The Derifield-Thompson Leg-Check Analysis begins the first stage of Thompson Technique at Ravenswood Health Center. Because an imbalance in the body can affect its core, each patient’s extremities, hips, and spine are thoroughly checked for subluxations; this analysis pinpoints problems in each section of the body, revealing potentially harmful chiropractic conditions, including leg-length inequality. Normal range of motion for the extremities and spine can be restored through the Chicago Thompson Terminal Point Technique, which can eliminate the subluxations that keep joints from functioning properly.
Fast, low-impact thrusts enable the type of adjustment that the Thompson Technique requires, as does its special table. Thompson found that normal, stationary tables were not conducive to this type of adjustments. Because of this, he developed a table especially for the Chicago Thompson Drop Table Technique that is supported by a hydraulic system. The hydraulics drop the table slightly when the doctor applies force during an adjustment – but only an inch or so – which keeps the body secure. Dr. Fennema can, therefore, apply high-velocity thrusts without causing the patient undue pain, as the patient briefly moves with the motion of the adjustment.
Dr. Fennema regularly employs the Chicago Thompson Terminal Point Technique in his chiropractic practice, as do many other chiropractors from across the world. The technique has proven, time and again, to be quite effective in ameliorating the pain associated with an array of problems experienced by patients.
