The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique® is a diagnostic and treatment system used by some chiropractors to treat many types of back pain, neck pain, and headaches (both chronic and migraine).
The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.
It is an alternative to the traditional manual form of spinal manipulation, known as the high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust.
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is one of several techniques our doctors here at Lifetime Health & Wellness use when treating patients. Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care that may be most beneficial for older patients, pediatric patients and anyone else whom may require or prefer a more gentle adjustment.
This unique hand-held instrument has been studied extensively with results published in hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers, and was designed to give patients a specific and gentle adjustment.
