Impulse Adjustment

Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments.

 
At Carrier Chiropractic, just as with thousands of other doctors around the world, Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is used in the care of our patients. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.
 
Extreme Speed
 
Impulse® is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than manual chiropractic adjustments. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment.
 
Controlled Force
 
Impulse® has three different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages. The controlled low force thrust of Impulse® makes treatments comfortable.
 
Frequency Tuned Waveform
 
Impulse® is specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.
 
What does it feel like?
 
Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® feel like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Others report a sense of well-being or a soothing calm feeling. Of course, results vary from case to case and chronic conditions, inflammation or muscle spasms may delay these positive effects.
