Many injuries or conditions can cause joint pains, and there are chances you may find your recovery overwhelming. At the same time, some methods can ease your whole experience and help you recuperate. One of the methods is Activator Method, created by Dr. Arlan Fuhr. It is a small hand-held spring-loaded tool that provides low force impulses to targeted areas and delivers chiropractic adjustment. It is one of the most common therapeutic methods chiropractors use to treat various types of back and neck pain and other extreme complaints related to the spine and joints. The Activator levels are adjustable, and the tool is too quick to allow the body’s muscles to resist making the treatment effective. It is a controlled force that does not put joints in any compromising positions, such as bending or twisting. It is a pain-free and effective treatment for people of all age groups, especially children, as it is tough to stay still for a long time during the treatment.
Benefits of Activator Method
It is highly effective and safe for people of all ages and can help the following:
- Relieve neck and joint pain
- Reduce inflammation of joints
- Relieve disc problems
- Relieve neurological conditions
- Relieve Temporomandibular Joint disorder (TMJ)
How Activator Method Works?
Our chiropractor will ask about your medical history, including accident or trauma and health symptoms. Then you will be asked to lie face down on the adjustment table. The treatment usually begins with the lower back and then moves to other areas such as the head and focuses on each vertebral segment. Our chiropractor will evaluate your signs and symptoms to identify the joints of the spine or the extremities. Then after the evaluation is complete, they will apply the device to the identified areas. You may feel pressure at the beginning, followed by a quick thrust. It is a pain-free low-force device applied on the affected areas. The Activator may help reduce inflammation and stiffness in the joints.
The evaluation and adjustments are made in a timely manner, and our chiropractor may recommend further treatment depending on your adjustment to strengthen your muscles and maintain overall spinal health.
