Our Techniques

Dr. Kitzman has a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Dr. Kitzman is extremely thorough and checks the entire body, not just the spot of the complaint. 

Palmer College of Chiropractic is known for providing an extensive and carefully crafted program in chiropractic technique as part of its core curriculum. A wide variety of techniques have been developed by chiropractic innovators, and over the years since its founding in 1897, Palmer has developed what is known throughout the profession as the “Palmer Package.” This is a group of techniques that, once mastered, provide the Palmer graduate with the technique expertise needed to deal with practically any clinical situation that may emerge in practice.


The core curriculum courses in the Palmer Package are mostly organized by regions of the spine, including courses on cervical, thoracolumbar, pelvic and extremity adjusting technique and management. These courses include elements of the techniques developed by chiropractic innovators, such as Toggle Recoil (developed by Dr. B.J. Palmer), Diversified (developed by Dr. D.D. Palmer), Thompson (developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson) and Gonstead (developed by Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead).


Dr. Kitzman has taken all of the differnt techniques he has learned over the years along with his extensive clinical experience and modified them into his own exremely effective hands-on technique.
