Chiropractors Knee-Chest Stand

Knee-Chest Stand

A client showed up at my shop one day with a box of wooden parts that he had started to build into a chiropractic knee-chest stand for accomplishing back adjustments. He had given up on the project, but wondered if I could pick up where he left off to finish the design and construction (circumstances I have since learned to avoid). Nonetheless I guess I needed work, so I agreed and forged ahead.

The chest support and knee platform are  adjustable vertically and horizontally using a brass pin inserted in the appropriate holes.

The Chest Stand




Placing the sternum on the padded stand and grasping the wooden handles allowed the patient to kneel to facilitate lower back adjustments
