Our Chiropractic Techniques

Woman getting neck adjustmentChiropractic care at Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center can involve techniques both by hand and by using a gentle instrument to adjust you. Your care with us may also be complemented by the use of physiotherapy modalities, if that will assist your healing process. Some of the most common techniques and therapies we use are:

Diversified

Diversified technique is the most common manual adjusting technique we use. After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.

Impulse® Instrument Adjustment Tool

In addition to the customary manual and diversified adjusting techniques, Dr. Eastlund also offers the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of his patients. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment. The controlled low force thrust makes treatments comfortable. Specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.
