Diversified in Tampa

female chiropractor adjusting patientWhile there are numerous chiropractic approaches used worldwide, the Diversified chiropractic technique is one of the most widely used methods within chiropractic care. Dr. D.D. Palmer, considered the founder of chiropractic, developed this technique in the late 19th century. The method was further refined and popularized by his son, Dr. B.J. Palmer, and has since become a cornerstone of chiropractic adjustments.

Origins of This Method

Dr. D.D. Palmer’s approach to chiropractic care focused on the concept of spinal misalignments (subluxations) causing interference in the nervous system, thereby impacting overall health. He believed that restoring proper alignment to the spine could alleviate this interference and promote the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

How Does It Work?

The Diversified technique uses manual, hands-on adjustments to realign the spine. As a chiropractor who regularly uses this technique, Dr. Berven has a keen understanding of anatomy, biomechanics, and the spine’s structure.

Here’s what a patient can expect when getting adjusted with this method at Berven Chiropractic:

  • Assessment: First, Dr. Berven conducts a thorough evaluation, which may include physical exams and X-rays, and discusses the patient’s medical history to identify areas of misalignment or dysfunction.
  • Adjustments: During the adjustment, our chiropractor applies a quick, controlled force to specific joints of the spine or other areas of the body where misalignments are present. This force is delivered manually through precise and targeted movements.
  • Realignment: The goal of the adjustment is to restore proper alignment and mobility to the affected joints. By doing so, it aims to reduce nerve interference, alleviate pain, and improve overall function.
  • Post-Adjustment Care: After the adjustment, Dr. Berven may provide guidance on posture, exercises, or lifestyle modifications to support the healing process and prevent future issues.
