You’ve probably heard of the chiropractic “crack.” For many patients this is the sound of anticipated relief, but this process may seem scary for others.
Our advanced Sigma Adjuster resets joints/nerves with absolute precision—and no “crack.” The treatment is painless, and the relief is often immediate.
Though the hand-held Sigma Adjuster is small and lightweight, the device provides a huge advancement in chiropractic treatment. Sigma allows your provider to quickly and accurately find which bones/joints are not moving correctly or misaligned so that only necessary adjustment is done.
Sigma adjustments in Minneapolis are FDA-cleared. The system requires minimal external manipulation of the targeted bones/joints and it is non-invasive and non-surgical. It’s a great solution for older patients, patients with any kind of bone issue/disease (such as osteoporosis), and anybody who simply does not want to hear cracking in their spine or feels a manual adjustment is not safe.
Treatment only takes about 10 minutes for both analysis and spinal adjustment. The instrument is efficient and extremely comfortable in breaking up adhesions and spinal fixations, which reduce function and cause pain. The adjustment also helps your muscles respond better to stretching and strengthening.
Every Triage Wellness Institute treatment starts with a personal consultation. We’ll discuss all of your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. Your provider will also examine the treatment area(s). If together we determine that Sigma treatment will deliver pain relief and improved physical function we’ll create a treatment plan and schedule your sessions.
As you relax your Triage Wellness Institute provider will place the Sigma hand-held device against each of your vertebrae. Sigma sends mechanical vibrations through the skin which echo off the bone. Data is recorded by the Sigma Instrument and the practitioner will analyze the data to target bones that have become fixated and or misaligned.
Your provider will use the Sigma device to deliver a stronger vibrating pulse to release and realign the target vertebrae. There’s no body manipulation or “cracking” necessary. After the adjustment your body may try to return to the previous state. Due to improper muscle memory, most patients need a series of adjustments combined with home exercise/stretching to achieve long-term results.

Sigma adjustments in Minneapolis provide gentle and effective treatment to help with:
Your Sigma adjustments in Minneapolis are relaxing—there’s no manipulation of your body, no twisting/bending/etc. Instead, as your provider places the instrument over your spine, you’ll feel a very small and gentle pulse from the adjuster instrument, which many patients describe as a light “click.”
With the Sigma adjustor, you don’t hear the “crack” noise so often associated with manual chiropractic adjustments. When you do hear the crack/pop sound it’s much like when you “pop” your knuckles. Manipulating a joint can change the amount of pressure within it, creating a tiny gas bubble/bubbles in the joint. An adjustment—especially through non-Sigma physical manipulation—can quickly release the gas which makes the popping/cracking sound. Your body quickly absorbs the released gas providing relief from muscle/joint tension and pain.
Your provider uses the Sigma Instrument to measure force, mass and acceleration of the bone. A normal bone should move or resonate at 20 cycles per second (frequency).
The Sigma system does the following during analysis:
