Chiropractic Manipulation


The purpose of a chiropractic manipulation, or adjustment, is to decrease pain and inflammation and to increase the function and mobility of an injured or misaligned joint or spine segment. Dr. Witt uses a variety of adjusting techniques to better serve her patients. Diversified Technique is the "classic" technique and uses specific manual thrusts focusing on restoring normal biomechanical function. The Activator Technique can be used as an alternative to a hand adjustment. It delivers a very specific mechanical, low-force, high-speed adjustment to the body. This technique is used mostly for smaller joints or for patients who do not like the "cracking" sound. Other techniques used include Thompson Drop Technique and SOT.
