PulStar Treatment

The use of secondary adjustments may be necessary for the full restoration of your health and your spine. Dr. Nygaard uses the PulStar Instrument to evaluate and correct the spine without any twisting, cracking or popping. To fully understand why the spine can misalign, it is important to understand an important function of the brain. Balance and alignment of the spine is controlled by the brain. Signals from the brain control the muscles of the spine and core that keep the spine stable. If you have imbalanced signals from the brain, you will lose stability in your spine, and the joints of the spine can begin to move poorly and misalign. Correcting the atlas misalignment through Atlas Orthogonal care is an important first step toward spinal restoration, but further adjusting may be necessary.

Spinal Misalignment


If the spine has been injured or the nerve signals between the brain and the spine have been compromised and left long enough, the spine can break down. Often this will result in misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine or fixation of the joints. These spinal misalignments can cause musculoskeletal or joint problems including:


  • Headaches
  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Neck Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Arm/leg pain
  • Restricted motion
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Disc problems
  • Muscle spasms

PulStar Treatment

The PulStar instrument is a computerized handheld device used for analyzing and adjusting a patient’s spinal fixations and misalignments. As the doctor guides the tool gently down the spine, it evaluates areas of the spine that are not moving correctly. This system provides a computerized visual report of the current status of spinal joints and their motion.

After the evaluation is complete, the doctor uses the Pulsar instrument to deliver precise and gentle computer controlled impulses to the areas in need of correction. As adjustments are being delivered, the PulStar instrument and the doctor are analyzing the changes to ensure maximum benefit was delivered.

It is through this gentle and scientific approach that patients experience consistent and powerful change in their condition and their health.
