The Pro-Adjuster: A Gentle Alternative to Manual Adjustment
If you have occasional or chronic back pain, you may already be aware of the benefits chiropractic adjustments can provide.
However, manual adjustments can make some people nervous and may not be ideal for individuals with certain conditions that make them more sensitive to sudden twisting movements. If you are one of these people, you can still receive the benefits of chiropractic care without the potential discomfort of manual adjustment. The Pro-Adjuster is a sophisticated type of technology that allows for gentle, safe manipulation without any popping or sudden twisting.
The Pro-Adjuster combines traditional chiropractic knowledge with sophisticated technology to gently prod the body into alignment and facilitate proper spinal function. It works to identify and treat problems with the nervous system, which controls every bodily function. When the nervous system is imbalanced, inflammation can cause the body to malfunction. If something is not done to correct the imbalance, chronic pain, sickness and diminished health can occur as a result.
The Pro-Adjuster detects problems with the nervous system by gently analyzing the spine to determine whether certain vertebrae move too fluidly or too rigidly. If the spine is too rigid, the nerve function can be negatively affected. When a chiropractor evaluates your spine manually, he or she is checking for joint rigidity, but the Pro-Adjuster’s measurements are more precise than manual procedures.
How It Works
NASA engineers use the same type of technology utilized in the Pro-Adjuster to determine the integrity of ceramic cooling tiles located on the outermost parts of space shuttles. In a chiropractic setting, the technology works by introducing a light force to a vertebra, then immediately measuring the reflective force via a piezoelectric sensor. A computer then interprets the data and determines the fluidity of the joint. All of this happens more quickly than the body’s ability to react, which yields highly accurate results.
Once the Pro-Adjuster detects where the joints are too rigid, it utilizes a highly precise and gentle oscillating force to manipulate only the abnormal areas. As it does so, nerve pressure is released in the area and pain subsides.
