The activator method uses a specialized instrument to provide precise chiropractic adjustments. When it is used along with the activator protocol for determining when and where to make the adjustments, it can relieve pain and restore proper function in the spine and joints. At Green Apple Wellness Center in Park City, the activator method is used along with other chiropractic techniques.
What is the Activator Technique?
The activator technique uses a small tool known as an activator. It delivers a high-velocity low impact thrust that helps to realign the spine and joints of the body. The gentle and precise nature of the tool makes it perfect for patients of all ages.
Manual adjustments can cause muscle soreness because the muscles fight against the repositioning. This can cause mild discomfort. The activator technique works so quickly that the muscles don't have time to react to the adjustment, making the procedure comfortable and painless. This also allows the joints and muscles to regain stability over time. The joints and muscles are retrained to remain in their proper positions, which increases your stability and reduces dysfunction.
What to Expect With the Activator Technique
The activator technique begins with our chiropractor checking your leg length inequality and neurological reflex testing. This lets the chiropractor know where you need the adjustment. You will lay down on the exam table. You may feel a gentle tapping, similar to a light massage. This is the actual adjustment being applied.
Conditions Treated by the Activator Technique
The activator technique can treat any condition that can be treated with manual adjustments. It is the perfect treatment for joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation, because of the gentle force applied. It can also be used to treat TMJ, disc problems, and neck pain.
This technique can also be used to treat neurological conditions. Chiropractic care is based on the belief that joint dysfunction interferes with proper nerve function. Some chiropractors focus on joint dysfunction, while others focus on nerve dysfunction. The activator technique focuses on nerve dysfunction. This makes it ideal for treating neurological problems as well as misalignments and pain.
