Arthrostim - Portland Chiropractic Clinic

Arthrostim is a special adjusting instrument that is designed to make spinal adjustments quicker, easier and more effective. The Arthrostim device is very useful for patients that are especially sensitive to pain, and makes the chiropractor’s job easier as well. It is perfect for use on young and elderly patients, patients suffering from acute pain, people who dislike the popping and cracking sounds associated with spinal adjustments, and patients who are suffering from arthritis. Arthrostim can also improve a chiropractor’s precision and accuracy when making adjustments, so it is very useful for performing adjustments on the extremities. During a standard chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor uses quick hand thrusts to manipulate your joints. These adjustments can be painful for some patients. The Arthrostim device breaks down these single, powerful thrusts into a quick series of gentler thrusts. This allows for more adjustments to be performed in a specific area as it is much gentler on the body. Arthrostim can be used on patients while they are seated or standing, unlike other methods which require patients to lie face down.

Portland Chiropractors

Our chiropractic doctors are always thorough and gentle when they perform spinal adjustments. If you are especially sensitive to pain, we can use gentler methods such as Arthrostim that will deliver effective treatment without causing discomfort. We can help you recover from auto accident related injuries, work injuries or general back pain. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation at our Portland chiropractic clinic.
