At our Chiropractic office we offer our patients a unique breakthrough approach to patient healthcare called Koren Specific Technique (KST). With KST there is no twisting, turning, “cracking” or “popping” of joints. Instead you receive gentle, specific corrections to your spine and structural system. Most adjustments or corrections are done while you are standing or sitting.
KST was founded by Dr. Tedd Koren who is well known in our profession for co-founding a Chiropractic College and the patient education materials he writes which are used by thousands of Chiropractors around the world. Using his own resources Dr. Koren has worked tirelessly to defend Chiropractic as a mainstream healthcare alternative against those in government and the medical profession who would prefer Chiropractic be moved to some obscure form of therapy that does not work.
Dr. Koren tells his story about KST like this:
“My most powerful contribution to Chiropractic and to the healing professions occurred as a result of an accident that left me partially disabled and in chronic pain for 10 long years. Not one of the 40-50 Chiropractors and other healers that I went to could help me and I gave up my license to practice. I was disgusted, depressed and hurting all the time. It seemed no one could help me and so I decided to take matters into my own hands. I discovered how to work on myself and my ten years of suffering disappeared after 5 days!!! Once I unlocked the key to my own healing I tried the same technique on my wife who had suffered from migraines for many years and her headaches quickly went away and never returned. This was the beginning of Koren Specific Technique (KST). But was this discovery I made really as good as it seemed? I had to find out and so for almost two years I traveled all over the US working on the sickest Chiropractors who were the ones everyone else gave up on! The results were so dramatic, Doctors begged me to teach this simple procedure that was changing lives so quickly”.
Is KST really psychic work?
Are we psychic? Do we need special powers to apply the KST Chiropractic Technique? Not at all! KST practitioners may appear psychic, but they are merely using a well-known stress response to obtain information from the body quickly and easily. This type of stress response is known as a Binary Biofeedback Device which is used by many thousands of practitioners in nearly every healthcare profession. There are many forms (devices) of binary biofeedback which comes “factory installed” into the nervous system of your body.
Correcting Nerve Stress
We are correcting a serious form of nerve stress caused by distortions in your spine and body structure. As some patients know, this stress is known as a subluxation which can cause physical and mental/emotional malfunction that is often associated with pain, weakness, loss of energy and disease of all types.
Gentle and Powerful
KST is very gentle and yet very powerful. KST allows us to quickly, easily and gently check and correct (or adjust) your body for subluxations wherever they may arise. Patients usually notice dramatic changes from their first visit. With KST your body usually holds its corrections for a much longer time so you can go for longer periods between adjustments.
The real power of KST is that people often experience retracing as deep, unhealthy stresses are leaving their bodies. This is an essential aspect of your journey toward health and wellness for it involves expressing and releasing unhealthy or unneeded physical and emotional stresses.
You have many layers. At each session we correct what your body is revealing at that time. Older injuries, distortions, subluxations and symptoms (both physical and emotional) may surface at later sessions. This release of old injuries is part of the healing process.
In Different Postures
A major advantage of KST is that it permits you to be analyzed and adjusted in different postures: standing, sitting, lying down and/or in the position of injury or dysfunction/subluxation.
This is very important because sometimes a subluxation can only be observed when you are in a certain posture. For example, in a car accident the person is seated and so their subluxations may only be revealed and completely corrected by their KST Doctor while the person is seated.
