PulStar Technique

How It Works

The first step is to identify what’s going on beneath the surface, we take a reading starting near the top of the spine.

If the bars are yellow, there may be muscle tightness or stiffness in that area. If there are intersegmental red bars, that shows there is a dysfunction between two of the vertebra.

During the adjustment phase, the doctor directs multiple impulses at the areas he/she wants to treat to reduce restrictions in those areas and add more motion to the segment. We can see the updates in real-time!

The precise but gentle pressure applied by the PulStar aligns with established protocols and is recorded in the patient’s treatment record, greatly reducing any risk of malpractice. Often, patients will feel greatly reduced pain in three or four visits!

Symptoms Treated

Back Pain

According to the American Chiropractic Association, one-half of working Americans admit to back pain each year, and it’s the most common cause of missed work. While diseases can cause back pain, more often than not it is a result of musculoskeletal issues or misalignment. The PulStar system is designed specifically to treat musculoskeletal conditions and could be ideally suited to treating back pain.

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is the most common type of back pain, with over 31 million Americans experiencing this symptom at any given time. It is also the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease 2010. The PulStar’s multiple-impulse technology, paired with Essential Elements Cream massage to relax the muscles, can provide a clear treatment plan for lower back musculoskeletal misalignment, while also allowing for some relief between visits.

Muscle Spasm

Spasms of the skeletal muscles are the most common type of muscle spasm. Patients complaining of brief, painful spasms are often advised to gently stretch muscles, but chiropractic care applied to the area may help to reduce occurrences of muscle spasms. The musculoskeletal therapy of The PulStar device can be applied to the area to help enhance chiropractic treatment.

Neck Pain

Everyday life provides a plethora of opportunities to develop neck pain— sleeping, bad posture, improper stretching and even talking on the phone can lead to this symptom. Because neck pain can happen at any time, Essential Elements Cream massaged into the neck muscles can provide immediate relief by relaxing muscles while also being used as part of a treatment plan involving The PulStar device.

Shoulder Pain

Stress tension and musculoskeletal pain in the shoulders is a common symptom treated by chiropractors, but sometimes patients complain about pain coming back between visits. Essential Elements Cream can be used outside of the chiropractor’s office for tension relief, and when combined with The PulStar device, it can minimize tension symptoms overall.

Joint Pain

Treatment options for joint pain are varied and wide-ranging. Many patients are choosing to add chiropractic care to their joint pain regimen, and The PulStar doctors are able to offer an additional option that is scientific, gentle, and provides a different approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal joint pain.

Extremity Numbness or Pain

Musculoskeletal issues are sometimes at the root of pain or numbness in the arms, legs, hands or feet. Patients are often surprised to find out that chiropractic methods aren’t just used to treat back pain, and can be used on the extremities as well. Similarly, The PulStar device was designed to assist chiropractors beyond the treatment of back pain, and can provide relief to patients with pain or numbness in the extremities.

Plantar Fasciitis

Pain in the heel of the foot when standing or walking is often the result of plantar fasciitis, which is when the ligament supporting the arch of the foot is damaged. This musculoskeletal issue can be treated with an Essential Elements cream massage, which helps to relax the ligament connecting the heel to the toes. The effect of the cream can be enhanced with the use of The PulStar device, which helps to push the cream through the tough skin on the sole of the foot and into the affected muscle.
