ActivatorActivator Methods is one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world. Rather than manual adjustments, an adjusting instrument known as the “Activator” is used to restore normal joint function.

Firstly an analysis will take place to locate which joints of the spine or extremities are restricted in their motion. This will most likely involve a manual assessment as well as a leg length evaluation.

Once located, the Activator is then used to deliver the adjustment in the precise angle and direction required. The activator 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 extremities i.e. elbows, wrists, knees etc. as well as being helpful in treating pregnant patients and young children.
