How Is The Activator Chiropractic Technique Performed?

To carry out the activator technique, the patient has to lie down in a prone position. The chiropractor will compare the functional leg lengths. Most of the times, the length of one leg seems to be smaller than the other leg. After this, a series of muscle tests would be carried out for which the patient will have to move their arms around in certain positions to activate the muscles. In case the lengths of the legs are not the same, then it means that the problem is at the vertebra. The chiropractor will move the instrument from the feet towards the head. The instrument releases enough force, which is applied to the points where the patient has the pain to help relieve the pain.
