, often evaluated through leg length discrepancies.

Our Commitment to Your Health

We pride ourselves on employing a diverse range of chiropractic techniques to address the unique needs of our patients. 

Both the Diversified and Activator Methods stand as pillars of our practice, each offering distinct benefits. 

The Diversified Technique, with its hands-on, precise adjustments, provides a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal benefits, enhancing mobility and reducing pain. 

Conversely, the Activator Method offers a gentle, instrument-assisted alternative, ideal for patients seeking non-invasive care.

Together, these techniques embody our commitment to delivering personalised, effective chiropractic care.
