PATRICIA ABREGO - Activator Manipulation in SAN ANTONIO, TX

 
Dr. PATRICIA ABREGO uses Activator Manipulation in Texas to help restore normal alignment in the spine and legs. Slight vertebral or pelvic misalignments can be a normal anatomic finding. However, many patients in Texas find that these misalignments can also result from chronic or acute soft tissue inflammation. The goal of Dr. PATRICIA ABREGO is to identify if a variation in leg-length is either normal, a result of soft tissue inflammation or joint misalignment, and/or contributing to pain along the back, hip leg or feet.
Dr. PATRICIA ABREGO will perform a leg-length analysis to help determine when to adjust and when not to adjust the spine. If the leg-length analysis suggestes an imblance, then "pelvic deficiency (P.D.)" or "functional short leg" may be present and activator manipulation may be beneficial.
Some people may have a difference in leg lengths with up to 2 centimeters (a bit under an inch) is considered normal. However, people with more pronounced leg length differences tend to develop back, hip and leg pain over time. When an inequality or "imbalance" is found, Dr. PATRICIA ABREGO can use the activator manipulation technique at various points along the spine, pelvis, and body.
The FDA approved Activator Adjusting Instrument is a handheld, spring-loaded mallet that Dr. PATRICIA ABREGO uses to help adjust the position of the pelvis and legs until the legs appear to be equal in length. This approach is not a direct method of spinal manipulation.
The cost of a Activator Manipulation treatment in Texas ranges from $20 - $50, depending on the amount of treatment provided and any other concurrent treatments.
