In chiropractic practice, the diversified technique (DT) is the most commonly used of the different adjustment techniques. DT can be used to treat many different conditions. The manipulative technique is characterized by precise, fast, thrusts with the hands, the aim of which is to realign joints and restore function. No instruments are used during this type of procedure. DT relies on the natural biomechanics of the spine in order to facilitate motion in the vertebrae and other joints.
When May I Need DT?
DT is a suitable treatment if you are suffering from the following conditions:
pain in the lower or upper back
shoulder stiffness and pain
pain in the ankle and knee joints
Your chiropractor will combine the use of a thorough case history, manual palpation of the spine, an orthopedic and neurological exam and x-rays (if necessary) for your diagnosis. The high velocity, low amplitude thrust will restore the proper alignment of the spinal joints causing a slight “popping” sound (gas being released) as your joints are realigned back to their proper positions.
