Adjustment

Activator Care

What is an Activator?

An Activator is an adjusting instrument used to deliver gentle and effective treatment to patients of all ages. The Activator provides an impulse faster than the human hand, which means that less force is needed to deliver the chiropractic adjustment. Many chiropractors use the Activator to adjust their patients but only a small number carry the highest certification that Activator Methods Incorporated provides.

Who Can Benefit From Activator Care?

  • Children from birth to adolescence respond extremely well to gentle Activator Care
  • Those that do not enjoy the feeling or sound associated with a traditional manual adjustment
  • People who have limited range of motion in their neck or extremities
  • People with injuries or severe pain, and cannot tolerate other chiropractic methods

Activator Excels in Treating…

  • Wrists, elbows, knees, ankles, and other joints in the arms and legs
  • Ribs (Are you having pain when you breathe deeply?)
  • Stiff or painful backs and necks
  • Recent or new injuries

The Importance of Seeing an Expert.

There is a vast difference between a doctor that owns an Activator instrument and a doctor that has been trained to utilize the Activator Method of care. It is important to choose a highly trained doctor to insure that you get the best results possible.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is a health care profession with a focus in dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care is most often used to improve physical function or treat back pain, neck pain, and headaches but can also be used to improve function or treat pain in the joints of the arms and legs, the jaw, and many other parts of the body. Doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians receive an extensive education to practice a drug-free, hands on approach to health care. Chiropractors have the training and skills to diagnose health conditions, provide rehabilitative exercises, nutritional advice, and lifestyle counseling. When chiropractic care is not the best treatment for a given condition, chiropractors may refer patients to the appropriate health care provider. In some cases chiropractors co-manage your care with other members of your health care team.

The chiropractic adjustment

The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic procedure performed by providing a controlled impulse into a joint that has become hypomobile (restricted in movement) with the goal of restoring normal joint movement. Chiropractic adjustments are safe and gentle for every member of your family.
