At Sports and Family
Chiropractic, we provide you with many options for subluxation
correction, one of which is the Pro Adjuster. The Pro Adjuster uses
modern technology to gently but efficiently adjust your vertebrae (bones
in your spine), as well as other joints in your body.
The Problem: Subluxations
Subluxations occur when
one or more of your vertebrae shift out of optimal position, causing
them to be too rigid (or not rigid enough), putting pressure on your
spinal nerves, straining your muscles, and potentially damaging the soft
tissue in surrounding areas. This can cause pain, decreased range of
motion in multiple areas of the body, and an overall decrease in health
and wellness. Trauma to our bodies in the form of disease, physical
accidents, and even normal life experiences, like pregnancy, moving into
a new home, or starting a new job can all cause subluxations. When your
body is healthy and functioning at 100%, you feel well, are pain-free,
and have a better quality of life. Removing subluxations will help you
to experience a higher level of health and wellness.
The Solution: The Pro Adjuster
During a manual
chiropractic adjustment, a Doctor of Chiropractic uses his/her sense of
touch to detect and correct subluxations. The Pro Adjuster uses advanced
technology to do the same things, providing a gentle approach that is
appropriate for everyone from infants to seniors. Many people who have
been fearful of experiencing a traditional manual adjustment, mostly
because they dont know what to expect, have found the Pro Adjuster to
be a wonderful solution for eliminating subluxations in a way that makes
them feel secure and comfortable.
The Experience: What Does the Pro Adjuster Feel Like
While you sit in a
special chair, one of our certified Doctors of Chiropractic moves a
small, U-shaped instrument down your spine, touching each of the
vertebra and allowing the Pro Adjuster to detect areas of misalignment.
After that, the Doctor holds the instrument on the problem vertebra and
the machine uses a series of gentle taps to shift the vertebra back into
optimal position. There are no sudden movements associated with this
type of an adjustment. After this, the Doctor may use the Pro Adjuster
on other joints, like your shoulder or jaw, using the same tapping
method as before.
