Low force drop adjustments have been an integral part of the Chiropractic profession, allowing patients to receive comfortable adjustments that are also comfortable for the Chiropractor to perform. The drop table is now standard in most chiropractic practices.
What makes the drop table so special? Its mechanism is based on the First Law of Motion by Newton that states:
“A body is in equilibrium if no force is acting upon it. If it is at rest, it remains so; if in motion, it persists in motion, unless an opposing force is met.”
This law was the catalyst for a safer, low-force, high-velocity adjustment that was kinder to the patient as well as the doctor.
