What Do Chiropractic Adjustments Treat?

We Offer Various Types of Chiropractic Adjustments in Cape Coral

Some of the chiropractic adjustments we provide for our clients in Cape Coral include:

Diversified Adjustments

These adjustments are probably the most well-known of all spinal manipulations. They include techniques that force the vertebrae into alignment, effectively “popping” the back, often resulting in immediate relief. However, multiple sessions are usually required to maintain proper alignment and fully relieve any associated pain.

Seated Diversified Adjustments

This technique works the same way as a typical diversified adjustment but requires the patient to sit up. We often use this technique for neck and shoulder injuries.

Lumbar Side Posture Adjustments

These adjustments may help relieve lower back pain. They require the patient to be in a specific position—on their side with one leg bent in front of them. The doctor then applies force to realign the spine as needed.

Thompson Drop-Table Technique

The Thompson Drop-Table Technique occurs on a unique table with seven segments. The table allows the doctor to apply the proper amount of force while minimizing the force the patient experiences. This special table also helps keep the patient in the appropriate position for full spinal manipulation.

You may hear this called the “Thompson Terminal Point Technique” by some familiar with chiropractic care.

Knee-Chest Adjustments

Knee-chest adjustments are a type of spinal manipulation for the cervical spine. The patient kneels with their chest against the exam table for this adjustment. This position puts them at the proper height for the doctor to manipulate their neck and upper back.

Manual Extremities Adjustments

In some cases, the chiropractor will need to adjust a joint in another part of the body. This type of adjustment allows our physicians to treat bursitis, carpal tunnel, and other concerns away from the spine. These adjustments could include almost any joint, such as the:

  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Ankle
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Wrist

Toggle Recoil

The toggle recoil is among the most gentle adjustments our physicians make, which is perfect for patients who cannot withstand the more intense manipulations. This technique utilizes smaller, quicker thrusts instead of more forceful adjustments.

The Activator Method

Instead of using their hands to make a diversified adjustment, the physician uses a small instrument that provides a high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) force. The activator method allows the chiropractor to make a more controlled and specific adjustment.

The Sacral-Occipital technique (SOT)

Since the 1920s, chiropractors have used the sacral-occipital technique (SOT) to target and adjust specific areas of the body. These areas include the:

  • Head and cervical spine
  • Pelvis
  • Extremities
  • Internal organs
  • Lower and mid-back


The Flexion Distraction Technique is a gentle spinal manipulation and decompression technique, and a non-surgical alternative for disc pain patients. This form of Chiropractic Manipulation is a gentle distraction adjustment (pulling apart of joints and vertebrae) for the spine in order to help patients with back pain and extremity pain experience dramatic relief.

The Flexion Distraction Technique affects the spine by widening the spine’s disc space opening, causing decreased pressure within the disc. This process aids in the healing of disc herniations, increases the size of the nerve openings in the spine to help relieve pinched nerves, and helps restore normal range of motion to the joints of the spine.

Our Physicians Also Prescribe Physiotherapy for Many Patients

At Specific Care Chiropractic, we use physiotherapy in conjunction with chiropractic care to help our patients heal, rehabilitate, and stay healthy. By using physical therapy, we can facilitate a patient’s recovery more fully. The physiotherapies we provide in our Cape Coral office include:

Our physicians will prescribe the therapies that best suit each patient’s needs. For example, after manual extremities adjustments for bursitis, you may require corrective care and stretching and strengthening exercises. Corrective care includes ongoing monitoring, and we will adjust your treatment plan if you experience a recurrence or new symptoms.

Specific Care Chiropractic’s Physicians Want to Help Reduce Your Pain

Our team from Specific Care Chiropractic wants to see you living free from pain and discomfort. We will personally create a unique chiropractic, physiotherapy, and wellness plan that addresses your condition and needs.

Our Cape Coral office is located at:

461 Del Prado Blvd S C
Cape Coral, FL 33990

From this office, we can address your pain and reduce your risk of future injury or illness. When a patient comes to us in chronic pain, we can often use unique chiropractic techniques to provide relief for back pain, neck stiffness, and joint injuries.

Once we have a patient’s pain under control, we can move toward a plan that prevents future pain by improving strength and flexibility, as well as overall health. Chiropractic care looks at the body more holistically than most types of conventional medicine. We do not believe in only addressing the symptoms of a condition once it occurs. Instead, we aim to prevent the condition from developing in the first place.
