What Is the Activator Method?
The Activator Method aka Activator Technique is a type of instrument-assisted joint and spinal adjustment technique. Our chiropractor uses small handheld device called the Activator Adjustment Instrument or simply an Activator.
The device works like an extension of the chiropractor’s hand to provide a gentle force without twisting and turning your body to fix misalignments. The nature of the equipment allows precise adjustments, even to small localized parts. Active Release Technique is mainly used to treat:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Inflammations of joints
- Chronic headaches
- Spinal disc conditions
How Does the Activator Method Work?
A subluxation in the spinal joints may compresses your spinal nerves. This creates a significant inflammation that eventually causes stiffness and limits the range of motion.
The Activator Technique uses gentle impulse to nudge the subluxation to its appropriate place within the spine, releasing pressure from spinal nerves and reducing strain from spinal muscles. The process is more effective than manual chiropractic therapy and can be repeated as necessary without causing injuries.
Who Can Benefit from the Activator Method?
Pain management through the Activator method is ideal for those suffering from:
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Low immunity
- Organ dysfunction
- Anxiety or stress
- Nerve pain
- Ear infections
- Digestive disorders
- High blood pressure
Does the Activator Crack My Back?
No. Also, it doesn’t make cracking sounds when adjusting your spine because it’s a low-force high-speed type of adjustment equipment. If you don’t like hearing popping or cracking sounds like when you crack your knuckles, then the Activator Method may be the best type of chiropractic treatment for you.
