The Activator Methods® is one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world. To correct the misalignment, we use the Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument. This is a handheld, spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust at a precise angle.
We begin by analyzing how well your spine moves – how well you turn and bend. While you’re lying face down, we’ll evaluate the length of your legs. This simple procedure can reveal significant differences in leg lengths and underlying spinal misalignment. It also helps us to know when to and not to adjust.
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 elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.
After your adjustment, we retest to make sure that the desired changes have been produced.
