San Diego Chiropractor uses Arthrostim for Gentle Chiropractic Care
Chiropractor Dr Ashley J. Herfindahl provides both classic, hands-on chiropractic care and gentle instrument adjusting with the Arthrostim. This instrument looks like a hand-held drill, but with a padded tip that Dr. Herfindahl uses to deliver very precise, pain-free and effective spinal manipulations without the force or thrust applied by manual adjusting techniques. The Arthrostim treatment provides great results for a wide variety of people in San Diego who need pain and injury relief.
Non-Force Chiropractic Adjustments: Arthrostim for Gentle Pain Relief
If you have ever felt nervous about trying chiropractic care for natural pain relief because you expect popping, cracking and discomfort, then Arthrostim adjusting is for you. In fact, this gentle and extremely precise instrument provides the same benefits of our chiropractor’s traditional adjustments to a wider variety of patients including those who are very sensitive to touch like children and seniors.
How the Arthrostim Chiropractic Instrument Works
Based on your diagnosis and individual needs, our chiropractor can adjust the Arthrostim to deliver just the right amount of energy from the instrument. Dr. Herfindahl precisely places the padded tip (or tips) of the Arthrostim at the exact location where the adjustment needs to be made. He can adjust the direction of the energy to this location to get just the right amount of movement to correct posture.
When the instrument is engaged, it will vibrate 12 times per second, delivering a percussive, yet gentle, non-force manipulation, bringing the vertebrae back into correct alignment; no twisting, popping or cracking. Additionally, the vibration rate of the Arthrostim stimulates the body’s proprioceptors (sensory nerve receptors) that regulate correct alignment and motion of the musculoskeletal system. The result is a simultaneous mixture of relief and relaxation that our patients rave about.
Comprehensive Pain Relief and Injury Treatment with Arthrostim
The Arthrostim can be an integral part of treatment for any condition that can be alleviated by chiropractic care. This includes everything from back and neck pain to sciatica, headaches, whiplash and bulging or herniated discs and more.
