Diversified Technique

Chiropractic services include a variety of exercises or adjustments, some more common than others. The Diversified Technique is one of the most frequently used chiropractic techniques. Here at Joshua Tree Chiropractic, we are happy to offer this to the El Cerrito, CA, area.


What Is the Diversified Technique?

The Diversified Technique is performed by giving a rapid, low-amplitude thrust to a specific target (usually, a restricted joint) with the goal of fully restoring the range of motion to that joint. The primary uses for it include restoring spinal alignment, repairing joint dysfunction, and restoring proper movement.

Synovial fluid, which acts as a lubricant for joints, can be impacted by the cavitation of a joint. This will lead to the levels of gasses in the synovial fluid (carbon dioxide, oxygen, and nitrogen) to build. The “popping” sound of joints being realigned comes from the releasing of these gasses. With proper mobility restored, the afflicted area should have pain relief shortly after the adjustment due to the pressure release and inflammation will begin to subside.

What Is the Diversified Technique Used to Treat?

Many things. That is what makes it the top used practice of most chiropractors. Between the immediate relief of an adjustment and the side-effect relief from what being misaligned can lead to, chiropractic services such as the Diversified Technique have become common methods for treating:

Musculoskeletal Disorders

Since the Diversified Technique restores mobility of joints, it is often used in tandem with physical therapy to strengthen muscles to help improve or maintain mobility caused by health conditions or an accident.

Migraine Headaches

It is underestimated how important spinal fluid flow is in maintaining optimum health. Those who suffer from migraines have observed that treating their spines with this therapy have had their migraines reduce in both severity and frequency. 

Pregnancy-Related Discomfort

There is a lot of added pressure to the joints of a body that is growing a human life. Ankles, knees, hips, and the back are the most common trouble areas, and among the most common for a chiropractor to treat.

Spinal/Neck Curvature

Routinely using the Diversified Technique to ensure the proper spinal alignment can remedy some of the curvature that may have happened to a spine due to certain conditions or even bad posture.
