The Activator Method
The Activator Method is one of the most widely-researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy. Activator Methods has published hundreds of clinical and scientific peer-reviewed papers, worked with major academic research institutions, and received grants from recognized entities like the National Institutes of Health. We use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.
The Initial Assessment
We begin by assessing your spine and how it moves. We run a few different orthopedic tests which tell us if subluxations exist and their location. While you’re lying face down, we’ll evaluate the length of your legs. This simple procedure can reveal significant differences in leg lengths.
The Activator Instrument
The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. It helpful for adjusting elbows, jaws, wrists, knees and other joints of the body. 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.
