06 Aug ProAdjuster Technology Takes Chiropractic Care to the Next Level
Written by Tony C. Jensen, Doctor of Chiropractic
When it comes to back and neck pain chiropractors believe in treating the source of the problem. By checking the vertebrae for misalignment, it may be discovered that they are unable to move and function as they were designed. These misaligned vertebraes are termed subluxation, fixation or motion defects. If not treated, the end result is Nerve Impingement Syndrome. Ultimately this translates to nervous system interference resulting in pain or ill health. One shouldn’t have to rely on medications to get through the day; most may only mask the problem, instead of treating it.
ProAdjuster technology was created to keep up with people in today’s society who are consistently asking their bodies to perform at higher levels and who want to feel better, safely and naturally.
What is the ProAdjuster?
The ProAdjuster chiropractic treatments are performed comfortably, while sitting in an upright position without the need for turning or sudden movements. These treatments are safe and gentle for newborns, as well as the elderly with osteoporosis.
Significant advances in computer and engineering technologies have allowed chiropractors to both analyze and treat the human body in such a way that has never been realized before.
How does it work?
By placing a sensitive instrument at each vertebral level of the spine, the doctor will apply very slight pressure. The instrument will accurately and comfortably measure the resistance of the vertebrae of your spine and record the data.
An algorithm* is formulated before a treatment can be designed. The computer screen will display a waveform that matches the resistance of the vertebrae. A normal vertebra would produce a symmetrical bell-shaped waveform. A dysfunctional vertebral joint will produce erratic or aberrant waveforms; they may be too high, too low, or asymmetrical. These waveforms indicate the area and type of malfunction.
The doctor can now apply the treatment via the percussive instrument using a very light and steady pressure. When the computer registers 10 consecutive “taps” measured equally, it knows that the vertebrae is less rigid and automatically stops the percussion. This information allows the doctor to isolate and treat a problem area faster and more accurately than manual procedures. After the computerized treatment, the ProAdjuster’s sophisticated re-analysis allows both you and the doctor to chart your progress toward recovery.
* Algorithm-interprets a series of formulas or data and then gives the answer, much like a translator listening to 15 people speaking 15 different languages. Imagine if that were funneled into a device that could take the information and translate it into one language that everyone could understand.
