Do Manual Chiropractic Adjustments Make You Nervous?
As part of your chiropractic treatment, it is optional to have the doctor use a computer assisted physical diagnostic and treatment instrument called a Professional Adjuster. This instrument uses technology borrowed from the aerospace industry to analyze motion of the spinal segments. Motion frequencies are displayed on the computer screen which allows the doctor to use his experience and training to determine which specific segment needs to move and what to leave alone.
Sigma Instrument Methods – Gentle, Precise, Preferred
Achieving Wellness with a New Chiropractic Technology
A chiropractic treatment is referred to as a spinal adjustment. Most chiropractors perform a spinal adjustment with their hands. However, a growing number of chiropractors are beginning to use state-of-the-art instruments to deliver a safer, gentler, and just as effective treatment.
Even though all chiropractic methods are safe, some people prefer not to receive the so-called “twisting” and “cracking” of the neck and back. This type of chiropractic care gives them the option to receive a “hands-free” chiropractic adjustment.
In our office we use the Pro-Adjuster, which is an FDA-approved instrument developed by Sigma Instruments that has been used by thousands of chiropractors internationally since 1996. This incredible device acts as both an analysis tool and can also deliver a specific, and extremely gentle spinal adjustment.
How Does The Treatment Work?
The way this amazing device works is that it measures the muscle and joint tension of the neck and back. You do not have to disrobe when receiving the analysis or spinal adjustment, as it will perform both the analysis and treatment over a single layer of clothing.
After measuring the muscle and joint tension of the spine it will display a graph on a computer, showing where the problem areas are.
Once it has been determined that you are a candidate for these types of treatments, the Pro-Adjuster can safely and gently reduce the muscle and joint tension of the neck and back. So it will relax the surrounding muscles, increase the movement of the joint, and reduce any irritation of the surrounding spinal nerves, which in turn will help to reduce or eliminate the pain.
Why Do Many People Prefer This Type Of Treatment?
The reason why many people prefer this type of spinal adjustment is because they are extremely gentle and relaxing. Even though all chiropractic methods are safe, some people prefer not to receive the so-called “twisting” and “cracking” of the neck and back. As a result, this type of chiropractic care is a viable alternative to those who don’t want to receive a “hands-on”‘ adjustment.
