How does a non-force adjustment work? It doesnít seem like itís enough to put my bones back into place.
Bones donít stay out of place unless muscles are maintaining the incorrect position, or there is physical damage to the surrounding structures. The muscles are controlled by nervous system conditions. By causing the nervous system to update its effect on the muscles with gently directed stimuli, the resulting improved tone of the muscles can bring the bones into better alignment. This may be done with a conventional manual chiropractic adjustment. However, the particular rhythm of the Arthrostim tapping is very well received by the body and has a good effect on the nervous system when vectored according to indicators. Likewise, any stimulus (such as manual manipulation of a muscle trigger point, or an acupuncture point) has the potential to shift neural patterns toward more appropriate balance, as long as it doesnít cause protective tension, holding or rejection.
