activador
Explanation:
The Activator is a spinal adjusting instrument that is similar to the ProAdjuster in that it provides low force. The Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique system of analysis isolates and locates euronro-articular dysfunctions or subluxations by observing changes in relative leg lengh while the patient lies prone on a treatment table The Actavotor Adjusting Instrument is applied based on indications from the analysis as to somatic locationand force vector. The Activator produces a maximum of 0.3 Joules of kinetic energy, which is intended to be sufficient to induce relative movement of vertebrae and their associated joints, but below the forces associated with tissue injury.
