Dr. Tamaryns' Chiropractic Techniques
Motion Specific Technique
Motion Specific Technique is a technique honed by Dr. Tim Young, a world-renowned leader in Chiropractic. Tamaryn has trained under Dr.Young, mastering this technique to offer the most specific adjustment possible. Motion Specific Technique initially focuses on the assessment of your spine, locating the areas of most stress and restriction, then returning natural motion through specific spinal adjustments. This technique may include 'cracking' and 'popping' of your spinal joints, as the restrictions are released. This is Tamaryn's commonly used technique for most patient presentations.
This technique looks to remove restrictions between the joints of the spine by performing gentle pulls, pushes, and twists to the spine, helping to remove adhesions from between the spinal joints. These types of adjustments can cause some mild clicking or popping of your joints, which is a perfectly natural process.
Tamaryn has completed many hours of training in reading and assessing X-Rays, and reports on X-Rays every day for her patients. This experience helps Tamaryn to accurately locate the areas of most stress in your spine, and assess the causes of the dysfunction; allowing her to create the most effective plan to help to return your spine to normal function. At Chichester Chiropractic Health Centre we have digital X-Ray imaging facilities available onsite, which we can use if necessary to help more accurately assess the causes of your symptoms.
