Diversified Technique

Diversified Technique

Dr. Nicholas Zuccala, your Smithtown Chiropractor, utilizes the Diversified Technique to correct spinal misalignments and reduce pain. Advanced Alternative HealthCare and Wellness Center is committed to helping you live an active, healthy life.

Diversified Technique (DT) is the classic chiropractic technique, in modern use for over one hundred years.  The patient lies on a padded chiropractic table, sometimes prone (face down) and sometimes on his or her side.  The doctor of chiropractic uses short, quick thrusts to correct the alignment of the spine, stretch the muscles, and stimulate nerves.  Some adjustments manipulate the entire spine and others are smaller movements that affect a single joint.  In the hands of an experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Zuccala, diversified technique is gentle and effective.  By removing spinal misalignments, pain is reduced and the body is given the opportunity to heal on its own, without drugs or surgery. 

"Observational study found that low back pain patients receiving chiropractic care, which typically includes spinal manipulation, are more satisfied than those receiving medical care."
