Our No Popping, No Cracking Adjustments
What is KST?
In late 2003, as a result of much research and clinical experimentation, Dr. Tedd Koren developed an improved, gentle but yet very powerful form of chiropractic spinal care that he now calls Koren Specific Technique. This unique breakthrough approach allows patients to be analyzed better than ever before, with the adjustments holding stronger and for longer periods of time.
How Should a Patient Feel?
An adjustment should not hurt, in fact, most people are amazed at how gentle KST is. KST is so gentle that many newborn babies actually sleep through their first adjustment. Most people feel very relaxed after their first visit and even feel like they might need a nap. Throughout the day, you will feel your body processing your adjustment. Occasionally you may feel a little sore or you may feel a little worse before you get better. You also may notice sensations in other areas of your body. With KST this is normal and expected.

Frequently Asked Questions
What conditions do chiropractors treat?
If you asked this question, you probably want to hear that Chiropractors take care of headaches, low back pain, tingling, numbness, sciatica, shoulder pain, etc. However, we don’t treat symptomatic conditions. The only condition that we treat is a malfunctioning nervous system. As we improve the function of your nervous system, your symptom, whatever it is, usually goes away or decreases in severity.
How do I select a doctor of chiropractic?
The best way is to ask a friend a few questions about who they see. Five questions to ask:
1. If you could start all over, would you still go to that chiropractor?
2. How well does your Dr. listen?
3. Does your Dr. adjust extremities like the shoulder, feet, knees?
4. Does your Dr. take x-rays?
5. Does your Dr. educate you on why he/she is doing this or that?
Does chiropractic treatment require a referral from an MD?
No. Chiropractors are fully licensed by the State of California and as such, can accept people for care without an MD’s referral. The only time that an MD’s referral is necessary is if a very restrictive insurance policy, usually an HMO, requires it. Ask yourself this: do you need a referral from an MD to see a dentist? Of course not. Same thing with Chiropractic.
Is chiropractic treatment safe?
Yes it is. A number of studies have shown that Chiropractic care is not only safe, but cost effective. Not only that, but Chiropractors are skilled at giving gentle adjustments. After all, we study and practice our art for 4 ½ years in Chiropractic college before graduation. A study by Hawk found an approval rating among Chiropractic patients of 85%.
Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?
When you consider that many babies, toddlers, infants and children who see a Chiropractor have fewer and less serious colds than their non-treated friends, that colic usually goes away without drugs in a few visits, that for many bedwetting stops, that often earaches disappear overnight, that nursing many times improves because a baby can turn his/her head both ways for feeding, that constipation usually goes away quickly – again without drugs, that asthma responds well to Chiropractic care, then yes, I’d say that Chiropractic is appropriate for children.
Do insurance plans cover chiropractic?
Most PPO plans do cover Chiropractic care; and the coverage is usually on the low side. Most HMO plans don’t cover Chiropractic, and if one does, it usually requires an MD referral as a requirement.
