The Thompson Drop

What is it?

The Thompson Drop Table facilitates a full spine technique by the use of an adjusting table.  It is a pneumatically driven, segmented drop system, which quickly lowers the section of the patient’s body corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted. 

How does it work?

A neurological imbalance will affect the legs resulting in the appearance of one leg being short.  This occurs when various muscles are over stimulated.  This over-stimulation results in a leg length differential that is visually evident and is measurable.  Contraindications would be an anatomical short leg, history of poorly healed fracture, or a joint implant.

Treatment

Whether it is in dorsal, lumber or pelvic area, Dr. Cathy thrusts at a high speed, using minimal force, to create an initial movement.  This allows a fast drop to carry the joint through the remainder of its range of motion.
