Thompson Technique Cervical Region (Zogg, online 2021)

Overview

This course will review the Thompson Technique analysis and adjusting procedures for the Cervical Region.  The course is presented by the granddaughter of Dr. Clay Thompson and includes treasured photos and video clips of Dr. Thompson himself. The Thompson Technique is easily understood and provides a method of  adjusting that offers greater patient comfort as well as less stress on the doctor delivering the adjustment.

"The Thompson Technique is a full-spine adjusting technique that emphasizes high-velocity, low amplitude, and some low-force procedures, using a drop table as an indispensable adjunct. At the heart of the analytic component of the Thompson Technique is the Derifield leg check, adapted from the original work of Dr. Romer Derifield. The Derifield-Thompson leg-check analysis enables the differential diagnostic distinction between primarily cervical and pelvic involvement, as well as distinguishing among the various subentities within these primary diagnostic categories."

"The Thompson Terminal Point drop table aims not only to protect the patient from being overadjusted, but to promote the clinical longevity of the doctor. The adjustments themselves are considered by Thompson practitioners to be 'low force, high velocity,' in that a light thrust triggers the drop section release mechanism. Lumbodorsal and extremity problems are afforded less attention, but also need to be addressed after the primary cervical and lumbar areas have been addressed."
