Chiropractic Treatments – Using the latest technology, a unique health approach combines the ArthroStim, VibraCussor, and Impulse instruments that help may patients get well with literally no twisting or popping of their spine.
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, high tech, methods 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…
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 ArthroStim Instrument permits your practitioner to maintain the effectiveness of your adjustment while reducing the amount of force that is applied. This dynamic combination allows the practitioner 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
- elderly individuals
- particularly sensitive individual
- 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. We may use the ArthroStim Instrument by itself, or in combination with other adjusting methods, depending on the approach we know is best for your specific problems.
Definition of New Dimension VibraCussor Percussion Instrument:
Percussion is a new treatment modality for those who suffer from musculoskeletal pain and myofascial trigger syndrome. It is non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that may serve as a therapeutic alternative to trigger point and epidural injections or to be used when other treatments have failed. Performed on an outpatient basis, the New Dimension VibraCussor Percussion Instrument carries little or no risk and is relatively comfortable.
Suitable candidates for VibraCussor Percussion Instrument:
Individuals who suffer from musculoskeletal pain and local tenderness in areas characteristic for individual muscles or that characterize myofascial trigger syndrome, and in those who experience referred pain in a distribution specific for the individual muscle. The “trigger” or affected area of muscle is firm or hard to palpation; sometimes it has a ropy consistency and may appear contracted or in spasm.
General Indications for VibraCussor Percussion Instrument
- Lymphatic Impairment
- Post exertion muscle fatigue
- Trigger point
