Omaha Diversified Technique
The diversified technique is the most commonly used chiropractic treatment; it involves the manipulation and adjustment of the spinal column as well as extremities (arm, legs, etc). It is called Diversified because it is a combination of the best techniques from other methods of manipulation. Diversified technique involves the use of a low amplitude thrust to adjust the spine and correct any joint dysfunction, and it continues to be one of the most effective treatments for patients of all ages and health histories. Here’s a close look at how the diversified technique works:
Key Characteristics of the Diversified Technique
The diversified technique is applied very quickly and usually results in a“popping” sound as the spine and joints are pushed back into alignment. The diversified technique is unique because it uses only a small thrust movement on a specific joint. This results in a clicking sound caused by the surface of the joint separating and releasing trapped gas/air. This is a completely natural effect, and is the result of decreased pressure inside the joint which creates a gas bubble. When this bubble releases, the joint makes a noticeable clicking or popping sound.
Benefits of the Diversified Technique
The diversified technique is one of the most efficient and effective ways to move a joint that is out of place or not moving properly, back into its proper position and movement pattern. Chiropractic treatments offer a natural alternative to surgery and can effectively help manage pain and reduce the effects of an injury. Diversified technique is the technique most commonly used on professional and amateur athletes and has been shown to enhance athletic performance.
