Manual Chiropractic Adjustments
Manual chiropractic adjustments are controlled forces, delivered by hand to joints of the spine and extremity. There are many chiropractic techniques that utilize manual chiropractic adjustments. Some manual chiropractic adjustments may result in a “crack” or a “pop”. This sound is due to an audible release of gas (oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide) from with the restricted joint.
The Arthrostim is a handheld machine used to deliver a precise chiropractic adjustment to spinal and extremity joints. The ArthroStim is also capable of delivering a consistent thrust at 12-14 times per second, a useful tool for joint mobilization.
The Integrator is the handheld tool used to deliver a precise toggle recoil thrust (1/10,000th of a second) to joints of the spine. This instrument is capable to delivering a torque in addition to toggle release thrust.
