The Thompson Technique utilizes the “Segmental Drop System” in which patients lay on a “Segmental Drop Table” which has a headpiece that drops as the chiropractor adjusts the vertebrae. This design takes advantage of the natural structure of the joints in the spine by allowing the chiropractor to move the spinal segment in which ever direction it is needed to improve its motion with the joints above and below it. the technique is performed with the patient lying face down on the table and adjustments performed from posterior to anterior.
