Impulse Adjusting Technique Training

The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is a patented and FDA registered device created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints and muscles of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Instrument is controlled by microcomputer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force. The delivered thrust is faster that the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment and is specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for the patient.
