Our office offers instrument adjusting as either an alternative or compliment to traditional chiropractic manipulation. Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments. This office uses the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of our 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 can be used to treat different areas of the body. The benefits of this instrument are numerous. First, it provides extreme speed as the instrument is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than a manual chiropractic adjustment. The gentle thrust is faster than the body's tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment. Second, the instrument provides a controlled force with three different settings which can be adjusted based the part of the body and the age of the patient. The controlled low force thrust makes treatments comfortable. Finally, the instrument is specifically tuned to that natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles, and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.
