How The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique Can Help to Treat Your Pain

In the fight against chronic back and neck pain, it is reassuring to know that more and more people are beginning to understand the many benefits that are available to them as a result of choosing a treatment plan that includes regular chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care is completely natural and very safe, since it does not rely on using potentially risky medications or invasive procedures in order to bring relief from pain. If you are ready to begin learning more about the benefits of chiropractic care, it is important to know that there are actually several types of treatment methods that licensed doctors of chiropractic can use to help you achieve pain relief and a better quality of life overall.

According to an informative post by Spine Health, the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a very useful method that is used to diagnose and treat back and neck pain, as well as chronic headaches and even migraines.

So how exactly does the Activator technique work? It is an alternative pain relief method from the more traditional manual manipulation techniques that most doctors of chiropractic tend to use on patients with chronic backaches, neck pains, and even migraine headaches. The Activator technique involves the use of a small adjustment instrument that is hand held by the doctor of chiropractic. This tool is used to induce a gentle amount of force to the spinal column, in a very similar manner to how chiropractors use their hands during traditional manual manipulation techniques.

The force from the activator tool is meant to reduce stiffness and inflammation in the joints of the upper and lower back, with the hopes of restoring flexibilty and mobility in the process. This technique is more focused and centered than traditional methods, since it applies a good amount of pressure and force to small yet specifically targeted areas on the body that really need to be worked on by the chiropractor. One interesting aspect of using the activator tool has to do with its speed while being put to use; some medical professionals believe that it works so well because the bodydoes not have time to tense up as an involuntary reaction response to the pressure. 

If you are experiencing any sort of aches or pains in your back or neck, or you suffer from chronic and debilitating migraines, chiropractic care may be right for you. Be sure to consult with a chiropractor at your nearest clinic of The Joint for a personalized treatment plan that will help you.
