Traditional adjusting techniques are those manipulative techniques that are typically performed with a high degree of speed and are usually accompanied by a “cracking” noise being heard and felt in the joint being manipulated. Examples of such traditional adjusting techniques that Dr. Mark is competent in include Diversified and Gonstead Technique. These techniques are used on both the spine and extremity joints such as the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet.
Other traditional adjusting techniques are performed with a high degree of speed but without a cracking noise being heard. These techniques are performed on specialized chiropractic tables. Examples of these techniques which Dr. Mark is competent in, include Thompson Drop Technique and Upper Cervical Toggle Recoil Technique.
