A spinal adjustment is a very specific application of force applied by your chiropractor to specific areas of the spine or extremity joints. This is usually applied manually or through specialised chiropractic adjusting instruments. Our chiropractors are trained in a variety of techniques, including Thompson drops, SOT, activator, CBP and Webster Technique and can adapt them to all ages and conditions. These protocols and techniques help the chiropractor determine the exact areas the adjustments need to be applied to.
Chiropractic Biophysics or CBP is a chiropractic technique and certification which allows chiropractors to guide patients through spinal rehabilitation and postural correction with the aim to address pain and symptoms as well as organ function. CPB involves specific x-ray analysis which assesses the current shape of the curves of the spine with the aim of improving these through corrective care.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment of the sacrum and pelvic ligaments in order to help ease the pregnant mother’s pelvic alignment and nervous system function. This helps balance the pelvic muscles and ligaments which in turn will reduce the torsion to the uterus with the aim of facilitating foetal positioning. For more information check the ICPA website.
