Chiropractic Techniques

Dr. Erin Scott was trained at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL and uses the ‘Palmer Package’ when

adjusting her patients, which enables her to use multiple different techniques to best suit each adjustment.

Dr. Erin uses a variety of techniques that she customizes depending on the patient’s specific needs, conditions, and personal preference.

Every patient is unique and so is their treatment at Fall Creek Chiropractic!

Diversified:  As the name implies, the diversified technique can be used to adjust many of the joints in the body. This is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques and is the one most familiar to patients. The diversified adjustment entails a thrust that usually results in a release of gas causing the ‘popping’ often associated with a chiropractic adjustment.

Thompson Drop: This technique uses a ‘drop table’, where a gentle thrust is applied which in turn, sets the drop piece into motion and targets the specific joint or tissue. The "crack" will not be heard as the table drop piece makes its own noise.

Activator: Also affectionately referred to as "the clicker".  This is a hand held adjustment tool that a chiropractor can use to correct vertebral and pelvic misalignments.  It has a varying level of force that can be set by the doctor, depending on the segment and patient being adjusted. There will be no "cracking" heard during this adjustment.

Logan Basic: Logan Basic is one of the lowest-force adjusting techniques chiropractic care has to offer. The technique is based on light, sustained pressure exerted against a specific contact point on the sacrotuberous ligament followed by the doctor using specific points up the spine to relax muscles and correct misalignments.

Extremity Adjustments: Chiropractors use extremity adjustment to mobilize muscles and joints that may be causing musculoskeletal or joint problems. The goal of extremity adjusting is to restore mobility and nerve supply to joints and extremities that are affecting the nervous system and causing pain to the shoulder, wrist, ankle, and foot.

Craniosacral Therapy:  Cranial Sacral Therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touch to balance the cranial sacral system in the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area.
