Instrument Assisted Spinal Adjustments
An alternative and/or additional area of chiropractic used specifically to pinpoint musculoskeletal misalignments and improve range of motion issues are classified as instrumental assisted spinal adjustments. These treatments use advances in technology and mechanics as an aid or substitute for the manual spinal adjustments described in the previous section.
Additional benefits include:
The ability to use maximum, even force on smaller areas than a typical manual adjustment can accomplish.
The ability to mechanically adjust the force action to accommodate your needs and comfort.
A shortened overall treatment time due to more accurate and focused adjustments to the area in pain.
The rapid speed of this instrument is thought to aid relief and restoration because muscles are less likely to tense or “guard” when it is used, hence the efficacy of the treatment is less likely to be resisted.
Baywood Chiropractic believes that customized care plans are integral to effective and lasting pain relief and resolution. As such, Dr. David J. Lewis is fully trained and certified, so that when range of motion injuries, and acute musculoskeletal misalignments that are accompanied by spasms present themselves, he is able to prescribe and perform instrument assisted spinal adjustments that offer maximum, targeted relief and resolution. Whether choosing to utilize this tool as the primary source of spinal realignment or adding it as a complementary technique to manual spinal adjustments, you can rest assured that you will be given the most appropriate and accurate treatment plan for your individual chiropractic wants and needs.
