What is the Activator Technique?

This technique uses a small, spring-loaded device called an activator. This spring-loaded chiropractic tool uses low-force impulses to apply pressure to specific spinal points to gently adjust them into a proper position. This process removes the pressure off of corresponding nerve endings by alleviating swelling and inflammation that sources bodily pain.

Like manual spinal manipulations, the goal of using the Activator Technique® in Inver Grove Heights is to help restore motion to the joints or vertebra to treat neck pain, back pain, extremity pain and head pain. Because of its accuracy and the control, our chiropractor in Inver Grove Heights has over directed the tool, this method also provides soft tissue pain relief as well as promoting deep healing. This quick adjustment tool provides natural pain relief for a variety of conditions.

What Conditions Are Treated with the Activator Technique?

We use the activator tool with patients suffering from a variety of conditions.

Neck Injuries: Neck injuries such as whiplash can cause tremendous pain and sensitivity, and we find that our patients often respond better to the activator tool than traditional adjustments. There is no twisting with the activator, making it the ideal solution for neck pain.

Back Pain: Lower lumbar injuries such as herniated discs and subluxations can be challenging to pinpoint with manual adjustments. However, the activator used in combination with chiropractic adjustments can help pinpoint trouble areas and even provide soft tissue pain relief.

Headaches and Migraines: Due to its gentle pressure, this tool is able to safely address areas of the neck and head that often source head pain. Many migraine sufferers get tremendous relief with the activator method.
