Imagine thirty or forty years ago, if I told you that dentistry would be painless, that doctors would watch television to perform surgeries, that brain surgery for tumors could be done with a laser, that fetuses could be operated on within the uterus, that knife-less surgery could be performed, you would not have believed me. By the same token, would you believe me if I told you that chiropractic adjustments could be done painlessly without any popping or cracking sounds, and no jerking or pulling of the body and neck? Would you believe that newborns as well as the elderly with osteoporosis could be treated effortlessly?
The facts are that all these high tech procedures were once just a dream in someone’s head and now are reality and commonplace. The future is now! Advances in computers and engineering technology have been able to uniquely blend chiropractic in order to both analyze and care for the human body in such a way that was never before realized. This advancement is a new technology called the Impulse iQ®. The Impulse iQ® is the most advanced computerized method of chiropractic care that exists in our profession today.
Chiropractors and their patients know that manual adjustments are safe and effective, regardless of what technique is used, as long as the doctor has the knowledge and skill to apply the method properly. However, sometimes people who have never experienced a chiropractic adjustment may be fearful because of something they have seen, read or been told about what they might see, feel, or experience with a chiropractic adjustment.
Occasionally people have a fear of the unfamiliar. With the use of the Impulse iQ® equipment and techniques, virtually all of these fears simply disappear. If you are looking for the perfect spinal adjustment—one that is precise, painless, and effective, without popping or cracking noises—then the Impulse iQ® is the ideal solution for you.
The amount of force (pressure) that the Impulse iQ® uses to make an adjustment of your spine is an amount equivalent to tapping your fingers on a table. Let’s test this out. Put your hand flat on a table or even your leg. Now tap your fingers as though you were listening to music that you really enjoyed. Now tap as hard as you can. That is about the amount of pressure you will feel with a Impulse iQ® adjustment. Do you think you can handle that? Of course you can. Even small children are adjusted with the Impulse iQ®. The amount of pressure can be completely controlled and adjusted for the patient’s comfort, safety and effectiveness.
How can anything so gentle with such little force involved move my vertebrae and change my spine? The Impulse iQ® utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal vertebrae by reducing or eliminating the fixations. In other words, the Impulse iQ® is “unsticking” the joint.
Have you ever seen a woodpecker tapping in an oscillating fashion on a tree? It is hard to believe, but you can watch them bore right through the hardest wood! The Impulse iQ® taps in much the same way but uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body and don’t create damage.
Not only is the Impulse iQ® great for the patient, it is great for the doctors as well. It is a valuable tool providing vital information about your spinal health, ultimately resulting in a higher level of care. What is it that every doctor wants for their patient and what every patient wants from their doctor? The answer is one word…RESULTS! The more the doctor knows about the patient, the better the result. The more a patient knows and understands about their condition, the better their results will be.
