What is the Impulse Adjusting Instrument?
The Impulse Adjusting Instrument used in our office is one of the most advanced technologies to become available to chiropractors to assist in the delivery of chiropractic adjustments. Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, the adjusting instrument can replace some of the traditional manual methods of chiropractic.
The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is patented and registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia (TGA). It has been specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities, which may help to relieve pain and restore function for some people.
The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is controlled by high-tech micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force used by chiropractors to treat different areas of the body. In short, the impulse instrument gently and quickly moves the problem joint until the sensor detects that a correction has been made.
Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse Adjusting Instrument to create gentle chiropractic adjustments that are appropriate for patients of all ages. The Instrument has a specific setting for Paediatric care.
