Thompson Chiropractic Technique uses a specialised table to allow a quick, gentle adjustment.

Thompson Technique uses a special table with several segments called drop-pieces.  The drop pieces allow a quick, small impulse when you are adjusted. For many people this makes it more comfortable.  Cavitation, or “popping”, of the joint typically does not occur. The majority of the adjustments are performed with the client lying face down.

Impulse adjusting technique

Impulse adjusting technique uses a microprocessor controlled, hand held instrument to give adjustments. The Impulse instrument can give a short series of inputs which aim to restore movement to your spine. Cavitation, or “popping”, of the joint typically does not occur. The majority of the adjustments are performed with the client lying face down.

Manual adjusting is the classic chiropractic technique that most people think of when they think of being adjusted. Manual adjusting is, as the name suggests, more hands on than adjusting with the impulse or the activator. Cavitation or “popping” will typically occur with this style of adjustment.

The SD or Sympathetic Dominance Protocol is a relatively new approach to care. It is aimed at helping people who have been under chronic stress. The SD protocol uses a type of manual adjustment combined with postural exercises supported by recommendations on your nutrition and daily routines. 

 

The SD protocol may be applicable for you if you suffer from the following;

 

  • Chronically tight neck and shoulder muscles

  • Regular headaches

  • Dry skin, brittle nails and/or hair falling out

  • Digestive issues

  • Hormonal issues

  • Fatigue

  • Chronically feeling cold

  • Sensitivity to light or sound

 

 

Both Martin and Kieran are certified practitioners in the SD protocol.
