How to Use the Tool

There are many different ways to adjust a thoracic spine in the supine position. Our videos on YouTube and instructions show the different approaches -- you just have to find what works for you and your patients.

As Motion Palpation Institute teaches, in the flexion/extension adjustment of the thoracic and lumbar regions, the patient will lay supine on the table. 

Other approaches include having the patient sitting at the foot of the bed and gently setting the patient down on the table with the fulcrum on the spin.

The last approach is to adjust the patient against the wall while standing. This is also a great way to use the patient’s own body weight as a use for manipulation.

This tool can be utilized by chiropractors, physical therapists, and doctors of osteopathy for soft tissue and spinal manipulation.
