Diversified Technique Video

Diversified Technique

Diversified technique (DT) is the most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractors.

Diversified is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction

Diversified Technique

During auto accidents, it is not uncommon for a patient to hit the dash or the steering wheel. Often times patients use their hand to brace themselves on impact. The compression that occurs in the hand is transferred up to the shoulder, creating a shoulder injury. That stress can cause micro-tears to the muscles (strains) and ligaments (sprains) of in the supraspinatus and infraspinatus. These tears can vary from complete (Grade III) to less than 25% (Grade I). They can cause swelling, inflammation, and lead to bursitis, pain, and eventually cause neck pain and headaches.

Typical treatment for these tears (shoulder Injuries) includes the use of muscle stimulation or ultrasound to decrease the pain and increase the circulation to that area. After that, a form of myofascial release is often used to break up the scar tissue that has formed.

Common forms of myofascial release including instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), active release technique (ART), Graston technique, and Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation (FAKTR) technique.
