Why Does it help to have more than one adjusting style?

ChiroFamily is a husband-and-wife team who went to the same school but have different adjusting styles. Sure, our doctors’ adjusting skills definitely overlap, but Dr. Dani tends to focus more on low-force techniques like SOT (Sacral Occipital Technique) and Dr. Rylan enjoys techniques like Gonstead and Diversified. Basically, ChiroFamily has A LOT to offer! Often times, if someone does not respond to care with one doc, we will try to switch things up. Our number one goal for our Sioux Falls patients is that they simply live to their full potential. Sometimes a patient comes in and they absolutely want their back adjusted one way, and they have a different preference for their neck. This is what we love to do: give our patients a voice. Too many times we hear our patients say how they wished they would have had options before! 

Let’s start from the beginning

Say you book your physical online, fill out the paperwork to be sent in ahead of time and FINALLY, it is the day of your appointment. You’ve never been to a chiropractor before and aren’t sure what to expect. After your physical has been completed your doctor will ask you if you have a preference of how you would like to be adjusted. If you have no clue, that is just fine! The doctors can explain to you the various ways our office is able to adjust you. If you would prefer one technique for your pelvis and a completely different technique for your neck, that’s cool with us! Or if you end up changing your mind and would like to try something new, all you have to do is speak up and our doctors can accommodate you as best as they can.

Adjusting techniques used in our office include Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson Drop, Activator, and SOT. Please see our other blog that covers a short and quick description of each technique. These techniques can be used on people of all ages. Some techniques may be suited better for some individuals so talk to your doctor if you have any questions. Children, especially under the age of two, will receive modified versions that are gentler for their little bodies.

If you know you have a preferred way of being adjusted, please consider that when choosing a doctor to schedule under. As said in the beginning, Dr. Dani tends to practice more low force techniques preferring SOT, Activator, and Diversified. Dr. Rylan is the doctor to choose if you like Gonstead, Thompson Drop, or Diversified. Also, if you’re just curious as to what some of these other adjusting styles are, and how you would respond to them- feel free to ask!

Every patient is different, and we understand that. ChiroFamily views all of their patients as individuals and as such will receive individualized care that involves different techniques and care plans.
