What is Chiropractic Instrument Adjusting?
Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments.
Here at Jicha Chiropractic in Lima, we now use the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in our patient care. 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 microcomputer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.
Impulse adjusting is a new technique developed to provide controlled treatments to the specific areas you’re having trouble with.
At Jicha Chiropractic in Lima, we use the Impulse Adjusting Instrument to provide this treatment rather than the traditional manual methods.
Impulse adjustments are high-tech. There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments, but rather very precise and targeted adjustments designed to specifically care for just the right areas.
Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse Instruments to create gentle chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages.

Chiropractic Care Treats The Cause
Millions of Nerves travel throughout the human frame to control the function and physiology of your body. Spinal joints that are out of alignment or not moving properly can affect your health by irritating delicate spinal nerves. When irritated, these nerves alert your brain that something is wrong. Symptoms, including pain, are usually the result. Nerve signals are also sent to your muscles to stabilize and protect the area. You may feel stiff, sore, and tired. As opposed to taking pain-masking drugs, which can be dangerous to your health, Chiropractic care seeks to locate the source of your symptoms and address the underlying cause, so the problem doesn’t keep recurring.
