3 Convenient Locations To Serve You

Thompson

Chiropractic Health

The Thompson Technique, developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson, has evolved into a system of analysis and a way of adjusting the full spine. The combination produces precise adjustments and high levels of practice member comfort.


A System of Analysis

Early chiropractors noticed that subluxations would produce the appearance of a short, or contracted leg. Using a protocol of comparing leg lengths while the practice member turned their head, helped determine whether the subluxation was in the upper, middle or lower back.

What practice members often notice first is our segmental “drop” table. After stepping onto the platform, the table gently lowers you into a horizontal position. This helps preserve any leg length inequality.

Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along our table surface support each area of your spine until the thrust is delivered. Then, each drop piece gently gives way, reducing the amount of energy needed to move a specific spinal segment.


Popular and Patented

So unique is this approach, Dr. Thompson was granted a patent in 1955. Since then, because of its precision and practice member results, it is a technique used around the world.

What Our Patients Say

My interactions with the various staff members have exceeded my initial expectations. I am impressed and pleased the care given here does not stop at adjustments. Deep tissue massage and traction were incorporated in my care.

Dr. Gaulard was very compassionate and gentle, and after only a few visits, I am walking and able to bend, with ease, and much less pain. Thank you, so much, for getting me back on track.
