There are Advantages to Instrument Adjustments

Instrument adjusting is based on the same fundamentals as traditional manual chiropractic manipulations. After years of experiment, testing, and development the technique of using instruments for adjustment has a number of advantages in certain cases.

  • It employs tools that are specially designed to be calibrated to perform precise and targeted movements tailored to the specific needs of the patient.
  • The use of such precision and directed energy allows, in most cases, an equivalent amount of movement to occur while dramatically reducing the amount of force to the surrounding tissue in order to produce the desired movement.
  • Additionally, the use of such instruments provides a high level of control. The instrument can be calibrated to exert a precise amount of force and a specific direction of force, which allows the chiropractor to avoid undue stress on the very young, the very old, or the very damaged.
  • For patients suffering from arthritis or osteoporosis, for instance, there is less worry that the amount of force will be uncomfortable for the patient and reduces the possibility that further damage could occur.
  • The instrument is able to activate or unlock specific muscular groups depending on what is required within the particular patient's chronic posture and strength ratios
  • Finally, the speed with which the force is applied is much faster than that of hand manipulation and, therefore, bypasses the natural inclination of the patient to resist. There are also indications that this speed can trigger neuromuscular responses that make the treatments even more successful.
  • Dr. Hargreaves is especially sensitive to the plight of the patient in need of help who requires treatment with kid gloves due to the stress, swollen, bruised, broken, and damaged nature of their body or limbs. Some bodies simply cannot "take" the traditional chiropractic manipulations which, even though effective, may have shortcomings or be detrimental for some patients.
  • The patient is treated in a comfortable way without the need to turn or hyperextend parts of the body, head or neck. Thus this greatly reduces any issues associated with osteoporosis, vertebral artery conditions or other concerns that more aggressive techniques might not address.
  • Not only do some people dislike the "crunching" sound associated with moving the bones of the body, but also at times, the body positioning and body movement required to perform the adjustment may be painful and therefore counterproductive to the desired goals of pain relief and restoration of health. At such times, a very careful and controlled amount of motion is crucial, and for this reason, a different method of manipulation using instrumentation has been developed.
