Diversified This is the most common non-specific technique
used by most chiropractors. It is a technique which may
utilise more than one method. It will involve spinal
adjustment, and generally results in an audible sound.

Activator Technique is a gentle, low-force program of
chiropractic care that was developed in the late 1960s.
The Activator technique uses a unique system of
administering spinal adjustments using Activator
analysis and an Activator instrument to initiate the correct
movement of the vertebra in a predetermined direction.

Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is a method of
chiropractic based primarily on the identification and
treatment of three bodily systems: the cranial sacral
respiratory system, the weight-bearing system and the
function of the lumbar spine. A SOT chiropractor analyzes
and then treats using blocks, joint adjustment, organ/soft
tissue reflex manipulation and cranial corrections.

  Blocking Techniques Whilst the patient is lying down, wooden
wedges are skilfully placed in certain positions under the pelvis.
The pelvis is thus balanced gently and naturally, using the
patient's own bodyweight. This aims to restore natural alignment
and balance of the spine and pelvis.

Drop Techniques A specific technique for adjustment of the full
spine on a special table. The adjusting table with a segmented
drop system quickly lowers the section of the patient's body
corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted.
The chiropractor's thrusts (using minimal force) initiates
movement, and the fast drop of the table carries the joint
through the remainder of its range of motion.
