Sigma Instruments

<span id="selection-marker-1" class="redactor-selection-marker"></span>The latest technology in the chiropractic profession for instrument adjusting. The Sigma Instruments making a difference in many lives today.

One of the tools that Dr. Frank C. Derratt, D.C. uses for subluxation correction is a chiropractic instrument from SIGMA instruments. This spinal treatment technology is used to gently adjust the bones in the spine and other joints in the body.

Benefits of Using the Sigma Instrument

Many people experience issues with subluxation, which occurs when one or more of your vertebrae shift out of their optimal position. This can limit your range of motion and cause pain. It can also put pressure on your spinal nerves, strain your muscles, and impact your overall health and wellness.

Chiropractors often use a manual adjustment to correct subluxations. This is when the doctor uses their sense of touch to detect misalignment and make adjustments. The Sigma Instrument allows Dr. Frank Derratt to make needed adjustments with an instrument that many patients report puts them at greater ease.

Here are just some of the many benefits of the Sigma Instrument:

  • The adjustment is gentle. Many patients prefer the use of technology to a manual adjustment. Those who avoid visiting the chiropractor for traditional adjustments may do so because they do not know what to expect. With the Sigma Instrument, there are no sudden movements. Many patients find this a more comfortable way to eliminate subluxations.
  • The instrument can be used on patients of all ages. Since the instrument offers a very gentle adjustment, it can be used on patients of all backgrounds and ages from infants to older adults.
  • The Sigma Instrument uses cutting edge technology. One of the greatest benefits of this instrument is its accuracy. The Sigma Instrument uses advanced technology to locate and make adjustments to any misaligned vertebrae or joints.

Visiting Our Los Angeles Chiropractor for Adjustment

What does it feel like to experience a chiropractic treatment with the Sigma Instrument? While sitting in a chair, Dr. Derratt will move the small Sigma Instrument down your spine. As the u-shaped instrument gently touches each of the vertebrae, it is able to detect the areas that are misaligned.

After finding which of the vertebrae are misaligned, Dr. Derratt will hold the Sigma Instrument over the problem areas. The instrument then delivers a number of gentle taps which work to shift the vertebra back into position. After this, Dr. Derratt may use the instrument on other joints that are experiencing pain or issues with range of motion.
