Chiropractic care has come a long way since its foundation. Not only has it gone through changes in the manner by which chiropractors perform chiropractic care, but various instruments have also been made to make chiropractic adjustments better, faster and more effective. One of these is the Pulstar adjusting, a new way to analyze and adjust the spine that you may have heard about from your local Lutz chiropractor.
All about Spinal Manipulation
Spinal manipulation has been used for centuries and is mainly used to release spinal subluxations, a condition involving the compression of the spinal nerves by the surrounding tissues in the spine. Compression of the nerves can lead to nerve irritation and various symptoms such as pain, reduced strength or weakness, loss of motion in extremities, numbness and tingling sensation as well as headaches. Moreover, spinal subluxations can also affect other organs basically due to the fact that the nerves are responsible for the functioning of specific organs in the body. Conventional manipulations involve the manual adjustment of the spine to release tension on the vertebral joint and relieve spinal subluxations.
The Pulstar adjusting is the newest technology in terms of chiropractic adjustments to relieve spinal subluxations. It involves both science and natural healing and utilizes the best approach to spinal adjustments.
What does Pulstar Adjusting Involve?
Pulstar adjusting utilizes a computerized analysis of the spine and delivers digitally controlled impulses during manipulation. This makes spinal adjustments more efficient because the chiropractor is able to see subluxations easier and faster and specifically detects the level of the spine that needs manipulation.
Detecting the Problem
Using the Pulstar instrument, the chiropractor touches each of the spine or vertebral joint from the neck to the sacrum. While the chiropractor is doing this, the sensors on the head of the instrument will send some electrical signals to the computer. These signals are interpreted by the system and detect the movement of each spine as compared with the others. After the last vertebra is touched, the computer will provide the general functioning of your spinal column. In doing this, the Pulstar detects the specific location of the problem guiding chiropractors to provide managements on the specific site.
After determining the location of spinal subluxations, the same instrument is used to provide kinetic impulses on the spine or vertebral joint. This step specifically corrects spinal subluxations by releasing tension on the nerves. Instead of getting your spine manually handled, the Pulstar instrument will help chiropractors adjust the spine using the handheld instrument.
Does Pulstar Adjusting Hurt?
The totality of the procedure from the diagnosis to the adjustment does not and should not produce pain. The procedure is generally gentle and you will only feel a light tap over your back. These light taps are equivalent to high amounts of energy that is effective enough to yield therapeutic effects on the spine.
For people who are skeptical about getting spinal manipulation due to the popping sound during chiropractic adjustments, Pulstar adjusting should be one of the options. If you need manipulation and would want a safe and gentle approach, talk to your chiropractor regarding Pulstar adjusting.
