Diversified Technique is a quick technique that generally results in the popping sound as the chiropractor makes the adjustment. It is one of the most widely used forms of manipulation in the chiropractic field.
Diversified is the most common technique used by chiropractors. It is a manual adjustment technique used to correct misaligned or subluxated spinal segments of the neck and back.
This is a technique taught at most major chiropractic colleges. It is primarily the use of the practitioner's hands to make the spinal correction. Many times an audible pop will be heard as the correction is made.
This is the technique style that most people associate with chiropractic, using a small, quick thrust to increase movement in a specific joint and often creating a clicking sound as the joint surfaces separate. The clicking, or cavitation to give it it's correct name, is caused by decreased pressure inside the joint, creating a bubble of gas, which clicks as it bursts.
