Activator Technique

What Is The Activator Technique?

Our chiropractors at Chiropractic Health have experience and skill in utlising a technique known as the Activator technique.

An activator is a hand-held adjusting instrument which is used to imitate a manual adjustment. Allowing for a more gentle and specific approach, the activator produces a rapid thrust. This thrust acts more quickly than the stretch reflex in the muscles. This helps to inhibit people ‘tensing’ which can affect a normal adjustment. It is also used to increase range of motion and limits the risk of injury in people who have trouble with a regular adjustment.

The activator is good for seniors and children, or for people who prefer a more gentle approach to chiropractic care. It is also great for people in lots of pain at the initial stages of their injury.
Our chiropractors have years of experience seeing people with common issues like back pain, neck pain and headaches. This tool can help you get optimal results to get you back on track.

In summary, the benefits of the activator technique include:

Very accurate and specific
Increase range of motion in the joint (allows for more flexibility)
Good for older people and children
Good for people in lots of pain
