Diversified Chiropractic Technique, or DCT, for spinal manipulation involves application of “a short (low-amplitude), quick (high-velocity) thrust over restricted joints (one at a time) with the goal of restoring normal range of motion in the joint”. This technique is commonly used for 3 objectives:
- Restore spinal alignment
- Repair joint dysfunction
- Enhance proper movement
Myofascial Release Technique
Due to stress, injury, or overuse, muscles can begin to tighten and shorten, causing a great deal of pain, discomfort, and loss of flexibility. Direct and indirect MFR techniques use pressure and stretching to relieve painful muscle tension. Practitioners may use instruments, hands, arms or even their elbows to elongate muscles and increase a patient’s muscle flexibility. While direct technique applies force to problematic areas, indirect MFR works along with tension until tension, generated by injury or ailment, is relieved. This technique is commonly used to:
- Restore normal range of motion
- Rehabilitate musculoskeletal form
