Drop piece adjusting involves specialized treatment tables that have drop mechanisms to facilitate the movement of the joint. This technique is sometimes used in place of or in addition to a more traditional manipulative adjustment method. The drop piece to be used on you is set to correspond to your weight and then set up. The doctor will then apply quick pressure on your spine to release the drop piece so it drops as the doctor moves the joint. This restores movement the spine in a much easier, gentle way than traditional chiropractic adjustments.
