KOREN SPECIFIC TECHNIQUE

WHAT IS KST

In this office we offer a unique, breakthrough approach to patient care called Koren Specific Technique(KST). There is no twisting, turning, " cracking" or "popping" of joints with KST; instead, you receive gentle, specific corrections to your spine and structural system. Most adjustments or corrections are done with you standing or sitting. KST is very gentle yet very powerful.

FIRST STEP

The first step, challenging, is part of the analysis procedure. In a relatively short period of time the entire structural system can be checked: skull, spine, discs, hips, ribs, sternum, shoulders, arms, legs, hands, feet - literally anything that is out of position can be analyzed.


SECOND STEP
The second step, checking, tells me if the body part is in its proper position. The base of the skull is used as a yes/no device.

Thus we have a binary or yes/no system telling us if an area needs or does not need to be corrected or adjusted. This system is akin to muscle testing (applied kinesiology or AK) wherein a muscle will become weak when confronted with a negative impulse.

THIRD STEP

Correcting, step three. When an adjustment is needed the area is corrected using the Arthrostim™ adjusting instrument.

The ArthroStim™ is an FDA approved instrument developed by IMPAC technology in Oregon. It has been continuously refined and perfected over its 22-year history. It introduces energy/force/information to the body to realign segments and remove nerve pressure at a speed of 12 "taps" per second (12 hertz); it is a fast, accurate, low force and controlled adjustment.

The ArthroStim™ gives patients a very specific adjustment, meaning that only the segment that is out of position is adjusted; there is no twisting, turning or "cracking" of joints. This technique permits adjusting in different postures.

This is very important because sometimes a problem can only be reproduced in a certain position. For example, a driver in a car accident (sitting) may not reveal their spinal damage or subluxations when standing; therefore they must be analyzed and corrected in the seated position. This is especially noticeable with people who suffer pain, neurological problems, TMJ and other conditions.

Adjusting people in the standing position has the added benefit of working with gravity. I don't have to say, "OK, please stand up and see how you feel" because the patient is already standing. Their body can process the adjustment or correction immediately.

HOW SHOULD A PATIENT FEEL

Most people report a feeling of ease, relaxation and well-being as their structural nerve stress (subluxations) releases/diminishes. Some people feel very relaxed and they should listen to their body and go home and sleep if at all possible.

The next day some people feel as if they've had a good workout, often in places they never knew they had. This is usually felt only after the first adjustment, is temporary and usually disappears within a short time.

RETRACING

People have many layers. After the correction of what the body is showing at the time, older injuries, older distortions, older subluxations and older symptoms (both physical and emotional) may surface to release. The release and healing of old injuries is known as "retracing" and is usually part of the healing process.

On occasion patients have reported "cleansing" symptoms such as headache,fever and sweating as toxins leave the body. These symptoms are usually temporary. It is helpful to be told if unusual symptoms arise. These symptoms may take the form of emotional releases: old memories coming up or unusual dreams.

Sometimes an area is so weak and the distortion so extensive that a segment put in place may not stay in position and may need correcting again.
