A small handheld tool called an Impulse Adjusting Instrument was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is a patented and FDA registered device, controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body. The tool delivers a consistent force with each adjustment, creating a gentle and effective treatment. An “Impulse” adjustment is safe and effective for osteoporotic patients, elderly patients, and patients who have a fear of manual adjustments. Impulse adjustments are high-tech. There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments , but rather very precise and targeted adjustments designed to specifically care for just the right areas.
