Arthrostim-the Modern Alternative in Chiropractic Adjustments
The Arthrostim is a natural solution and revolutionary procedure that is helping hundreds of neck and back pain sufferers get out of pain safely and gently without any side effects. It is a contemporary chiropractic adjustment instrument that is an alternative to traditional manual adjustments. It was designed to gently and safely decrease the muscle and joint tension in the neck and back, thereby reducing any muscle spasm present, increasing joint movement, and eliminating any nerve pressure or irritation
How does it work?
The Arthrostim instrument works with the natural feedback cycle of the nervous system. It delivers a rapid series of controlled thrusts. These thrusts create a barrage of nervous system stimulation to the brain which can help reset dysfunctional muscular and skeletal patterns. The precise movements produced by the adjustment stimulate ‘neural receptors’ in the area which, in turn, produce nerve impulses that relay crucial information back to the brain.
It is this ‘neurological feedback system’ that the brain relies upon in order to update its awareness about the areas of the body. Upon evaluation of changes produced by the adjustment, the brain issues self-correcting commands to the muscular system and other tissues to bring about healing changes.
There have been recent developments in new ways to produce this important neurological feedback system. The Arthrostim device is one new way of creating this valuable input. It offers the modern doctor many benefits for health-conscious people, using advanced technology to make chiropractic adjustments an enjoyable as well as a rewarding experience.
The Arthrostim instrument can deliver 1 or up to 14 rapid series recoiling thrusts per second, which works with the natural feedback cycle of the nervous system. Because the Arthrostim oscillations are so rapid, they do not fire pain receptors so the treatment is comfortable yet highly effective. The effectiveness comes from the instruments controlled repetitive input, producing a cumulative ‘snowballing’ effect on the neural receptors. Therefore the Arthrostim, using greatly reduced forces, can create extensive neurological feedback to the brain which can help reset dysfunctional muscular and skeletal patterns.
This instrument can be used to mobilize joints of the spine and extremities and for acute muscular spasms as a way to increase muscular metabolism to release muscular contraction.
Who can use it?
Individuals that may especially benefit from the use of the Arthrostim include:
- Infants and young children
- Individuals in acute or chronic pain
- Particularly sensitive individuals
- Individuals who dislike being ‘twisted’
- Individuals with disc or related spinal conditions
- Individuals with arthritic conditions
- Individuals with osteoporosis
- Elderly individuals
Even individuals who are large and stronger (and may be difficult to adjust with a single thrust) can benefit from use of the arthrostim.
By utilizing the Arthrostim, effectiveness of the adjustment can be maintained while reducing the amount of force that is applied. This dynamic combination allows for a wide range of conditions that can be managed more comfortably by the practitioner.
What is it used for?
There are virtually no limitations to the Arthrostim; the following is a short list of potential uses:
- Ribs blocked in a holding pattern
- Adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder
- Deep fascial adhesions
- Lower cervical laxity coupled with upper thoracic rigidity
- Muscle spasms
- Adjusting vertebrae
- Adhesions in joints and muscles
- Trigger points
- Realigning of joints
