Koren Specific Technique (KST) at Secrest Family Chiropractic

Frustrated with chronic or acute pain that just won’t stop no matter what treatment options you try? The Koren Specific Technique (KST) may be able to help. KST is a non-invasive chiropractic treatment technique developed by Dr. Tedd Koren that combines elements of enhanced, low-force adjustments and applied kinesiology. KST is an adjustment technique used by our chiropractor Dr. Daniel P. Secrest, DC to adjust patients whether they are standing, sitting or walking. The ability to adjust patients in a variety of different positions makes it easier for our Phoenix chiropractor to target pain at the source. This 21st Century chiropractic adjustment technique means you can receive a full body alignment on your first visit.

What to Expect from Koren Specific Technique (KST)

During your first KST adjustment, you may be surprised to hear our chiropractor tell you to “get into a position where you are in pain” whether that’s walking, standing or sitting. That’s just part of the first step, called “challenging”, where your entire structural system including the skull, jaw, spine, discs, hips, ribs, shoulders, arms, sternum, legs, feet, and hands will be assessed. Next, during the second step called “checking”, our chiropractor will test to see if a body part is in its correct position. KST uses the base of the skull as an indicator for proper alignment. During the final step, known as correcting, you will receive a very specific adjustment from an FDA-approved activation device that uses energy and force to realign the body and remove nerve interference.

When you get into different positions, such as standing or walking, that trigger your pain, Dr. Secrest, D.C. is better able to identify the root cause for dysfunction and remove these structural imbalances. Regular treatment sessions are part of “Memory Tracing”, which is designed to re-train the body to manage existing pain and mobility restrictions.
