Chiropractic Techniques Used

 
 

Dr. Botz employs a wide range of proven techniques, all individualized for each patient. Below is a list of the popular chiropractic techniques he uses in his practice:

Chiropractic Care

  • Chiropractic BioPhysics® - CBP®, is, in short, a higher level of chiropractic. It is a more knowledgeable, comprehensive, systematic, scientific approach to chiropractic that provides predictable results for patients.  Support for this claim includes a considerable amount of data from research, the experience of numerous CBP® practitioners, and the longevity of the approach. CBP® combines standard chiropractic joint adjustments with mirror image® (opposite position) postural adjustments, mirror image® spinal/postural exercise, and mirror-image® traction to provide more permanent relief and improved health for patients through spine and postural correction (www.idealspine.com).
  • Neuromechanical Chiropractic Technique - Born out of more than a decade of research and engineering,  Neuromechanical Chiropractic Technique features new technology tuned in to the natural frequency of the body, resulting in more efficient and effective chiropractic adjustments.
  • Motion Palpation - In motion palpation, the chiropractor examines each complex spinal joint to analyze the degree to which it may lack proper motion. This highly-skilled maneuver requires the examiner to have a mental picture and tactile knowledge of a spinal joint's normal motion. Normal motion is compared with the feel of the joint being examined as it is moved through its range of motion.
  • Drop Table - The patient lies on a special table with a "drop piece". The chiropractor applies a quick thrust at the same time the table drops. The dropping of the table allows for a lighter adjustment without the twisting positions that can accompany the manual adjustment.
  • Exercise - Dr. Botz will make recommendations and teach patients how to do strengthening exercises at home to help maintain their spinal adjustments.   A regular routine of exercises helps patients avoid stiffness and weakness, minimize recurrences of pain, and reduce the severity and duration of possible future episodes of  pain.
  • Activator - Activator is often the gentlest method of adjusting the spine. The patient lies on the table face down (or face up or standing) while the chiropractor uses a spring-loaded activator instrument to perform the adjustment.
