The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is a low force adjusting instrument that 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 spine and body.
It is a low force technique used especially for children or elderly patients as well as those patients who prefer a less physical adjustment without the traditional cavitation or "popping" sound usually associated with an adjustment.
Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse Adjusting Instrument feel like a light tapping sensation on the area being treated. In most cases the adjustment is painless and afterwards many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Of course, results vary from case to case and chronic conditions, inflammation or muscle spasms may delay positive results.
