Pierce Stillwagon Technique

The Pierce-Stillwagon Technique is a system of analyzing and adjusting the spine that combines previously understood concepts with a very simplified, logical and effective procedure to correct vertebral subluxation complex. Developed by Dr. Glenn Stillwagon and Dr. Vern Pierce beginning in 1963, the technique is practiced by approximately 20% of all chiropractors. This full spine technique requires the use of a hi-lo table with drop pelvic and cervical pads. It uses X-ray analysis, instrumentation and other physical findings to eliminate guess-work from case management. The X-ray analysis and instrumentation used is Thermography, a non-invasive, non-contact temperature measurement technique. Thermographic examination has resulted in accurate measurement of skin temperatures of the back, which relate directly to the effectiveness of the chiropractic adjustment. Stillwagon Seminars and Technique use VISI-THERM thermography, which substantiates the findings of the initial patient examination, and thereby assists the doctor in assessing the efficacy of his or her treatment. Studies demonstrated that a significant percentage of what were originally considered complaints of undocumented origin eventually led to diagnosis of reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), nerve root irritation, and thoracic outlet syndrome. For this reason, thermography has been shown to be of significant value in detecting otherwise overlooked organic disorders, particularly those of sympathetic dysfunction that may be diagnosed as psychogenic in nature. The adjustment is given by hand, in a high velocity, low force manner.
