Since each and every individual is unique, the same adjustment is not used with everyone. At Triumph Chiropractic, a wide variety of chiropractic techniques are used. There are many factors one must consider while performing adjustments on a patients. One patient may require a light, low force technique, such as Activator or impulse. Other’s may need a full spine approach, in which a high velocity, low amplitude thrust is delivered and joint cavitation is obtained. Below is descriptions of the various Chiropractic techniques utilized in the office.


Fullspine & Diversified

After a complete analysis, the Dr. Rodnick will deliver any necessary adjustments. The focus of a Diversified adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible, addressing only the problem areas (areas of subluxation). Great care is taken to ensure a bio-mechanically correct position and precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible. It is our goal  to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.


Extremity Adjustments

A misalignment of a joint not only occurs in the spine, but can manifest in the extremities of the human body. An extremity adjustment can be performed on the TMJ, shoulders, elbows, wrist, knee, ankle and more. The adjustments can be used to reduce scar tissue, reduce tight muscles, help recover from an injury, re-educate the joint motion and restore normal function to the joint.



The Activator technique has published clinical and scientific peer-reviewed papers beyond that of most chiropractic analytical treatment procedures. The Activator is a mechanical low force, manually-assisted adjusting instrument is recognized and covered by insurance. It is safe and easy to use with patient of all ages.


Thompson Technique

Thompson Technique uses an adjusting table with a pneumatically driven, segmented drop system, which quickly lowers the section of the patient’s body corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted. The doctor thrusts at high speed, using minimal force, because while the thrust initiates movement, the fast drop carries the joint through the remainder of its range of motion. Leg length checks, palpation, X-rays and other appropriate tests are used by the Thompson practitioner in determining where to adjust.


Pregnancy Care

Chiropractic care has yielded great results for decades in not only reducing back pain, but improving overall quality of life during ones pregnancy.  When a women has the job of creating another life, pain should be the last thing affecting her nervous system. In addition to reducing pain, the Webster technique has shown positive resulting in promoting proper positioning of the baby for delivery.


Cox Flexion/Distraction

Cox® Technique is research-documented spinal manipulation to relieve lower back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain and a host of other spinal related conditions like disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post-surgical continued pain, and pregnancy related back pain. Cox® Technic’s developer, Dr. James M. Cox, has insisted for nearly 50 years on documenting the science of this non-surgical alternative to back surgery approach to back pain relief in the hands of well-trained back specialists.
