What is the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique?

The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. Used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960’s, it brings relief for a variety of health concerns.

Incorporating the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal and extremity adjustments uses research-based analysis and the Activator adjusting instrument to restore musculoskeletal balance safely and comfortably.

Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator Method has grown to become the world’s most widely used instrument adjusting technique. The unique hand-held Activator 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.

How does the Activator Method work?

The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable for the patient. In fact, adjustments with the Activator are so quick and measured, the body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and accurate adjustment.
Patients of all ages and sizes can enjoy the benefits of an Activator adjustment. The controlled, low-force thrust of the Activator Adjusting Instrument, along with the doctor’s ability to pinpoint the exact location of the problem, can relieve a patient’s pain without the added discomfort that manual adjustments can sometimes bring. Our practice is the only one in New Mexico that uses the Activator exclusively and we are pleased to bring you the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique.

Make the Activator Method part of your healthy lifestyle

Though some believe chiropractic care is intended only to relieve back and neck pain, it actually does much more. A wide variety of health problems stem from spinal imbalance and dysfunction. Everyday living, stress and old injuries can cause vertebrae to lose their proper position or motion, irritating your nervous system, causing pain and nerve interference throughout the body.

By restoring spinal balance, chiropractic care aids the body in healing itself. We believe the Activator Method’s safe, effective and gentle low-force adjustments are the very best way to accomplish this goal.
