A breakthrough in healing


This Computerized Adjustment Tool Helps to Fine Tune the Nervous System


Imagine 30 to 40 years ago, if you were told that dentistry would be painless, that doctors would watch television to perform surgeries, that brain surgery for tumors could be done with a laser, that fetuses could be operated on within the uterus, that knife-less surgery could be performed- you would not have believed us. By the same token, would you believe us if we told you that Chiropractic treatments and reorientation of the nervous system could be done comfortably, while you were sitting in an upright position without any turning or sudden movements? Would you believe that newborns as well as the elderly with osteoporosis can be treated safely and gently?

Advances in computers and engineering technologies have been able to uniquely blend with Chiropractic in order to both analyze and treat the human body in such a way that was never before realized.

The potential for the human being to end pain and to achieve their peak nervous system function has never been greater. Humans are consistently asking their bodies to perform at higher levels. Now we have the techniques and the technology to match the demand placed on the spine and the nervous system. We now have the capability to fine tune our own energy and enhance every aspect of our lives.


Complex Technology, Simple Solution. Computerized Adjustments


You can achieve maximum health for your body now and in the future beginning with a simple anatomical concept. The nervous system (the brain and all the nerves) controls every function of your body. If this network is interfered with, pain ensues, as does bodily malfunction, resulting in muscles shutting off and becoming weak. That ‘something’ you can do to improve performance and maximize health is to maximize the health of your nervous system. There are several ways to do this. This revolutionary method allows a doctor of Chiropractic to use modern technology to analyze and treat your nervous system.


How does it work?


To better understand, let’s examine the idea of something called palpation. Palpation is when the Chiropractor pushes on your spine to check for joint fluidity, motion and/or rigidity. Improper motion effecting the function of the nerve is what creates things such as, poor posture, prolonged recovery and pain, just to name a few. In the same manner to palpation, this computerized technology can determine whether the spinal joints are too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be too rigid (hypo-mobile) or too fluid (hyper-mobile). However, instead of only relying on the doctors judgment of these areas to understand which areas are which, the technology measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, problems are able to be isolated quicker and with a great deal of accuracy.

How can this be so gentle and comfortable and still change my spine?


The computerized adjustment tool utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling motion in the abnormal areas. In other words, the computerized adjustments are ‘unsticking’ joints. Have you ever seen a woodpecker tapping on a tree? It is hard to believe, but you can watch them bore right through the hardest wood! The adjustments will tap in a similar fashion, but uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body and not create damage. 


Combining Tradition with Technology 


Following an examination, the doctor will determine the correct treatment force to apply to the specific area of treatment. The way that is determined is by applying a light mechanical test force to the area (no more than the force used to press the power button on your computer). This is different from palpation, because when applying ‘hands-on’ pressure, the body can sometimes enter into a normal defense (postural mechanism). This causes the muscles to contract and guard against an impact. If you have ever ‘flinched’ at something, you know exactly what is meant by this. The piezoelectric sensor in the instrument responds and registers information faster than the body’s ability to react. Therefore, a precise and accurate picture of the extent of rigidity or fluidity of each joint is reflected. Once completed, a light force is introduced in the joint to check motion, it is reflected back to the piezoelectric sensor, which measures the reflective force, sending it to the computer for interpretation. All of this occurs before the muscle can respond in its normal way. 

This same technology was also used by NASA engineers to evaluate the integrity of the ceramic cooling tiles outside the space shuttle. Even the aviation and civil engineering industries have used this technology in order to test metal fatigue in aircraft and bridge spans.

Chiropractors are now able to use this highly sophisticated technology applied to the human body to determine proper function.
