Activator technique is a type of chiropractic technique that uses a small, handheld instrument called an Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle, low-force impulse to the spine. This technique is often described as gentle and less likely to cause discomfort than traditional manual adjustments. Some of the advantages of Activator technique over traditional chiropractic techniques may include:

  • More precision: The Activator instrument allows the practitioner to deliver a very specific and controlled impulse to the spine, which can be beneficial for patients with certain types of conditions or injuries.
  • Lower force: Because the Activator instrument uses a low-force impulse, it may be a good option for patients who are sensitive to more traditional, high-force adjustments.
  • Faster treatment: Activator technique may allow for quicker treatment sessions than traditional manual adjustments.

It's worth noting that not all chiropractors use activator technique and it's not considered as a standard technique of chiropractic care. It's also important to note that not all patients will respond well to Activator technique and the best technique for you will depend on your individual condition and preferences. It's always best to speak with a chiropractor directly to determine if Activator technique is right for you.

It's worth noting that the most common forms of chiropractic care are based on manual adjustments rather than low force adjustments, so not all chiropractors use activator technique. It's also important to note that patients are a diverse group and that chiropractic techniques, all 200 of them, can be quite diverse in their presentation and not everyone will be comfortable with or respond well all techniques. However, most patients will find a chiropractic style that suits them and their condition. Those who would prefer a low force non crack technique are more likely to be drawn to a chiropractic technique such as the activator Method. Remember, it's always best to discuss with your chiropractor directly to determine if Activator technique is right for you.
