At Starkwood Chiropractic, our Portland chiropractors work diligently to stay on top of the latest trends and technology regarding the field of chiropractic medicine. We utilize a number of sophisticated and cutting edge tools that can be used to make our chiropractic adjustments more comfortable for our patients, while at the same time making them more effective. Our Portland, Oregon chiropractic clinic offers the best and most thorough chiropractic treatment in the city.
One tool that we frequently utilize here at Starkwood Chiropractic is the Arthrostim. The Arthrostim is an innovative adjustment instrument that is designed to make chiropractic adjustments gentle and painless for patients who are particularly sensitive to pain or patients who dislike the “popping” sound that is often associated with a spinal adjustment. With a traditional chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor will use his/her hands to direct quick, firm pressure into your spine to correct subluxations. For children, elderly patients, or patients with painful conditions, this kind of movement can be very painful or uncomfortable. That is where the Arthrostim comes into play. As an instinctual action, your muscles tend to tense up whenever a force is applied to them. This often forces the chiropractor to use even more force to counteract the tension. The Arthrostim uses super-fast “taps” to deliver force before your body can react and tense up. This enables the chiropractor to use much less force when applying pressure to your joints and muscles. The Arthrostim also improves accuracy and precision when a chiropractor is making an adjustment, and can be used when a patient is sitting or standing upright.
