How does the Sigma Instrument Method work?

Let’s study the idea of palpitation to gain an improved understanding.

When your Chiropractor palpates your spine, they are testing for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity.  Subluxation is improper motion affecting nerve function.

The Sigma Instrument Method, in a like manner to palpation, can establish whether the vertebra's motion is too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be too rigid (hypo-mobile).

The Sigma Instrument Method measures precise levels of motion, instead of relying in the doctor’s judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile. Consequently, the Sigma Instrument Method can isolate a problem area quicker and more precisely than manual procedures.

Combining Tradition with Technology

ProAdjuster - Avery ChiropracticHave you ever ‘flinched’ at something?  Then you will know precisely what this means.  The piezoelectric sensor in the Sigma Instrument Method instrument responds and records information quicker than your body's ability to react. As a result, a detailed and exact picture of the degree of rigidity or fluidity of each vertebra is revealed.

A light force is introduced into the vertebra to check motion; it is reflected back to the piezoelectric sensor, which measures the reflective force, sending it to the computer for interpretation… and all before the muscle can react in its usual way. 

How cool is that?  NASA engineers have used this identical technology and same kind of instrument in the space program in order to assess the integrity of the ceramic cooling tiles on the outside of the space shuttle. The aviation industry as well as civil engineers has used this technology to test metal fatigue in aircraft and bridge spans.

Though not rocket scientists... Chiropractors are now able to use this highly complex technology, applied to the human body, in order to ascertain proper function. Our bodies can now have the identical level of care, as multi- million dollar spacecraft.

Can something so mild and comfortable actually alter my spine?

The Sigma Instrument Method utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling motion in the abnormal areas. In other words, the Sigma Instrument Method is “unsticking” the joint.

Have you ever seen a woodpecker tapping in an oscillating manner on a tree?  It is difficult to believe, but they can bore right through the hardest wood!

The Sigma Instrument Method taps in much the same way but uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body and do not create damage.
