Chiropractors use various techniques and therapies to help treat patients for their illnesses, ailments, pain, and discomfort. One treatment used is the Activator Technique, an instrument-assisted therapy used by chiropractors to treat neck and back pain, as well as various extremity complaints. This chiropractic care treatment utilizes the Activator Adjusting Instrument, a hand-held mechanical instrument that delivers low-force, quick impulses at specific points along the spinal column to realign the body and provide pain relief. To learn more about the Activator Technique, talk to Dr. Feeney at Athena Chiropractic in Wilmington, DE.
Why do Chiropractors use the Activator Technique?
The Activator Technique is a gentle chiropractic technique that employs a spring-loaded, hand-held mechanical instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to adjust the spine. This tool allows the chiropractor to deliver precise and controlled impulses at specific points along the spinal column, aiding in realigning the body and providing patients with pain relief.
How Can Our Chiropractor Help with Pain Management?
Seeking chiropractic care for pain management offers patients an alternative to traditional medical care options. Chiropractic care is non-surgical and non-addictive, allowing patients to experience pain relief while promoting the body's natural healing process. Before starting treatment, our chiropractor will conduct an evaluation, including a physical exam, a discussion of medical history, and diagnostic tests.
Once a diagnosis is determined, Dr. Feeney will develop a treatment plan that targets the root cause of the pain, rather than merely masking the symptoms with prescription pain medications. Depending on the patient's unique needs, the plan may also incorporate using the Activator Technique.
What Are the Benefits of the Activator Technique?
Gentle chiropractic care provides various benefits to patients, and using the Activator Technique to correct spinal misalignments can offer additional advantages. Some benefits patients experience when their chiropractor uses the Activator Technique include restoring proper function, increasing range of motion, reducing inflammation, eliminating joint stiffness, and alleviating pain. Additionally, the Activator Technique can help remove nerve blockages, which can cause discomfort and pain.
