THE ACTIVATOR METHODS®
PAIN-FREE LIVING FOR LIFE
We encourage clients to make wellness visits a part of their ongoing healthcare routines, just as they would dental screenings. By catching small problems, we can usually stop larger issues from developing, keeping you pain free and mobile long into your future. No stress, no judgement, just compassionate care.
GENTLE, YET EFFECTIVE
This chiropractic technique has been around for nearly 40 years, is known for being gentle, and is very popular, especially with clients who tense up during manual manipulation. Because the Activator instrument is so quick, your body won’t have time to respond with resistance, which may actually speed up recovery. Patients report feeling improvement with back pain, neck pain, and even migraine headaches after just one visit. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees, and other joints of the body.
We begin with an evaluation of your spinal movement, typically by having you perform turning and bending movements. We’ll also check the length of your legs. Significant differences in leg length is a good indication that you have developed vertebral subluxations (or misalignments) of your spine.
ACTIVATION & RECHECKS
From here, you may be asked to move your arms or legs into various positions to fire muscles attached to particular vertebra. After activating these areas, we will recheck to see if your leg lengths have evened. If they have, it can be assumed that we have treated a problematic vertebra, and we’ll continue on down the spine, testing for and treating vertebral subluxations.
