What is the Activator Technique?

The treatment at Prime Health and Wellness is a low force chiropractic technique that is widely used- the activator method. It’s one of the most popular forms of spinal adjustment, and it’s what our team uses to make you feel better.

The Activator is a handheld and spring-loaded instrument that provides low-force and fast thrusts to targeted areas, releasing rapid pulses. This leaves muscles unable to tense because of the lack of resistance.
Is This The Right Treatment For You?
Our chiropractors start by checking your spine to see how flexible it is. You’ll be lying face down and they will check the length of your legs. This may feel a little uncomfortable, but it’s necessary for them to make sure there aren’t any serious problems with your spine.

This time-tested and proven protocol helps us know if you have any spinal misalignments or subluxations and find their exact location—while helping us determine when to adjust and not. This is done because we want to make sure that our adjustment will help you more effectively than it would otherwise, without causing future problems.
What is the Activator?
The activator method uses a handheld adjusting instrument to deliver consistent low-force yet high-velocity thrusts, ensuring precise performance throughout the sessions. This is because it feels good and is effective for an individual’s needs.

The Activator Method may be a more popular option for people looking to relieve chronic back pain or stiffness in their body due to its low force yet high velocity thrusts that ensure very precise performances during sessions.

The Activator is a device that is able to help with the adjustment of the spine as well as joints such as your knees, wrists, elbows. The process is much faster than adjustments delivered by hand and this leaves your body with little time to resist. With these more comfortable and efficient adjustments, the Activator can be an excellent addition to any chiropractor’s office or clinic!
Is It Safe?
Yes, very. The Activator treatment is an instrument that produces low-amplitude and high-velocities impacting the spine and is generally considered a safe procedure. There are no prior reports of any harmful side effects from a chiropractic activator treatment. The Activator treatment is considered a safe procedure and has been shown to be effective in alleviating pain. The frequency at which the product should be used will vary from person to person, but it usually ranges between 3-5 days per week.
