The Activator (Advanced Proficiency Rating)

This FDA approved procedure is one of the safest and gentlest methods for treating neck and back pain. It is called the Activator, and what it does is gently and safely decrease the muscle and joint tension in the neck and back, thereby reducing any muscle spasm present, increasing joint movement, and eliminating any nerve pressure or irritation. Here are some additional benefits of this fantastic treatment device:

  • It is all-natural. This means that you don't have to worry about any dangerous side effects.
  • You get the benefits of a chiropractic treatment without having to worry about the doctor being too aggressive or 'twisting and popping' your spine.
  • You won't receive an unreasonably long treatment plan.
  • You will receive a safe, gentle, and a very specific treatment for your pain.
  • Treatments are affordable.


SO HOW DOES THIS STATE OF THE ART NECK & BACK PAIN RELIEVER WORK?

When all of the joints in the neck and back are moving normally, the muscle and joint tension is expected to be approximately the same. If some of the muscles are tight and the joints are restricted in motion, this can lead to muscvle spasm, joint stiffness or "locking up", as well as irritation or pressure on the surrounding spinal nerves. Once a joint is determined to be restricted, the Activator may be used to give small, gentle, mechanical impulses into the restricted joint to help break up the tension, relieve muscle spasm, and restore normal joint movement, which will help reduce or eliminate your neck and back pain. Not only is the treatment pain-free, but most of my patients find it relaxing and look forward to future treatments.The Activator is also good at safely reducing the pain of: headaches,TMJ Disorder(Jaw Problems), shoulder ailments, carpal tunnel syndrome and foot pain. Dr. Carrie is rated "Advanced Proficiency" which is the highest status an activator physician can rate.
