The ProAdjuster-A Breakthrough in Healing

Imagine forty years ago, if we told you that dentistry would be painless, that brain surgery for tumors could be done with a laser, and that fetuses could be operated on within the uterus. By the same token, would you believe us if we told you that Chiropractic treatments and reorientation of the nervous system could be done comfortably, while you were sitting in an upright position without any turning or sudden movements? Advances in computers and engineering technologies have been able to uniquely blend with Chiropractic in order to both analyze and treat the human body in such a way that was never before realized.
The ProAdjuster combines tradition with technology by analyzing and treating your nervous system, just as a manual adjustment by your chiropractor would. A light force is introduced into the vertebra to check motion, it is reflected back to the piezoelectric sensor, which measures the reflective force, sending it to the computer for interpretation, all before the muscle can respond in its normal way. The ProAdjuster utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling motion in the abnormal areas. In other words, the ProAdjuster is "unsticking" the joint.
To better understand, let's examine the idea of palpation. When a Chiropractor palpates your spine, they are checking for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion effecting the nerve function is called a subluxation, which in turn, affects the brain and all the nerves. In a similar fashion to palpation, the ProAdjuster can determine whether the vertebra's motion is too rigid or too fluid. However, instead of utilizing the doctor's judgment as to what areas are too fluid or too rigid, the ProAdjuster measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, the ProAdjuster can isolate a problem area faster and more accurately than manual procedures. This new technology can be used to treat many ailments such as helping to relieve allergies, sinuses, and arthritis as well as hundreds of other ailments. This is the same technology and same type of instrument that NASA engineers have used in the space program.
The ProAdjuster is a new and revolutionary tool in chiropractic, and we at Chiropractic Lifestyle Clinic are proud to be one of the first practices in Maryland to posses such an innovative tool.
