What Is the Activator Technique?
Traditional chiropractic care utilizes pressure and strategic manipulation in order to bring the spine and other joints into proper alignment. The Activator Technique is based upon these same principles, but instead of the practitioner’s hand, a small device is also used to aid with these adjustments. This device is known as the activator adjusting instrument.
This method has been used since 1967. The instrument is used to adjust dysfunctional joints. It can also be used to help diagnose where adjustments need to be made. Gentle impulses are released from the tool. These impulses are released directly into the spine. This restores mobility in the area as well as pain relief.
Which Conditions Can Be Treated with the Activator Technique?
Chiropractors use the Activator Technique to successfully treat the following conditions:
- Neurological conditions
