Dr. Douglas Krift has had over 120 hours of postgraduate training in low force chiropractic techniques that utilize instruments to mobilize the joints of the spine, as well as, the extremities.
Using instruments such as the Activator and Impulse iQ Dr. Krift can provide very comfortable and safe chiropractic care without the popping and cracking that is associated with manual types of chiropractic techniques. Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse iQ feel like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. Most of the time the treatment is painless and there is a feeling of pain relief and improved mobility. Results vary from patient to patient and more chronic conditions, inflammation or muscle spasms may delay the positive effects.
The reason instrument adjusting works so well is that the gentle thrust is faster that the body’s natural tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment. These adjustments are 100 times faster than a manual adjustment. These specific chiropractic adjustments are safe and effective for patients of all ages.
