Chiropractic Technique: Activator Method and Gonstead Technique
Activator Method is a held by hand, spring-loaded instrument-based manipulation and adjustment order. Alternatively of the manipulating and adjusting forces being produced by hand, energy is created with the small tool that gives a lighter, but faster, thrust that can be provided by hand. The activator can be used as a first treatment protocol for all patients or a selective way for patients who may not want manual manipulation and adjustment or where manual manipulation and adjustment may be contraindicated.
A Particular Chiropractic Technique That Is Different From Diversified Technique
Gonstead Technique is a particular chiropractic method that is different from Diversified technique because it concentrates principally on P-A adjusting, rather than on rotary adjusting, but is still produced by hand, and ends typically in joint cavitation. Palpation, X-ray analysis, and temperature gradient studies may be used in clinical decision-making, For example, what segment or segments to manipulate or adjust.
