Traditionally, the chiropractic adjustment consists of a single high-energy thrust in order to correct an area of the body and help stimulate the healing process. Through the adjustment a series of events are set into motion.
The precise movements produced by the adjustment stimulate 'neural receptors' in the area which, in turn, produce nerve impulses that relay crucial information back to the brain.
It is this 'neurological feedback system' that the brain relies upon in order to update its awareness about the areas of the body. Upon evaluation of changes, produced by the adjustment, the brain issues self-correcting commands to the muscular system, and other tissues, to bring about healing changes.
There have been recent developments in new ways to produce this important neurological feedback system. The Arthrostim Instrument is one new way of creating this valuable input. It offers the modern doctor many benefits for health-conscious people, using advanced technology to make chiropractic adjustments an enjoyable as well as a rewarding experience.
The Arthrostim Instrument can deliver 1 or up to 12-14 rapid series recoiling thrusts per second, which works with the natural feedback cycle of the nervous system. The results are an extremely comfortable yet highly effective adjustment. The effectiveness comes from the instruments controlled repetitive input, producing a cumulative 'snowballing' effect on the neural receptors. Therefore the Arthrostim Instrument, using greatly reduced forces, can create extensive neurological feedback to the brain.
These thrusts create a barrage of nervous system stimulation to the brain, which can help reset dysfunctional muscular and skeletal patterns. I use this instrument to mobilize joints of the spine and extremities and for acute muscular spasm, as a way to increase muscular metabolism to release muscular contraction.
Using the Arthrostim Instrument, I can maintain the effectiveness of the adjustment while reducing the amount of force that is applied. This dynamic combination allows for a wide range of conditions that can be managed more comfortably by the practitioner.
Although the Arthrostim Instrument can be used on all individuals, the following could especially benefit from the use of the Arthrostim Instrument:
