Experience the Difference: Why Koren Specific Technique Beats Traditional Chiropractic Methods


At Dody Chiropractic Center for Wholeness in Littleton, CO, we adopt a unique approach to chiropractic care that extends beyond traditional methods. Our focus isn’t just on treating pain but on enhancing your entire health profile. The Koren Specific Technique (KST) that I specialize in plays a pivotal role in addressing physical and emotional stresses and structural imbalances in a way that promotes your natural healing.

Understanding Koren Specific Technique (KST)

KST is not a one-size-fits-all approach. As I often explain to patients in our office, the adjustment areas may differ with each visit because the body’s needs can change dynamically. This technique allows me to “talk to your body” to determine which specific spinal segment or body part needs adjustment and in what order—much like finding the right combination in a lock to release its mechanism.

The Limitations of Traditional Chiropractic Techniques

Traditional chiropractic techniques often focus primarily on bone-based adjustments—moving a spinal bone to its proper position to relieve nerve pressure. While effective for many, this approach may not consider the body’s complex interplay between muscles, energy flow, and emotional stresses, which are crucial to promote natural healing.

How KST Addresses These Limitations

What sets KST apart is its versatility and comprehensiveness. Unlike traditional methods that may adjust the same subluxations repeatedly, KST provides tailored adjustments based on your body’s current needs, making every session unique.

Personal Anecdote

Many of my patients have remarked on how different each session feels. For instance, one patient noted that, unlike previous chiropractors, our sessions seemed to target new areas each time, which she felt contributed to her overall improvement and understanding of her body’s needs. Another unique difference with KST chiropractic is that it addresses old injuries and bad habits caused by emotional issues.

Exploring Different Adjusting Styles

Bone-Based Adjustments

Most people think of bone-based chiropractic adjustments when they think of chiropractic care. The goal is to move the bone to remove nerve pressure. While this is very effective for symptoms like neck or lower back pain, it doesn’t address emotional stress very well. Manual adjustments tend to be less specific. At our clinic, bone-based adjustments might involve manual techniques or instruments like the ArthroStim™, depending on what your body requires.

Muscle-Based Adjustments

This adjustment style uses the concept that muscles move the bone, so relieving the tension will be the key to correcting subluxations if a muscle is tense. The KST adjustment honors the body’s innate intelligence. It involves positioning you so that your muscles help correct issues, reducing strain and enhancing the treatment’s effectiveness.

Energy-Based Adjustments

Our energy-based techniques are subtler and suit those who need a gentler touch. They use methods such as muscle testing or an occipital drop to access the body’s subtle energies. Most adjustments are designed to empower your daily activities and naturally guide your bones back to alignment with very gentle manipulation.

The Comprehensive Benefits of Koren Specific Technique (KST)

Using KST, we delve deep to address the root causes of discomfort and dysfunction, from physical and emotional stresses to structural imbalances. This approach targets the symptomatic areas and promotes natural healing throughout the entire system, enhancing body function and catalyzing a profound healing process across all facets of your being.

Enhanced Mobility Example

Consider the case of a patient struggling with chronic stiffness and neck pain. By blending the three core adjustment styles inherent in KST—focusing on bone alignment, muscle testing, and energy flow—we alleviated their discomfort and significantly enhanced their overall mobility. This patient’s life quality transformed, showcasing the dynamic capabilities of KST to improve body function and manage pain more effectively than traditional chiropractic care.

Why Choose KST?

KST is not just another chiropractic technique but a holistic approach to wellness. It is particularly suited for individuals who have not found relief through conventional treatments or seek a more gentle manipulation method that considers the patient’s uniqueness and holistic health. This technique is also ideal for those involved in athletic performance, as it helps correct old injuries and bad habits that can limit physical activity.

By treating the whole person, not just the symptoms, KST supports the body’s natural healing capacity, promoting better health outcomes and improved body function.
