Our medical professionals employ a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Below, you’ll find a brief explanation of the popular chiropractic techniques we use at our practice.
Reinert Specific Diversified, developed by Dr. Otto C. Reinert, has become a well-recognized technique within the chiropractic profession. Employed by all Logan graduates, this technique attempts to correct biomechanical distortions through the use of high-velocity adjusting.
Logan Basic Technique, founded by Dr. H.B. Logan, is a system developed to evaluate and treat musculoskeletal complaints. This technique requires the application of a firm contact on the sacrotuberous ligament. This in turn leads to stimulation of the nervous system which causes the muscles of the spine to relax. This technique is ideal for not only pregnant patients, but infants and children as well.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), founded by Major Bertrand Dejarnette, is a system of categorization and treatment of biomechanical dysfunction. This technique requires specialized sacral blocks in addition to high-velocity adjustments to correct the various types of distortions created by the three categories of patients as recognized by Major Dejarnette.
Cox Flexion/Distraction, developed by Dr. James M. Cox, is a table-assisted technique which uses the weight of the patient's lower extremity to treat spinal-related complaints. This technique is both gentle to the patient and excellent for patients discouraged by traditional high-velocity adjustments.
Thompson Technique, developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson, makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or "drop pieces" located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.
Graston Technique, founded by David Graston, is a system of evaluating and treating patients with the use of specialized instruments constructed with surgical-grade steel. When coupled with a proprietary emollient, these tools are not only able to diagnose and treat restrictions in soft tissue, but can also help reduce scar tissue as well.
Our office employs many physical therapy modalities, including ultrasound, electrotherapy, kinesiotaping, and physiotherapy. These adjunctive modalities compliment the various techniques utilized at B. Wright Back Chiropractic, Inc. with the intent of increasing patients' experiences and clinical outcomes.
