Manual vs. Computerized Chiropractic: What’s the difference?
At Anderson Chiropractic, we offer two different styles of treatments: traditional adjustments, which are done by hand, and instrument adjustments, which are performed with the help of a computerized tool. Here’s a quick look at the differences between these two methods.
Traditional (manual) chiropractic
The term chiropractic includes the Greek root chiro—“hand”—because traditional spinal adjustments involve direct pressure from the chiropractor’s hands onto the affected areas. There are dozens of chiropractic techniques for performing this kind of chiropractic adjustment—too many for one chiropractor to learn and maintain proficiency in. For this reason a chiropractor will choose one to five techniques to help his or her patients.
Dr. Anderson maintains proficiency in manual techniques including Zone Technique, Diversified, Thompson, MC2, and Chrane Condyle Lift. While technologies are the wave of the future for chiropractic, we believe there will always be a place for traditional chiropractic in the care of patients.
Instrument (computerized) chiropractic
Within recent years, computerized instruments have provided a new method of spinal adjustment. The underlying theory is still the same—the application of pressure to the affected joint in order to restore mobility and correct subluxations. However, computerized instruments (including the Pul-Star, used here at Anderson Chiropractic) offer advanced evaluations of individual joints before and after each treatment. The adjusting tool can be much more precise in the amount of force it uses, adjusting to the stiffness of each individual vertebrae.
Many of our patients love the convenience and ease of the instrument technique. Unlike manual chiropractic, treatments can be performed with the patient sitting upright instead of laying down on a table, and many find the more precise adjustments to be gentler and more comfortable. See how it works below.
How It Works
The computer analyzes your spine and identifies tight areas that need treatment, then it helps the doctor apply precise pressure in precise areas.
The chiropractor uses the PulStar to direct a gentle impulse to the patient’s spine. It records the resistance given back to that force, then displays a graphic representation on the computer screen.
Red and yellow indicate problem areas.
Using impulse therapy, the doctor applies precise pressure in precise areas–no cracking and popping.
Patients often feel greatly reduced pain in three or four visits.
Which treatment style is right for me?
So which technique is right for you? This is a good question. There are particular benefits to each technique, and different patients have different preferences.
When recommending a course of care, your chiropractor will take into account your initial patient assessment (including your health history and examination). He’ll recommend the technique he believes will best suit your particular needs. Each time you visit, we’ll evaluate your progress. Throughout the course of your care, the doctor may change to a different technique or blend techniques to maximize your results.
