Are you nervous about the “popping”, “snapping”, or “cracking” sound that comes with being adjusted by a chiropractor? Or do you feel like being adjusted manually (by hand) seems too aggressive or even scary sometimes? If so, you are not alone, but there’s no need to worry. We have another way of adjusting the spine without the use of hands and without the “popping”, “snapping”, and “cracking” sounds. Let us introduce you to Arthrostim!
Arthrostim is an instrument that works by delivering small, gentle and repetitive taps, or “thrusts” to the area being treated, as opposed to one single thrust by hand. The Arthrostim instrument allows us to improve mobility in specific joints and gently realign the joints with light pressure. This cutting-edge instrument helps relieve pain, improve motion and mobility, loosen and ease muscle pain and tension, and facilitate the healing process. It works great as a supplemental tool for all patients, but in particular it is a staple for cases with individuals who may be pregnant, have osteoporosis, and kids generally love it too!
At Enhanced Chiropractic in Flint, Dr. Weiss uses this wonderful instrument to help patients with their neck pain, low back pain, headaches, etc. every single day! Give us a call to see how we can help you too!Schedule an Appointment
