When a Chiropractor palpates your spine they are checking
for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion effecting the nerve function is called a subluxation or nerve impingement syndrome. In a similar fashion to palpation, the ProAdjuster can determine whether the vertebra's motion is too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be too rigid (hypo-mobile). However, instead of utilizing the doctor's judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile, the ProAdjuster measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, the ProAdjuster can isolate a problem area faster and more accurately than most manual procedures.
While in Salida I decided to add a ProAdjuster computerized adjusting instrument and the results were unexpected. Many patients routinely drove 60 to 80 miles each way to be treated with the ProAdjuster. In fact I had a referral from Pagosa Springs that is 140 miles away.The treatment is gentle and non-invasive like some other chiropractic techniques. Also, patients tell me the treatments “hold” longer because they are very specific. I still do manual adjusting but the vast majority prefer the ProAdjuster.
