The Specific Adjusting Machine

About The Specific Adjusting Machine

Overview: The Specific Adjusting Machine is the key element in a technique developed by Dr. Arden Zimmerman, D.C., to deliver an adjustment "specific" to an individual on the axis/atlas (upper neck) vertebrae. This is the area commonly affected by nerve pressure, which can in turn affect the entire nervous system.

The process involves taking x-rays, analyzing nerve pressure, and delivering a precise adjustment to the patient.

The result is a specific adjustment, which could not be administered by hand, reduced nerve pressure, and better overall health.

The writer submits that if Chiropractic is to survive, it must offer the sick a standardized service of proven value, at the lowest cost possible. This report is offered as evidence that there is no competition for a scientific chiropractic service which removes nerve pressure and stops there.
