The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique® is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. It incorporates the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations along with research-based analysis in order to help restore proper spinal balance both safely and comfortably. Because of this, Activator Methods is now the world’s most widely-used instrument-assisted chiropractic technique.
The Activator Adjusting Instrument is the tool that most doctors choose to deliver low-force chiropractic adjustments. It is a hand-held spring-loaded instrument that has been extensively studied with research papers published in over one hundred peer-reviewed scientific journals.
The Activator Adjusting Instrument provides a consistent, controlled, high-speed thrust that is many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand. In fact, adjustments with the Activator are so quick and precise that the body’s muscles are less likely to resist, making it very comfortable for the patient. People of all ages can benefit from this kind of care, including those with arthritis, osteoporosis and even very young children, as well as individuals with knee, elbow or even wrist complaints.
