Koren Specific Technique in Danville, CA

Developed by chiropractor Dr. Tedd Koren, the Koren Specific Technique (KST) is a breakthrough chiropractic healing protocol that applies gentle, specific adjustments or corrections to the spine or structural system. Most adjustments are performed with patients either standing or seated. Others require lying down on a table and a handheld adjusting device called an ArthroStim, which delivers precise, gentle, and low-force impulses to the spine and other joints. This method is considered less invasive and can be more comfortable for patients, especially those who may be apprehensive about manual adjustments. With KST at Align Healing Center, there is no twisting, turning, cracking, or popping of joints. Our team provides this gentle, individualized approach that can be applied to a wide range of health issues. Schedule a consultation at our Danville, CA office to learn more about this gentle but powerful technique.

Our practitioners take a holistic approach with KST, considering not just the physical but also the emotional and environmental factors that might affect a patient's health. Known for its gentle nature, KST may be a solution for patients who are apprehensive about traditional chiropractic adjustments. KST is performed through a distinct three-step process:

1. Analysis: An occipital drop test, which checks for subtle movement or reflex in the occipital area of the skull, may be performed to show areas of imbalance or stress in the body.

2. Correction: An instrument called the ArthroStim may be used to deliver controlled, gentle, and rapid thrusts to correct identified misalignments. Gentle adjustments may also be performed on patients in various postures to address underlying issues.

3. Confirmation: After the gentle KST is administered, our team may reapply the occipital drop test to confirm that areas of concern have been adequately addressed.

The Koren Specific Technique's distinctive healing approach has become a valuable part of chiropractic care. With gentle, precise, and patient-specific adjustments, KST at Align Healing Center can be tailored to meet each patient's needs. By incorporating innovative methods and tools, such as the ArthroStim instrument, KST offers a range of benefits that make it a preferred choice for patients seeking a holistic and less invasive treatment option.

Have been coming here for years. Anytime I have an injury or need help with recovering from an illness, Align has my back (literally). I recommend the ozone treatments if you are an active person.
