Activator Method

Incorporating the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal adjustments using research-based analysis can help restore spinal balance safely and comfortably.

Activator Method

The Activator Method is a chiropractic technique that uses a handheld instrument called an Activator to deliver precise, gentle adjustments to the spine and other joints in the body. This method is different from traditional manual manipulation, as it uses a specific force and speed to adjust the joints, rather than relying on physical force from the chiropractor. 

How Does the Activator Method Work?

Restoring spinal balance safely and successfully has been the driving force behind the Activator Method Technique

The Activator Works When It’s Used Correctly

Activator Method Balance

The Activator Method uses specific protocols to detect spinal joint dysfunction that focus on analyzing leg-length inequality and testing neurological reflexes to determine where, when and when not to perform an adjustment. In addition, the Activator Method uses only one thrust per area of contact to initiate the process of restoring spinal balance in the patient. By evaluating the results, an Activator doctor can initiate the process of restoring spinal balance in the patient.

It is important to note that a true Activator Method experience involves leg-length testing and only one thrust per area of contact to restore spinal balance in the patient. If your experience did not include leg-length testing, or if it involved repeated or multiple thrusts with the Activator on each area, you did not have a true experience. If you have not had an Activator Methods experience from a doctor with a Proficiency Rating in the Activator Methods chiropractic technique, you may not know whether or not this method is right for you. 

The Activator Method is a safe and effective way to improve joint function and alleviate pain without the twisting, cracking, or popping sounds associated with traditional manual manipulation. 

Though some believe chiropractic care is intended only to relieve back and neck pain, it actually does much more. A wide variety of health problems stem from spinal imbalance and dysfunction. Everyday living, stress and old injuries can cause vertebrae to lose their proper position or motion, irritating your nervous system, causing pain and nerve interference throughout the body.  By restoring spinal balance, chiropractic care aids the body in healing itself

If you are looking for a gentle and precise chiropractic treatment, the Activator Method may be the right choice for you.
