About the ArthroStim
Chiropractic adjustments help stimulate the body to heal itself. The adjustments stimulate “neural receptors” in an area of the body. These receptors, in turn, produce nerve impulses which relay crucial information to the brain.
The brain depends on this “feedback stream” to update its awareness about an area of the body. Once the brain evaluates the changes prompted by the adjustment, it issues self-correcting commands to the muscular system, and other systems, to bring about healing changes.
The ArthroStim Instrument delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second by dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive inputs; the ArthroStim Instruments modulates the peak (force). This allows your doctor to administer an extremely comfortable, and highly effective, adjustment.
The instrument’s effectiveness comes from its controlled repetitive input. This input produces a cumulative ‘snowballing’ effect on neural receptors. This permits the ArthroStim Instrument to create extensive neurological feedback to the brain, using greatly reduced forces.
By utilizing controlled, incremental thrusts, the ArthroStim Instrument is also able to stimulate specific neural receptors (mechanoreceptors) without activating undesirable pain receptors.
The ArthroStim Instrument permits your practitioner to maintain the effectiveness of your adjustment while reducing the amount of force that is applied. This dynamic combination allows the practitioner to comfortably manage a wider range of conditions.
Individuals that may especially benefit from the use of the ArthroStim Instrument include:
• infant and young children
• individuals in acute pain
• particularly sensitive individuals
• individuals who dislike being “cracked”
• elderly individuals
Your practitioner may use the ArthroStim Instrument by itself, or in combination with other adjusting methods, depending on the approach they feel is best for your specific case.
