The Thompson Drop Table facilitates a full spine technique by the use of an adjusting table. It is a pneumatically driven, segmented drop system, which quickly lowers the section of the patient's body corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted.
A neurological imbalance will affect the legs resulting in the appearance of one leg being short. This occurs when various muscles are over stimulated. This over-stimulation results in a leg length differential that is visually evident and is measurable. Contraindications would be an anatomical short leg, history of poorly healed fracture, or a joint implant.
Whether it is in dorsal, lumber or pelvic area, Dr. Cathy thrusts at a high speed, using minimal force, to create an initial movement. This allows a fast drop to carry the joint through the remainder of its range of motion.
