From that point, our doctors will utilize a variety of tools and begin your healing process.
Chiropractic is the science and art that allows the body to reach its health potential through manual or computerized adjustments; it's about real healing, not just the removal or masking of symptoms. Your spine and nervous system is like a system of highways and each car on the highway carries information to and from your brain. When an accident or something happens to jam that information highway (subluxation), everything stops and crawls along for miles, resulting in a lot of pain and annoyance. Chiropractors clear up the jam, letting your body's system heal and return to normal.
Technology has also embraced chiropractic. Computerized adjustments are a great alternative to traditional chiropractic adjustments. The Pro-Adjuster system uses precise, low-force high repetition impacts to gently adjust your spine.
Manual manipulation of the spine and other joints in the body have been around for a long time. In fact, Hippocrates, the famous Greek physician who lived from 460 to 357 B.C., published a text detailing the importance of manual manipulation. In one of his writings he declares, "Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases". Evidence of manual manipulation of the body has been found among the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Babylon, Syria, Japan, China, the Incas, Mayans and Native Americans.
Modern Day Chiropractic
Modern day chiropractic techniques have developed based on scientific research of the spine, muscular skeletal system, and nervous system. This foundation in research is coupled with natural healing philosophies to deliver targeted care that lets the body function properly. As chiropractic has progressed, so has the techniques available to doctors for treatment. From Gonstead, to Thompson, to Diversified techniques, our doctors use a range of tools to deliver the most effective pain relief and healing.
"Pro-Adjuster" Computerized Adjustment System
Twenty years ago, the first computerized adjustment systems were created. Because a small number of patients suffered from conditions where it was difficult or impossible to treat through manual manipulation, computerized adjustments have grown exponentially. Through the state-of-the-art Pro-Adjuster system, the chiropractors at 360 Health Care can safely treat patients with osteoporosis and other complicating conditions. The Pro-Adjustor works by using low force but high repetition, thus gently adjusting the vertebrae.
