This guide will help you choose the best adapters for your technique and style.
Welcome To The Adapter Guide – Part 1
Do you have the question of which adapter to use for which area, technique or adjustment? Well that is what this guide is for. Here you will find many of the ways our Chiropractors use the instrument and with which adapters. As a general rule you choose the adapter for the area. If you have an adult you want to adjust in the thoracic region then a narrow fork will work and in the lumbar a wide fork will work. But in a pediatric environment then the narrow fork would work for the lumabr and you may need an extra narrow for the thoracics.
These are not set rules though, and as an individual Chiropractor you will find what works best for you and your patients. And it may surprise you and us. For instance our Rib Adapter speciality tip is used equally as much for shoulders as it is for ribs.
