The ArthroStim produces a rapid thrust and recoil to target tissues
that provide the relief and corrections doctors want. Using precision
stimulation, the Doctors at Greenapple Sports and Wellness are able to
pinpoint exact trouble spots with the right amount of energy.
Other notable benefits include a non-invasive instrument that provides quick and often dramatic results. The rapid motion supersaturates the target area with specific adjustive energy. Patients frequently notice a positive difference with the first treatment. Speed and vibration put the bone back in place with a low force capability. This therapy gives Greenapple Sports and Wellness the high tech approach that you need for a better and faster recovery.
What is the ArthroStim? Today's Doctor of Chiropractic needs maximum controlled joint displacement combined with patient comfort. This is where the ArthroStim reigns supreme. The result is better function and pain relief. The ArthroStim is unique in that it produces a rapid thrust and recoil rate of 12 thrusts / second. This frequency is often referred to as the "Low Beta Somato-Motor Rhythm" because of its profound effect on the nervous system. This is twice the speed of other mechanical thrust instruments. This rapidity stimulates specialized nerve pathways that send messages to the brain called proprioceptors and mechanoreceptors . The patient's pain sensing nerve pathways that carry pain messages to the brain are called nociceptors.
These nociceptors are not stimulated by the ArthroStim because of the thrust and recoil. This means that the adjustment can be delivered painlessly to patients of all ages. The ArthroStim delivers high velocity, short stroke thrusts which supersaturates the target area with the specific energy needed to correct the joint function. The high speed, shallow thrust allows for the accumulation of force that extends beyond the joints into the surrounding support tissues such as tendons and ligaments. This effect releases secondary trigger points and muscle spasm. Patients usually notice a positive difference with the first treatment.
