Activator Methods®

We use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.

First the Evaluation

We begin by analysing how well your spine moves. We test how well you turn and bend. While you’re lying face down, we’ll evaluate the length of your legs. This time-tested protocol tells us if subluxations exist and their location.

Activator Instrument

Activator Instrument: the hand-held instrument delivers a precise, repeatable force at just the right angle.

The Adjusting Instrument

The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument 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 elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.

The Follow Up

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.

Perfect for babies and children

Because the Activator Instrument is able to deliver such a precise and low-force adjustment, it is a perfect option for adjusting babies and children, right from birth. It is so gentle, newborn babies often sleep through the entire appointment!
