Activator Method - Lower Force Adjusting Technique

The Activator Technique was developed in the late 1960's and in the past 30 years has grown to be the most widely used "low-force" technique in chiropractic. This specific system of adjusting has been developed with the ability to restore spinal balance and joint alignment with safety and comfort to the patient. The adjustment is given by means of a a small hand-held instrument (an Activator) that is very specific in its contact. A spring inside delivers a high-speed, but gentle, thrust to the vertebrae or joint via a small rubber tip. The thrust delivered by the instrument is so quick that it accelerates ahead of the body's own tendency to tighten up and resist the thrust of an adjustment. Because of the accuracy and controlled light force, Activator Methods adjustments are suitable and comfortable for all types of patients, ranging from pregnant women, babies and children, to athletes and senior citizens.
