Arthrostim Adjusting Tool
Any chiropractic adjustment involves specific pressures and movements that help the body heal itself. As a result, neural receptors are activated, helping to create the nerve impulses that inform the brain about healing.
What is ArthroStim?
ArthroStim works the same way as any other manual chiropractic adjustment, but without the manual pressure. It delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second to the affected area of the body. These “thrusts” are rapid successive inputs; therefore, the patient only mildly feels the pressure. Many patients report the sensation as being exceptionally comfortable.
Due to the repetitiveness of this instrument, the neurologic feedback of receptors is constant and ongoing throughout the treatment, allowing for an effective result of pain relief and healing.
An essential feature of ArthroStim is its ability for pressure adjustment. Your physiotherapist will be able to manage the force that the thrusts provide based on the nature of your condition and the amount of pressure needed. This allows ArthroStim to effectively treat a wide range of different conditions.
ArthroStim treatments include:
- Patients who are nervous or unwilling to undergo manual chiropractic treatment.
- Patients who find discomfort or uneasiness with being “cracked.”
- Patients suffering from acute pain.
- Patients with lower pain tolerances.
