Dr. Holt specializes in several chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Activator, Drop Table, SOT blocks, Spinal Disk Therapy (Decompression), and Ultrasound.
Diversified technique is very widely used chiropractic technique. This technique uses short, low force thrust to manipulate the spine. No additional tools are required only palpitation using the hands. It is common to hear a "popping "or "cracking "sound during a diversified treatment. The goal of the technique is to restore the motion to a dysfunctional joint.
Activator technique is one of the most widely used low force techniques and chiropractic practices. The "activator "instrument is applied to the joints in the targeted treatment areas. A mild force impulse is delivered to the area addressing the underlying issues that may be causing back pain, neck pain or headache pain.
The drop table technique uses a segment table that drops slightly during adjustment. The slight dropping of the table allows for lower application of force as the table itself transports the force into the joints while it drops into place. This technique is often used to target the pelvic and lumbar regions.
SOT blocks technique utilizes soft foam blocks which are positioned under the pelvis as lower pressure is applied to correct the malpositions as identified.
Spinal disk therapy (Decompression) is defined by webmd.com as “a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disk. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.”
