The Sigma Instrument accesses the spine for rigidity, fixation and range of motion.
The Sigma Instrument uses a piezoelectric sensor in the instrument which responds and registers information faster than your body's ability to react. Therefore, a precise and accurate picture of the extent or rigidity or fluidity of each vertebra is reflected.
A light force is introduced into the vertebra to check motion, it is reflected back to thew piezoelectric sensor, which measures the reflective force, sending it to the computer for interpretation, all before the muscle can respond in its normal way. Isn't that incredible? This is the same technology and same type of instrument that NASA engineers have used in the space program in order to evaluate the integrity of the ceramic cooling tiles on the outside of the space shuttle. The aviation industry, as well as civil engineers has used this technology in order to test metal fatigue in aircraft and bridge spans.
Chiropractors are now able to use this highly sophisticated technology applied to the human body in order to determine proper function. We can have the same level of care given to our bodies as a multi-million dollar spacecraft.
The Sigma Instrument utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling motion in the abnormal areas. In other words, the Sigma Instrument is "unsticking" the joint. Have you ever seen a woodpecker tapping in an oscillating fashion on a tree? It is hard to believe, but you can watch them bore right through the hardest wood! The Sigma Instrument taps in much the same way but uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body and do not create damage.
