SIGMA Instrument Methods™ makes use of an advanced technical instrument for both spinal analysis and spinal adjustment. The system is driven by a sophisticated software package, designed to help the practitioner in locating and treating spinal segmental dysfunction and/or fixations.
The key to the treatment is the precise, quantified, and reproducible low force, resonant percussive impulses that are delivered to the patient's affected area by the head of the instrument. The SIGMA Instrument can be used for both spinal adjustment and extremity treatment. SIGMA Instrument Methods™ can be easily integrated into a variety of chiropractic treatment approaches, allowing the doctor to incorporate the benefits of the SIGMA AdjustingSystem™ into a treatment solution for most patients.
The SIGMA AdjustingSystem™ isolates and identifies sections of your spine that lack the flexibility typically expected for similar sections of the spine in a similar patients. Each region of the spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral) is analyzed by the system and presented in graph form to the doctor. The doctor will review the results of the test and select which segment or segments of your spine require adjustment. The doctor will then use the SIGMA Adjusting System™ to apply low-force, resonance percussive impulses to the selected spinal segments. The patient's initial scan allows the software to calculate the correct adjustment frequency based on the expected norm for similar sections of the spine in a similar patient. The software automatically stops when the patient's tissue responds in accordance with the parameters the doctor has set. The doctor will then immediately rescan to determine the patient's response to the treatment. Depending on the results of the post-treatment scan, the doctor may choose to re-treated and re-scanned certain spinal sections as needed.
