Impulse Adjusting is done with the use of an electronic instrument that sends a pulse into the joint upon activation. Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments.
What does it feel like?
Impulse chiropractic adjustments feel like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless, and after the adjustment many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Others report a sense of well-being or a soothing, calm feeling. Of course, results vary from case to case and chronic conditions, inflammation, or muscle spasm may delay these positive effects.
Is it safe?
Impulse adjusting instrument is a patented and FDA registered device that was specifically designed to deliver a gentle and precise chiropractic adjustment to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and improve function. The Impulse adjusting instrument is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors use to treat different areas of the body.
Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse adjusting instrument to create gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages.
