Thompson Technique

 

This is a specific chiropractic method and is a variation of the Diversified technique that uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces.

 

These segments can be cocked up a fraction of an inch, so when the thrust is delivered, the table will drop this fraction of an inch.   The drop pieces assist the thrust while minimizing the force used for the manipulation/ adjustment.

 

Cavitation of the joint may or may not occur.
