Our Chiropractors describe the Impulse Adjusting Instrument as a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases, the treatment is painless, and after the adjustment, many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Others report a sense of well-being or a soothing, calm feeling. This tool is a safe, effective way to be treated for all ages, from newborns to seniors.
