ArthroStim Adjustment: How Does It Work?

Adjustments using specialized instruments are gaining popularity among patients and practitioners of chiropractic due to their ease of use and safety features.

With the help of our Staff , you can learn all about the  Arthrostim and how it can help you.


What is ArthroStim Adjustment?

As part of instrument-assisted adjustments , Arthrostim has paved a new way in chiropractic care. This method is performed by a handheld instrument which helps a chiropractor in modulating the force applied during the treatment effectively.

Most people feel uneasy when their joints and trigger points are being ‘popped’ during traditional chiropractic treatments. But the ArthroStim adjustment technique helps patients feel comfortable as it does not make popping and cracking sounds.

While ArthroStim treatment is being performed, the chiropractor can exert the right amount of pressure needed to adjust your spinal cord and other parts of the body. By using the ArthroStim adjusting instrument, chiropractors can increase the force, starting from a few ounces to up to 40 pounds. Moreover, these thrusts can focus on small areas helping your chiropractor reach body parts that are otherwise difficult to reach through manual adjustment


How Does ArthroStim Instrument Adjusting Work?

To understand how ArthroStim works, you first need to know how chiropractic treatments generally work.

Chiropracxtic Adjustments create thrusts that trigger neural receptors of the affected area. These receptors then send signals to the brain about the pressure being exerted on the damaged area, which is induced by these adjustments. The brain then sends commands to the muscular system to initiate the healing process within the body.

ArthroStim works on the same principle but at a faster rate. As opposed to a single thrust being given by a chiropractor manually, this tool can deliver increments of 12 to 14 thrusts per second.

The energy is divided between these increments that a single thrust in one go would have given. With the help of these administered repetitive motions, receptors take less time and effort to deliver information to the brain.

The instrument itself looks like a drill and is also held like one. Undergoing instrument adjustments, such as ArthroStim adjustment, has fewer side effects than a manual adjustment. You may also notice the difference between muscle soreness after an ArthroStim adjustment.


Benefits Of ArthroStim

TheArthrostim Adjustment is useful for treating a wide range of illnesses and disorders because it allows a doctor to use much less force without compromising the efficiency of your therapy. Here are some examples of people who might gain the most from using the ArthroStim instrument:

  • Younger children
  • People experiencing severe or constant discomfort
  • People who are very sensitive
  • People who have an aversion to getting cracked
  • People with chronic neck discomfort
  • People who have reached a certain age

The neurological support provided by theAthrostim Instrumant is useful for everyone, including those who are significantly bigger and stronger than the average patient and so find it more challenging to adapt to a conventional single thrust.
