“No Fear” Gentle Chiropractic Adjustments
The Sigma Instrument virtually puts all the fears of manual treatment to rest. If you are afraid of the typical “crack” or “pop” sound associated with a well-performed chiropractic adjustment, the SIGMA instrument is for you. The SIGMA Instrument utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or eliminating the fixations. It uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body to exert a tapping force that “unsticks” the joint.
WHAT is the Pro-Adjuster/SIGMA Instrument?
The SIGMA Instrument (aka; Pro-Adjuster, Ultralign) is a computer-based chiropractic adjusting instrument that gently percusses the tissue area being tested, giving the practitioner vital information about the motion dynamics and the resonant frequency of the spinal joint or surrounding soft tissue. The SIGMA Instrument measures the stiffness of the tissue or joint by applying a light mechanical force in the form of a percussion wave and oscillating frequency, a signal is then reflected back to the instrument, which then measures the spine and tissue response, sending it to the computer for interpretation, all before the muscle can respond. The process occurs so fast that it reduces the normal defense mechanism or guarding response caused by typical palpation.
Dr. La Casto has used this technology for 11 years. Medical Doctors, Orthopedic Surgeons, Pain Management Specialists and Neuro Surgeons are just some of the specialists that refer patients to our office for this type of treatment. This technique is so gentle and precise that we have been able to treat small children, the elderly and patients who have undergone spine surgeries.
