Diversified Technique

What Is the Diversified Technique and How Does it Help?

The Diversified technique is one of the most commonly practiced techniques, not just by our doctors, but by chiropractors around the world. The Diversified technique involves your chiropractor manually placing pressure through the affected vertebral segment in order to restore proper movement.

This technique is a safe and effective way of relieving stiffness and pain. It is also the technique most commonly associated with a “popping” noise, which is simply gas being released from the joint as it is unlocked.

At Northbridge Chiropractic, our doctors may perform the Diversified technique following an expert analysis and case history.
