Chiropractic and Technology

By Dr. Michael Weir

If 40 years ago I had told you that one day you would be able to go to the dentist and have no pain, you probably would have laughed at me. The thought of a doctor performing a surgery by watching a TV and moving computerized arms was unheard of not all that long ago. But, here we are 2010, and all these things are here! The same is true for how technology has influenced the field of chiropractic today.

There is now technology that allows chiropractors to treat the human body while the patient is seated in an upright position, and without and twisting or cracking. The Proadjuster is the technology used by a select number of chiropractors in the profession today that allows them to treat musculoskeletal pain by use of computers and sensors, instead of by hand. This technology allows chiropractors to join many of the other health care fields in the 20th century.

Chiropractors have always diagnosed joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity which is one of the major causes of pain in the back and neck, as well as headaches, sciatica and even TMJ. The Proadjuster uses the advancement of the piezeoelectric sensor to achieve this same diagnosis, but with extreme precision and accuracy. This allows the doctor to find out specifically find out what is wrong with you and exactly how your treatment needs to be delivered.

After the doctor uses the Proadjuster to gather the information about what exactly is wrong with the spine it then sends that information through an advanced computer algorithm that figures out exactly how that specific are of the spine needs to be treated. The specificity of this process is unparalleled and allows its doctors to get wonderful results.

The Proadjuster delivers a precise treatment through an oscillating force with an uninterrupted motion that helps to correct your problem. Many of my patients tell me it is the most comfortable treatment that they have ever received. The future of technology is advancing at a breakneck speed and the Proadjuster is the technology that is keeping chiropractic advancing right along with technology.
