Vagus nerve stimulation, low-level laser therapy, and nutritional and diagnostic testing were among the hottest technology topics in 2022 among chiropractors, helping DCs provide another level of pain relief and whole body care and healing.
“Digital laser foot scan, digital x-ray, MRI, cold laser therapy and spinal decompression – these are the technologies and new chiropractic diagnostic tests that will help any chiropractor become a better diagnostician and healer,” writes Tim Maggs, DC . “When you perform an examination that provides visual evidence on a patient, including a digital laser foot scan and digital standing x-rays, you have a much greater influence on the patient’s appropriate decision-making.”
The Chiropractic Economics website’s Top 5 Technology Articles in 2022 also included spinal decompression and mobilization, with an e-book focused on case studies, research and the latest technology, where “indications for use of FDA include relief from major causes of mechanical back pain, including lumbar disc herniation (protrusion), disc bulge, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, radiating leg pain, low back pain and localized back pain.
Here are the Top 5 Tech Articles of 2022:

Improving gut health can go a long way to improving musculoskeletal issues as well. Adding a targeted protocol of daily supplements helps relieve musculoskeletal inflammation and reduces intervertebral disc degeneration… If your gut is healthy, your musculoskeletal system is healthy. As Confucius said, “A healthy man wants a thousand things; a patient only wants one.
4. eBook: Spinal Decompression and Mobilization
BY EC PERSONNEL
The technology and wide range of evidence-based applications are commonly used as a primary musculoskeletal treatment intervention or co-treatment in combination with epidural injections, physiotherapy, chiropractic and medical manual therapy to affect the results of spinal rehabilitation.
3. Chiropractic diagnostic tests and new technology guidelines for the profession
BY TIM MAGGS, DC
I have taught for years that the scope of chiropractic in every state is far wider than that of any other profession, both diagnostically and therapeutically. However, many chiropractors practicing today fall victim to the restrictions and directives of their academic teachings, insurance guidelines, and a totally ill-educated public…
2. Webinar: Exploring the Application and Science of Low Level Laser Therapy
BY EC PERSONNEL
Integrate concepts in laser phototherapy: wavelength, frequency, speed of light, fluence, penetration, secondary and primary physiological influences; contrast the differences between thermal and non-thermal laser therapy; develop the relationship between mitochondria, free radicals, ATP, cytochrome c oxidase enzyme and laser photon therapy, and more.
1. Vagus Nerve Stimulation and Technology to Treat Chronic Health Conditions
BY NAVAZ HABIB, DC
Stimulation of the fibers of the auricular branch of the ear gives access to only 1% of the fibers of the vagus nerve present in the cervical trunk. Certain cervical trunk devices have even been shown to significantly improve cognitive performance under sleep deprivation stress and are used by the US Air Force for their pilots (McIntire, 2021).
