ADJUSTING THE SPINE WITH THE IMPULSE IQ
Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.
Did you know there are over 30 different adjusting procedures in chiropractic? Not all chiropractors do the same adjustments in practice. All chiropractors are taught how to adjust the spine by hand in chiropractic college, however, some like Dr. Braswell, have studied many other different chiropractic techniques. After researching most of the techniques taught around the country, Dr. Braswell focused on the Activator Methods chiropractic technique. This technique allows him to analyze the spine to figure out exactly what is the cause of your problem.
Most patients do not like to get their necks and backs "popped" or "twisted" by the chiropractor. Dr. Braswell utilizes the latest technology in chiropractic, the Impulse IQ adjusting instrument. This hand held device has a small microprocessor inside which senses the movement of the vertebrae. Once maximum motion of the joint is "sensed" the machine will automatically stop thrusting. There is NO popping and twisting of the spine, only GENTLE thrusts by the Impulse IQ. There is no safer technique in chiropractic!! That is why Dr. Braswell is able to work with people of all ages, from infants to the elderly.
