Thompson Adjustment Technique
Thompson technique was developed by Dr. Clay Thompson and well used by many chiropractors.
Thompson technique uses very gentle force into patient's spine and/or joints to correct any misaligned segments. It requires a special adjustment table with drop pieces to perform the technique. Dr. Dio Kim has a certificate in Thompson Drop Technique who follows the Thompson protocol. The subluxation causes to build pressure on the spinal cord or nerve root and it interferes the balance between the central facilitory and inhibitory reflex mechanisms that located in the brain and the spinal cord. Moreover, these mechanisms can cause muscles to contract and relax then this imbalanced mechanism causes a contracted short leg. During the each adjustment session, Dr. Kim checks the patient's leg length to find a specific level of subluxation and to confirm the subluxation has released.
