Vagus nerve stimulation, low level laser therapy, and nutrition 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 do an examination that provides visual evidence on a patient, including a digital laser foot scan and standing digital X-rays, you have a much greater influence over appropriate decision-making by the patient.”
The Top 5 technology articles from the Chiropractic Economics website in 2022 also included spinal decompression and mobilization, with an eBook focusing on case studies, research and the latest tech, where “FDA indications for use include relief from the 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 technology articles from 2022:

BY TIM MAGGS, DC
I’ve lectured for years that the chiropractic scope of practice in every state is far broader than that of any other profession, both diagnostically and therapeutically. Many chiropractors who are practicing today, however, fall victim to the restrictions and guidelines of their academic teachings, insurance guidelines, and a totally miseducated public …
2. Webinar: Exploring the application and science of low level laser therapy
BY CE STAFF
Integrate concepts in laser photon therapy: 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 tech to treat chronic health conditions
BY NAVAZ HABIB, DC
Stimulation to the auricular branch fibers on the ear only provides access to 1% of the vagus nerve fibers found in the cervical trunk. Some cervical trunk devices have even been shown to significantly improve cognitive performance under sleep deprivation stress, and are used by the U.S. Air Force for their pilots (McIntire, 2021).
