How to keep things going when it’s your back that’s in pain

Helping others overcome the physical obstacles in their path is your passion and your creed as a doctor of chiropractic. You spend your working life facilitating healing and directly assisting patients to reach healthier, happier long-term outcomes. From injury recovery to chronic pain, the work you do changes lives.

In the midst of your pursuit of healing, it can often be you and your body that suffers. Manual chiropractic adjustment, while a proven method of correcting musculoskeletal imbalance and an integral technique in any chiropractic practice, puts tremendous stress on your body. Over time, that stress can accumulate and translate to physical wear and tear.

Whether this is your story or you tweaked your back on your latest skiing trip, keeping your practice firing on all cylinders when it’s you and your back in pain can be a significant challenge. How do you provide the level of care and service your patients deserve when you are physically struggling to maintain it?

With technique and technology innovations transforming the chiropractic world in profound ways, there are now opportunities to provide exceptional treatment without sacrificing your body. Among these revolutionary developments, chiropractic machines and adjusting instruments from PulStar stand out.

Based on results from a survey conducted by Chiropractic Economics, PulStar not only allows chiropractors to continue to help their patients when dealing with injuries themselves but also aids in preventing injuries in the first place. In an industry where approximately 45% of survey respondents share that they suffer from issues that could potentially limit their ability to manually adjust their patients, prevention is more important than ever.

How Chiropractic Instrument Adjusting Benefits Patients

If you are unfamiliar with instrument adjusting or not quite ready to make the leap from manual adjustment to a more hybrid approach, you’re not alone. Manual adjusting is the most common form of chiropractic treatment and the method most often learned. It has been a staple of chiropractic practices since its inception, and it’s here to stay.

Supplementing your manual adjustment with chiropractic instruments has numerous benefits. The instruments themselves grant you the capability to deliver precise impulses and levels of force with pinpoint accuracy—vital features designed to enhance the level of treatment you can provide to your patients. Combined with groundbreaking visualization technology, which gives you a visual of the areas you are adjusting and real-time feedback regarding the effectiveness of your treatment, chiropractic instruments are truly game-changers.

The improved level of treatment and gentleness with which it is delivered can work wonders for your practice by producing superior patient outcomes and attracting new clients. All of these benefits (and more) are clearly advantageous for you, your practice, and your patients, and they don’t stop there.

Instrument Adjusting and You – How Chiropractic Tools Preserve Your Body & Prevent Injury

With traditional manual chiropractic adjustment, your body is the tool. Over time, leveraging your body to manipulate your patients can lead to fatigue, aches and pains, and even injuries. Too many chiropractors have had their careers cut short by the wear and tear their bodies have accumulated over the years. Not only is this devastating to their livelihoods, but it also reduces the extent to which they can help people—the primary reason for becoming a doctor of chiropractic in the first place.

If you are concerned about pain as a chiropractor limiting your effectiveness or diminishing the longevity of your career, instrument adjusting can be a godsend. This is especially true in the case that you have already sustained an injury and would like to continue working as you recover. After all, the physical stress of manual adjustment is bound to prolong your pain, if not worsen it—you would tell your patients the same thing.

Because instrument adjusting allows you to deliver advanced levels of care without placing the same stress on your body, incorporating the technology into your chiropractic repertoire grants you the opportunity to continue helping your patients and care for your own body by preventing injury.

An especially effective strategy is using PulStar for routine and everyday adjustments, preserving your body for when manual adjustment is a necessity, and reducing the risk of everyday injury. There’s a saying that goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This applies directly to our industry in so many ways.

It is far easier and better to prevent a problem from happening than to cure it after it has happened. As a chiropractor, you’re putting your body at risk every day–it’s part of the job. With PulStar, you’re able to focus on that ounce of prevention, preserving your body and using it when it counts.

Preserving your health means you can help your patients heal more effectively. It’s a win-win for everyone involved. Consider the possibilities of an extended career, of getting more patients in your door, of preserving your body for longer–ultimately, this means a safe and successful career all because of that ounce of prevention.
