A technique of adjusting the spine using specific lines of drives for all manual thrusts, allowing for specificity in correcting mechanical distortions of the spine. X-rays and case histories are used in analysis and diagnosis. No instruments are used in the adjusting procedure. Motion palpation and full spine, hands-on techniques are used to deliver a deeper thrust, which makes an osseous (popping) sound as the adjustment is given.
The focus is on restoration to normal biochemical function, and correction of subluxation, misalignments of the spine. In addition, diversified methods have been developed to adjust extremity joints, allowing for beneficial application in treating sports as well as other injuries.
