What is an Activator?

The Activator is a small hand held instrument that is used at Logan Chiropractic and Wellness, Perth city. The Activator delivers a high velocity but low force impulse to the spinal vertebrae or joint. The Activator instrument is one of the more common therapeutic interventions used by chiropractors. The chiropractors at Logan Chiropractic and Wellness (Perth city) commonly use the Activator on children, the elderly or those that are not comfortable with manual adjustments.

The Activator is one of the most widely researched chiropractic techniques. Dr Tash Logan, at Logan Chiropractic and Wellness (in Perth city), was part of a team that conducted an 18-month research project comparing the efficiency of the Activator vs manual chiropractic adjustment. Results demonstrated the Activator had relatively equal therapeutic benefits to manual or diversified chiropractic manipulation. As a result, Dr Tash Logan decided to use the Activator instrument as part of her treatment at Logan Chiropractic and Wellness (Perth city).

What to expect when you receive this treatment at Logan Chiropractic and Wellness (Perth city)?
