The Role Of Advanced Technology In Chiropractic Diagnosis and Treatment

Chiropractic care has always been viewed as an alternative, all-natural, or holistic form of medicine used to improve your health.

However, that doesn't make it any less effective because it is still a highly effective form of spinal care that helps millions of Americans improve painful health conditions every year.

Chiropractic care is particularly useful for treating the neck pain and back pain, and can also treat headaches, sports injuries, and any other musculoskeletal injury.

Your chiropractor will diagnose and treat your symptoms, and perform chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulations to treat the injuries or disorders.

But, there's also 6 questions everyone should ask their chiropractor.

Because of chiropractic care being known as an alternative form of medicine, few people think of technology when they think of chiropractic care.

However, in addition to manual adjustments, these treatments can now be done using different types of tools and advanced technologies.

Over the past few years, there have been many changes and advancements in chiropractic technology.

In the article below, we will discuss several of those changes and how they're moving chiropractic care forward.

INSiGHT Scanning Technology helps make an accurate diagnosis

INSiGHT Scanning Technology

The chiropractic adjustment is what improves the condition of the patient, but the most important part of chiropractic care is to identify subluxations and to understand exactly what's going wrong.

If the chiropractor makes an incorrect diagnosis, the underlying problem could get worse instead of better.

Unfortunately, diagnosis takes a lot of time to perform correctly and has traditionally involved some guesswork.

With INSiGHT Scanning Technology, your chiropractor can scan your entire nervous system in just 8 minutes.

Once the scan is complete, your chiropractor will be able to see hidden patterns of stress and tension, internal changes, and will be able to establish a baseline understanding of your body.

Disc Decompression Machines

Disc decompression is one of the most important and innovative technologies being used today for chiropractic care.

With the help of spinal decompression therapy, your spinal cord can be stretched and relaxed.

This technology continues to progress year after year.

One of the most effect disc decompression machines is known as the ReHab Spinal System.

In this system, more modern and computerized technology is used to control the traction pull on the spine.

This will effectively help you to avoid any kind of muscle contraction responses.

This technology can be adjusted according to the needs of each patient.

The ProAdjuster

If you've visited a chiropractor recently, there's a good chance you've seen the ProAdjuster already.

This ProAdjuster is a sophisticated tool that leverages the same technology that NASA engineers use to evaluate the integrity of ceramic cooling tiles on the outside of the space shuttle.

From the outside, the technology seems pretty simple; it's just a small device attached to a computer with a chord.

But it can produce extraordinary results.

The ProAdjuster utilizes a precise oscillating force with continuous motion.

It can increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling motion in abnormal areas.


Laser Therapy

Laser Technology has also proven to be a highly beneficial advanced and innovative technology for chiropractic care.

Laser technology is very effective, and it allows you to heal faster as well.

It's a great procedure which is clinically proven to be safe, efficient, as well as painless.

Laser therapy works great for chronic pains, arthritis, and many injuries.

With the help of red and infrared light over the injuries to stimulate the cells, you can feel relief from your pain.

Laser therapy can repair tissues, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain.


Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy is another innovation that has advanced chiropractic care.

This technology is used to treat injuries like muscle sprains.

It uses a powerful shockwave that helps in intense treatments.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy has shown to be very effective and beneficial on the disrupt tissues such as the calcification of tendons and the like.


Insight Subluxation Station

The Insight Subluxation Station is an advanced technology that allows chiropractors to get a reliable representation of the present condition of their patients.

It measures the electrical flow of your nervous system and charts it using graphics that show the spine and specify precisely when chiropractors should adjust their patients.

This allows for increased accuracy in diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes.


Chiropractors can use technology to diagnose and treat symptoms

Technology Will Make Chiropractic Care Safer And More Reliable

As you can see, chiropractic care is an advanced form of medicine, even though it's known for its all-natural qualities.

When people claim that chiropractic care is all-natural, they mean that nothing foreign is put into your body for your treatment.

It doesn't mean that it isn't advanced, or that it doesn't use technology.

Chiropractic care began as a highly effective practice to treat the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and as new technologies advance and emerge, it will only get better.
