How does the ProAdjuster work?
To better understand, let's examine the idea of palpation (feeling with your hands). When a Chiropractor feels 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 feeling by hand, the ProAdjuster 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 ProAdjuster measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, the ProAdjuster can isolate a problem area faster and more accurately than manual procedures.
If you have ever "flinched" at something, you know exactly what is meant by this. The piezoelectric sensor in the ProAdjuster instrument responds and registers information faster than your body's ability to react. Therefore, a precise and accurate picture of the extent of rigidity or fluidity of each vertebra is reflected.
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. Isn't that incredible? This is the same technology and same type of instrument that NASA engineers have used in the space program in order to evaluate the integrity of the ceramic cooling tiles on the outside of the space shuttle. The aviation industry, as well as civil engineers have used this technology in order to test metal fatigue in aircraft and bridge spans.
Chiropractors are now able to use this highly sophisticated technology applied to the human body in order to determine proper function. We can have the same level of care given to our bodies as multi-million dollar spacecraft. The Pro-Adjuster instrument is on the cutting-edge of where science and healing come together.
