It is not unusual for people’s vertebrae to shift as they move about their daily activities. In fact, some people might even have discomfort that stems from their vertebrae shifting out of alignment. When people visit the chiropractor, there are a variety of techniques that the chiropractor might use to adjust the vertebrae and move them back into position. One of these techniques is the prone adjusting technique. This is a pleasant method that the chiropractor will use to move specific vertebrae back into position. Before visiting the chiropractor for this procedure, there is information that patients should know.

Prone Adjusting

Did you know...

Many people don’t realize that there are numerous procedures that the chiropractor can use to adjust the vertebrae in the back. Every procedure has its place in the chiropractic field and the prone adjusting technique is just one of several methods the chiropractor might employ. Furthermore, many people also don’t realize that the prone adjusting technique is used to adjust specific vertebrae in the back instead of the spine as a whole. Whereas some techniques adjust every vertebra in the spine, the prone adjusting technique is used to target specific vertebrae that need to move back into place.

Frequently asked questions

How do I join?

You join as a Hospital or Day Procedure Centre or as an Anaesthesia Group. DayCOR is a module of CAST - the Clinical Anaesthesia Survey Tool. For more information on how to set up a CAST account please refer to the DayCOR manual. You can get the manual here.

Who is responsible at the facility?

A committee assigned by the hospital to run the program including the Director of Anaesthesia or deputy, Director of the Day procedure Centre or deputy, a senior nurse and any other appropriate personnel, particularly anaesthetists. That committee also organises meetings to discuss reports or other connected activities.

Who admits the patients onto the system?

The discharge nursing staff. An automatic patient import facility connected to the hospital's patient management system is also available. Please contact us for more information.

Who receives the patient’s response?

The treating anaesthetist and an organised group of senior hospital staff with a joint email address for the purpose, typically an anaesthesia representative, an administrator and a senior nurse nominee.

What are clinical alerts and how do I handle them?

An alert email is sent to the treating anaesthetist and the hospital group. If the concern affects the anaesthetist, they act appropriately and communicate that action to the hospital for the medical record. If it affects the surgeon/proceduralist, the anaesthetist should forward the email to that person. Other issues will be handled by the hospital group. Positive comments initiate a “low grade” alert. Everyone enjoys praise.

Is there a cost?

There is a cost to the hospital of 52 cents per survey sent.

Are CPD points available?

Yes, if you use the program to provide a QA loop.
