Deciding on the Best Technique to Suit Your Needs

With so many chiropractic techniques used today, you may wonder how I decide if one will be used over another. On the first day you come in, I will sit down and have a consultation with you, then an exam will be performed to find out any problems which may exist. After that, X-rays will be taken to locate the levels of subluxations in the spine. I want to see exactly what’s going on, and evaluate whether we have a pathology concern that will require referral to another medical professional. Assuming that isn’t the case and you are a candidate for chiropractic care, we’ll proceed from there.

Start With a Manual Adjustment

For the first several weeks of your care, a manual, hands-on adjustment will be performed. This is for your body to begin accepting the correction that we are working to achieve. If I see that there is something deeper that I need to address, I can also use the Koren Specific Technique (KST) during the course of your treatment.

Let Your Body Do the Talking

KST is a technique of asking the body questions and the body is answering me, saying, “Yes, you can use this technique on me today. Or no, I don’t want you to use the technique on me today.” Your body is going to tell me what technique to use on you that day.  It knows what’s going on inside you and what the body needs to have corrected for optimal progress.

Experience the Difference That KST Makes

I use KST as a secondary adjusting style on almost every patient. It allows me to clear out deeper things that I can not find with X-rays. This could be cranial work, or issues involving the shoulders, ribs, ankles, feet and wrists.

For example, with KST I can move cranial bones microscopically so that a patient won’t even feel it. People often remark at how much lighter they feel after the technique is used. For example, several patients have said that their jaw is not clicking anymore or that their headaches are gone.

Some people prefer a manual adjustment, but KST is especially suitable for infants, kids and older adults who prefer a lighter adjustment approach or patients who are not able to communicate very well verbally (including infants and canines). Although KST doesn’t require a heavy or forceful adjustment, it is just as, if not more effective than a traditional adjustment.

If you’d like to experience gentle correction and feel your best with KST, contact our practice today to schedule an appointment!
