Koren Specific Technique

This technique has transformed Dr. Jenn’s overall approach to health and healing.  The Koren Specific Technique developed by Dr. Tedd Koren as a result of research and clinical experimentation. It allows for a more thorough analysis, with the adjustments holding better and for longer periods of time. This allows deeper levels of healing in shorter periods of time.

It uses a binary or yes/no system:  telling us if an area needs or does not need to be corrected or adjusted. This system is akin to muscle testing (applied kinesiology or AK) wherein a muscle will become weak when confronted with a negative impulse.

When an adjustment is needed the area is corrected using the Arthrostim adjusting instrument. 

The ArthroStim is an FDA approved instrument developed by IMPAC technology in Oregon. It has been continuously refined and perfected over its 22-year history. It introduces energy/force/information to the body to realign segments and remove nerve pressure at a speed of 12 “taps” per second (12 hertz); it is a fast, accurate, low force and controlled adjustment.

The ArthroStim gives patients a very specific adjustment, meaning that only the segment that is out of position is adjusted; there is no twisting, turning or “cracking” of joints. This technique permits adjusting in different postures. This is very important because sometimes a problem can only be reproduced in a certain position. For example, a driver in a car accident (sitting) may not reveal their spinal damage or subluxations when standing; therefore they must be analyzed and corrected in the seated position. This is especially noticeable with people who suffer pain, neurological problems, TMJ and other conditions.


Activator Method

Dr. Jenn utilizes this light force technique because of it’s research and results. 

“Research: The Activator Method® is one of the most widely researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy.”  The Activator Methods® 

Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.


Thompson Terminal Point (Thompson Drop) Technique

A technique developed by Dr Clay Thompson that utilizes a precision adjusting table along with a weighing mechanism which gives sufficient tension to keep the patient in the “up” position before the thrust or pressure is applied. The table helps in enhancing the motion of the area or segment which is to be adjusted with less force and twisting than is incorporated in other techniques.
