What Is An Activator Used For?

Some chiropractors use a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a quick, low-force impulse to spinal joints with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted joint.

What does an activator do for a chiropractor?

One of the things we love about adjusting with the Activator is it’s so customizable to the patient.

This will help us to move the bone, release tendons or ligaments, and also do a quick release on the muscle, so it’s so adaptable to each patient.

Is the Activator right for you?

Patients of all ages can enjoy the benefits of an Activator adjustment. We can use it in full force in a bigger person’s low back or we can turn it down, way down to the minimum, and use it through a finger for a toddler or a young child.
