Usage of the ArthroStim and Vibracussor during Chiropractic treatment in Plano is a cutting-edge therapy that alleviates neck, back, and extremity pain. Both of these machines are a non-invasive, drug-free pain management technique that is an alternative to some surgeries. In fact, most patients get relief using these machines following ineffective drugs, injections or physical therapy.
If you are new to this type of therapy, it is normal to inquire about this type of treatment and wonder whether it meshes well for your pain management needs. This information here is formatted to explain how therapy with these machines works, why it is effective, and address the most frequently asked questions.
The cause of neck and back pain vary from patient to patient, but it usually comes down to three different types of tissues, they are separated into bone, nerve, and muscles. The ArthroStim and Vibrocussor are unique instruments that delivers multiple, low amplitude thrusts with the ArthroStim producing 12-14 thrusts per second which matches the same frequency in the sensory motor cortex. Matching the same frequency causes inhibition of motor activity and muscle relaxation. This matching frequency causes decreased muscle spasms, facilitates healing, and bombards and confuses the central nervous system, thus reducing the overall pain level. The impulse on the bone increases the joints range of motion, breaks joint adhesions and reduces inflammation. The frequency of treatment also helps align the bony structures to increase optimal biomechanics.
Some patients prefer the use of these tools for their adjustment, because it is more gentle than the traditional Chiropractor manual adjustment. Some patients also do not like to be twisted or turned during normal adjusting protocols. The ArthroStim and Vibrocussor also work well for patients that are extremely acute and can barely move, such as post auto injury. This is a lower impact therapy that the patient can respond to better. These tools are also great and safe for child and seniors, as the lower force reduces the chance of post-adjustment soreness. Here at Twisted Spine and Joint Center, we witness the difference that this therapy makes for patients every day.
For some patients, this type therapy is a complement to chiropractic adjustments. For other patients, they will not need additional chiropractic care in order to experience relief. Every patient is different, which is why all of our treatment programs are completely customized to each patient's specific wellness needs. Our goal is to manage your pain and help your body heal as quickly and safely as possible. We recognize that different bodies respond better to some therapies than others. Overall, however, chiropractic is an incredibly successful and effective treatment.
