My name is Dr. Mark Pederson. I am a Chiropractor and Clinical Nutritionist. Following you will find information on our computerized chiropractic treatments utilizing the patented Pro-Adjuster System.
The ProAdjuster - A Breakthrough in Healing
Imagine thirty to forty years ago, if I told you that dentistry would be painless, that doctors would watch television to perform surgeries, that brain surgery for tumors could be done with a laser, that fetuses could be operated on within the uterus, that knife-less surgery could be performed- you would not have believed me. By the same token, would you believe me if I told you that Chiropractic treatments and reorientation of the nervous system could be done comfortably, while you were sitting in an upright position without any turning or sudden movements? Would you believe that newborns as well as the elderly with osteoporosis can be treated safely and gently?
Advances in computers and engineering technologies have been able to uniquely blend with Chiropractic in order to both analyze and treat the human body in such a way that was never before realized. The potential for the human being to end pain and to achieve their peak nervous system function has never been greater. Humans are consistently asking their bodies to perform at higher levels. Now we have the techniques and the technology to match the demand placed on the spine and the nervous system. We now have the capability to fine tune our own energy and enhance every aspect of our lives.
Complex Technology, Simple Solution. The ProAdjuster.
You can achieve maximum health for your body now and in the future beginning with a simple anatomical concept. The nervous system (the brain and all the nerves) controls every function of your body. If this network is interfered with, pain ensues, and the body malfunctions resulting in sickness and diminished overall health. The “something” you can do to improve performance and maximize health is to maximize the health of your nervous system. There are several ways to do this. The number one way is allowing a doctor of Chiropractic using the ProAdjuster equipment to analyze and treat your nervous system.
How does the ProAdjuster work?
Combine Tradition with Technology
To better understand, let's examine the idea of palpation. When a Chiropractor palpates your spine, they are checking for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion affecting the nerve function is called a subluxation. In a similar fashion to palpation, the ProAdjuster can determine whether the vertebra's motion is too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be too rigid (hypo-mobile). However, instead of utilizing the doctor's judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile, the ProAdjuster measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, the ProAdjuster can isolate a problem area faster and more accurately than manual procedures.
If you have ever “flinched” at something, you know exactly what is meant by this. The piezoelectric sensor in the ProAdjuster instrument responds and registers information faster than your body's ability to react. Therefore, a precise and accurate picture of the extent of rigidity or fluidity of each vertebra is reflected.
A light force is introduced into the vertebra to check motion. The amount of motion in the joint reflected back to the piezoelectric sensor. The sensor measures the reflective force sending it to the computer for interpretation and all this is done before your muscles can even respond to resist the movement! 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, have 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!
How can anything so gentle and comfortable change my spine?
The ProAdjuster utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or increasing motion in the abnormal areas. In other words, the ProAdjuster 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 ProAdjuster taps in much the same way but uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body and do not create damage.
With the ProAdjuster our adjustment and treatment procedures can be customized to fit each patient's needs.
We use the ProAdjuster's sophisticated computerized analysis to pinpoint the problem areas. The information is then charted graphically on a computer monitor showing both you and the doctor the problem areas on each and every visit.
Treatment of the spinal problem begins by applying the ProAdjuster's resonant force impulses precisely to the affected areas. You will feel gentle, effective impulses to the effected as the ProAdjuster increases proper motion to the spine, reduces nerve pressure and creates proper alignment to that area thereby reducing the subluxation. This will relieve the pressure on the nerve, allow the nerve to heal and restore the nerve's ability to transmit signals to and from the brain more freely. Most importantly, it will help relieve the pain!
If you are looking to enjoy more quality time with your family, have more energy and less fatigue, perform better at work and live life to the fullest with less limitations, then give Chiropractic and our ProAdjuster a try! You'll be very glad you did!

Over the past 14 years of treating patients I have utilized many, many different chiropractic techniques. We continue to use both traditional manual chiropractic adjusting techniques and the computerized ProAdjuster system in our office. However, I know there are many patients who feel better with chiropractic care but frankly do not like to be “twisted”, “turned”, “popped” or “cracked” as with traditional manual chiropractic adjustments. The ProAdjuster system is the PERFECT adjustment option for them! GENTLE and EFFECTIVE.
