How do Sigma Instruments work?
To better understand, let’s examine the idea of palpation. When a Chiropractor palpates your spine, they are checking for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion effecting the nerve function is called a subluxation. In a similar fashion to palpation, Sigma Instruments can determine whether the vertebra’s motion is too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be too rigid (hypo-mobile). However, instead of utilizing the doctor’s judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile, the Sigma Instruments measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, Sigma Instruments can isolate a problem quickly and accurately.
If you have ever “flinched” at something, you know exactly what is meant by this. The piezoelectric sensor in the Sigma Instruments responds and registers information faster than your body’s ability to react. Therefore, a precise and accurate picture of the extent of rigidity or fluidity of each vertebra is reflected.
A light force is introduced into the vertebra to check motion, it is reflected back to the piezoelectric sensor, which measures the reflective force, sending it to the computer for interpretation, all before the muscle can respond in its normal way. Isn’t that incredible? This is the same technology and same type of instrument that NASA engineers have used in the space program in order to evaluate the integrity of the ceramic cooling tiles on the outside of the space shuttle. The aviation industry, as well as civil engineers have used this technology in order to test metal fatigue in aircraft and bridge spans.
Chiropractors are now able to use this highly sophisticated technology applied to the human body in order to determine proper function. We can have the same level of care given to our bodies as multi- million dollar spacecraft. Doesn’t that give you a sense of being special and give you a higher level of confidence?
How can anything so gentle and comfortable change my spine?
Sigma Instruments utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling motion in the abnormal areas. In other words, the Sigma Instruments is “unsticking” the joint. Have you ever seen a woodpecker tapping in an oscillating fashion on a tree? It is hard to believe, but you can watch them bore right through the hardest wood! Sigma Instruments taps in much the same way but uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body and do not create damage.
