The Drop Table technique was created by Dr. J. Clay Thompson. It is different because it utilizes a special table with a “drop piece”. The chiropractor uses their hands to apply a quick thrust into the subluxated joint. The force of the thrust causes the body and the table pice to drop down (approximately 1/2″). When the table piece hits the bottom it starts the vertebrae in motion removing any restrictions. The dropping of the table allows for adjustments to be made without the body positioning or twisting associated with the Diversified adjustments.
Below you’ll see a picture of the drop table that Dr. Collins uses in her office. You can see that the middle section is raised up just slightly. As the adjustment is delivered that piece will drop down to be even with the rest of the table.
