Thompson Terminal Point Technique (Thompson Drop Table Technique)

Thompson Technique is a specific chiropractic technique that was discovered and developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson. Thompson Technique uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. With Thompson Technique, the table segments can be cocked up a fraction of an inch, so when the thrust is delivered, the table will drop. One of the benefits of Thompson technique is that the drop pieces assist the thrust therefore minimizing the force used for the adjustment. The majority of the spinal adjusting utilizing the Thompson Technique has the patient lying prone(face down). The Leg length analysis concept is another important aspect of the Thompson Technique. This is a method used to determine imbalance in the length of the legs when observed with the patient in a prone position ( face down) on the table.
