The Palmer Package is a variety of techniques taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the birthplace of chiropractic in 1895.
The main techniques include:
Diversified: First, an analysis of your spine is performed. With the malposition of one or more spinal bones identified, a specific manual thrust is administered, based on experience, practice and a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics.
Thompson: This technique is both a system of chiropractic analysis and a way to minimize the amount of energy needed to adjust the spine using a special table with drop-away sections.
Gonstead: A small heat-sensing instrument and full spine X-rays may be used to reveal vertebral subluxation complex patterns in the spine. To adjust your lower spine and pelvis, we’ll have you lie on your side. Vertebral Subluxation Complexes in the middle back are corrected as you assume a comfortable kneeling position. When you’re seated, we can restore the integrity of your spine without twisting or rotating your neck.
Toggle Recoil: While you’re in a totally relaxed state, usually lying on your side, a high-speed, low-force thrust is delivered to the upper bones of your spine and the hands are quickly withdrawn. This allows the body to use the energy as it sees fit to “reset” the spinal joints.
I have been seeing Dr. Cyr for a couple of years now am very happy with my visits. He has really helped me with my neck pain and overall well-being.

I was having constant headaches all the time. They were beginning to take over my daily life. After seeing Dr. Cyr they have completely gone away!! Highly recommended!!
I left my first apt, feeling so much better than when I came in! I'm 6 months pregnant so I was nervous but Dr. Cyr was great!
Dr. Cyr is an extraordinary chiropractor who provides excellent care to all patients. He has also been voted "Best Of The Best" of Rutland, VT for over 20 years. Many thanks Doctor!
Dr.Cyr has made a huge difference in how I feel... so much better. I am not in pain. If I could give 10 stars, I would. Thank you so much.
Thank you Dr. Cyr! I am smiling again. I am not in pain. I have suffered with chronic and acute sciatic. for awhile now. I have tried physical therapy and while I did get some relief, the pain and discomfort returned. I just recently had four visits with Dr. Cyr and I am thrilled with the results.
