Pierce Results System
We employ the Pierce Results System as a method of assessing your spine, noticing how it moves through what should be normal ranges of motion. Spinal issues are revealed by having you turn and bend in certain ways. This thorough biomechanical assessment provides the basis for making a highly specific and effective adjustment using a handheld instrument.
The computerized instrument used as part of Pierce applies a series of “taps” on particular vertebrae. Using a high-tech “force transducer,” the computer evaluates how the vertebral segment is responding. Think of it as a small reflex hammer that’s often used during a medical physical. (You’ll hear the difference as each segment assumes a more competent position.) The computer helps us identify where to adjust and how your body is responding to your adjustment.
With this technique, we commonly use a specialized adjusting table that features cushions that “drop” away. This feature decreases the amount of energy required to make changes in your neck and pelvis. The other primary benefit of drop tables is they help make the adjustment for the patient more comfortable.
Subluxations produce an inflammatory response that can be measured by changes in temperature. We’ll monitor your progress and look for pattern changes along your spine by utilizing highly-sensitive temperature measuring equipment.
As improved spinal function returns and nerve interference is decreased, your body’s innate healing ability will be enhanced.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, because no twisting, cracking or popping of the spine is involved, it’s a comfortable method.
Much more than an adjusting method, Pierce is a highly intricate system for evaluating the spine, identifying vertebral subluxations, and correcting them, restoring proper function to the spine and nervous system.
