Welcome to the new technology of chiropractic care. While a considerable number of chiropractic treatments are still performed by hand, the Impulse Adjusting Instrument offers an exciting new option in chiropractic care.

This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body. Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse Instruments to create gentle chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages.

The unique benefits of the Impulse Instrument are:

1. Extreme speed. Impulse is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than manual chiropractic adjustments. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment.

2. Controlled force. Impulse has three different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages. The controlled low force thrust of the Impulse make treatments comfortable.

3. Frequency tuned waveform. Impulse is specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.

There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments, but rather very precise and targeted adjustments. This offers a fantastic option for those individuals that do not work well with manual techniques or if their condition contra-indicates the use of manual techniques.

What does it feel like? Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse Adjusting Instrument feel like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Others report a sense of well-being or a soothing calm feeling. Of course, results vary from case to case and chronic conditions, inflammation or muscle spasms may delay these positive effects.

The Impulse can be used for all areas of the body other chiropractic techniques work with. If you have not been introduced to the technique and would like to find out more about it, ask your doctor on your next visit.

As always, the techniques used with a patient are individually tailored to their needs. We often will blend chiropractic techniques and muscle work to ensure the patient’s maximal response, in the shortest time, while making the treatment very comfortable.
