Therapeutic Exercises (Pettibon Technique)

Many people only consider seeing a chiropractor when they have been in an accident or are experiencing pain. But the best time to see a chiropractor is before you are in pain. Regularly visiting the chiropractor is the best way to keep your spine healthy.

Pettibon Technique Renton“At Hughes Chiropractic and Massage, our team is dedicated to keeping you feeling your best. One of the ways we do this is with the Pettibon System, which emphasizes whole-body care including posture correction, proper nutrition, and muscular growth.

What is the Pettibon Technique?

The Pettibon System provides whole body care, from the spine and posture correction to nutrition and muscle strengthening. The system was developed by Dr. Burl Pettibon over 30 years ago. Pettibon created the process to provide ultimate spine care using weights and exercises to reduce pain, restore alignment, and strengthen your body. With the Pettibon System, patients and practitioners work together.

Strengthening Your Spine

The Pettibon Technique is a different way of approaching overall health. Patients do not wait to see the doctor. Instead, they begin the appointment by doing warmup exercises to stretch their muscles, ligaments, and discs.

Various types of equipment will be used with our chiropractor, including the Therapeutic Wobble Chair and the Repetitive Cervical Traction unit. The Pettibon System is an ongoing process that the patient conducts both with our doctor and at home.

Pettibon Weighting System

The Pettibon Weighting System consists of specially designed weights that the patient wears twice a day for 20 minutes or more. Wearing the weights alter the body’s center of mass, balancing the body and allowing the nervous system, muscles, and spine to react.

Over time, the weighting system will correct your posture and strengthen your body to prevent your spine from falling out of alignment in the future.
