activator-methodWe use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.

First the Evaluation

We begin by analyzing how well your spine moves with range of motion and feeling the movement with your spine with our hands. We may incorporate some orthopedic tests to confirm our chiropractic findings.

This time-tested protocol tells us if subluxations exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.

Activator Instrument: the hand-held instrument delivers a precise, repeatable force at just the right angle. It does NOT cause a popping or cracking noise in the spine, which is why some patients prefer this gentle method. However, the benefits are powerful and similar to a manual adjustment.

The Adjusting Instrument

The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust.

Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.

The Follow Up

After your adjustment, we retest to make sure changes have been produced. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction.
