Logan Basic Technique

The Logan Basic Technique is a chiropractic method developed by Dr. Hugh B. Logan in the early 20th century. This technique focuses on the body's foundation, specifically the sacrum and pelvis, to achieve overall spinal health and balance. Known for its gentle and non-invasive approach, the Logan Basic Technique is widely respected for its effectiveness in addressing various musculoskeletal issues.

How It Works

The Logan Basic Technique emphasizes the correction of spinal and pelvic distortions by applying light pressure to specific areas of the sacrum. The chiropractor uses their thumb to apply a gentle, sustained pressure to the sacrotuberous ligament. This precise application of force helps to realign the pelvis and sacrum, which in turn, influences the alignment and function of the entire spine.

Key Benefits

     - Gentle Approach: The technique uses light, sustained pressure, making it ideal for patients who require a softer touch, such as children, the elderly, or those with acute pain.

     - Holistic Focus: By addressing the foundational structures of the spine, the Logan Basic Technique promotes overall spinal health and can alleviate a wide range of conditions.

     - Improved Balance: Correcting pelvic and sacral misalignments can lead to better posture, balance, and a reduction in compensatory issues throughout the body.

What to Expect

During a Logan Basic Technique session, the chiropractor will first perform a detailed examination to identify areas of misalignment and tension. The patient typically lies face down on the treatment table. The chiropractor will then apply gentle, sustained pressure to the sacrotuberous ligament while simultaneously using their other hand to support and adjust the lumbar spine and pelvis. This process helps to release tension, realign the pelvis, and improve the overall balance of the spine.

Ideal for

The Logan Basic Technique is suitable for patients of all ages and is particularly beneficial for those seeking a gentle, non-forceful chiropractic approach. It is effective for treating conditions such as lower back pain, sciatica, pelvic misalignments, and other spinal issues that may affect posture and overall musculoskeletal health.
