Chiropractic care is sought out by so many because it is a natural, non-invasive, drug-free form of therapy. But just because we naturally treat the body, doesn’t mean we don’t stay on the cutting-edge of technology! Thanks to the latest technology there are a handful of ways that chiropractors can adjust your spine. Some of which can be done using instrument adjusting tools. At Bird Chiropractic, we offer the following instrument adjusting:
A practitioner's skilled-hands can do things that instruments cannot do. What instruments have to offer is that they can assist a practitioner's skilled-hands to deliver beneficial mechanical forces that would be difficult, or impossible, to produce on their own.
For example, the ArthroStim® instrument can produce a dozen spring-cushioned mini-toggle-recoil™ thrusts per second. Rapid, repetitive thrusting enables a practitioner to distribute the overall thrusting force over a series of thrusts. This helps to reduce the amount of peak force that would be required using a single thrust. This can be a great advantage for working with clients who are sensitive, or in pain.
Your chiropractor and thousands of other doctors around the world now use the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of their patients. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function.
The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.
The Proadjuster is a combination of the latest advances in chiropractic care and traditional methods, giving you the best of both worlds.
To have a better understanding of how the Proadjuster works, we have to understand the idea of palpation. When we palpate your spine, we are checking for the motion, fluidity, and/or rigidity of your spine. If we find improper motion that effects nerve function, that is called a subluxation. Similar to palpation, the Proadjuster is able to determine if the vertebra’s motion is too fluid or too rigid. The spine should be neither hypo-mobile (too rigid) nor hyper-mobile (too fluid). Once these subluxations and areas of hypo- or hyper-mobility are determined by the Proadjuster, we can begin your customized treatment plan. The Proadjuster is a tool that allows us to isolate an issue in a faster and more accurate fashion.
When we use the ProAdjuster, the process is both gentle and comfortable. The technology uses a precise force that oscillates with uninterrupted motion. It can increase the mobility of specific spinal segments by enabling or reducing motion in any abnormal areas. Basically, the ProAdjuster is lubricating the joint. The ProAdjuster uses soft taps to provide relief that many of our patients find comfortable and relaxing.
