Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.
Our office offers instrument adjusting as either an alternative or compliment to traditional chiropractic manipulation.
Kollins Chiropractic uses the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of our patients. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that can be used to treat different areas of the body.
This instrument provides gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments. Developed after years of research it provides:
Extreme speed - the instrument is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than a manual chiropractic adjustment. The gentle thrust is faster than the body's tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment.
Controlled Force - this instument has three different settings for controlling the force based on different parts of the body and the age of the patient. The controlled low force thrust makes treatments even more comfortable.
Frequency Tuned Waveform - the instrument is specifically tuned to natural frequencies of the body that joints, muscles, and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.
