What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, drug free healing practice based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of virtually every cell, tissue, organ, and system in your body. If trauma, illness, stress, or a chemical imbalance compromise the function of the nervous system, the spinal bones can deviate from their normal position and the nerves int he spinal column may not function properly. This is called a vertebral subluxation. Chiropractic adjustments relieve the vertebral subluxation and realign the spine, allowing your body’s nervous system to function as effectively and efficiently as possible, thereby restoring your health and well being.

A practitioner’s skilled-hands can do things that instruments cannot do. What instruments have to offer is that they can assist a practitioner’s skilled-hands to deliver beneficial mechanical forces that would be difficult, or impossible, to produce on their own.

​The ArthroStim® instrument​, invented in 1982, ​can produce a dozen spring-cushioned mini-toggle-recoil™ thrusts per second. Rapid, repetitive thrusting enables a practitioner to distribute the overall thrusting force over a series of thrusts. This helps to reduce the amount of peak force that would be required using a single thrust. This can be a great advantage for working with clients who are sensitive, or in pain. ​This technology is used to mimic the “hands on” feel that some patients are accustomed to.  ​​The different attachments are used for spinal adjusting or trigger points in muscles.
