Good for you for wanting to understand the 300+ named techniques in chiropractic!
Technique Systems in Chiropractic is a great overview of a handful of the techniques - CBP, BEST, Activator, Cranial, Cox, Diversified, DNFT, AK, Gonstead, etc., etc. I haven't read it, but a professor provided me with her summary notes, and it's been great to understand the premise and any supporting evidence.

Gonstead has its own book covering the philosophy and the basic adjustments.

A few others to consider:

Brilliant! You really think a clean MRI and X-rays are not only contraindications but grounds to revoke a license to practice? How do you ever adjust anyone? In the absence of any logical reasoning, objective factual signs on imaging or subjective symptoms not only are you willing to give up but even whine and cry about those that have the common sense to do the right thing. Sorry I do not share your delusional fears. In this world there are two kinds of people, those that take action and those that look for reason not to take action obviously you are among the latter. Good thing the DC that saw James on one faithful Tuesday wasn't paralyzed by fear and took action because there was no good reason not to provide the care the patient needed. James had symptoms similar to those outlined above only more sever. Had the DC simply been afraid of the patient James would not be alive but instead the DC had faith in not only his own ability but also in the patients ability to function and heal.

Well, you were mistaken. Motion palpation is key, and the Gonstead method of MP works better for me than the MPI stuff did.

Yes, the Gonstead model of subluxation is questionable, but the "why" to adjust is one thing, while the "how and where" is another. I'm no "Gondroid", I mix it up quite a bit, but his methods are good.

You should read up on it. It's fascinating. Check out the book.

There's a North American functional neurologist named Randy Beck ( who has a clinic here in Perth, Western Australia.
He's authored a book ( for manual practinioners. He taught us neurology at Murdoch University in third year and knows his stuff. Something well beyond my understanding but I'd love to get into after Uni.

At a pop-up stall, it is a gimmick but not a scam. It is a practical tool when used with other measurements. No good doc will take the scan done at the pop-up and use it to actually evaluate their patient. They may do a re-scan in the office (and probably have a 20 second bit on why the in office scan is more accurate if there is a noticeable difference).

The gray box is likely a Tytron scanner.

The short version explanation is that it has two temperature sensing probes that measure the skin temperature on either side of the spine. While the specific temperature of the skin is not a major factor in the evaluation, the difference between the two sides is.

Without getting super technical, significant (+/- 2º to 5ºF) differences in lateral temperature are an indicator of a problem area of the spine. It does not prescribe what adjustment may be necessary, but the magnitude of temperature difference post-adjustment should be smaller.

The scanner has two small wheels that roll along the back or neck to keep track of distance traveled (Think a mini [one of these] ( and keeps a constant scan of temperature. The difference can be graphed in a line that shows Left, Difference, Right or as shown on that pop-up display with a bar chart showing scales of difference. The larger the temperature difference, the bigger the bar.

So in short: It's a good tool to assist in confirming an evaluation but it is not a specific diagnostic tool. It also happens to be a good non-invasive marketing tool.

OK while not technically a KT brand the Elastikon brand by J&J has worked VERY well for me. I learned about it from Mark Charrette in his extremity series and it is cheap and is VERY sticky. I usually get 4+ days if not a whole week for a single application on my patients.

I took a social media marketing class (still a student) but the book we used was fantastic.

I'm a techie guy and up with all the latest trends, but this really put the pieces together and made a ton of sense.

Thank you for your honesty. Looking at this one in particular:

I like research too. That’s why I also have this book.

Don’t get me wrong, some of those studies lack a lot and aren’t definitive at all. But raises really good questions. Recommend this to you as well.

Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

Here are your smile-ified links:

As said before there are not many great studies yet but here are a few that I have found:

Chiropractic and decreased BP

Lung function associated with mobility of the thoracic spine

Spinal manipulative therapy reduces inflammatory cytokines but not substance P production in normal subjects

There are lots of studies in this book: Dr. Leach came and talked to us and showed us some more recent research coming out. The research is getting better. It's just not quite there yet.

Similar to this pillow?

i know its on the expensive side, but it looks way more comfy than most of the other pillows ive seen out there.

I went to the chiro down the street this week and was pretty turned off. While i found out that I couldnt move my neck side to side worth a damn, he could not adequetely describe to me from the x-rays the actual ailment/issues so that i could fucking google it.

additionally, he immediately tried to sign me up for a 36 visit plan with an upfront investment and no discount over just paying a single visit at a time. To me this is used car salesmen sleezy.

Finally, he tried to sale me juice plus. Im a competitive body builder or was, and know all about nutrition. And these scam nutirtion systems are more or less made to rip off old ladies such as my mom lol, who always buys into it with 0 results

okay well I hope you learn how to critically assess research and what you read then. If thats something you want to know how to do then I suggest you at least start with

Or just skip ahead to evidence based texts such as:

Clinical Reasoning In Spine Pain vol2

Brunker & Khan's clinical sports medicine
