ArthoStim and KST
In this office we have taken special training in the use of the ArthroStim™, an instrument that gives our hand extended capability to target and control force more specifically to correct subluxations, distortions, interferences and/or stress.
These distortions in your body nervous system interfere with your flow of energy and internal communication and adversely affect body function. Koren Specific Technique (KST) quickly locates subluxations and releases them using the ArthroStim™, permitting your body/mind to function at a higher level of efficiency, harmony, communication and health.
The ArthroStim™ is an extension of our hands. Using it with KST permits us to accomplish better corrections or adjustments in a shorter time. In addition, corrections generally hold longer.
We use KST to locate and the ArthroStim™ to correct exactly where you have a subluxation. We specifically adjust those parts of your structural system that are subluxated. There is no pushing, pulling, bending, twisting or “cracking” with KST infants and children especially enjoy the gentle vibration of the instrument.
Specificity is so very important that it is part of the name of KST. But what exactly does it mean when we say that your care is specific? Why is it important? Specificity means that we analyze your body to find out precisely what is out of position (locked, distorted, unbalanced) that is interfering with your proper function. The interference is referred to as a subluxation. More than that, we need to know in which direction your subluxation is out of position. Is it off-center to the left? Right? Front? Back?
Superior? Inferior? Is it twisted? Is it off in a combination of directions? Is it only in need of correction when you are in a certain posture?
Knowing precisely in which direction your subluxation is out of position tells us where to introduce the tapping force needed to produce a correction (adjustment). The more specific the analysis, the less energy/force, needed for the correction. Because KST permits us to know, to a great degree of specificity, the precise; direction of your subluxation, the least amount of energy or force can be introduced for a correction. Clinical experience also tells us that the more specific the correction (adjustment), the longer it will hold or stay in place.
Because of KST’s high specificity, we set the ArthroStim™ to its lightest setting so the least amount of force is introduced. High specificity means there are no “cracking,” twisting or large scale movements of your body, Since we know exactly what needs correction and in which direction, we touch the ArthroStim™ to the specific area and a light force is all that is needed for a more complete correction.
Most importantly, with KST we can tell if correction or adjustment worked-that is, did the subluxation, distortion or imbalance get realigned and rebalanced.
