Activator Methods Chiropractic
Activator Methods adjusting has evolved from nearly 40 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research.
The doctors of Preston Health Collective use a number of adjusting instruments and routinely use the Activator instrument to deliver low-force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments.
Use of the Activator optimizes the conditions necessary to create an effective, accurate, successful adjustment every time it is used. We appreciate the Activator for the many benefits it brings to our care provided, including:
Comfort: Patient comfort is one of the biggest advantages of this type of low force adjusting. The unique design of the Activator allows an adjustment to be applied to the joint while not causing any cracking or popping noises during the adjustment. This allows the client to relax as the Chiropractor adjusts the rest of the spine.
Speed: This refers to the ability of the Activator instrument to deliver the adjustment rapidly every single time it is used.
Variable force: While we all have the same basic structure, no two bodies are alike. The force delivered by the Activator instrument can be turned up or down, depending upon the requirements best suited to each individual person.
Directional specificity: Each bony segment of your spine sits at a unique angle in relation to the bones above and below it. The Activator instrument is set up in the most optimal direction (vector) to benefit the specific joint that is being adjusted.
Accuracy: The small adjusting head of the Activator instrument allows for a very specific contact directly over the joint that needs to be adjusted. This also means we can minimizing the force necessary to make each adjustment.
Consistency: The Activator instrument is designed to repeat this comfortable, fast, specific and accurate instrument with every use.
