So you’ve heard about how chiropractic care can help reduce pain and improve health, but it seems, well, just a little scary. Maybe you’ve seen those pictures of chiropractors manually adjusting patients and you thought, “hey, my back already hurts, I don’t need someone leaning on it!” Or maybe you’ve had chiropractic care in the past and found it to be painful due to muscle or skin sensitivity.
Manual manipulation is safe and effective, but it’s not for everyone. Fortunately, there’s an alternative to manual manipulation called the Pro-Adjuster Technique.
The Pro-Adjuster technique uses advanced technology to detect and correct joints that are slightly out of place, also known as subluxated joints. The adjustments are just as effective as manual adjustments, but are done with a high degree of accuracy thanks to the high-tech device. This allows your chiropractor to be extra effective, so each adjustment is done right the first time.
When using the Pro-Adjuster technique, patients sit in a chair, eliminating any discomfort you may have from lying on your stomach. The actual adjustments are done using a series of gentle taps, no extra force required. This is great for anyone who experiences pain sensitivity, or anyone who is just a bit nervous about getting adjusted.
Thanks to the gentle nature of the adjustments, both young and mature patients can get safely and comfortably adjusted. The comfort of simply sitting in a chair especially helps younger patients feel more at ease with chiropractic care.
While many chiropractic methods focus only on your back, subluxations aren’t limited to your vertebrae! Any joint can move out of place, but only gentle, accurate techniques like the Pro-Adjuster technique can be used on your whole body to correct everything from knee pain to headaches to jaw pain.
