Chiropractic professionals utilize a wide selection of methods to address pain and stiffness throughout the body. One of the most effective methods used by the Chiropractors across the United States is the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique (AMCT). In this article, we will discuss how the method works to relieve pain and restore normalcy to your life.
Created by Arlan Fuhr, D.C., the Activator Method involves activating muscles specific to certain vertebrae along the spine. By doing this, patients experience almost immediate relief from pain. To activate the muscles, Chiropractors will have patients lie in a prone position and use a high-accuracy, purpose-built device to gently tap specific segments of vertebrae. This method is effective as it addresses the underlying cause of pain, instead of covering up the symptoms.
By directing the patient to conduct certain movements, chiropractors can isolate specific levels of the spine to determine which vertebrae segments are in need of attention. By observing various muscle reactions to these movements, it can be determined if a specific vertebra is not moving correctly. The gentle tap of the AMCT instrument resets the segment and provides immediate relief from pain.
