ELIZABETH M. ACOSTA - Activator Manipulation in COSTA MESA, CA

Doctor ELIZABETH ACOSTA uses Activator Manipulation in California 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 California find that these misalignments can also result from chronic or acute soft tissue inflammation. The goal of Dr. ELIZABETH ACOSTA 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.
To detect if a short leg syndrome or pelvic deficiency is present, Doctor ELIZABETH ACOSTA carefully examines each patient in California, holding the patient's feet in various ways while the patient lies face down on an examining table to find where the problem is located. Other parts of the body may be tested in various other ways.
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, Doctor ELIZABETH ACOSTA 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 Doctor ELIZABETH ACOSTA 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 California ranges from $20 - $50, depending on the amount of treatment provided and any other concurrent treatments.
