Thompson Drop

« Back

This is a specific chiropractic method that uses a special “segmental drop table”. These segments can be cocked up a fraction of an inch, so when the thrust is delivered, the table will drop this fraction of an inch. The drop pieces assist the thrust while minimizing the force used for the manipulation/ adjustment. The majority of the spinal adjusting utilizing the Thompson Technique has the patient face down. Typically the technique does not illicit any noise from the adjustment and it is lighter than a manual adjustment.
