What is a Spine-Align chiropractic adjustment?

Spine-Align was introduced in 1996 and currently used by over 7000 doctors worldwide. Spine-Align is a breakthrough technology that has revolutionized chiropractic care. The computerized device provides analysis, treatment, and real-time feedback.

How does Spine-Align work?

The Spine-Align instrument can detect abnormal motion in your spine and assess whether that joint is too rigid or too fluid.  In other words, it’s assessing which joints are “stuck” and need to be adjusted.  Within the Spine-Align instrument, there is a piezoelectric sensor which registers information faster than your body is able to react, before your muscles even have a chance to react.  This means a precise and accurate reading of each joint’s movement is recorded for us to see in real-time (without any tissue/muscle involvement).

What to expect?

After going through and extensive history and examination, a more specific scan is performed with the spine-align.   The evaluation of your spine is then recorded by sophisticated computerized analysis to pinpoint the problem areas. Once these areas of rigidity or fluidity are identified, the treatment can then begin. By applying the Spine-Align’s impulses or percussions to the affected areas, you will receive gentle, effective treatment to that specific area, thereby reducing the subluxation/misalignment.  This will relieve pressure on the nerve that is causing interferences to the rest of your body, not to mention your pain!  Once the vertebral joints are adjusted, the chiropractor will take another reading of your spinal motion with the spine-Align and compare the pre and post results.  That is pretty amazing technology!

How can anything this painless be doing anything to my spine?
The Spine Align utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion to increases mobility of the effected spinal segments. In other words, the Spine Align is “unsticking” the joint. Have you ever seen a woodpecker tapping on a tree? These woodpeckers will drum into the toughest trees out there, i’t s unbelievable how something so small can make its way through something so thick and hard.   The Spine-Align is similar, however has a much softer surface tip.  The percussion/oscillation of the instrument is so extremely fast which is how it produces motion within our joints in a comfortable manner.
