Impulse® Adjusting Instrument
Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments. That is why we use the Impulse Adjusting Instrument at The Chiropractic & Sports Injury Center. The state-of-the-art Impulse Adjusting Instrument is used to target dysfunctional spinal joints to relieve pain and improve functions. Therefore, a gentle adjustment is administered to those patients who require a gentle touch. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument delivers gentle and precise adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities for functional improvement. The instrument is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device to produce a controlled force that can be used to treat different areas of the body. The Impulse is specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results that are safe and effective for patients of all ages. The Instrument is especially effective for pediatric and geriatric patients requiring the "gentle touch."
Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse Adjusting Instrument feel like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Others report a sense of well-being or a soothing calm feeling.
If you prefer the gentle touch, just say so. We will use this state-of-the-art treatment technique as your treatment of choice.
