Adjusting Instrument Research part 4: Multiple Thrusts, More Spinal Motion

Impulse brand adjusting instrument have found that multiple impulse thrusts create more intersegmental spinal motion. Increased multiaxial lumbar spinal motion responses during multiple-impulse mechanical force manually assisted spinal manipulation. [Tweet “multiple #thrusts by #impulse #adjusting #instruments create more #spinalMotion”] BACKGROUND: Spinal manipulation has been found to create demonstrable segmental and intersegmental spinal motion thought to …
