Network chiropractic is an approach that has been developed by Donald Epstein, D.C. It draws upon chiropractic's traditional adjustment techniques and works with the body's Innate Intelligence. Its uniqueness lies in its use of a unified system of twelve techniques with special attention to their timing and sequencing. Using light, supple movements, practitioners adjust each vertebra in relationship to the rest of the spine, since they believe that spine protects an essential channel of energy and information to the body.
Dr. Epstein's system of Network Spinal Analysis integrates points of agreement from diverse chiropractic approaches. He observed from clinical experience that not all subluxations of the spine are the same. There are two types of subluxations, structural (arising from physical stresses) and facilitated (arising from emotional stresses). The practitioner addresses them in different ways.
Network chiropractic combines a variety of chiropractic techniques to enable the practitioner to adjust subluxations with the precise amount and type of force suggested by clinical findings. This is different from attempting to match the vertebra being adjusted to a specific technique. The difference lies in the sequence of the adjustments and the networking of the various methods.
