adjustments help stimulate the body to heal itself.
Traditionally, chiropractors have used single high-energy
thrusting and pulling movements to adjust areas of the body. The
adjustment sets a series of events into motion. The adjustment
produces precise movements which stimulate 'neural receptors' in
an area. These receptors, in turn, produce nerve impulses which
relay crucial information to the brain.
The brain depends on
this 'neurological feedback stream' to update its awareness about
an area. Once the brain evaluates the changes prompted by the
adjustment, it issues self-correcting commands to the muscular
system, and other systems, to bring about healing changes.
Recently, new ways
of producing this important neurological feedback stream have been
developed. The ArthroStim Instrument is one of the most effective
and comfortable tools for creating this valuable input in an area.
Instrument delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second. By
dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive
inputs, the ArthroStim Instrument modulates the (peak) force.
This allows your doctor to administer an extremely comfortable,
and highly effective, adjustment. The secret to the instrument's
effectiveness comes from its controlled repetitive input. This
input produces a cumulative 'snowballing' effect on neural
receptors. This permits the Arthrostim Instrument to create
extensive neurological feedback to the brain, using greatly
reduced forces. By utilizing controlled, incremental thrusts, the
ArthroStim Instrument is also able to stimulate specific neural
receptors (mechanoreceptors and proprioreceptors) without
activating undesirable pain receptors.
Instrument permits us to maintain the effectiveness of your
adjustment while reducing the amount of force that is applied.
This allows us to comfortably manage a wider range of conditions.
Individuals that may
especially benefit from the use of the ArthroStim Instrument
and young children
individuals in acute pain
particularly sensitive individuals
individuals who dislike being 'cracked'
Even individuals who
are larger and stronger (and may be difficult to adjust with a
single thrust) can benefit from the 'neurological assist' that the
ArthroStim Instrument provides.
