Logan Basic Technique and the Logan System of Body Mechanics
Developed by Logan founder, H.B. Logan, DC, Logan Basic is one of the lowest-force adjustive techniques. The technique is based on light, sustained force exerted against a specific contact point on the sacrum at the base of the spine. Auxiliary contacts at various points in the spine, or along specific muscles such as the piriformus, also can be used. Basic Technique uses the muscular structure surrounding the sacrum as a lever system for balancing the entire structure of the spine.
Integral to use of Logan Basic Technique is the Logan System of Body Mechanics. Dr. Logan’s system of calculating compensatory mechanisms, that occur as a result of postural distortions and correction of those distortions, also serves as a foundation for overall understanding of spinal biomechanics that can be applied using virtually any adjusting technique.
