What Is DNFT?

Direct Non-Force Technique ChiropracticDirectional Non-Force Technique® (DNFT) Chiropractic uses only gentle pressure to adjust misalignments and is recognized by many Chiropractic practitioners worldwide as the best method for correcting spinal misalignments.  DNFT was developed by the late Dr. Richard VanRumpt about 60 years ago and is now being further developed by Christopher John, DC, his successor.   Gentle enough for infants and the elderly yet so effective DNFT can dramatically improve athletic performance.  This non-force approach delivers powerful, lasting results without the use of sudden movements or cracking of joints, and x-rays are rarely required.  Most problems are treated successfully in four to eight visits.

Dr. Pam Lovell led the effort to bring DNFT Chiropractic to the central coast of California and particularly to San Luis Obispo County.  Her work with equestrians is well-known and Dr. Pam applies this technique to achieve results for patients of all ages and interests.
