Activator Technique®

activator adjustment on backWe’re proud to use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world. With the Activator® handheld instrument, we can provide precise, gentle adjustments where and when you need it most.

This technique is often ideal for patients of all ages and walks of life. Children love our “clicker instrument”, and seniors can comfortably be adjusted more accurately using less energy.

We know you’ll love it as much as we do!

What to Expect

The Activator Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. It also makes the directed energy more precise, given at the exact angle necessary to best add motion to a joint.

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 best part? If you’re nervous about ‘cracking’, don’t be–there’s no popping sounds to be heard in this type of adjustment.

The Follow Up

After your adjustment, we retest to make sure the desired changes have been produced. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long until I’m feeling better?

Some patients find relief immediately after a single visit. Others with chronic issues feel better after continuous care for weeks or even months. We’ll always be evaluating your progress, and recommending visit frequency or making changes to your care plan as needed so that you experience the best results possible.

Can this be used in addition to other modalities?

Absolutely. We believe in making care custom for each patient. If we believe the Activator in addition to another method will be most beneficial for you, we’ll let you know.
