“What Style of Chiropractic do you practice?” We get the question all the time. In order to answer the question fully, let’s dig into the background of chiropractic medicine itself:
The practice of chiropractic was founded on the belief that the body has the ability to heal itself and that the nervous system is the key to maintaining health. In the millenia before chiropractic, practitioners were known as “bone-setters.” They used manual adjustments to align the spine and other areas, and alleviate pain. The term “chiropractor” was not coined until relatively recently.
The field of chiropractic has a rich history in America, dating back to the late 19th century. The first American chiropractor, DD Palmer, opened the first chiropractic school in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa. In the early 20th century, chiropractors faced significant opposition from the medical community, but over time, and with improvements in both research and education, the practice has grown in popularity and acceptance by the wider medical community. Today, chiropractic is considered a mainstream form of healthcare and is widely accepted.
At Windy Ridge Chiropractic in Bozeman, MT, we use a technique called “Diversified Technique” which allows us to customize treatment to the full spectrum of human size, shape, comfort and pain level. The diversified technique is a combination of different techniques such as Thompson,
Gonstead, Cox, Activator, SOT, and others. This allows us to use whichever style makes the most sense for the patient we are treating.
There is really effective stuff in all these styles of adjusting, so we’re trained to do it all. It’s not necessary to use a lot of force on everybody, and not everybody will respond to super light adjusting either. We listen to our patients, and our primary goal is to get your adjustment “just right” for you.
Chiropractic adjustments are performed to align the spine and alleviate pain. The adjustments are done manually and are gentle and precise. The goal is to improve mechanical motion of the spine and extremities, positively affect the function of the nervous system, and improve the patient’s overall health and well-being.
