Beemer Back Center Techniques

Dr. Beemer’s strategy is to adapt her treatment to the technique that best suits her individual patient’s need

Health can no longer be a consideration of only parts of an individual; health must be a consideration of the body as a whole. Our body’s natural state is wellness… until interferences occur. There are six major interferences that must be addressed for anyone to hold an adjustment: structural imbalance, electromagnetic radiation, nutritional deficiencies, allergies and sensitivities, negative emotional patterns, and toxicity. Subluxation (vertebral misalignment) causes pain and disease, but we must identify what causes the subluxation for each patient. This page describes some of the techniques and procedures that are used at Beemer Back Center for treatment of subluxations.

Activator Technique

The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a chiropractic treatment method created by Arlan Fuhr as an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine or extremity joints. The device is a mechanical force manual assisted instrument which is generally regarded as softer chiropractic treatment technique. The activator is a small handheld spring-loaded instrument which delivers a small impulse to the spine. In 2003, the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners found that 69.9% of chiropractors used the technique, and 23.9% of patients received it.

Diversified Technique

Diversified Technique is the classic chiropractic technique. This technique was developed to address biomechanical failure in each section of the spine as it relates to specific subluxation. Full spine, hands-on techniques are used to deliver a deep thrust, which makes an osseous (popping) sound as the adjustment is given.ysiotherapy Procedures.

COX Flexion-Distraction

COX is a gentle, distraction decompression adjustment procedure for low back pain. COX is an excellent technique for a ruptured/herniated/bulged disc, failed back surgery syndrome, leg pain, sciatica, facet syndrome, and degenerative disc disease. For patients with a “disc” related problem the COX technique provides the following benefits:

1. Increases the disc height
2. Removes irritation on the spinal nerve
3. Allows the center of the disc to asume its central position
4. Restores vertebral joint motion

For patients with other conditions causing back pain the COX technique provides these benefits plus the ability to place the spinal joints into normal… painless movements so as to restore spinal motion without pain.
