At Healthy Spine Family Chiropractic, the Activator Technique is available to
reduce the discomforts of back pain, neck pain and headaches.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thornton, CO – June 10, 2017 – Healthy Spine Family Chiropractic is pleased to announce that they
offer the Activator Technique to alleviate neck pain, back pain, and headaches.
This method is among the most-commonly utilized modalities in chiropractic care. An alternative
to traditional manual manipulation, this technique is administered with an Activator Adjusting
Instrument, a small implement that provides a gentle spinal thrust. The chiropractor first evaluates the
patient to determine which joints are affected, then performs the technique with the patient lying face
down on the adjustment table. Spinal adjustments are intended to restore normal motion and
alignment to affected joints.
The procedure doesn’t involve any twisting or turning. Instead, the instrument is applied to tissues at or
near the misaligned vertebra. The adjuster is used to deliver pressure, followed by a quick
thrust. Patients report that it feels like having their knees tapped to test their reflexes. Afterward, the
practitioner will likely assess the affected area to confirm that treatment was effective.
It’s usually recommended that patients undergo this therapy for multiple sessions, perhaps once or
twice a week for four to six weeks.
The technique is FDA-approved and is used by approximately 50,000 US chiropractors. It is typically
utilized in conjunction with other techniques or therapies. Other techniques include Diversified,
Graston, Thompson, and Flexion/Distraction. Therapy is designed to activate the body’s self-healing
properties by restoring proper nervous system functioning. Correcting spinal misalignments and soft
tissue injuries facilitates recovery from a variety of conditions and promotes overall wellness by
minimizing the risk of injury or illness in the first place.
