Want a more gentler Chiropractic Adjustment and experience than the traditional hands on method?

The Activator may be your answer...

The Activator adjusting instrument is a hand held spring-loaded devices that provides a

quick pulse to specific areas of the body. The goal of activator adjustments is the same as manual adjustments: to align the spine and other joints to improve bodily functionality.

If a patient is in a lot of pain, is overly sensitive to touch and tends to tense up during a manual adjustment, then the activator is the best choice.

Why should I choose the Activator over traditional spinal manipulation?

Traditional spinal manipulation is performed with chiropractor’s hands.  During the adjustment, a quick, firm thrust will be used to realign the joint.  While this is perfectly safe, the adjusted area is much larger with a traditional adjustment than with an Activator adjustment.  The Activator delivers a direct and precise adjustment that does not require any twisting or pulling.  Individuals typically find the activator method less physically and mentally stressful because there are not as many pops or cracks associated with the adjustment, and the speed of the device means that the muscles do not have time to tense against the force.

What to expect at your appointment?

We will evaluate your symptoms, perform a physical examination and determine which of your vertebrae or extremity joints need to be adjusted.  The Activator will be placed against your skin in the location where the adjustment is to be performed.  The spring loaded device will deliver a force to the location that will push the vertebrae or joint back into its proper position.  This restores movement and reduces inflammation and pain.
