Activator is a handheld tool used to adjust joints through a short impulse. Activators can be used on different settings to determine the amount of forced used with an adjustment, based off the presentation of the patient.
All of our Chiropractors learnt Gonstead whilst attending RMIT University. This technique uses numerous assessments and forms of diagnosis to determine the cause of the patient's condition. In some cases X-rays may be utilised to determine the line of drive and torque required to specifically adjust a patient vertebrae. Clarence Gonstead was the founder and developer of the Gonstead Technique. Originally trained as an engineer, Clarence designed a technique based on angles, forces and vectors.
When looking at a vertebral joint Diversified looks at the transverse process or lateral mass of the vertebrae to identify the motion of fixation. Thrusting in this direction will often result in a cavitation or 'pop' of the joint.
Pelvic blocking is strongly associated with SOT or the sacro-occipital technique and our practice has the latest state of the art inflatable pelvic blocks designed to ensure maximum comfort.
