Computer Assisted Adjustment - Sigma Instruments
The Sigma Instruments adjustment uses a computer to determine the best adjustment mode for your specific condition. Then, controlled percussive force is applied to the misalignment. The treatment is consistent, measurable and extremely gentle. There is no guesswork, and it is safe for individuals of all ages.
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. In a similar fashion to palpation, Sigma Instruments can determine whether the vertebra's motion is too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be too rigid (hypo-mobile). However, instead of utilizing the doctor's judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile, the Sigma Instruments measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, the Sigma Instruments can isolate a problem area faster and more accurately than manual procedures.
Our doctors will engage in a one-on-one conversation with you to determine your medical history, and the causes of your problem. The adjustment and treatment procedures are then customized to fit the patient’s needs.
The next step
Evaluation and treatment is to utilize the Sigma Instrument's sophisticated computer analysis to pinpoint the problem areas. The information is then charted graphically on a computer monitor, so your doctor can detect the problem areas on each and every visit.
By applying the Sigma Instruments’s Resonant Force Impulses precisely to the affected areas, you will receive gentle, effective treatment to that specific area, reducing the subluxation. This will relieve the pressure on the nerve, allow the nerve to heal, and restore the nerve’s ability to transmit signals to the brain more freely. Most importantly, it will help relieve the pain! In addition, your doctor may again take the readings after the adjustment with the Sigma Instruments to compare the results. Now that’s putting analysis on a whole new level!
