What Is Instrument Adjusting?
Chiropractors use an instrument-adjusting tool to deliver gentle and precise adjustments to a given part of the patient’s body. Due to its wide range of benefits, this handheld device is gradually replacing traditional manual manipulation techniques.
Benefits of the Chiropractic Adjusting Instrument
Most patients who seek chiropractic care do not like their spine being twisted and popped, making them uneasy and skeptical about the whole procedure. Instrument adjusting is the ideal alternative to those hands-on techniques that could prove detrimental, especially to the younger, older, and injured patients.
With instrument adjusting, you won’t feel any discomfort or pain, but instead, you’ll only feel a light tapping sensation on your body.
Instrument adjusting achieves the same pain relief and increased range of motion as traditional chiropractic care. However, it’s important to note that instrument adjusting involves fewer side effects and little to no post-treatment pain compared to manual manipulation.
One of the best things about instrument adjusting is that it shows high repeatability compared to hands-on manual manipulation techniques. Using instrument adjusting, chiropractors can offer their patients the graphical results before and after an adjustment has been completed.
What Is the Activator Method Treatment?
The Activator Method Treatment refers to a manual manipulation technique used by chiropractors to treat and ease neck and back pain and other extremity complaints. This treatment technique uses the activator-adjusting instrument as an alternative to traditional manipulation.
This technique utilizes low amplitude (HVLA) thrust and high velocity like the "diversified technique," thus enabling chiropractors to provide a downward force and quick impulse on the patient’s joints.
Even though instrument adjusting is gentle, stimulating proprioceptors could cause slight soreness among some patients. However, this is usually temporary, and you can get rid of it by holding a towel-wrapped ice pack on the area for 20 minutes, twice a day.
