What is the Thompson Technique?
The Thompson technique is a full spine adjustment technique that brings out using low aptitude, high velocity, and low force procedures. It is also referred to as a drop table adjustment and is highly recommended by chiropractors to treat joint problems of the body using low force. It's also known as one of the most common spinal manipulation methods, which use a specialized drop table with different adjustable segments that cover and support each area of your spine. When the chiropractor applies force on the spine, the table moves down and moves a specific part of your spine, which provides you relief from pain.
How it is Performed?
The Thompson Technique is performed with two steps. First is the posture analysis with various assessments. This step checks the balance of the body because any imbalance in the body affects its core too. So, the spine, hip, and legs are analyzed to check any immobility or limitations. The second step involves a Chiropractic drop table that administers low amplitude and high velocity adjustment and slightly drops when the chiropractor applies pressure or force on the patient for adjustments. The high-velocity pressure causes relief of musculoskeletal pain
Below is an example of a Chiropractor doing a pelvic drop.
