What is Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique?
Activator Methods chiropractic technique was developed in the late 1960's and in the past 30 years has grown to be the most widely used low-force technique in chiropractic. This specific system of adjusting has been developed with the ability to restore proper spinal balance - and to do it with improved safety and comfort.
How does the Activator adjusting instrument work?
The hand held Activator instrument is a relatively new concept in light force adjusting. It has been specially designed to deliver a controlled, light and fast thrust without undue strain to the patient. The thrust delivered by the instrument is so quick that it accelerates ahead of the body's own tendency to tighten up and resist the thrust of an adjustment. Because of the accuracy and controlled light force, Activator Methods adjustments are suitable and comfortable for all types of patients, ranging from pregnant women, babies and children, to athletes and senior citizens.
