Arthrostim and KST

Arthrostim and KST can make totally gentle adjustments to your bones, joints, muscles and nervous system without any forceful body twisting or cracking sounds. We love using the arthrostim instrument because it is so very gentle and specific. We mostly utilize it for adjusting the shoulders, arms, forearms, hands, fingers, legs, feet and toes. We also sometimes use it to adjust the jaw (TMJ) and the cranial bones.

Arthrostim is a totally gentle adjusting instrument and KST is one of the analysis methods we use to determine where and how to use the arthrostim instrument. The arthrostim consists of a small rubber tipped stylus that is placed on a bone or joint. The doctor presses a button on the hand held arthrostim and the stylus gently taps the bone or joint.

            The amazing health results achieved with the arthrostim are due to two things:

1. The arthostim taps with a soothing totally gentle frequency at 12 times per second. Because of this, the body does not go into any guarding or resistance. The frequency at which the arthrostim pulsates is healing and soothing to the body and the repeated quick gentle taps help the brain reset its commands to the nervous system. The repeated input helps produce an accumulative, healing, snowballing effect at neural receptors (both motor and sensory) without activating undesirable pain receptors.

2. KST and other techniques that we have learned help us decide exactly in which direction the bone should be directed to promote healing. The arthrostim instrument is an amazing totally gentle tool, but the KST and other analysis techniques are the key to the great results we get. We use a protocol of indicators that your body shows us to know that exact spot and direction to adjust with the arthrostim.

 A great thing about the KST system is the concept of adjusting people in different postures: standing, sitting, lying down/ and or in the position of injury or dysfunction. This is very important because sometimes a misalignment can only be observed when you are in a certain posture. For example: after a car accident, a patient has arm pain and remembers holding tightly on the steering wheel when the impact of the accident occurred. Arthrostim adjusting of the arm while reenacting holding the arms up as if tight on the steering wheel may be the key component to releasing the misalignment and pain in the arm joint.

While this is one of the wonderful tools we have in our health tool box with which to adjust you when this method best matches your health needs, we can instead use our totally gentle hands only adjusting methods to adjust you should you not want instrument adjusting. We have studied so many gentle adjusting techniques that we can modify our care to accommodate your preferences.
