Experience Gentle & Specific Adjustments With KST

Mention chiropractic care and you may automatically think that cracking, twisting or popping are involved in getting an effective adjustment. That’s not the case. One of the ways we’re different in our practice is that we offer Koren Specific Technique (KST). This remarkably gentle and highly specific technique gets incredible results, without the cracking, twisting or popping!

Providing Precise Correction With the ArthroStim®

Mom and childI can put a patient in any position with KST, whether it be sitting, standing or lying down. If a person says they have pain while playing the guitar, I put them in the position as they’re playing the guitar. If they’re riding a motorcycle, I have them put themselves in that position. If they’re golfing, I will have them stand in the position where they’re saying, “I have pain in this position.”

An occipital drop, which is a type of chiropractic assessment method, is used. Let’s say the person says, “I have pain right here in my shoulder when I’m playing the guitar.” I will touch that spot and push that shoulder—to the left or the right, forward or backward, or up or down. Whatever position I push it, I use the occipital drop to check to see if I push it further out of alignment. I use a small handheld vibrating device called an ArthroStim. This FDA-approved instrument applies a series of highly controlled taps to misaligned vertebral segments.

I take it on that body part and push it in the opposite direction. I ask, “Does this make this better or worse?” If I push it and makes it worse, I take the ArthroStim and gently tap it back in the direction that corrects it. So I’m asking the body if it’s out of position. Then I can zero in and pinpoint where I need to adjust.

Addressing an Array of Conditions

If a bone is out of alignment, it can cause a lot of painful problems that can interfere in your daily life. The good news is that ArthroStim can help with many conditions that include

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Bursitis
  • Chronic injuries
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Stress (chemical, physical or emotional)

By using KST with the ArthroStim, you can experience highly effective adjustments that will help you feel your best.
