ArthroStim Instrument Adjusting
Are you suffering from pain but nervous about receiving manual chiropractic treatments? If so, ArthroStim could greatly benefit you.
ArthroStim is an instrument that your physiotherapist will use to provide pressure and gentle “thrusts” to the affected area. This helps to ease inflammation to the injured or damaged tissues, provide pain relief, and facilitate the healing process.
ArthroStim is a safe, effective, and non-invasive way to relieve pain naturally, without participating in manual treatments. To learn more about ArthroStim and if you would be a strong candidate, don’t hesitate to contact Physiomed today.
How does AthroStim work?
With any chiropractic adjustment, specific movements and pressures are made in order to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. When this happens, neural receptors are stimulated, which help produce the nerve impulses that provide information to the brain regarding healing.
ArthroStim works the same way as any other manual chiropractic adjustment, but without the manual pressure. It delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second to the affected area of the body. These “thrusts” are rapid successive inputs; therefore, the pressure is only mildly felt by the patient. In fact, many patients report the sensation as being quite comfortable.
Due to the repetitiveness of this instrument, the neurologic feedback of receptors is constant and ongoing throughout the treatment, allowing for an effective result of pain relief and healing.
An important feature of ArthroStim is its ability for pressure adjustment. Your physiotherapist will be able to manage the amount of force that the thrusts provide, based on the nature of your condition and the amount of pressure that is needed. This allows ArthroStim to effectively treat a wide range of different conditions.
Is ArthroStim right for me?
There are many patients that can benefit from ArthroStim treatments, based on the diverse, gentle, and universal nature of the instrument. Some of the patients that commonly find success with ArthroStim treatments include:
- Patients who are nervous or unwilling to undergo manual chiropractic treatments.
- People who find discomfort or uneasiness with being “cracked.”
- Patients suffering from acute pain.
- Patients with lower pain tolerances.
- Infants and young patients.
- Elderly patients.
If you fall into any of these categories, or if you simply think you could be a strong candidate for ArthroStim treatments and you’d like to learn more, contact our Vancouver chiropractic office today to schedule a consultation.
How do I get started?
It is important to note that ArthroStim treatments may be done on their own, or in tandem with other treatment methods. When you arrive for your initial appointment, your chiropractor will conduct a comprehensive exam to determine what the best course of treatment will be for your needs.
If your chiropractor decides ArthroStim would be an effective treatment for you, he or she will walk you through exactly how many treatments will be needed, and at what level of pressure that will be applied. Additional treatment methods may also be added into your personal treatment plan as your chiropractor deems fit.
