About the Sigma Ultralign Adjustment
The Non-Manual Chiropractic Adjustment
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.
