Thompson Drop-Table Technique
The Thompson Drop-Table Technique uses a precision adjusting table with a weighing mechanism which adds only enough tension to hold the patient in the "up" position before the thrust is given.
How Dr. Owens uses the Thompson Drop Technique
A different adjusting style that uses a drop away piece to restore motion to restricted joints This adjusting style still uses the hands but not in the same format as the manual adjusting style. The two techniques often work in unison. This adjusting style also works well for people who do not like the manual style of adjusting, for those who have disc injuries or bone density issues where rotation adjustments or pressure on the spine is contraindicated.
