Benefits of using ArthroStim Instrument

As technology advances, your chiropractor might discover new ways to provide treatment to his/her patients.  As you can imagine, your doctor sees many different types of people of all shapes and sizes every day, each with different sensitivity levels and pain thresholds.  With such a wide variety of patients needs, sometimes the manual adjustment a chiropractor can provide might not be as effective of efficient, which is why your doctor might use a tool like the Arthrostim Instrument to enhance their treatment sessions.

What is the ArthroStim?

The ArthroStim Instrument is a handheld machine that aids your chiropractor in performing adjustments.  This powerful tool delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second, making it much stronger and faster than a typical single thrust administered by a chiropractor.  By dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive inputs, the ArthroStim instrument modulates the force you physician applies in treatment, but in a much more comfortable and effective manner.

How does it work?

In order to understand how an ArthroStim Instrument works, you have to understand how chiropractic adjustment works.  A chiropractic adjustment produces precise movements which stimulate "neural receptors" in an injured/affected area.  These receptors will then produce nerve impulse which transmit important information to the brain. The brain will process this information and use it to update its awareness about the condition of an area.  Once the brain evaluates the changes prompted by the adjustment, it can begin sending out self-correcting commands to the muscular system, and other systems, to bring about healing within your body.  The Arthrostim is just another way to administer these adjustments, but it is faster, more comfortable and efficient due to its controlled repetitive input.  This input produces a "snowballing" effect on neural receptors and allows it to transmit more information to the brain with less effort, pain and force.

What are the benefits?

The ArthroStim Instrument allows your doctor to maintain the effectiveness of your treatment while greatly reducing the amount of force that is applied, which makes it easier to use on a wide variety of conditions and ailments.                                                                                                                                Individuals that may especially benefit from the use of the ArthroStim Instrument include:

  • Infants and young children
  • Individuals with acute or extreme pain
  • Particularly sensitive individuals
  • Individuals who dislike being "cracked"
  • Elderly individuals

Even people who are larger and stronger and therefore more difficult to adjust from a standard single thrust will benefit from the "neurological assist" that the ArthroStim Instrument provides.  Typically, your chiropractor might use the ArthroStim Instrument by itself or in combination with other adjusting tecniques, but of course this will depend on the approach they feel is best for your specific treatment.  Speak to your chiropractor to find out about the methods they use, and weather or not they think ArthroStim will be right for you.
