Our Chiropractic Care Techniques

The chiropractors at MacKenzie SDI may employ a number of chiropractic techniques to treat misalignments of the musculoskeletal system, including the Diversified, Gonstead, and Thompson methods. Find out more about these techniques below.


Diversified is the traditional adjustment technique that usually comes to mind when patients think of chiropractic care. It involves a manual adjustment using a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust that often results in a “popping” or “cracking” sound. The diversified method is very effective for restoring movement and alignment of the spine and joints.


The Gonstead technique involves a thorough analysis of spinal x-rays to identify subluxation of the spine and determine the correct adjustments to be administered. The goal of a Gonstead adjustment is to be as precise as possible. Chiropractors make adjustments only to a patient’s problem areas.


Also known as drop-table, the Thompson technique introduces the concept of adding motion to traditional adjustment techniques. During treatment, the segmental drop table quickly lowers the section of the patient’s body corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted, assisting with thrust while minimizing force.
