What Is the Activator Technique

Dec 7, 2016

One of the chiropractic techniques that the Chiropractors at AICA Snellville offers is called Activator.

The Activator Chiropractic Technique is a low-force, gentle approach to chiropractic care.

The technique has been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960s, bringing relief to people with a diverse set of health concerns.

Incorporating the latest advances in chiropractic, neurological and orthopedic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal adjustments using research-based analysis and the Activator Adjusting Instrument can help restore spinal balance comfortably and safely.

Because of its gentle nature and effectiveness, the Activator Method has grown to become the world’s most widely-used chiropractic technique.

How Does The Activator Technique Work?

The technique utilizes specific protocols to test neurological reflexes, analyze leg length inequality, identify issues with body mechanics, and detect spinal joint dysfunction.

By scrutinizing the results of these examinations, an Activator doctor can initiate the process of reestablishing spinal balance in the patient.

The Activator Adjusting Instrument is the device more doctors choose to deliver low-force chiropractic adjustments.

This unique hand-held instrument has been studied at length with results published in hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers, and was designed to provide patients with a specific and gentle adjustment.

The Activator provides a controlled, quick thrust that is comfortable for the patient.  In fact, adjustments with the Activator are so fast and measured, the body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing
for a more accurate and precise adjustment.

Patients of all ages can enjoy the benefits of an Activator adjustment. The technique is especially helpful for children who sometimes have trouble laying motionless.

The Activator adjustment is so quick and comfortable, children often look forward to their following visit! Older patients, or those with osteoporosis, arthritis or other bone-weakening disorders find the Activator Method to be effective and gentle.

The low-force thrust of the Activator Adjusting Instrument, and the doctor’s ability to pin point the precise location of the problem through Activator analysis, can relieve a patient’s pain without discomfort.
