recoil thrust

recoil thrust

A high-velocity, low-force thrust on a client’s back while he or she lies face-down on a table which accommodates the transiently increased pressure and anatomic deviation of the vertebral body. The recoil thrust is one of the two most common techniques used for chiropractic adjustment of the vertebral column.

Information on an insurance site for individual care (www.individual-health-plans.com) says this form of healing art, first offered in the 1800s, is becoming more accepted: "Chiropractic caregivers use recoil thrust, rotational thrust, exercise rehabilitation, temperature treatments and nutrition, along with other therapies." Typically, it reports, plans offering coverage for less traditional approaches are only offered through group packages and then only as discount plans (in which the patient receives a discounted fee for service but is responsible for most of the expense).
In addition to being superbly accurate, the .475's recoil thrust is notably lighter than the .454 Casull because of its larger caliber diameter, and with Hornady's 400-grain MAG XTP/HP bullet going out at over 1,300 fps, it packs a hell of a heavy-bullet wallop on the other end.
