Drop-piece tables have sections that move up and down under your body to treat specific segments of your spine. Tables have sections that separate to allow pregnant and post surgical patients to lie comfortably face down.
The drop piece can be adjusted to various resistances and raised up a short distance so that when the practitioner applies an adjustment, at the same time the table drops. The dropping of the table allows for a lighter manual adjustment.
What you can expect:
When the practitioner lifts up the section of the table it will raise under you very slightly and you’ll hear it click. As the practitioner gives the gentle adjustive thrust, you will feel the table “drop” down.
The sound of a drop-piece table can be quite dramatic! However, the adjustment itself is still a gentle and precise thrust.
