The ArthroStim Instrument delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second. By dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive inputs, the ArthroStim Instrument modulates the (peak) force. This allows your doctor to administer an extremely comfortable, and highly effective, adjustment.
The secret to the instrument's effectiveness comes from its controlled repetitive input. This input produces an cumulative snowballing effect on neural receptors. This permits the ArthroStim Instrument to create extensive neurological feedback to the brain using greatly reduced forces.
By utilizing controlled, incremental thrusts, the ArthoStim Instrument is also able to stimulate specific neural receptors (mechanoreceptors) without activating undesirable pain receptors.
The ArthroStim Instrument permits your practitioner to maintain the effectiveness of your adjustment while reducing the amount of force that is applied. This dynamic combination allows the practitioner to comfortably manage a wider range of conditions.
Individuals that may especially benefit from the use of the ArthroStim Instrument include:
- Infants and young children
- Individuals in acute pain
- Particularly sensitive individuals
- Individuals who dislike being 'cracked'
- Elderly individuals
Even individuals who are larger and stronger (and may be difficult to adjust with a single thrust) can benefit from the ‘neurological assist' that the ArthroStim Instrument provides. Your practitioner may use the ArthroStim Instrument by itself, or in combination with other adjusting methods, depending on the approach they feel is best for your specific case.
