Chiropractic Techniques Used By Dr. Tamara Lopour

  • Activator – This technique is performed by using a spring-loaded device that is low force, but high velocity. The area of adjustment is determined by a difference in the patient’s leg length and uses muscle testing.
  • SOT – Sacro-Occipital Technique – This technique uses blocks or wedges to adjust the patient’s pelvis. It also involves adjustments to the cranium and sacrum.
  • Applied Kinesiology – This technique involves an adjustment based on muscle testing. Normally, an individual’s arm is used to assist the doctor to determine the area needing adjustment.
  • Diversified – This technique involves manual adjustments of any joint of the spine or extremity.
  • Trigger point therapy – This technique involves using digital pressure to areas of toxic stimuli, also known as “knots,” to allow for muscle balancing and proper joint function.
