Activator Method Treatment in Phoenix
Activator Technique – Chiropractic Treatment Method
The Activator Method chiropractic technique uses a spring-loaded, hand-held mechanical instrument called the Activator adjusting instrument. This instrument allows chiropractors to provide a quick, low-force impulse at specific points.
Treatments involving an Activator adjusting instrument offer two advantages:
- Limited force: The amount of force used in the treatment is localized and controlled. It is a gentle method of chiropractic care where the joint is not put in possibly compromised positions like twisting or bending to prevent complications.
- Quick Impulse: Since it’s a fast-acting instrument, the muscles of the body do not tense up as much or offer resistance against the device. The treatment is more effective as muscle resistance is not a factor here.
What To Expect?
A general treatment routine involves the patient lying on the chiropractor’s adjustment table face down. The lower back region is targeted first in the treatment, with the focus slowing progressing towards the head, followed by the targeting of various vertebral segments one after the other.
The patient will be evaluated by the chiropractor to detect symptoms and signs that can help identify the various spinal joints or extremities responsible for the pain. The Activator instrument is then used to treat this condition.
The Activator adjusting chiropractic instrument happens to be a widely-used therapeutic intervention used by skilled chiropractors, second only to the Diversified technique. The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners reports that over 50% of chiropractors based out of the USA regularly deploy this method.
