Thompson technique is a gentle technique that is appreciated by many patients and is beneficial to those in severe acute pain in Barrie, ON.
Thompson technique is part of a class of chiropractic protocols called: Instrument Assisted Adjustment. It was founded in 1957 by Dr. Clay Thompson and is used widely in the chiropractic world.
Thompson technique utilizes a segmented drop-table system whereby each spinal region (Head/Neck/Upper Back/Lower Back) has a corresponding drop mechanism. The height of the drop is tiny – less than a couple centimetres, but it is enough. Your chiropractor will quickly thrust with minimal force and as the table quickly “drops” out from under the segment it carries the joint through its full range of motion using inertia. Only the segment the practitioner contacts will move which makes this technique extremely precise and low impact.
Clients will find that they are adjusted quickly and thoroughly and with very little moving around on the table on their part. In this way Thompson technique is appreciated by many patients as well as those in severe acute pain.
