Activator Methods

Activator Methods is the most widely practiced Chiropractic techniques and is known for being safe, gentle, well studied and effective. Activator method uses an instrument to perform the Chiropractic adjustment. The instrument produces enough force to move the vertebrae and stimulate muscles to relax, while producing no extra unnecessary force, in order to remain gentle and comfortable.

This Chiropractic technique is gentle enough, yet effective enough, to be useful for individuals with spinal fusions, degenerative spinal conditions, osteoporosis and extreme muscle spasm. An adjustment with the Activator instrument uses a very quick, precise and measured force to restore proper movement to the vertebrae and move them back into place.

Evolved from 35 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research, the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations to seek joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities for improved patient care. AMCT uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument to give consistent low-force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments. Over 35,000 doctors have been trained in AMCT and 2,100 doctors are Proficiency Rated, making AMCT the most widely used technique worldwide; a testament to low force patient satisfaction.

What makes the Activator Method Technique different?


Restoring your spinal health and body mechanics safely and effectively, has been the compelling goal behind the Activator Method. This technique utilizes specific procedures to detect spinal joint dysfunction, analyze leg length inequality, detect body mechanics problems and test neurological reflexes. With these unique analytical tools, we can begin the process of restoring your overall spinal balance. To address spinal joint dysfunction, we use an instrument called the Activator. This unique hand-held instrument was scientifically designed to give you a very specific, "low force" adjustment. The Activator instrument delivers a controlled, light and fast thrust, without causing undue strain to patients. Activator adjustments are so quick and controlled, your body's muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and exact adjustment.
