The Activator Method is the third most popular type of chiropractic treatment method using a device as an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine and extremities.
Activator is the most highly researched, and reproducible between Doctors. All Activator trained Doctors utilize the same methodology and protocol giving the most clinically reproducible results.
The device is categorized as a mechanical force manual assisted instrument, which delivers a low force impact / impulse thrust to the area of involvement / malfunction, this is generally regarded as a softer chiropractic treatment technique, generally referred to as “low force adjusting”. We use an activator as part of our chiropractic treatment.
This video gives you a nice overview of how the activator method works, please take a few minutes and review it and ask us any questions that you may have regarding how it may work in assisting us to help you with your health and wellness concerns.
I have personally used it with patient management and correction of spinal subluxations and extremity malfunctions for over 30 years, most satisfactorily. Additionally, we do provide manual spinal and extremity adjusting as well as other therapies for correction and rehabilitation as well.
