Instrument Adjusting for Better Results without Hurting Yourself
How much is it worth to be able to take care of patients without hurting yourself? The stress on the doctor’s body that is eliminated by instrument adjusting can dramatically improve the quality of life and extend ones career indefinitely. And if you think only in terms of income, how much is adding years of peak earning capability worth? Read more...
The addition of instrument adjusting into a new or existing practice can be an important key to better results, happier patients, more referrals and higher income with less doctor stress and fatigue.
The percussive and adjusting instruments I personally prefer are the ArthroStim® and VibraCussor® by Impac, Inc.
I consider instrument adjusting one of the most important developments of the last 50 years of chiropractic research and development. It provides multiple benefits for any chiropractor who incorporates it into his practice.
Main Benefits of Instrument Adjusting
Patients love instrument adjusting. It is gentle and eliminates the joint cracking sounds many find intimidating and offensive. While gentile, it can achieve very fast and dramatic results that “wow” the patients.
Instrument adjusting allows greater precision and versatility in adjusting the spine and extremities. It dramatically reduces the stress on the doctor's body. Too many chiropractor’s careers are cut short by injuries which occur at a rate comparable to professional football players.
Put simply, it extends and even saves careers.
Instrument adjusting permits adjusting of the full spine or selected areas in a wide range of positions: the usual prone and supine or with patients sitting or standing or even with the patient in motion. In fact, instruments allow for dynamic adjusting of the patient while walking in place, adding a whole new dimension to the corrective process by allowing adjustments to be made in motion and full weight bearing loads.
Dr. William Koch maintained a busy practice in the Hamptons, NY for 30 years and then relocated to the Bahamas to set-up an island 'paradise practice'. These days Dr. Bill and his wife, Kiana split their time between their practice in the quaint village of Mount Dora, Florida and their floating chiropractic office in Abaco, Bahamas, where they provide care to the remote out-island residents.
Dr. Bill's adventurous nature carries over to his professional life. He has explored - and personally worked with - most of the techniques on the site. His wide-range of experiences provide him with a unique overview and insights, which he shares with others through his writing and seminars. Dr. Koch has authored numerous articles for chiropractic magazines and also writes a newsletter/ blog: Chiropractice Made Perfect, which can be found on his website: https://drwilliamhkoch.com/
Dr. Koch also recently published the book: Conversations with Chiropractic Technique Masters, available as and e-book on Kindle or in print from Amazon.
He also teaches seminar workshops in The Koch Protocols for Integrated Advanced Chiropractic Techniques. These hands on workshop style seminars teach the protocols Dr. Koch has put together over his 50 years in practice, which integrate his favorite technique methods into a cohesive system for consistently great results.
In his classes he teaches how he uses Advanced Examination and Adjusting Techniques including Instrument Adjusting for Better Results and Happier Patients in a simple model of a Patient Centered Referral Based Cash Practice.
In recent years there have been enormous improvements in the design and technology of hand held chiropractic instruments, as well as in the various technique methods for their use. This has resulted in the opportunity for significantly better, faster results for our patients. It has also resulted in effective treatment options that are much easier on the doctors. In his seminars Dr. William H. Koch discusses the benefits of instrument adjusting for both patients and doctors and demonstrating the various technique approaches he uses. His classes include one on one instruction and hands on practice through his unique See It, Feel It, Do It approach to teaching.
He teaches his unique cohesive protocols for instrument adjusting using the ArthroStim, VibraCussor and GRT Lite in conjunction with a variety of other techniques including SOT, Gonstead, Creed Neural Integration, Gonzalez Quantum Neurology Rehabilitation, and others to get incredible, quick and lasting results for your patients.
In addition to his other activities, Dr. Bill contributes insights about techniques on this site. Whenever you would like to get the perspective of someone who has 'been there and done that' (technique), look for his group picture. If one is available, click & enjoy!

What some doctors are saying about Koch Advanced Technique Seminars
“Dr. Koch and Kiana have put together something really special with this chiropractic program. Dr. Koch has found a way to integrate 50 years of clinical experience into a systems-based approach that speeds up clinical diagnosis, treatment and getting to the heart of patients’ issues. Although the information is densely packed, Dr. Koch has found a way to deliver the material in a user friendly and accessible way that is beneficial for anyone from the newbie starting out into practice to the seasoned veteran. As a doctor who has studied many different techniques over the years, it was refreshing to see how seamlessly Dr. Koch has blended together several different chiropractic approaches into an integrated and non-dogmatic format. I think that there are very few chiropractors who have this unique ability in our profession. His compassion for his patients and passion for his profession come through every step of the way. Thank you, Dr. Koch, for raising the bar in chiropractic!”

“Dr. Koch and Kiana are amazing people. I found the clinical material to be very useful, relevant, and was able to use a lot of the techniques in practice the following week. Dr. Koch is a wealth of knowledge and has a lot to offer. Thank you both for a great seminar and I look forward to the next one!”

“Koch Advanced Technique Seminars -- simple to learn, yet profoundly effective. I've only taken the first seminar and the results are simply outstanding. In 4 visits, I am having patients with long term hip issues being reduced substantially to where they are able to get out and live life again. 8 out of 10 patients I am able to have them go from an 8/10 in pain to 0-2/10. In follow-ups with these patients, I am finding they are for the most part maintaining for a month or two following their last visit. Personally, I find this remarkable, because it is correcting something that in the past might last for a few weeks before they come back with the same issue again. Having patients tell me they can walk up stairs again with little to no pain or go on long car rides with little to no pain is amazing!
I've been to countless technique seminars and have used all sorts of equipment to help patients get better. Yet I find the effectiveness of this technique, using only SOT blocks, the VibraCussor and ArthroStim, is outstanding. All soon to be docs, new docs and even seasoned docs need to experience this technique. It has the lowest equipment cost investment for any doc and the results are amazing. Where else can you have all the equipment you need for about $3,500! Very little overhead needed and the patients do refer their friends! It is an amazing system.
Dr. Bill does a phenomenal job teaching, and it is a hands-on seminar from the beginning! He is a mastermind and has learned from almost all of the past and current virtuosos.
If you have limited funds and are looking for the best bang for your buck, your practice and your patients, then this is the seminar! It is worth every red cent.
