Koren Specific Technique was developed by Dr. Tedd Koren, and is represented by its proponents as a healthcare protocol that can be used by any provider to improve their results and expand their ability to help others. KST grew out of Dr. Tedd Koren’s experience with Directional non-force technique (DNFT) developed by Richard Van Rumpt, DC and Spinal column stressology developed by Lowell Ward, DC.
In addition to its chiropractic application KST's more universal applications have permitted it to be used by healers of all kinds, even lay people to access information.
The application of correction procedures is of course dependent upon and limited to the individual's knowledge, and legal permission (licenses etc) to work on others. In late Fall 2003, while experimenting, Dr. Koren explains that he "happened upon what would later be called Koren Specific Technique". He started using it on his most difficult patient: himself; then his family, then other chiropractors and their families. These were all people who were still ill and suffering, some for many years although they had been adjusted by different techniques. he relates that "in most cases the responses were dramatic and surprising". Doctors kept telling me "This is the best adjustment I ever had in my life."
With KST it is represented that one can quickly and easily analyze and adjust the structural system for subluxations: cranial bones , TMJ, the entire spinal column, pelvis , pectoral girdle, sternum, coccyx, ribs, extremities - anything/anywhere. • Adjust disks. • Immediately know if the subluxation was corrected. • Low force. No "cracking" patients, no drops, no pressure. It’s easy on the doctors’ hands, arms, shoulders, etc. You don't need to hurt yourself while helping others. • Adjust the patient standing, sitting, lying and in position of injury or subluxation. • No table needed. • Locate and release anxiety or panic (fight/flight) subluxation patterns. • Correct "Hump" patterns. • Get results from the most difficult patients. • See dramatic retracing (a real measure of healing). • Gentle enough to use on everyone - infants to the very elderly. • You can specifically analyze and adjust yourself.
Simply put, it is represented that one will know exactly where to adjust (without X-rays, computers, MRI or other analytical equipment), when to adjust and whether or not you have corrected the subluxation; you cannot over-adjust. You'll see real changes from the first visit including immediate postural changes. You won't be pounding on the same subluxations visit after visit. Spines start healing and people start holding their adjustment for longer periods - and they refer more than ever. Dr. Koren represents that there are additional benefits: • This is a stand alone technique - but you can use it with other techniques if you wish. • There is no guess work - you will know if the subluxation was corrected. You will know where, when and when not to adjust. • It's easy to learn. • One can specifically analyze and adjust oneself.
