There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Typically, chiropractors will focus on and utilize 8 to 10 different approaches in their practice. The common goal of most chiropractic techniques is to restore or to enhance joint function, with the general goals of resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain. Some approaches use some force (spinal manipulation), while others are more gentle (spinal mobilization).
Some doctors of chiropractic perform joint manipulation with their hands only, while others use various instruments. Additionally, some chiropractors treat using quick but firm manipulation, while others have a lighter touch. Some patients prefer the immediate feeling of relief offered by the "joint popping" type of spinal manipulation, while others cringe at the mere thought and prefer a low-force chiropractic technique. In short, chiropractic treatment is largely driven by the individual preferences of both the chiropractor and the patient.
In addition to conventional chiropractic adjustment techniques, Dr. Sellar is the only chiropractor in the Concord, NH area, and one of the few chiropractors in New Hampshire, to offer the Sigma Adjusting Instrument, a computer-aided approach to chiropractic adjustments.

About Impulse Adjusting
Impulse adjusting is a new technique developed to provide controlled treatments to the specific areas you’re having trouble with. There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments, but rather very precise and targeted adjustments designed to specifically care for just the right areas. impulse Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse Instruments to create gentle chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages.
Dr. Sellar and thousands of other doctors around the world now use the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of their patients. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.
Impulse® is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than manual chiropractic adjustments. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment.
Impulse® has three different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages. The controlled low force thrust of Impulse® makes treatments comfortable.
Frequency Tuned Waveform
Impulse® is specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.
