Are you suffering from pain but nervous about receiving manual chiropractic treatments? If so, ArthroStim® could greatly benefit you. The ArthroStim® instrument that your physiotherapist will use to provide pressure and gentle “thrusts” to the affected area. This helps to ease inflammation to the injured or damaged tissues, provide pain relief, and facilitate the healing process. ArthroStim® is a safe, effective, and non-invasive way to relieve pain naturally, without participating in manual treatments. To learn more about ArthroStim® and to see if you would be a strong candidate, don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at Caron Chiropractic in St. Paul today.
How does ArthroStim® Work?
With any chiropractic adjustment, specific movements and pressures are made to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. When this happens, neural receptors are stimulated, which help produce the nerve impulses that provide information to the brain regarding healing. ArthroStim® works the same way as any other manual chiropractic adjustment, but without the manual pressure. It delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second to the affected area of the body. These “thrusts” are rapid successive inputs; therefore, the pressure is only mildly felt by the patient. In fact, many patients report the sensation as being quite comfortable.
Features Of Using ArthroStim® For Adjustments
Due to the repetitiveness of this instrument, the neurologic feedback of receptors is constant and ongoing throughout the treatment, allowing for an effective result of pain relief and healing. An important feature of ArthroStim® is its ability for pressure adjustment. Your physiotherapist will be able to manage the amount of force that the thrusts provide, based on the nature of your condition and the amount of pressure that is needed. This allows ArthroStim® to effectively treat a wide range of different conditions.
Side Effects Of ArthroStim® Adjustments
With any pain relief treatment, there can be side effects. Although you’ll feel the pain relief benefits of ArthroStim® immediately, you’ll also probably find that your body is sore in the areas where the ArthroStim® was used, at least for the first day or two after your first adjustment. For many, this soreness simply feels like you’ve been using your muscles for an intensive workout, and they simply need rest to recuperate. The best way to deal with side effects of ArthroStim® adjustments is to give in to your body’s needs, rest, and allow your body to relax so that you can feel the benefits of your ArthroStim® treatment sooner rather than later.
