Dr. Jason Cozart of Pennsylvania Chiropractic was recently certified in Chiropractic Instrument Adjusting at the Neuromechanical System seminar held in Tyson's Corner in March of 2009. The seminar was co-sponsored by the Postgraduate Division of New York Chiropractic College.
Chiropractic Instrument Adjusting is a special chiropractic technique that incorporates the use of the hand-held Impulse Adjusting Instrument to apply the treatment. Using the Impulse instrument allows the doctor to specifically target problem areas of the spine and extremity joints with a controlled force. The technique is used to help patients suffering from a variety of conditions including low back pain, sciatica neck pain, headaches and whiplash injuries among others.
The Impulse device incorporates high-speed chiropractic adjustments to gently and effectively target joints and muscles that are not moving properly in an effort to correct the underlying cause of the patient's pain while improving mobility, relaxing tight muscles, and reducing pain. Impulse delivered treatments are faster than the body's natural tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment adding to the comfort to the treatment and patients satisfaction.
Dr. Cozart joins an elite group of doctors to become certified in the Instrument Adjusting technique. After receiving previous postgraduate training in the use of Instrument Adjusting, Dr. Cozart passed both written and practical examinations to become certified by Phoenix, Arizona based Neuromechanical Innovations (NMI), manufacturer of the patented and FDA registered device.
