The Pettibon Tendon Ligament Muscle Stimulator (PTLMS™) was developed to enhance the chiropractic adjustment through pain control, enhanced metabolic function and regeneration of injured para-vertebral soft tissues.
Use of the PTLMS™ protocols aids in the elimination of pain and muscle spasms. With pain and spasms relieved, the patient will respond to care more rapidly as well as be capable of performing in office exercises prescribed by the doctor. Objective post examination and post x-ray findings validate the PTLMS™ protocols. Clinics involved in the studies reported a measurable division between those patients who received the PTLMS™ protocols and preparatory exercises before an adjustment to those who did not. The studies also affirmed enthusiastic and positive patient acceptance if properly educated prior to use.
