About the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment

The Non-Manual Chiropractic Adjustment

About the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment
Published Tuesday, 18 June 2019

Many people avoid chiropractic treatment because they have anxieties or fears about the bending, the quick movements, and the cracking sounds that are traditionally associated with chiropractic. This is unfortunate. So many people that could benefit from chiropractic care opt out and either suffer reduced range of motion, pain or rely on painkillers to get by.

That’s where the Sigma Ultralign adjustment system comes in. This high-tech chiropractic care system has the potential to change many people’s perspective on what chiropractic is and what chiropractic can do. Read on as we discuss what the Sigma Ultralign adjustment system is and what it can do for you:

What is the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment?

The Sigma Ultralign is a computerized chiropractic adjustment system that uses specialized software and adjustment tools to gently and accurately reset skeletal joints and nerves. This takes sudden movements, fear, and potential physical strain out of the chiropractic adjustment process.

How Does the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment Work?

To start, the patient is seated in a specialized treatment chair. The chiropractor holds a handheld sensor instrument over the affected areas. This measures the joint and soft tissue stiffness, providing immediate feedback via the computer workstation. The instrument is then switched to a treatment mode, providing gentle force to adjust the area with precision.

What Sort of Measurements Can the Sigma Ultralign Do?

The Sigma Ultralign measures the mobility/stiffness of the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) as well as joints. The system also measures and displays the motion dynamics of the affected area – and it also shows the area before and after treatment.

With this information, the computerized system can pinpoint the adjustment needs and deliver accurate, gentle treatment to the area.

Does the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment Hurt?

No. The Sigma Ultralign Adjustment is designed to deliver a gentle, precision treatment, without pain. The amount of pressure administered is controlled digitally by the computer and is customized to your specific needs based on the analysis of your mobility/stiffness.

The doctor can, of course, make manual adjustments to the pressure and positioning of the instrument if they feel the need. All of this will be a gentle process, with you sitting in a special chair. No bed/laying flat required.

 

I Understand the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment is Performed in a Chair. Do I Have to Lay Down?

Nope! The Sigma Ultralign Adjustment treatment is delivered while you are seated in a specialized C-posture treatment chair that is expertly engineered for comfort and precision use of the instruments.

This style of treatment is especially great for those who have trouble laying down, getting up from laying down or moving around comfortably on a standard chiropractic adjustment table.

What Types of Conditions Can Be Treated With the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment?

The Sigma Ultralign Adjustment can treat the same conditions that are treated with standard, traditional chiropractic adjustments. For adults and children, this machine provides treatment of lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, and other shoulder mobility issues, knee and ankle pain, headaches, degenerating disks, and foot pain.

Is The Sigma Ultralign as Successful In Treating Pain as a Normal Chiropractic Adjustment?

Absolutely. Treatment with the Sigma Ultralign delivers fantastic results with a highly controlled, gentler adjustment than a traditional chiropractic adjustment, with immediate feedback given to both the doctor and patient via the computer, as once the adjustment has been done, the Ultralign retests the area treated to ensure the adjustment has been done effectively.

Have Lower Back Pain? The Relief May Be in Your Feet!

Have Lower Back Pain? The Relief May Be in Your Feet!

New Study Reports Major Lower Back Pain Relief with Orthotics plus Chiropractic Care

A study recently published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation has shown that patients with lower back pain lasting longer than three months experienced significant pain relief through the use of custom-made orthotics and various chiropractic therapies.

 

  • The study followed 225 adults who had lower back pain symptoms for three months or longer. Participants volunteered for the study and were randomly divided into three treatment groups.
  • The first treatment group was given custom-made shoe orthotics provided by Foot Levelers. The second group also received the shoe orthotics as well as various chiropractic therapies such as regular adjustments, hot and cold packs, and manual soft tissue massages. The third group received no treatment as a control group.
  • After six weeks, the first group reported 34.5% improvement in lower back pain and 18.9% improvement in function. The second group which had shoe orthotics as well as chiropractic care related 40.4% reduction in lower back pain and 32.3% improvement in function.
  • While all three groups reported reduced average back pain after six weeks, only the first two groups described improved function.
  • After six weeks, the control group was also given custom-made shoe orthotics. As a result, when participants in each group were evaluated again after twelve weeks, there was no major differences between their pain and function improvement reports.

A Painful Domino Effect

In an interview with Podiatry Today, New York podiatrist George Tratchenburg said that he “believes the majority of lower back pain not caused direct injury or congenital problems results from abnormal gait.” Abnormalities in gait and irregular shifts in body weight often create a domino effect, altering the body’s posture and gait, which can result in spine and pelvic misalignments. Shoe orthotics help realign how feet interact with the ground, evenly distributing body weight with each step and stabilizing the spine.

Orthotics at South Orange Chiropractic Center

However, it’s important to choose the right orthotic for your needs. At South Orange Chiropractic Center, our chiropractors recommend Foot Levelers, a specific brand of orthotics. They can provide relief for patients with lower back, hip, or knee pain. Dr. Steven Levine describes Foot Levelers as soft orthotics that have the correction built in, but are also able to move with the foot. “A lot of the old traditional orthotics are hard plastic and over stabilize the foot, and when the foot becomes over stabilized, it puts too much motion in the knee or the hip,” Dr. Levine says. “[Foot Levelers] almost feels like it’s part of the shoe as opposed to a separate insert, so the comfort level is high.”

During an appointment at South Orange Chiropractic Center, our chiropractors use a state-of-the-art foot scanner to take pictures of your feet and quickly diagnose whether or not you may need orthotics to supplement your regular chiropractic care. If there is a critical need for more cushioning or support, we can also take a mold of your feet, send it to Foot Levelers, and provide you with custom shoe orthotics. If you think you may need orthotics or would be interested in having your feet scanned, please call us today at (973) 761-0022 or schedule an appointment online! We’re here to help you get back to life as it should be.
