ArthroStim is a chiropractic adjusting instrument that delivers a rapid series of recoiling thrusts to target tissues. This a low force adjustment that is comfortable and very effective. It can be used to adjust the spine where it actually affects the natural feedback cycle of the nervous system which helps the the nervous system reset or modify dysfunctional patterns. It is also very effective on the muscles used on trigger points for myofascial release. Dr. Wheeler often uses arthrostim on children and patients who are unable to receive a regular chiropractic adjustment such as in the case of severe osteoporosis. Children love being adjusted with the arthrostim instrument. Dr. Wheeler also uses this instrument in conjunction with regular adjustments on patients. They find it helps relax the muscles and reduce the spasm and inflammation in the soft tissues.
