This technique is commonly used by chiropractors and includes most of the procedures in mainstream chiropractic. Simply put, this technique uses hand thrusts to deliver high velocity, low amplitude pressure to the body. Sometimes a table or a block is used to aid in the process.
These impacts are designed to achieve cavitation, which you may know by its typical “popping” noise. This technique can be used to treat a variety of problem areas, so it is likely that chiropractic patients have come across this treatment before.
