Neuromechanical Innovations makes the Impulse instrument which is a handheld mechanical adjusting instrument used by Dr. Katherine for full spine vertebral spinal adjustments.  She also uses the instrument for soft tissue adjustments and extremity adjustments to free up nerve entrapment and to release spastic muscles and breakdown adhesions,  The IQ Impulse instrument is the premier state of art instrument that adjusts in response to measured feedback coming back from the segments giving a measured impulse adjustment. The adjustment is fast and accurate.  It repeats the adjustment until the restriction and resistance are eliminated. 

The instrument eliminates the need to place the patient in awkward rotated positions associated with chiropractic adjustments performed over the last several generations.  "Very few professionals continue to use the tools that were used 100 years ago," says Dr. Katherine Crafton.  "Life is always about the constant quest for the right tool."  It is not the instrument that makes the adjustment; the physician makes the adjustment; the physician measures whether it is an improvement upon the manual application, previous instruments, and if they cannot find even a better tool, then they step out there and create the tools that perform the necessary task to the standards they set for themselves.   By definition, chiropractic is an art and a science. The chiropractic adjustment is best performed with specificity, accuracy, and speed.  It is as much a vibration with a measured vector requiring hands on knowledge of functional anatomy; it does not necessarily require the actual force to be performed by the hand (chiro). 


Dr. Katherine continuously palpitates the body performring necessary adjustments.  The Primary subluxation is considered the Upper Cervical complex at the base of the occiput where the head connects with the body, cervical spine.  This first vertebra is an atypical ring like connection with only small specially designed facet joints for very refined motion and quick reactive response.   It is not an area requiring the adjustment force used by a majority of chiropractors.  It requires accuracy and speed.   This can only be adjusted with Upper Cervical techniques and with the most accuracy using the Atlas Orthogonal table mounted instrument using a wave force with no motion into the tissue.  It, however, is not often seen and used because of its cost and the required amount of time to acquire certification and efficacy of use.


All other adjustments to improve upon nerve transmission are performed by the Impulse instrument either supine, prone, and seated with each patient who is found by palpitation, tenderness, and measured radiographic analysis to test positive for correction.  These adjustments are tested for response and improvement.  The Impulse instrument has its roots in the handheld Activator instrument which is taught in all colleges.  The protocols for Activator are used with the Impulse instrument, along with evolving techniques shared among physicians in quarterly seminars held around the country where Neuromechanical trains and retrains chiropractors across the country.

Many professionals use tools, but it is clear to everyone that its the use of the tool, not the tool itself.   It is the skill and intention of the physician that makes for improvement.  The tool allows for precision and accurate control over forces.  There is no better assurance of safety than with the use of an instrument and greater control over all variables.

Dr. Stephen Colucca, the inventor of this particular instrument, presents the attached videos showing the instrument.  He has his own practice and sees patients regularly.
