Chiropractic Adjustment/ ArthroStim
The ArthroStim Instrument is a handheld device that is used for chiropractor adjustments. As opposed to traditional chiropractic techniques, use of the Arthrostim® does not cause popping and cracking noises in the joint which causes some people to feel uneasy. It is a gentle, mechanical method of easing the joints back into alignment, acting as an extension of the chiropractor’s hands. The amount of pressure can be adjusted from merely a few ounces up to 40 pounds, and can be used on a wide range of body areas, not only on the spine. The force of the thrust radiates through the joint and the tissues that surround it, releasing trigger points that are often the cause of muscle spasms. It is highly recommended for populations that may have trouble with the use of traditional chiropractic techniques, such as children and the elderly because of its gentleness and accuracy.
