Diversified Technique

Dr. Harcourt is a third-generation chiropractic physician who provides diversified spinal and extremity adjustments.  Diversified hands-on adjustment is the most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractic physicians who are experts at applying manipulation to the spine.  Diversified is characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore both proper movement and alignment of the spine. Diversified technique remains the principal system taught at the National University of Health Sciences, New York Chiropractic College, Southern California University of Health Sciences, Northwestern College of Chiropractic and Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.
