The Spine Align System
The Spine Align System is a sophisticated FDA approved mechanical percussive manipulation device, which has both an analytical and a therapeutic application. In other words, the instrument helps the doctor assess the spine as well treat the patient in a precise, effective and gentle manner.
From a therapeutic perspective, this technology is very comfortable, as it offers a less forceful treatment without application of manual rotation or thrusting forces to the joints, when compared with standard chiropractic manipulations.
With this technology, musculoskeletal conditions can be managed by increasing range of motion, eliminating fixations and improving functional capacity of patients through specific manipulative techniques assisted by the instrument in a precise and reproducible manner.
Neurologically, the Spine Align Instrument takes advantage of the interplay of the type 1, 2, and 3 mechanoreceptors with the type 4 nociceptors creating an inhibition of pain, increasing neuroactivity and restoring normal nervous system tone.
The Spine Align Instrument offers a particularly interesting alternative to standard chiropractic procedures to patients of all ages, who might either be apprehensive of manipulations, those presenting acute injuries or suffering from conditions with contra-indications to spinal manipulations.
