What is the Activator Technique?

The Activator Technique is known as a softer, or more gentle method of spinal adjustments. As opposed to a traditional chiropractic adjustment, which uses the hands to adjust a specific vertebra or joint, the Activator handheld device delivers an impulse to the targeted area. With this method, there is no twisting or turning. The Activator Technique produces enough gentle force to shift the subluxation back into its respective alignment within the spine without causing further injury. This technique delivers a controlled and reproducible impulse force to a specific vertebra or targeted area as well as the joints that connect them.

How Does the Activator Technique Work?

The Activator Technique uses a gentle impulse to shift the subluxation to its correct place within the spine, releasing pressure from spinal nerves and eliminating the strain from spinal muscles. The Activator gives off no more than 0.3 J of kinetic energy in a 3-millisecond pulse. This process is more rapid than a manual chiropractic adjustment but is just as targeted, and can be repeated as necessary without causing injury.

What are the Benefits from the Activator Method?

By correcting subluxations in the spine, the Activator Method can help to restore motion, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain. The Activator can remove blockages in nerve flow, restoring proper function and sensation to the affected area. Much like a chiropractic adjustment, the Activator Technique can benefit those with back or neck pain as well as chronic headaches. However, subluxations can cause much more far-reaching effects than just localized pain. Effectively removing subluxations can be beneficial for those suffering:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Nerve pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Ear infections
  • Low immunity
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Organ dysfunction
  • Digestive disorders
  • High blood pressure
  • Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD)
