Our Chiropractic Techniques For Bloomington Area

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Pro-Adjuster

Imagine thirty to forty years ago, if we told you that dentistry would be painless, that doctors would watch television to perform surgeries, that brain surgery for tumors could be done with a laser, that fetuses could be operated on within the uterus, that knife-less surgery could be performed- you would not have believed us. 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? Would you believe that newborns as well as the elderly with osteoporosis can be treated safely and gently?

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 potential for the human being to end pain and to achieve their peak nervous system function has never been greater. Humans are consistently asking their bodies to perform at higher levels. Now we have the techniques and the technology to match the demand placed on the spine and the nervous system. We now have the capability to fine tune our own energy and enhance every aspect of our lives.

How does the Pro-Adjuster Work?

Combining Tradition with Technology: 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 affecting the nerve function is called a subluxation. In a similar fashion to palpation, the Pro-Adjuster 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 Pro-Adjuster measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, the Pro-Adjuster can isolate a problem area faster and more accurately than manual procedures.

First 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 in evaluation and treatment is to utilize the Pro-Adjuster’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.

Your doctor will now begin treatment with the Pro-Adjuster. By applying the Pro-Adjuster’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 Pro-Adjuster to compare the results. Now that’s putting analysis on a whole new level!

How does the Pro-Adjuster’s Analysis work?

The instrument introduces a small mechanical force into the body and measures the response through a system of sensors and software. The waveform that is produced when this technology is employed is similar to a fingerprint of the material being tested.

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.
