Chiropractic: Alignment of the Spine
The Activator Method in Chiropractic
Being a part of the most researched chiropractic techniques, we thought it was best to touch on the Activator Method and tell you a few things about it!
Its efficiency is supported through research, unlike any other instrument adjusting technique! With research to back it, and clinical trials to support it, the Activator Method has proven its importance within the Chiropractic field. In the hands of an experienced and trained Chiropractor, this tool can assist the client in achieving and maintaining healthy alignment of the spine.
The handheld device is used to deliver a small amount of pressure to a joint or vertebra in the intention of aligning it correctly. Seeing as the force is sent quickly, the muscles have less time to tense, therefore allowing the Activator to freely manipulate the intended joint or vertebra. This tool can be used alongside manual manipulation of the spine in order to provide the client with the best treatment specific to them.
Next time you come into Wellness Plus, ask us about Activators and if they will be a part of your care plan! We look forward to seeing you!
