Some Americans miss out on the benefits of chiropractic care, as they are worried about traditional adjustments that use forceful movements. While such adjustments are safe, they are not the only type available. For instance, the Activator Method can be a great alternative, and you can learn more about it with our team at Total Alignment Center in Stafford Township, NJ. A chiropractic adjustment from our chiropractor might be just what you need.
What Is the Activator Method and How Does It Work?
The Activator Method technique utilizes a gentle, high velocity, controlled thrust to treat the target area. This occurs with the use of a small handheld instrument.
During treatment, the patient may lay face down on a table. Our chiropractor will find troubled spots along the spinal column, and then place the instrument in that zone. The instrument will deliver a quick thrust that can adjust the joint and any surrounding tissues.
Benefits of the Activator Method
One of the biggest benefits of this technique is that it allows people who do not feel comfortable with traditional adjustments receive the care that they need. It is also gentle and usually painless. It is also useful for applying the same amount of force each time.
Some other benefits include the following:
- The Activator Method allows for very targeted, precise adjustments to the area in pain.
- As it is such a quick thrust, patients do not have as much time to tense up. When muscles around the spine are tense, it can interfere with the results of traditional adjustments. With the Activator Method, the chance of this happening is greatly reduced.
- It can be combined, like manual adjustments, with other chiropractic treatments, such as cold laser therapy, to achieve optimal results and healing.
Conditions the Activator Method Can Treat
Our chiropractor can use this technique for a wide range of issues throughout the body, including:
- Disc issues
- Joint pain and inflammation
- Headaches and migraines
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Pinched nerves
- Neurological issues
- Limited range of motion
