In many ways, chiropractic medicine remains true to its roots. Spinal manipulation is still more associated with high-touch than with high-tech. However, chiropractors have always embraced new technologies — from drop tables to infrared light — when a clear patient benefit was evident. These days, a host of new technologies are bringing still more innovation to chiropractic care and chiropractic equipment for sale in the Midwest.

How New Technology is Impacting Chiropractic Products
Technology is finding its way into every phase of chiropractic care. How we diagnose and treat chiropractic issues, and even how we manage pain, are evolving by leaps and bounds. While there is still, and will likely always be, a place for traditional methods and tools of the trade, today’s chiropractor has more tools at her disposal than ever before.
Advances in Chiropractic Diagnostic Equipment
Chiropractic diagnostics once relied exclusively on chiropractic X-ray equipment to diagnose a patient’s problems and chart a plan of treatment. However, new advances in digital imaging for chiropractic, including infrared thermal imaging, are allowing new visibility into patients’ neuromuscular systems, allowing a higher degree of precision without gamma rays.
Advances in Chiropractic Treatment Equipment
Chiropractic adjustment tables have evolved, with some now finding use alongside traction treatment tables for chiropractic or even roller massage tables. However, newer equipment like the PulStar uses precise impulses — adjusted in part by patients’ biofeedback — to advance treatment further still.
Advances in Chiropractic Pain Management Equipment
Pain and loss of motion are among the most common complaints that bring patients to their chiropractors. Restoring function and alleviating suffering is important; just as important, for practitioners and patients alike, is finding chemical-free treatment modalities. While TENS units, infrared light, and laser treatments are already revolutionizing treatment, we’re also noticing the emergence of so-called K-Laser therapy, which combines light on the visible and infrared spectrums. Besides being an effective treatment to alleviate back and neck pain, it’s also shown to be effective in other complaints like carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger points, and plantar fasciitis.
