Treatment

The ATM 2 (Active Therapeutic Movement) System

The Impulse iQ Adjusting Instrument

Dr. Harris's treatment plan often combines hands-on and instrument chiropractic adjustments, Myofascial Release (or deep tissue work), gentle stretches and active therapeutic movements on the ATM2 machine.

Dr. Bruce Harris's patients can benefit from a new technology called the ATM® (Active Therapeutic Movement) system. ATM-2® will help decrease your pain and increase your flexibility almost immediately.

What is the ATM 2 (Active Therapeutic Movement) System?

Dr. Bruce Harris's patients can benefit from a new technology called the ATM® (Active Therapeutic Movement) system.

The ATM-2 is an Active Rehabilitation Treatment that places the patient in a PAIN-FREE functional weight-bearing position. Special resistive exercises are then performed thereby resetting the central nervous system's control of the muscles and joints, allowing an immediate and significant reduction in pain and restoration of function.

What is The Impulse iQ Adjusting Instrument?

Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments.

Dr. Bruce Harris uses the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of his patients. This patented and registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.

The impulse adjustments are high-tech.  There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments, but rather very precise and targeted adjustments designed to specifically care for just the right areas.

Did you know that millions of nerves travel throughout the human frame to control the function and physiology of your body? Spinal joints that are out of alignment or not moving properly can affect your health by irritating delicate spinal nerves. When irritated, these nerves alert your brain that something is wrong. Symptoms, including pain, are usually the result. Nerve signals are also sent to your muscles to stabilize and protect the area. You may feel stiff, sore, and tired.

Dr. Bruce Harris will consult with you about your health and perform a complete examination to identify your problem areas. You'll be given a report of the doctor's findings and an opportunity to have all of your questions answered. Chiropractic adjusting with the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® aims to restore your body's balance and function to correct the underlying cause of your symptoms with treatments that are as painless as possible. Getting rid of your pain and getting you back to feeling yourself again is Dr. Harris's primary goal.

What does it feel like? 
Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® feel like 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. Of course, results vary from case to case and chronic conditions, inflammation or muscle spasms may delay these positive effects.
