What is the Thompson Technique Drop Table?

The Thompson Technique is a full-spine adjusting technique that emphasizes high-velocity, low amplitude, and some low-force procedures, using a drop table as an indispensable adjunct. At the heart of the analytic component of the Thompson Technique is the Derifield leg check, adapted from the original work of Dr. Romer Derifield. The Derifield-Thompson leg-check analysis enables the differential diagnostic distinction between primarily cervical and pelvic involvement, as well as distinguishing among the various subentities within these primary diagnostic categories."

The adjustments themselves are considered by Thompson practitioners to be 'low force, high velocity,' in that a light thrust triggers the drop section release mechanism.

"The Thompson Terminal Point drop table aims to protect the patient from being overadjusted.
