An Arthrostim® adjustment involves the use of a special instrument that has an appearance similar to a drill, and is held in a similar manner.
How does it work?
It produces a speedy thrust and recoil motion, similar to the way Dr. Rump uses his hands to adjust the vertebrae in your back. The arthrostim utilizing high-speed, very specific area and radiates throughout the tissue that surrounds the point of contact.
Arthrostim® is a gentle, mechanical method of easing the joints back into alignment that is basically an extension of Dr. Rump’s hands and does not cause the cracking noises that often make people feel uneasy. He has been trained to exert just the right amount of pressure needed by adjusting the force of the thrust up or down from merely a few ounces all the way up to 40 pounds, and work on a wide range of body areas, not only on the spine.
The Arthrostim’s® movement stimulates the your special sensory nerve receptors, called proprioceptors, which are responsible for detecting the proper motion and alignment of the body’s muscles and joints, signaling that all is well. The use of instrument adjusting, such as with the Athrostim®, allows for fewer side-effects and less post-treatment muscle soreness, and can be beneficial to children and the elderly who may not respond to traditional chiropractic practices.
