Chiropractors are primary healthcare professionals trained to assess, diagnose and treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions. One of the key components to chiropractic care is to ensure that muscles and joints are functioning properly. To achieve this, chiropractors use adjustments to decrease pain and restore range of motion of joints and muscles. An adjustment is a non-invasive technique where the chiropractor uses their hands to apply a thrust to restricted joints of the spine and extremities. For those looking for a lower force treatment, the Activator can be used to avoid the “popping” sound that is most commonly experienced with manual adjustments.
