A well known chiropractor named Major Bertrand DeJarnette developed the use of pelvic blocks to affect pelvic and whole body distortions in an extremely non-traumatic manner. These blocks or wedges were used on patients to utilize gravity as the slow force of correction. Orthopedic blocks can be placed right under the rib cage, clavicle, lumbars, knees, and other directional positions to adjust the vertebral segments and any extremities.
Our chiropractors use these paired wedges when the pelvic joints are rotated and dysfunctional, which can result in lower back and leg pain. So by utilizing these orthopedic blocks, our patients can regain motion in the joints and relief.
