ArthroStim

Chiropractic 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.

The Arthrostim 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.

The Benefits...

The ArthroStim 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 include:

         infants and young children

         individuals in acute pain

         particularly sensitive individuals

         individuals who dislike being 'cracked'

         elderly individuals

 

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.
