IMPULSE ADJUSTING – no twisting, no cracking
Chiropractic Instrument Adjusting is an innovative chiropractic technique that incorporates the use of a hand-held Impulse Adjusting Instrument to apply the treatment. Using this instrument allows the doctor to specifically target problem areas of the spine and extremity joints with a controlled force. The technique is used to help patients suffering from a variety of conditions including low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, and whiplash injuries.
The Impulse device utilizes high-speed chiropractic adjustments to gently and effectively target joints and muscles that are not moving properly, in an effort to correct the underlying cause of the patient’s pain while improving mobility, relaxing tight muscles, and reducing pain. Impulse delivered treatments are faster than the body’s natural tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment, adding to the comfort of the treatment and the patient’s satisfaction. This technique is great for all patients – including geriatrics and children- suffering from a variety of conditions including low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, and whiplash injuries.
The inventors of this technique are major researchers for the chiropractic profession and developed this instrument based on what research was showing them. Dr. Justin personally uses it because it has been determined that the Impulse instrument delivers 25% more motion into the joints, which is what all chiropractic techniques aim for, and because speed is of utmost importance, it is also twice as fast as the previous mentioned technique and 100x faster than the traditional by hands adjustment. Impulse delivered treatments are faster than the body’s natural tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment, adding to the comfort of the treatment and the patient’s satisfaction.
Dr. Trosclair joins an elite group of doctors to become certified in the Instrument Adjusting technique and is the only doctor in St. Martin Parish with this level of certification. He is 1 of only 3 certified in the state of Louisiana.
Activator Methods Technique
Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force technique that uses a hand held instrument to realign the patient’s spine and extremities and restore proper nerve function. The patient does not hear any “cracking or popping”. The Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) has evolved from 40 years of clinical study and uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations to find joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities and restore it to health.
Use of the Activator Adjusting Instrument gives consistent low-force, chiropractic adjustments. It is a very safe and highly effective procedure for all types and ages of patients, and is one of the most researched techniques in Chiropractic.
