In the world of health care, new technologies are being introduced in every possible field of medicine. From introducing new technology into how specific procedures are performed to redefining ways to manage medical records, it seems as if there are endless opportunities to use technology to streamline and simplify practices. 

Over the years, the field of chiropractic care has generally been slower to advance when it comes to incorporating new technologies into daily practices. In fact, for many years (and even somewhat recently), the only technology that chiropractors routinely used was x-rays. 

Fortunately, chiropractic care today finds itself immersed in the world of technological advancements to better care for patients. Here are just a few of the many ways technology is improving in the world of chiropractors.

InSight Scanning

According to Referral MD, Insight Scanning uses neurological scanning to scan a person's entire nervous system in a few short minutes. This scanning process can look deeper into someone's spinal nerve connections and see how they impact the spine and different parts of the body, allowing a chiropractor to create a proper treatment plan for the diagnosed condition. 

The ProAdjuster

Smarter Ware
details how the ProAdjuster is a sophisticated tool that leverages the same technology that NASA engineers use to understand the mechanisms of ceramic cooling tiles placed outside of space shuttles. Sounds like reliable technology to us!

The ProAdjuster is a small device attached to a computer by a cord; it utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion, allowing for increased mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling movement in abnormal areas. 

K-Laser Therapy

K-Laser Therapy
is used in various medical fields, but in the world of chiropractic, these lasers use infrared and red light to repair damaged tissues. They also stimulate cells in the affected area and can be used in conjunction with regular chiropractic care. K-Laser therapy helps with sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, back and neck pain, and arthritis.

Disc Decompression Machines

According to the Arrowhead Clinic, disc decompression allows a person's spinal cord to be stretched and relaxed (along with the help of spinal decompression therapy). Because the traction pull on the spine is controlled, this helps a person avoid any muscle contraction responses.

Gone are the days when chiropractors simply relied on x-rays (a useful but sometimes inefficient procedure) to diagnose patients in desperate need of pain relief. Thanks to today's doctors' commitment to incorporate technology into daily practice, people will have a more timely and accurate medical diagnosis to improve their quality of life and drastically relieve significant back pain and discomfort.

The locally owned and operated chiropractic clinic offers both in-office treatments and at-home therapy regimens to help people recover and heal from auto injuries and other conditions.
